Remember Bill Gates’ famous quote; “A computer on every desk”? Well, Rodham has one of her own: A Solar Panel on every roof. Unlike Bill Gate’s idea, which actually made sense. Hillary Clinton’s is unfortunately a very terrible one. Solar is expensive and will convert only about 10% of the sun’s light into electrical energy, but the sun only shines for about half the 24 hour cycle, not to mention the seasonal variations and clouds. Not only that, solar panels are bulky in size & therefore tough on a roof, they’re prone to damage from ultraviolet, rain, snow, dirt, temperature fluctuations, hail and wind, etc, and create great difficulty in accessing parts of a roof for maintenance or repairs. In addition…
…not only do you need expensive batteries to store the energy, batteries that lose about 40% of their holding capacity every 2 years or thereabouts, but you’ll need expensive inverters as well for DC-to-AC conversion. And you’ll still need subsidies for anybody to be interested in investing in Solar.
Solar is not the solution, unless it’s used solely as an enabler of the LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction) Ecosystem, i.e. to power the E-Cats, SunCells, and other LENR devices, or even fuel cells if hydrogen production can come down in cost while exponentially increasing in efficiency – we had a lot of hope in Solar Hydrogen Trends for this but it seems their very amazing claims where all untrue.

Hilary’s theme makes for a catchy slogan, like Herbert Hoover’s “A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage” (1928 presidential election). Good Propaganda for winning an election matters more than sound policies, as anyone who pays attention to presidential politics should know by now. Unfortunately, Herbert Hoover’s regressive (but compassionate) economic policies which arguably deepened and prolonged the 1930s depression are also Populist fodder, and are being implemented by the same so-called Progressives.

Yep, politicians will always be politicians, they’re all talk no action. It doesn’t take a very great intellect to come up with a better energy plan than filling up roofs with solar panels.
And by 2027, renewable energy would supply a third of the nation’s electricity. Clinton’s announcement, which the campaign said would be the first of many on climate change from the presidential hopeful, extends the carbon-saving ambition in a significant sector of the economy.
Benny, you sound like you work for the Clinton Campaign.
