    Europe’s dogged pursuit of a solar- and wind-powered future has jacked up energy prices for households and low-usage industry alike. You forget that, in typically Looking-Glass fashion, the energy hogs got exempted.

    Don’t be so confident that we will avoid the energy debacle happening in Europe. Yes we’ve done better so far, but Obama, and the democrats generally, are working every day to implement the same policies, or worse, here.

      Thankfully US has a GOP. So Americans can feel confident about their energy future.

    “For families, it has meant higher monthly power bills—a tax felt most keenly by the poor.”

    Is there no socialism in the EU to grant relief to the poor from capitalist constructs like “bills”? I heard there was.

    Whoa, wait a minute! You mean to tell me that green energy is hurting the economy?! What happened to all those green jobs that were supposed to appear? And all that energy…why, it’s practically free! Sunshine! Wind! How could this be? This just doesn’t add up. Someone has some ‘splainin’ to do, I tell ya!

    Solar plants that spend half their time in Earth’s shadow (and a good deal of the rest of the time under cloud cover) make no sense, and never will make any sense.
