I love this solar energy cartoon. Not just because it’s easy to resound with an anti-establishment message, but because I’ve been active on some environmental discussion boards over the past 5 years. There have always, always been some blowhards piping in on why solar energy is not feasible. Reading over comments made by people like this, I can’t help but scratch my head and ask myself:
“Are these people being paid by large oil and gas companies?”
Why would you not want to invest in the future of our energy supply? The technology works, it’s getting more affordable every passing day, and we’ve already reached parity with the electric grid in many areas of the country.
Hundreds of years from now, our great great grandchildren will be astonished we were using coal to generate electricity when the technology to capture energy from the sun, wind, and water flows are abundant.
Perhaps those in control are simply loathe to consider how else they may live the lifestyles they’ve been accustomed to living off of the oil, nuclear, and gas dime.
