OMD the evil oil companies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The oil companies for the most part don't care about solar or wind, let me say that again
THE OIL COMPANIES DON"T CARE ABOUT SOLAR AND WIND POWER.
The answer is simple for anyone with a little knowledge of economics and science. See Solar and wind are geared to generate electricity (even though the electricity is much more expensive than what we pay for electricity currently. As a matter of fact oil accounts for only 1% of the electricity generated in the US.
OIL DOESN"T COMPETE with Solar or Wind. Oil is used primarily for TRANSPORTATION not generating electricity. IN this country we use Coal, Natural Gas & Nuclear to generate ~ 97% of our electricity. Those are the Energy Sources that WInd and Solar are attempting to compete with.
So if this guy has whatever association with an oil company who cares? How would that motivate him to giv bad info on Solar & Wind? His suppose 'patrons' don't care.
Although BP and others are lining up at the trough for their government grants if the stupid cap and trade is passed. Maybe even Exxon after dem Senator Jay Rockefeller is a major shareholder in Exxon/Mobil (which his great great grandfather founded) . I am sure they will get grants from cap and trade to 'invest' in wind
You really need to try and learn something and try thinking for yourself instead of parroting idiotic smears from the Morons at media matters.
