Imagine, in just a few years, solar shingles on your brand new custom house (all you high school graduates) that cost no more than regular shingles, that will power everything in your house, heating, AC the whole deal. Imagine crops that don’t need soil (OK, maybe hydroponics) and no water (oops) and no fertilizer. Magic crops. “Literally just around the corner.”
And of course none of that can happen if the eeevil Republicans are in power. Only more of ‘bama’s stash money can make the magic happen. The private markets? Meh. All that’s done is fail continuously for 200+ years, apparently. What’s been happening in the last few years– that’s the ticket, Baby.
Now if kids actually learned science, physics, biology or basic economics, they’d laugh that gibbering idiot off the podium. This is where our Soviet-style education system comes in. Of course now anyone can look up maximum and average available energy per unit area at their latitude at various times of the year, and the efficiency of the best PV panels, take into account the problem of tracking, or in the case of your magic roof shingles the lack of tracking, and so on. And naturally, to get the most out of your magic solar roof shingles you’ll have to cut down the trees that shade your house, increasing the AC load. Or maybe not, being as they’re magic and all.
He had a teleprompter, so I have to assume that he didn’t make that up as he went along. There had to have been some planning behind it.
The Moron in Chief, to make himself look better by comparison, had pick the stupidest fool he could find I guess, and then put him out there to show the contrast, such as it is.
