Re: Backtracking:

There are a lot of factors that influence the climate. I am actually not pro or con on man made climate change. I just think that much of the talk of it is emotional nonsense, and cynical attempts to make money off of faux crisis. In the sense that we don't actually know all that much as a species ...

Re: the market decides - how solar makes a difference.

I have solar panels too and it works the same as in Australia. We sell power to the company in the daytime and draw from them at night. I estimated that it will take me 30 years to get back my money. Why is that Cass? It seems very odd that it takes an average of only 4 years down here to pay off t...

Re: the market decides - how solar makes a difference.

I don't think there is much in the way of home solar systems manufactured in the US. Production was exported to China years ago. Also Australa gets a lot more sunshine than the US. Plus milder winters. That helps! It might even be the final reason why solar electrical energy has taken off here.

Re: the market decides - how solar makes a difference.

I don't see why rooftop solar panels should be so expensive in the United States (unless as a consequence of Trump having slapped some of his legendary high tariffs on imported solar panels from China). ;) Government tax breaks have traditionally driven sales of solar systems in the US. They have g...
