You know how people complain how both parties are just the same and all politicians are owned by corporations? Look no further than green energy to call bullshit on that. Solar and wind are endlessly renewable and can easily meet our energy needs even with the crude (relatively speaking) technology we have now. Democrats (most of them) are pushing it. President Obama is pouring billions into it and it’s working. Plant after plant are coming online across the nation. Every MegaWatt produced in this way is that much less dependence we have on dirty fossil fuels or dangerous nuclear power.
Republicans, on the other hand, are doing everything in their power to sabotage it. They’re trying to force the Department of Defense to abandon green technology. Why? Because with their limitless budget and the high priority the Pentagon has put on freeing the military from foreign fuel, it is only a matter of time until they make a breakthrough. Love it or hate it, the military has delivered a great number of technological advances we take for granted. GPS and the internet come to mind. This is something the right glosses over when they claim the government is useless.
Republicans are also trying to stop all government investment in green technology companies. We can’t stop oil subsidies or farm subsidies but solar and wind? Get rid of it!
With the exception of a handful of Democrats that are so obviously owned by Big Oil it’s disgusting, look at how the two supposedly “identical” parties approach the future of energy. It doesn’t get much more clear cut than that.
Sleep tight you filthy liberal scum!
