So much for your predictions.......a few years ago it was "predicted" that nuclear generated electricity would be "to cheap to meter". Sure it will......The people making the big money from the current dirty energy sources like it just fine.

The opinions in that article were strictly based on money. A very narrow and selfish focus that we as inhabitants of this planet can no longer afford.
Also the authors assertion that the push for green power is 'unhealthy' is not supported in the text.

"But the high-profile bankruptcy of solar power company Solyndra — shortly after the firm received a $535 million loan guarantee from the U.S. Dept of Energy — reveals the dangers of the nation’s unhealthy obsession with green energy."
NO, it reveals the inability of the Government to use proper oversite of money given out to promote a shift to alternative energy. The government agency GAO is particularly adept at auditing entities for waste. I doubt if the GAO was even asked to look at Solyndra's business plan before the check was cut.
This article has so many biased and uninformed views as to be worthless. The cost of solar and wind is compared on a 'utility' scale. Solar PV in particular is a peak use generation source and is best used installed where the power will be used, not on several thousand acres in the middle of nowhere and then shipped to market. Intermittancy of solar and wind can be accommodated with the engineered addition of "power storage" on the grid. There are some utilities installing MWh battery systems along the delivery grid. The article promotes business as usual, not what can be done to bring new technologies online and how to integrate them into the existing system.
