Distributed, clean energy generation is critical to meeting growing energy needs around the world while fighting the effects of climate change, Carter said. Wow what a difference to the one who is now sitting in the White House.

Much. much more than a mere Politian, he consistently demonstrates the characteristics of good Christian behavior, thoughtful consideration and empathy. He exemplifies the finest qualities of what it means to be a patriotic American.

What a role model. He is the ideal as an elected representative politician with his deep dedication for land and country. I have deep admiration for him, and to me he is an American hero.

Let's here it for Ol' Jimmy! His Presidency may have left something to be desired, but his legacy is outstanding. Yes, he probably fished for that Nobel Peace Prize; but I'm sure that he's more sincere than the average former President.

I remember all the derogatory remarks made when Mr. Carter was running for a seconds term. He lost to
Mr. Reagan, an actor. I knew that history was going to be veery kind to Mr, Carter. I think he was to only non politician ever elected to the White House during the 20th century.

Some presidents use their influence and money to help others----Bill Clinton---Jimmy Carter..... The current one goes overseas and behaves like he's campaigning for president of the tearing down the USA with insulting millions of people who live in our country.......Donald Trump is a threat and I have no idea why people thought a bully would be a good leader considering his background long before he ran for this office...of ... of insulting women,, the disabled and cheating workers and contractors. ANY imbecile could inherit $200 million dollars and hire people to increase the wealth. The DON really isn't that smart....just listen to him talk without someone elses written words for him to say.

Way to go Jimmie. I'd love to go solar but our power companies are charging us $50 a month to have solar in addition to any other fee's. In most months, it's cheaper to just stay with electricity.

Dianne, they were trying to pass the same thing in Florida. Making it sound like this would be wonderful to be more solar available, the hook, but once solar was in then Dirty Duke would add on a fee like you say. So it would not be cost savings and one would still be supporting a nasty utility company that has done more than it's share of pollution.

When some1 is voted in by a majority. This is their job position and what/who they re~present as well.Not a minority ~ who many say this is approximately 1% ...... Plus the person is also selecyed to teach by example. So~ solar panels are what the majority would demand to see :)

I pray they all get PUTIN prison sooner than later.They just do not understand real life only plastic destruction but plastic people do plastic things .
