Never Forget


The GOPerBase wants a wall because they can't deal with ideas that people had after 1200AD. No vaccines, geocentric Universe, flat earth, slavery okay, and of course Government of, by and for the wealthy.

 

Germany has been installing solar panels in the median strip of the autobahn for several years now, but that's nothing compared to some of the other projects in Progressive countries:

The TuNur project- 4,000 MW solar – Tunisia

TuNur is a solar power project in Tunisia aiming to exploit the country’s competitive advantage in solar radiation and available space in order to power Europe. Located in a newly established solar complex in Southwest Tunisia, the project will use the Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) technology deploying parabolic mirrors connected to molten salt energy storage in a surface of more than 5,000 hectares- an area almost 3 times the size of Manhattan. Power will be sent to Europe via cables under the Med.

 

Asian Renewable Energy Hub (AREH) – 6,000 MW solar/wind – Australia 

An international consortium of energy companies has recently presented its plans to export colossal amounts of solar and wind energy from Western Australia to Southeast Asia via Indonesia and Singapore.

The hybrid power plant would be spread over 14,000 square km in flat desert land on the Northwest coast of Australia. It would comprise approximately 1,200 wind turbines supplied by Vestas, and 10 million solar panels with an aggregated capacity of 6,000 megawatts (MW). 4,000 MW would be supplied by wind energy, and 2,000MW from solar. It is estimated that this amount of power will be enough to supply electricity to more than 7 million households. 

 

Tidal Lagoon Cardiff- 3,400 MW tidal – Wales, UK 

Tidal Lagoon Power (TLP) is the power project developer for this innovative renewable energy project to be located in between Cardiff and Newport. Once completed, the project will be able to provide electricity to every single household in Wales, which is more than 3 million people, by only using the powerful tides of the UK’s west coast. 

The development process began in 2013 and the project received approval for grid connection last September. The impressive element of the project is that it attempts to scale up a relatively niche technology. If completed, it will harness the second highest tidal range in the world and will change the global landscape of tidal energy once and for all. 

 

And here in the USA, Republicans arrange to KILL an additional 1,400 of their fellow citizens EACH YEAR with the pollution from their elimination of regulations so we can burn more COAL.

No "wall" but a large 30' high foundation (on the Southern Border) to put those solar panels and windmills on with EPA funding it. Not only will it benefit the U.S. but will not clutter the landscape with windmills every property. This is the real "new green deal"!

I just heard a great suggestion that would eliminate the need for Trump's wall.  Trump should advocate for a huge foundation (30 feet high) 1000 miles+ long for solar panels and windmills to sit on and we would get a benefit of "green" electricity and the money could be taken from the EPA budget to support it (after all, it is a green project) and would sit well with the "new green deal" advocates!
