Economic vitality. Why arent we talking about these concepts all together? Just last month I saw the articles with photos of solar panels at a Walmart in California, and once again heard how according to the Obama Administration solar power will be an important part of our nations future energy supply. I wholeheartedly agree that we have to diversify our energy resources and find ways to move to cleaner supply sources. And, if the result is less pollution, who would be opposed? I believe, however, that we must be both smart and holistic in our approach. I also think that we cant bemoan income inequality while at the same time adopting energy policies that put low-income and middle-income families in worse economic shape.
I discovered this interesting good news report located on http://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2014/06/13/the-poor-shouldnt-have-to-bear-the-cost-of-solar-power/
