Two events have recently occurred which are the direct responsibility of this nation’s illogical left. Both events epitomize the disjointed, schizoid, concepts of the lunatic left’s idea of economy and energy solutions.
For years now, we’ve been preached to about sustainability, energy independence, and more recently, in response to the recession, green jobs.
Latitude shows me this; Utility may cut off power to solar plant And, as many of you would already be aware, Anthony has covered this at WUWT; Fisker Recalling 239 Karma Plug-In Hybrids for Fire Hazard
This first is a story about a plant which is to make material for solar panels in Idaho. Apparently, even before it gets fully operational, it can’t afford to pay its electricity bill! The second is a story about an hybrid auto manufacturer having to recall every single one of the luxury hybrid model, the Karma. Sustainability, energy independence, and green jobs. What we see happening is ideas being pushed which have virtually no chance of success. In Fisker’s case, there’s so many things wrong with what happened and why, a person could write a 500 page book and still not cover everything. So, I’ll just highlight a few. The Karma was made possible only through a U.S. govt. loan guarantee. The bastards opened the production plant in Finland. So, the charade of even creating U.S. jobs didn’t come into play. The pricing for the Karma started at $103,000. Apparently, while we’re closing electric generation plants, the loons thinks it’s a good idea for us to switch to electricity as a mode of transportation.
In the case of the solar plant, one would have thought they could just install some solar panels with the material they make and then have no worries, right? Well, obviously when the company which makes the material knows it wouldn’t work, then we know we’re backing a loser. Sustainability, energy independence, and green jobs.
There isn’t anything sustainable about solar production plants that can’t power themselves. If solar panels can’t power plants which make them, how are they suppose to power the rest of the nation? What is going to charge the hybrids? What happens when we decrease the supply of electricity and increase the demand for electricity? Any rational individual will tell you the costs will increase. The disjointed, schizoid, lunatic left either don’t know this, or don’t care, or are intentionally causing harm to the U.S. economic base. Given the statements of the president prior to his being elected, one must come to the conclusion these actions are intentional. Anyone supporting these insane actions need to check where their loyalties lay. These are your fellow citizens you’re harming. This is our government that you’re bankrupting. Your legacy will be on the equivalent to Judas and Nero.
People want us to switch from cheap reliable electricity to green renewable electricity. They also want us to switch from gasoline powered automobiles to electric powered vehicles. Even if just one of those choices were viable, we certainly can’t do both. If we’re going to engage in delusion fantasy, why stop there? Why not fantasize about being powered from pink unicorn flatulence? Surely that would give us energy independence!
How many green jobs are there in closed production plants? There isn’t any.
No jobs equates to no wealth generation. There isn’t any additional money and in private nor public sector. We can’t afford to keep financing and underwriting insoluble ideas.
We keep hearing from the loons that green technology is the future. If this is the future, our future looks very dark.
