  •  Because solar is still too expensive and in many (0+ / 0-)

    places hydro is used to nearly full capacity and wind still doesn't produce enough. That's why we should be going full steam ahead with solar- as Obama has been saying for quite a while.

      doubling our renewable energy production by 2035.

      Sounds a little less than full steam ahead to me.

      But I agree with you that we should be hitting that hard.

      I'd say 100% of residential by 2020. That would be a great move.

      Solar is a hell of a lot cheaper than coal & oil (how much does global warming cost?  And how about the BP disaster?) and a hell of a lot cheaper than nuclear (how much is THIS disaster gonna cost?).

      Read pp. 1-7 of Krugman's _The Great Unraveling_ (available from Google Books). NOW.

      •  Solar got only half the amount allocated for nukes (0+ / 0-)

        so that would indicate that the admin is more in favor of nukes. But that was then, things will be changing, no doubt about that.
