The conservative on the show today embodies the ignorance and stupidity of their ideals. He said "Silly westerners are buying all the solar panels from china". Of course solar is silly for him because It makes sense. It's silly for him because he can't make money off of it. It really smart for me because we can cover the all the energy used for an entire family and after 5 years IT MAKES FREE ENERGY! Is that really silly? Yes, solar is more expense and there is a reason for that. We have only been producing these things on a large scale for a few years and any new industry is going to be more expensive. If an industry has been around for 50+ years cost of production has been paid for so product can be sold for next to nothing no matter how polluting or inefficient.
The second conservative fairyland world point is that they are afraid of science. Science is forgin to them because we can actually Measure the mercury around these coal plants and we can actually Measure the hydrocarbons in the air produced by combustion. The conservatives call these things silly and rebuke these things because the science makes sense and hurts their bottom line.
