    consumption to such an extent that you don't need to create ever more pollution to put a status symbol on your roof, maybe buy it from a large solar array, which makes a lot more sense to small users.

    You did hit on the point that I was writing about. People love to blame others, have a very difficult time looking at themselves.

    How big is your personal carbon footprint?

    •  Your entire diary is about trying to blame anyone (5+ / 0-)

      but a reckless industry that puts profits before safety time after time.

      Large solar arrays have a place in the grid, but they don't "make more sense".  Rooftop solar, even without subsidy, is rapidly becoming cheaper than buying power from utilities.

      In general, it's cheaper to buy and maintain hard goods than it is to try to fill the bottomless maw of a rent-seeking corporate entity.

      •  well you missed the point then (0+ / 0-)

        my whole diary is about cry baby so called environmentalists whining about energy extraction yet saying nothing about it's use.

        Rooftop solar is only cheaper for energy hogs. If my electric bill is $25 a month no solar rooftop panel anyone can instal for me is going to pay for itself at $25 per month.

        After conservation then worry about gadgets.

        Not every problem is fixed by buying something.
