Trump’s minions like to say we need coal, gas for energy because it’s unreasonable to expect renewables to satisfy our energy needs. So what does Trump do? He increases tariffs. Already the industry is feeling the effects. Sounds like a circular argument but not unexpected from someone who seems to make decisions based on the Fifties, doesn’t take the time, nor have the capacity to understand anything more complicated than a 3 bullet point paper.
Australia and Cuba are both prime examples of countries that understand the reasons for going renewable. And most importantly are willing to subsidize the conversion and face and solve the issues associated with the conversion.
