lift up the ladders

Were we marching not for superstition and lies, our rage would build this nation.

David Adams:

Applied Materials is a US company that makes the machinery that produces microchips and another silicon product: solar panels. All 14 solar panels factories built by Applied Materials in the past two years were constructed in Europe, Asia, and …even Abu Dhabi. Revenues in the last 12 months alone were $1.3 billion.

Germany, for example, generates nearly 50% of the world’s solar power and in doing so is a world leader in solar research, engineering, manufacturing, and installations, generating 50,000 new solar industry jobs.

I would add that US solar, by contrast, has yet to equal the kWh output of ONE typical coal-fired power plant.
