Don't become a "streamer"

You would swear that this was an Onion spoof, but they probably would have had the "streamers" become part of the Soylent Green that everyone is dying for, and then the Soylent Green would at least "taste like chicken".

Yep, don't want to cut the profits of all those big gop contributors in the energy industry!

Instead of mirrors reflecting the sun up to the tanks we need magifiying glasses on top of the tanks magnifying the sun down.

Re: Don't become a "streamer"

Yup, Sally, you nailed the conservatives on that one....nothing brings out the Republicans like green energy intitiatives, and especially killing birds. If they could only combine an incentive to have both magnified rays AND windmill blades killing birds, what a joyuous day it would be in GOP land.

 

And dead babies too...don't forget that conservatives hate babies and want to kill them, too. And puppies...drowning puppies has its own FOX news channel...you probably didn't know that.

Re: Don't become a "streamer"

That's already old technology as the price of PV continues to collapse.

 

Really, really good news. There is some free market stuff there but also a lot of gubmint money- a little Solyndra but a lot of China and Germany (via mandates in that case).

 

Money well spent although there were certainly some huge boondoggles along the way such as cellulosic etoh.

Re: Don't become a "streamer"

How many birds have been killed? You conservatives are always complaining about saving some animal costs y'all money and saving it is stupid! Now because someone is pushing solar energy, you say NO because it harms a few birds! You, sir, are a freaking hypocrite!
