    Do we need more proof that this is a failed industry that IS NOT READY TO GO?

    Yet Obama, in his stupidity will continue to push it, along with the failed Volt

    Did Romney back it with taxpayer money or his own money?

    With all of these green energy failures, just goes to show we should not be throwing money, particularly US Taxpayer Money, at such a failing proposition. I want to thank you for posting such a falicy about Romney. If he is to earn my vote, I need to certain that he has no sites on such failed venture using US taxpayer money.

    They never should have started allowing liquor sales on the Reservations.

    Obama put us ALL on the hook for his "investment".

    The article first calls it a loan, then calls it a subsidy.
    Neither or source-linked.

    How is this industry ever going to get ready to go if no one ever invests in it?

    We don't have a nuclear industry today because some plucky enterpeneurs said "let's do some nuclear stuff". We have it because the government pumped billions of dollars into the project.

    Solar energy is a proven form of energy, guy. The sun is up there and it baths the planet in energy. We just need to learn how to harvest it economically.

    The country that controls the next big thing will be the country that wins.

    If it is viable and marketable private industry and investors will suck it up. Thats how a free marketr works. And I well aware of the industry. Dubai has the planets first magnifying solar collector towers. We are miles and years behind already. But since the sun is both free and abundent it really doesnt matter. Its not like someone can corner the market.
