An article in the NY Times says solar skeptics should be red faced because the prices of home solar has “fallen through the floor” and with high subsidies it is now successful.

The Russians are invading the Ukraine and Mr. Kerry wants diplomatic personnel to push climate change. Sometimes I really wonder about our leaders. Other times I don’t.
