An "friend" recently sent a photograph of him standing by the newly vacant Solyndra building. He was pointing and basically saying, look, here is another Obama failure. This got me to thinking, yes Solyndra was not successful (at this time). We as a nation really need to kick ourselves into high gear and begin to invest in alternative energy. Remember record albums?, no, how about 8 track tape? how about cassette tapes?, no how about CDs ahhhh yes CD's, just about gone. That is progression, and we need now to think about progression. In 2010 alone, The Chinese Development Bank handed out $30 billion in low-cost loans to the top five manufacturers in the China. "The Chinese strategy is very clear. Bryan Ashley, the Chief Marketing Officer for Suniva, an American company that produces high-efficiency solar cells in Georgia, doesn't mince words. They are engaging in predatory financing and they're trying to drive everybody else out of the market. When you've got free money you can out-dump everybody below cost,"( http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/sep/12/how-china-dominates-solar-power).
We need to begin now, not later when the market is saturated, but now. We here in the US seem to be satisfied with putting band-aids on our problems, and not looking into the future. What is it going to take to get us on top again. Let's get our country moving to the top.
