The cleanest energy possible is solar.  So naturally, President Pumpkin is trying to strangle the US solar industry in its crib, by announcing this week huge 30% tariffs on components for solar plants in this country.

Meanwhile, out there in the civilized world, companies like Royal Dutch Shell are investing in things like solar plants and charging stations for electric cars.  I hope they can soon do business 100% away from adding more carbon to the atmosphere.

At least some countries are trying to make a world where humans can live in a few decades.  The American plan appears to be, choke the excess population units on its own fumes and vomit.  (That’s you and me, boys and girls.)
