    But five years later the green future looks a long way off. Faced with the need to cut its budget deficit, the Dutch government says offshore wind power is too expensive and that it cannot afford to subsidize the entire cost of 18 cents per kilowatt hour -- some 4.5 billion euros last year.

    What I find particularly odd to the point of funny is how you lack the ability to understand the cost trade offs and extol the environment as if with some religious conviction which makes you no better than some fundamentalists.

    What's happening to the Dutch windmills is already happening in the US but despite it all the Obama Administration continues to encourage new installations and subsidies in wind farms and solar farms that use technology that isn't likely to be viable.

    Correct.


    As you have noted Solyndra is just the tip of the iceberg. Meanwhile Social Security is going bankrupt while many still deny there is even a problem that exists.

    Right-wingers should never attempt humor. It's always a train wreck.


    So said the bitter old man as he yelled at the kids to get off his lawn...
