Sometimes you really can’t add a lot of words to something that is so clearly ignorant and typical of liberals, particularly “I know what’s best for you” types like Obama.
From Gateway Pundit:
Before signing the $787 billion stimulus package into law on Feburary 17, 2009, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden toured an array of solar panels on top of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The photo-op allowed the President to once again extol the virtues of the coming “green” economy.
According to the Denver Post’s article on the event, “The sun generates enough energy on the museum rooftop to power about 30 homes.” However, that claim cannot be verified at this time, and in fact, seems to be belied by the scant information provided by the museum and other sources.
A 2008 article in the Denver Business Journal sheds further light on the subject. The article notes the total price of the solar array was $720,000. And Dave Noel, VP of operations and chief technology officer for the Museum, was quoted as saying, “We looked at first installing [the solar array] ourselves, and without any of the incentive programs, it was a 110-year payout.” Noel went on to say that the Museum did not purchase the solar array because it did not “make sense financially.”
Additionally, most solar panels have an expected life-span of 20 to 25 years.
This is that barely existent, hyper-expensive so-called “green” energy that Obama will implement in the next year….you know to replace the oil that we are leaving in the ground.
It comes from the same Obama logic that says we must spend massive amounts of money we don’t have in order to lower the deficit.
