    The "3.8 million large wind turbines, 90,000 solar plants, and numerous geothermal, tidal and rooftop photovoltaic installations" can neither build nor install themselves. And no matter how much the cheerleaders for "race to the bottom wages" assert otherwise, the Asian and European nations (also many African nations, much sooner than later)  are going to have their own backlogs of these items to fill for their own needs.

    We'll have to build most of this ourselves.

    We'll have to install ALL of it ourselves.

    And that has the very positive collateral effect of putting millions of us to work for a very, very long time.

    And this is separate and apart from transportation, water management and other towering infrastructure needs we have.
