5. This is a trend that is world wide. The old technologies cannot

adapt, so they are pushing back.

In Spain, rooftop solar PV units are being dismantled to avoid the punitive retro-tax. Having rooftop solar units, whether you are connected to the grid or not, will make the electricity you generate cost more than buying from the grid. The Czech Republic is eyeing a punitive tax for solar and wind.

Meanwhile in Australia, electricity generated from rooftop solar PV has surpassed the 3GW.

Yes, it is causing problems with the electrical companies, but they are looking at solutions, not suppression of solar.

Everywhere should become like Singapore or Beijing. Get a mask.

And in the US, ALEC is proposing a $100 a month tax on rooftop solar PV, because the fossil fuel industry is whining.

Oh, and by the way, there is a new drilling platform at the Deepwater site with oil slicks

1 about 2 miles northeast of it, about 2 nm long and about 100 m wide
2 northwest almost directly from the new platform — this one almost 2 sq nm (4 sq km) in size
3 1 nm to the east, which is about the same size as the smaller one to the north
4 south of here, which was about 1 nm long (north-south) and about 50 m wide.

There are even more, read about it
