Clean renewables are the only sane energy path. Everything else must go. Don’t listen to people whose livelihoods depend upon you making the dirty choice.

Solar Cost Hits World’s New Low, Half the Price of Coal

Chile awarded a contract to sell solar power for $29.10 per megawatt hour (MWh), the lowest ever across the planet.

We would have had clean energy this cheap decades ago if not for the evil machinations of the zombie ghoul Ronald Reagan and his wrecking crew. Reagan literally had solar panels ripped off the White House and ushered in a regressive age of oiligarchs and financial psychopaths.

New EIA analysis shows nukes don’t help reduce carbon emissions under EPA’s Clean Power Plan

In other words, increased investment in nuclear power means decreased investment in cleaner solar power. We can have a nuclear future or we can have a solar future: we can’t have both. And a solar future is cleaner, cheaper and safer.
