Here is a note I sent to a friend in Washington last night.
"Please tell the president to not offer subsidies to the solar industry. Not after giving a nod to offshore drilling, resulting in the disaster in the gulf. Not after putting up 36B more for nuclear guarantees. Well, there goes Japan.
If he does something favorable for someone it goes to hell, and solar is all we have left."
Talk about bad timing!
I really feel bad about the plight of the Japanese. I will be helping by sending money for relief. I think this disaster will be long lasting and catastrophic for Japan's and the world's economy.
