Don't forget "unprecedented", "alarming" and "polar bears"! Propaganda can always use more buzz words.

Minn. energy companies already charge a premium for wind power so consumers can pretend they are saving the planet from CAGW. Large Scale Solar would simply be a waste of money at this point.

toxic topix AGW deniers are scared of the great leaps that wind, solar & alternative energy sources have made. toxic topix AGW deniers nev'r ev'r thunk it so possible that alternatives could be gaining so greatly.

In one technological leap alone, wind turbine gear costs dropped 15% to 20%, & durability, reliability & practical maintenance plunged. Same with solar.

toxic topix AGW deniers & fossil fuel reliers are jealous.
