Watts Up With That?

From John Droz’s newsletter with a hat-tip to Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. for bringing it to my attention and via the “I can hear Joe Romm’s head exploding” department and Electric Light and Power comes this story:

    It’s not like the Chinese have suddenly seen the light. The Chinese were chasing subsidies in Europe and here in the US. Since the countries that made the most generous subsidies are now running out of money and have to cut back the feed in tarriffs, solar no longer pencils out. So we’ve learned a new way to defeat the Chinese economic juggernaut… stop throwing money at technologies that cannot stand on their own.

    China has always been keen on green as long as someone else can make it pay for them. And if it works, they get the technology and then manufacture the pants off of all the green jobs applicants in the US. Only the socialists are silly enough to think that any R&D we do on solar, wind, water, geothermal, … will stay here and be the key to employing our faithfully Democrat voting undereducated dimwits. Their best hope is to go straight for a government job where they can become the grit that lubricates a collective economy.

    Pappy always used to say, ‘Them Chinese be clever people.’
