solar resources map NRELMedia Matters last week released an article on the “8 Most Absurd Attacks On Clean Tech In 2013.” It’s some good/ridiculous stuff. For the full article, just click that link. I’ll just paste the list (without the intro and extra paragraphs on each) below, adding articles to our own stories about some of these below the relevant list items.

1. Fox Business Reporter: Germany’s Solar Industry Better Than U.S.’s Because “They’ve Got A Lot More Sun Than We Do.”

    Faux news dominated by Fox News!

    I think the egg on Fox’s faces is starting to stick due the frequency it has been applied. Those faces are becoming an omelette with long blonde hair.

    The problem with being on the wrong side of history, is instead of making history, you become history.

    One can only be wrong so many times before eventually, even the least informed will finally catch on, feel a tinge of embarrassment, winch and look away.

    Happy New Year All.
