Heat and Light Out West
The Washington Post's new logo: "Democracy dies in darkness"
California can be the Post-er child. Our great Progressive democracy is converting as fast as it can to solar energy to keep the lights on.
When there are weeks of stormy weather--which officials thought will never happen again [note: California has failed to maintain levees and dams--the Federal ones are in decent shape] because of global warming--they will, in the dark, do the facepalm, just like when they forced Californians to throw out old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs. Oops, so CFLs poison the surroundings with mercury. They meant well.
Did you know that backup generators are getting cheaper, lighter, and more efficient?
