Discussion: Solar Energy in America
Thanks to Fox News and its expert commentators, millions of Americans now understand the real, hidden reason why Germany's solar-energy industry is so much further along than ours. Turns out it has nothing to do with the fact that Germany's government has long supported the industry far more generously, with policies like feed-in tariffs that stimulate investment in green technologies. No, the real reason is much simpler, explained a trio of journalists on Fox & Friends: It's always sunny in Germany!Fox and Friends "expert", Shibani Joshi, claims solar energy will never work in the U.S. (esp. the east coast) because we don't get enough sunshine. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry.
