While Back On Earth…

Renewable energy just keeps growing.  Moving into small town America.

If you had any trouble discerning that Donald Trump was a lying phony, if you knew nothing else, his nonsensical assertion of the war on coal and that the coal jobs were going to come back was all you needed to know.

As the great David Roberts, formerly of Grist and now of Vox writes:

I am pessimistic about a great many things, as regular readers know, but this trend is a source of optimism. Clean energy is going to seep into rural areas, where the Donald Trump voters live. It’s going to present an opportunity for economic development in places that badly need it. And as it spreads, it will gain cross-partisan legitimacy and economic clout, exerting bottom-up pressure on policymakers.
