The GOP’s hatred of green energy reminds me of their hatred for LED bulbs.

    It is this simple......

    The left wingers decided, in their usual, irrational way.....that CFLs were good....that meant you must have them whether you wanted them or not....and if you refused, they would slowly ramp up the penalties to punish you for your obstinance....

    Your beloved windmills work just 12-22% of the time. They are unreliable and sporadic needing base load generation to keep the lights on...

    More bull shit from left wing fools who haven't a clue how bad their beloved wind crap is..

    The first LED bulbs WERE expensive. Thank the free market that you were able to fill your house with them without a second mortgage. Republicans love technology that works. Democrats, OTOH, judge things by their emotional impact.

    I tried every crappy new-agey bulb around...and returned to incandescent. All the new junk has only one thing going for it, that being it uses slightly less electricity. Big friggin' deal! They all put out less light, and the light they do put out is of lower quality, and yes, I got a light meter. All burn hotter than incandescent, jacking up the temperature, which in turn requires more electricity for air conditioner or fans. One type poisons landfills. The other sort has a shorter life than incandescent. Both kinds are more expensive than incandescent, maybe not by much, but you still end up paying more for getting less. These hippy-dippy innovations are not how I would define innovative, so I'll be sticking with the old-fashioned sort.

    I think this is just a novel new variant on the established pattern of left wrong-wing retards trying to define basic decency, sanity, and common sense as “hatred”. In this case, the “hatred” is the recognition that certain things promoted as environmentally-friendly are significantly lacking in economic feasibility.
