Solar Inefficiency: More solar workers than coal miners in U.S. but coal provides 210 times more electricity

The heavily subsidized solar industry is little more than workfare.

Grist reports that solar workers now outnumber coal miners.

Coal provided 42% of U.S. electricty needs in 2011.

Solar provided 0.2% of global electricity needs in 2011.

You do the math.

  3. It is easy to see why wind powered electricity is three times as expensive as coal generated electricity.
