    Maybe Chu and Obama can operate a Green hedge fund when his one term ends?

    So it's CON contention that ALL research and development costs should be 100% recoverable?

    Is that how businesses do it? ONLY make investments that they are CERTAIN to get a return on?


    Jeez CONZ...it doesn't work that way in the FUCKING STOCK MARKET...why the FUCK do you think it works for R&D? Did it EVER occur to you low grade morons that sometimes government NEEDS to drive innovation...like it did with the microprocessor....so we could go to the moon? Gee, that didn't pay any dividends at ALL did it? How many dead ends did we hit on our way to THAT technology? Did we QUIT when we hit them?

    Way to argue for the past, CONZ...instead of trying to FORM THE FUTURE!


    Popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson on Monday lamented that American culture no longer had a culture of innovation that prized scientific and technological discoveries.

    Tyson noted on MSNBC that space exploration no longer captured American’s attention like it previously had. He blamed the lack of public interest on the lack of advances in the space frontier.

    “You don’t have to be the scientist or engineer,” he explained. “You could be a journalist, an artist, but you start doing more stories about the frontier and all of a sudden everybody participates in inventing a tomorrow.”

    “It’s the invention of tomorrow that is absent in today’s modern American culture,” Tyson continued.

    “Tomorrow was everywhere in the 1960s, wasn’t it? The World’s Fair was all about tomorrow. And who enables that tomorrow? It is the scientific and technological literacy of a nation that does it. It is those innovations that are the engines of the 21st century economy.”

    He added that private companies could not lead the space frontier, because of unknown risks and other factors that were detrimental to business.

    “That is why governments are the ones that do the big first steps.”

    China Leads Global Investments in Renewable Energy - Commodities & Futures


    The world's largest consumer of energy, China, is poised to spend $473.1 billion on clean energy investments in the next five years.



    The world's largest consumer of energy, China, is poised to spend $473.1 billion on clean energy investments in the next five years. The planned investment is part of China’s 12th Five-Year Plan for Economic and Social Development (2011-2015) wherein the country envisions it would have an installed solar energy capacity of 10 gigawatts by the end of the period. The country also aspires that 20 per cent of its total energy demand be sourced from wind power and solar energy utilization by 2021.



    China European Union India Renewable Energy Investment The investment, according to Wang Yuqing, deputy director of the National Commission on Population, Resources and Environment, is part of government efforts to develop a green economy and promote environmentally friendly industries amid its growing population and rapid urbanization.

    The planned investment is part of China's 12th Five-Year Plan for Economic and Social Development (2011-2015) which aims for an installed solar energy capacity of 10 gigawatts by the end of the period.

    China also wants 20 per cent of its total energy demand to be met by wind and solar by 2021.

    In 2010, the world's second-largest economy invested over $47.31 billion in various renewable energy sources projects.

    Hillbilly Report:: Republicans Wave the White Flag to Communist China


    Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL), who chairs an energy and commerce subcommittee on oversight and investigations, originally supported the program when Congress created it.
    When Stearns, the Republican hosting the hearings on Solyndra, was asked about the seemingly low-risk revenue models of many of the loan guarantee recipients, he acknowledged those might be safer bets. But he still doesn't like the idea of government putting taxpayers on the line for other ventures.

    "We can't compete with China to make solar panels and wind turbines," Stearns says.

    He says he doesn't believe in any type of subsidy for industry. And, he says, where solar is concerned, it makes more sense to invest in research and development on a technology where the U.S. still has a chance of winning.
