More compelling if Romney’s own campaign didn’t fact check him that less than 1% of alternative energy companies invested in by the government have gone bust. I also don’t get Romney attacking Elon Musk of Tesla Motors, they are paying back their loan, planning to accelerate the rate, and Musk is worth at least ten times Romney, so by the right’s measuring stick he is ten times the job creator.
The ARRA earmarked only about $21 billion for wind and solar. It hasn’t all been spent yet. Only three of the 33 companies that received loans have failed — representing less than 2 percent of money budgeted.
Or solar, Or nuclear(my preference), Or hydro electric, Or wind, Or fusion in the future, etc.
Either way however, Coal is 100% American employing Americans through the entire supply chain, And pollution is easier to deal with when produced at a centralized location such as a power plant, And to be clear even when obtaining power from a coal based power plant the amount of pollution released is still far less then that of gasoline.
The important part about electric vehicles is that you can generate their charge from a long list of different sources each with their own ups and downs.
