> Germany Is Headed for 80% Renewable Energy
Yea, maybe, but (I for one would bet that) a good percentage of the 80% are mostly hot air.

On the other hand: Germany is one of the veryfew countries, which have lived up to their Kyoto-commitment. Commitment: -21% (at least proclaimed:)real-world-chnage: -21% !!

We're being left in the dust because the 1% in this country are too deeply invested in keeping fossil fuels number one. Can't sacrafice any profit for saving the world! Too many people who have jobs related to gas , oil, and coal. The people hate change and damn our planet to hell anyway!

I think it might be better to be in the second or third wave of countries to implement, but only if you learn from the mistakes of others.

Germany and other European countries have now sworn off nuclear powerplants. Saudi Arabia is investing heavily in Green, especially solar, energy. Looks like America is late to the party, with Obama's bid to make the US the world's biggest dirty energy producer. Green stars to Cal, and Dan and Tina---sorry I've used them up for this week.
