    and have discussed this with actual Germans

    And they don't shy away from admitting the actual, and large, costs associated with their dalliance with "green" power.  They right up front admit that it's fuckin' expensive.  But the right thing to do.  I kinda admire them for that, in fact.

    By contrast, the insistence of Americans to sweep the costs under the rug remains baffling to me.  Can't we make an argument that this is worth doing, despite its costs, based on the underlying merits?  

    He hehe eheh , as this discussion has shown, clearly not.  D'ohh!!

    •  oh, well (5+ / 0-)

      actual Germans. Then shut my mouth!

      You can make an argument that what it actually costs is expensive. However, your argument has been to use costs from 13 fucking years ago.

      oh, and FYI - the plural of "anecdote" is not "data".

      Kiss my ass. This is a Holy Site...
