  •  my back of the envelope calculations for the US (12+ / 0-)

    was 2 trillion for ALL of our electricity.

    we've wasted 1.5 trillion in wars.

    but you know, solar can't be done.

    now my calcs didn't include costs to maintain some sort of baseload, but still. 2 trillion and we could hands-down shut down every coald plant in the US.

    The never ending wars have gotta to be one of the greatest failings of leadership in the history of the US.

    Not only have we sacrificed 100s of thousands of our young people to the military (damaged from  their experience), 100s of thousands of CIVILIANS, but we've got absofuckinglutely nothing to show for it - except for pictures of OBL's body.
