Tossing away money on technology that will never work.

Let the Chinese invest everything into a fallacy for energy conservation. Solar Power works so good in the UP of Michigan during the winter that Michigan exports energy to Canada (sarc). The UP of Michigan has a problem not enough sun that many of us have to take Vitamin D supplements because not enough exposure to solar light.

This con game of government green industry investments was never meant to be anything other than shuffling public tax revenues into private bank accounts, or Progressive campaign chests, or both.
As for China, “As long as countries like China keep going all-in on clean energy,” how bogus, what an outright damn false statement. The air in Chinese cities is unbreathable due to pollution!

"The company is losing hundreds of millions of dollars a year, and its stock is plummeting."
Peaked at about $67.00, in 2007 -- about $1.25 today. A drop of over 98%.
The libs love spending our money on things no one would ever buy himself. It's sort of like how they advocate a foreign policy that eschews our national interests.
We can never be punished enough.

I wonder how much real-time solar electricity/(uW) is generated per Chinese citizen in their home country.
Something I stumbled across that's very interesting. It says what we all know to be true about wind not being feasible and suggests what I have suspected about possible damage done by thousands of windmills.
Study: Wind power's role overestimated
"People have often thought there's no upper bound for wind power -- that it's one of the most scalable power sources," Harvard University applied physicist David Keith says.
The thought is based on the belief gusts and breezes aren't likely to "run out" on a global scale in the way oil wells might run dry, he said in a Harvard release Monday.
But an atmospheric modeling study, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, suggests a law of diminishing returns when it comes to the largest of wind farms.
Every wind turbine creates a downwind "shadow" in which the air has been slowed by drag on the turbine's blades, so turbines have to be spaced far enough apart to reduce the effect of these wind shadows.
Its basic high school physics children. I'm a highschool dropout and even I know that when you convert kinetic wind energy into electricity, you have lost that kinetic wind energy.
