This writer obviously has bought into Obama's "Dreams from My Father" neoanticolonialist ideology which is to make the U.S. poorer and the poor nations richer and the green energy initiatives fit right into it. She either knows what I am alleging or she is woefully ignorant that Obama's primary objective is to bring us down economically to the level of poorer smaller nations and put business and manufacturing and anything that would produce jobs under government control. For example he used taxpayer money to bailout GM and Chrysler and then as a condition they placed themselves under Govt control to the point Obama fired their chairman and put his own Chairman in that seat he bows to Obama's orders.

Mr. Evers has evidently never heard of the "race to the bottom" which has to do with corporations, not Obama.

Meanwhile, with so many like Terry Evers we keep falling behind other countries that are creating jobs in green energy, notably Germany, Spain, and China.
That stuff in the ground will not last forever, it takes huge amounts of water to produce fossil fuel and nuclear energy, we're tearing up mountains and poisoning the oceans for it because it is getting scarcer and harder to get to and MORE EXPENSIVE.
Nuclear energy is not viable in any country without government subsidies and it has a ton of dangerous problems.
Fossil fuels will only get more expensive while renewables are getting cheaper by the day.
