trump golf while Rome burns: A Massive Coal Plant That Asked for Trump’s Help Has Gone Dark

Wind is now cheaper than gas I believe. Gas is certainly cheaper than coal... but small fracters are going out of business by the dozens. The self proclaimed Chosen One could have put our money where his mouth is building wind generating plants, or solar or geothermal which is the most cost effective... Iceland is a world leader in crypto-coin generating because their geothermal energy is so cheap.

Wind engineer jobs are very well paid and tons are needed. Texas is now the biggest wind generator.

meanwhile the coal miners who foolishly believed the biggest swindler in US history are thrown under the bus with all the other people who used to support trump but now are going to jail. Multiple coal power plants have gone under. They just aren't profitable... even if they can dump mercury laden coal ash into the water supplies of poor people.

We are pretty foolish. For example Interstate 8 out of San Diego already has a right-of-way easement from San Diego to Arizona. We should just build solar panels on each side of the freeway. They would produce electrical power an have a readily available easement for power lines. They would provide shade for motorists with car trouble, block freeway noise (deserts are quiet), and would be easily accessible to maintenance. The land is already fucked up. What's not to like.
