teh USA has been a cargo cult from southwest asia,
primarily, for years, hence "the God-am deficit,"
which was just parlayed on NPR into an official programme
of austerity, via some rating agency (Standard and Poor's?)

the only part of "AGW" that cannot stand-up
to actual analysis of real datasets [*],
is "global," because Eaaarthsceintists, in general,
do not comprehend spherical geometry,
let-alone spherical trig.  (also,
plenty of studies show that the first impression
of the diminution of Eaaarth's most volatile ice
in the daytime of the Arctic floatilla, is silly,
as well, as well-documented occurences
of the Northwest Passage -- book your cruise!

So would and will everyone else, that is why renewables will explode given a
bit of a nudge IMHO.

If you personally choose to pay for your panels I don't see why everyone
else shouldn't be just grateful for your investment?

Good, could be more though!

There should be NO subsidies.  Either it stands on its own, or it doesn't.

One of the unappreciated and perhaps unintended consequences of subsidies
is the destabilizing positive feedback it causes.  Those who get
subsidies constitute a special interest group, who then reinvest some of
the subsidies in buying politicians who will increase the subsidies in
exchange for campaign donations.  Look what's happened to corn ethanol.

If it needs subsidies, why do it?  Private investors are savvy enough to
make a buck or two on new businesses, since when are bureaucrats better
investors than the private sector?
