This week the German solar power plants produced a world record 22 gigawatts of electricity per hour — literally half of the energy used through the key midday hours in the country.
This is a huge accomplishment and Germany is to be congratulated. Meanwhile, here in the States, we arr going in the opposite direction, killing subsidies, tax credits, and R&D for renewable energy.
As we return to an oil and coal emphasis on energy, the Germans are expanding their control over this industry and reducing the health costs of pollution for their population. It is the very definition of leadership and vision that is so lacking in our own country.
Seemingly the US prefers to argue endlessly about most everything rather than be unified and work together towards common goals.
