    energy companies....

    Consol Energy..big here in PA, was and remains a giant in coal, the largest underground coal miner in the country, but has also gotten big in natural gas with reserves exceeding 4 billion cubic feet (Wikipedia).  If and when they wake up to reality and stop trying to deny climate change, they might get invested in alternative energy.

    And EVERY form of energy needs trained people to make it work....electronics transmission systems, computer controls, access roads, construction, repairs and maintenance, home and business unit installations, sales and marketing and on and on.

    Free markets would be a great idea, if markets were actually free.

      on to a dying industry (which is killing the planet along with its own death), we should be developing alternatives and training people to manage them, as well as educating people who will find even better alternatives in the future.

      While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
