Ignoring the merits or demerits of New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman's op/ed yesterday advocating tax breaks for solar and wind power, his (apparently unironic) quotation from a clean tech lobbyist was hilarious. To wit:
It is also alarming, says Rhone Resch, the president of the Solar Energy Industries Association, that the U.S. has reached a point "where the priorities of Congress could become so distorted by politics" that it would turn its back on the next great global industry — clean power — "but that's exactly what is happening."
Distorted by politics? Congress? Who would have thunk it?
