Wowzers! A 700% increase in solar by the year 2020! And only at the low,low price of $700 billion dollars Not including interest. Well because we would have to print that, and borrow that money. I am left wondering if them will be China's, India's solar panels. Can't say for sure at the moment.

I do so love spending near a trillion dollars on a technology that for it to work depends on the climate, and the Clinton's, and her predecessors say the 'climate is the greatest threat to us all'. Because it's getting violent 'lately'. No telling what it might do!.



Like Obama, Hillary Clinton wants tackle global warming as well. One of her policy positions is to increase solar power by 700 percent by 2020 at the cost of $700 billion. Right now, solar generates 20 gigawatts (GW). A 700 percent increase would boost output to 140 GW within that time frame, which is tight. As American Action Forum noted, it’s going to take an enormous amount of land to meet the needs of Clinton’s ambitious solar project:


Clinton's grand delusions.

And yeah people where is all that land gonna come from ? They gonna get the BLM to declare gnats, and other critters 'endangered' to steal it from the states, and the people?

I have said this before, and I will say it again. If we could harness the hot air from our politicians, and bottle it. We could solve the worlds energy needs for the next two millennia.

Any how that's my opinion, and I am sticking to it.

What say you oh wise readers ?

They can start by making it easier to get off the grid and the bs with having to have it approved by your provider.

Leave it to politicians to solve the world's issues. Always. Specialists , scientists know nothing . Always follow what the politicians . How many 100s of millions of dollars did the US people lose on the Obama green energy give-aways to the solar energy folks ? And here we go again. Another one gonna start the same BS. Stop the madnesss .

The only ones that get anything out of these give-aways are the politicians themselves.

Geosynchronous satellites beaming power back down to the planet would be a good start. Maybe that'd kick off our exodus into space and relieve some tension on our already overburdened planet.

How come Conservatives are always whining about how we're going to go broke if we do something to stop polluting the freaking air we breathe or the water we drink....or heaven forbid help our people with medical care, food stamps, and education but yet they always seem to come up with trillions of dollars for wars?

Why?

Many people have gone off the grid with solar panels and been denied why? Their solar panels will provide MORE energy than they need! Therefore? They are forbidden by the state to use it!

I can't find the article to back up what I just said, but I did find this!

Solar energy customers denied access to grid

What grid? Why do they have to have permission? Isn't it about saving the planet? I guess not! It's nothing more than spending tons of money and feeling good about yourself, UNTIL, the government tells you, your not allowed!

And people wonder why no one believes in Climate Change?

Care to stay on topic or bash the OP because your faith is different than theirs?

I am really interested in what you have to say about saving the planet, when the government proves to be hypocritical to the sermon they preach!

OK why now? Why not some 10 years back? I bet she is just trying hard to recover her chances for presidential election now that her email server has surely put a dent in her reputation and potential loss of trust from the public eye.

I am sure the people of America has had it with the Clintons and Bushes! They don't deserve a second chance in my humble opinion.

Peace

How come LIBERALS are always whining about the climate, and keep acting like the EPA, and stuff like the CLEAN AIR ACT doesn't exist ?

Because they do.

Neo, brother you were all over the place in that OP, I found it hard to grasp what you're trying to say really.


So I'll stick with just one of the topics you brought up.



The climate may very well be a danger, but the Sun is always going to be there.
Solar power is a good thing.


But alas, they say too much of anything is bad for you, 700% does seem excessive for a 5 year plan.


When Hillary stops receiving money from Oil barons I'll believe her about her concerns for the environment.

What grid?


Don't know about others, but personally I would rather have a power source that is BOTH independent of the climate, and grid.

And works 24/7 regardless of the weather, and regardless of 'fuel'.

The sooner our dependence on oil and coal ends the better.


Wind and the Sun will always be there so why are we not taking advantage of it?

Interesting you bring climate into the mix. It's a valid talking point, but do take note as efficiency increases, grid parity is reached in areas where solar is not optimal. That's a trend which will only increase, meaning eventually (and not too far off in the future) climate will be irrelevant.

My thoughts are that it's an ambitious goal with good intentions, but perhaps unnecessary. As grid parity is reached, consumers demand solar. I have options for solar/wind generated electricity either on my residence setting it up my own, else choosing a provider which guarantees a percentage of juice coming from a green source. Subsidizing the growth essentially means forcing a drop in cost. It's a good thing, but the cost has been decreasing per watt installed pretty dramatically over the years.

As for the supposedly very high price, yea no. You don't seem to be considering the alternatives. Conventional plants aren't cheap, nor are the health costs from being exposed to the coal plants and petrochemicals, nor the long-term climate change economic losses, nor is the efficiency in the long run matched... I mean really there's probably dozens of things to consider to make that number have any true meaning as to being costly or not.

Hillary is scared of getting Sun-Berned.

or, out-winded.

Ask Liberal Democrat Madame Secretary about her secret wars,
the price tag for Libya? ( including the hidden costs of her "email
preferences" and secret server and her secret adviser Sid Blumenthal
and his errant advice)

Beyond that, ask potential POTUS Clinton about details of how a
700% increase in solar anything might work, she will likely respond
" I have no idea"

Did you even look at the link I provided? The government is forbidding people for using solar energy because they are being denied to be hooked up to the grid! WHAT GRID? They no longer need it right?

Utter BS! Follow the money!

It's way better, you wouldn't need land if you can mount a few solar panels on your roof...


And still leave the American dream!

Ya know Xuen.....I might be missing something here, I have definitely ate crow in the past, but in this case? Why is Obama strutting his ass up a mountain in Alaska, saying climate change in a matter of "National Security", and yet THE GOVERNMENT, is penalizing people who use solar panels, just because they don't have permission?

Must be because when I went to school we didn't have "Common Core"? Meh........I will continue to find a God that will listen to me and escort me off this mad planet.......

I think she would respond like that.
