Hmm. I predict a very good year for solar cell industry. Not so sure about 2014, tough.
While eurogreen does the job to dismantle the class hypothesis, let me just note that the above is like a definition of concern trolling: talk up a nonexistent public concern.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
I think that the concerns that Thomas is bringing up are sincere, and that it's unfortunate that you're implying otherwise.
I understand your concerns, it's just that I think you're waltzing near the fallacy that any investment in any type of renewable energy ever is going to be economically efficient, at least in terms of the effect on consumer electric prices.
There is an economic case for renewable electricity, however arguing that it always exists, no matter the circumstances, provides fodder for those who argue that it never can exist.
And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
Deeming an argument concern trolling is not a personal attack but an attack of the argument, and I stand by it.

So should you, because if ever the public gets the idea into its head that "green" means "fuck the poor" the cause of sustainability will suffer immense damage.
the utilities, in connivance with energy -especially oil/nukes- companies, and complicit, well-rewarded politicians have been fucking the poor six ways from sunday for decades with enron scam level and worse money games, ridiculous tax breaks for the screwers and multiple rate and bill increases, suppression of clean energy source harvesting, pollution and war for the screwed.
'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
