Solar World Round Up - 9/18/09

The massively tax payer subsidized dirty energy sector big agriculture, big coal, big oil and the massively tax payer subsidized nuclear power industry are relics of the last century.

I know too many people later in life employed by the nuclear power industry that are horribly afflicted with cancer. So health care costs are also an issue to grapple with for nuclear power.

The status quo has to get out of the way of innovation and technology. The government needs to level the playing field.

We are behind the times because the Status Quo and their minions are still raking in a ton of money from tax payer subsidies and price fixing. Suffering from a serious lack of vision our economy lags behind the rest of the world.
