“It's time! The scientific, biological and moral imperative is to force a transition away from fossil fuels by any combination of strategies. Our atmosphere, oceans and ecosystem are what they are. Putting economics ahead of biological reality is anti-evolutionary for our and every other surviving species. There can be no "economy" without a stable climate, corporate disinformation notwithstanding.”

“and to preemptively head off any slow cons complaining that solar is expensive, consider these articles.

the primary reason solar isn't cheaper in the US, is we heavily subsidize our fossil fuel industry. yay for taxpayer subsidies. "free market", right cons?

New Mexico Utility Agrees To Purchase Solar Power At A Lower Price Than Coal

“"In the twelve months through February 2014, utility scale solar power generated 10.09 million megawatt-hours, 0.25% of total US electricity."

0.25% of total electricity from solar, and already more solar jobs than oil and coal combined.

imagine if we took that to 25% of our electricity generation.”

“dealing with climate change is NOT a negative for the economy (which you implied).

solar already employs more americans than oil and coal combined.
http://www.occupy.com/article/solar-power-industry-now-employs-more-us-workers-coal-and-oil-combined

imagine how many jobs would be created not only producing solar equipment to power the country, but installing and maintaining it as well. I have no problem supporting american solar (Sunpower has the most efficient panels currently, anyway).”

“Whenever we can, we need to teach about the importance of valuing and learning from elders. The young today tend to have less and less access to that ancient wisdom. Thank you, Mother Talley, and thank you to those who got her story out.”

Seiena Cyrus on May 26, 2014 at 15:21:48

“Mostly because people (that I've met anyways, on line and off, not saying that all people are this way) actively call the elderly stupid and racist and so on and so forth, and wish they'd all just die. They are often times seen as a drain not for what they lived through. I have two rules that in another doing so will make me angry. Respect the dead you don't have to like them or say good things about them just don't disrespect them (I had a grudge against my aunt till the day she died, but I still made sure she was buried the way she wanted to be buried, and I didn't sing songs like Ding dong the witch is dead, because that's just not right), and respect your elders (My grandmother and I don't always get along, but I attribute it to her rough life, and her upbringing. I accept those parts of her, and I enjoy listening to her stories and when I have questions she often has answers making her a valuable resource of information).”

“The Kochs and other ultrawealthy ultrarightwingers are trying to turn back the clock so that a new kind of feuda/ism will be run not by monarchies, but by corporations. "Smaller government," "budget cuts,” "less taxes," can sound good, but the international agenda is to make government dysfunctional so as to justify privatizing everything, especially schools, thereby increasing social inequality. It's a new version of an old idea - that only "superior people" deserve to run everything. Look up ALEC Exposed and how the Kochs finance the “State Policy Network” to try and control state governments and policies.

Before the Reagan administration, the income of the wealthiest was 26 times the average American income, and now it is 270 times the average. That change is part of a larger corporate agenda led by the Koch bros. and their ilk.

This is a conflict that has actually been developing for centuries coming to a head - a conflict between corporate control of everything vs. a representative form of government.”

“We have this going on in many republicans controlled states. With Kansas Sam Brownback was able get all these tax cuts passed. Eventually the top tax rate will be 3.9% instead of 6.4. I don't know what that 2.5% in tax cuts will do for those rich people but they mention Kansas has already accumulated 500 million dollars of debt in 2014 just due to those tax cuts.

In this case you have republican that didn't have a plan to pay for those tax cuts. It's like what happened when Bush was president. Some of these republicans don't understand the basic concept that tax cuts don't pay for themselves. We have republicans still trying what Reagan and Bush did. We have republicans governors passing tax cuts because they think this could create jobs. We know this has never worked. There isn't sufficient evidence to prove that tax cuts create more jobs or help the economy.

We have some states like Wisconsin where Scott Walker tries to make tax cuts sound like a good thing. These republicans like Scott Walker will try to sell this idea that tax cuts are good thing. People will get bought into the idea that receiving a $150 tax refund check from the state is a good thing. Those politicians obviously care about people keeping more of their hard earned money. You have to realize what they are doing also benefits those rich people.”
