Thank you so very much for participating in a good, supportive, and positive manner!

This is good news that here is more solar energy, and the jobs that go with solar energy.

Even better news maybe the saltwater batteries for storage of some of this energy.

Dear Jesus, please help so that Mr President will do his job the good way to help all the men, women, and children. Please do not hurt the earth: the air, the water, the land, the animals, the children, the women, the men; the parks. You were not hired to hurt us -- all of us -- the citizens of the USA.

Everything that I say can be used together for good to bless and not curse me.

Thank you for the article. Please through Christ Jesus the son of God, Bless -- bless and not curse -- all the men, women, and children -- who you have chosen before the foundation of the earth, and please God bless the earth to have clean air, clean water, and clean land, and produce good clean produce and foods for the men, women, and children whom he has chosen, and he knows who they are. WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ? -- JUDGE NOT AT ALL, OR YOU COULD BE JUDGED. MAY GOD SPARE ME, amen.

Through Christ Jesus, the Son of God, God the Father, and Holy Spirit -- who have Love -- Dear God please protect the land, the air, the water, and all the creation from all evil as much as possible. The President is to serve the Lord Christ Jesus, and The Almighty will deal with the president through Christ Jesus Name. The people who the president put in place are to serve the Lord Christ Jesus and The Almighty Lord will deal with them.
