33. Germany has managed to figure it out

 

Germany leads the world in Solar photovoltaics.

But since the US Media largely ignores it, many don't know.

Let's ask them how to do it, since most of our scientists are working on killing "terrorists"



Solar power in Germany

Germany is the world's top photovoltaics (PV) installer, with a solar PV capacity as of December 2012 of more than 32.3 gigawatts (GW). The German new solar PV installations increased by about 7.6 GW in 2012, and solar PV provided 18 TWh (billion kilowatt-hours) of electricity in 2011, about 3% of total electricity. Some market analysts expect this could reach 25 percent by 2050. Germany has a goal of producing 35% of electricity from renewable sources by 2020 and 100% by 2050.

The sooner Americans realize that their government doesn't want energy independence the sooner we can elect people that do.

It's only been how long since the first embargo?
