Almost everyone is waiting for someone else to get off their butt and make America greener. The great majority of people with excessive money, won’t lift a finger to help the growth of solar and wind energy.
A product needs a buyer, and the wealthy seem to be more concerned about having too many cars and houses and idly soaking up sun on distant shores. When their power goes out, laugh at them, the unprepared for power outage days. Ask them, can you not afford power back up?
Socialist minded simple thinkers say, government, build us solar panels and wind mills. The USA was not built by politicians. A better question would be: Why doesn’t the government buy more solar panels and wind mills to provide electrical energy for government owned buildings? Why do they not set an example? Are they too busy soaking up the sun, also, or too busy having million dollar parties?
Government response to making America greener, seems to be, let us tax you more and we will provide for you. Who can build more solar panels and wind mills, a few lottery winners of grants, or thousands of workers filling orders for purchases of solar panels and wind mills?
The government, as well as the rich, could order solar energy equipment from the private sector and save on their power bills, while creating real jobs. Isn’t it time to offer jobs to people that are struggling, as opposed to people that want to add wealth to wealth?
Many of the wealthy can sit back and pay higher prices for fuel, while disregarding the effects on their nation’s economy and the population in general. They won’t run out of fuel, money talks.
The Nonchalant Rich,
Is it their time to speak?
What might be their tweet?
If you are in a ditch,
That is your problem not mine.
Why should I be inclined
To talk to you?
You can’t pay higher prices for fuel
And get to work?
If you don’t have money,
You must be a jerk.
Who cares, if you only get one meal a day?
Praise me. See how smart I am.
Cram down some cheap food.
You can have my left over stew.
I’ll just look down on you and grin.
Worship me and my accomplishments.
I may toss you a few dollars,
Every now and then.
Well, your time is up,
I’ve more important things to do,
Than to talk to you.
You are wasting my time.
