    And I support governments subisides, but it doesn’t change the fact that it takes subsidies for alternate fuels to compete.

    Seriously? You are going to use a natural gas lobbying group’s website as proof like it isn’t biased as ****?

    And clearly no lobbying group in history has ever selectively quoted a hundred page report and referenced out of context only the data that supports them.

    If you think Bush bombed the Taliban out of Afghanistan I can see why you are having this problem with N. Korea. :)

    Yes, by all means lets endlessly drone on about Solyndra as though it is a justification for not doing all we can to develop renewable energy sources as quickly as possible.

    Now, for the third time, my question from your OP,
    Talks with the Korea's fail, are you happy or sad? A simple question that deserves a one word answer.

    The chance of nuclear disaster or a better chance for another 7 years of chaos and incompetence. It's a toss up.

    Your answer fits perfectly with the sad state of the democratic party.

    And no left wing partisan outlet even attempted to cover the study.

    Classic leftie non answer. That is why your side got swamped in landslide election losses from 2010-2016.

    If N.Korea was to denuclearize, I would be in favor of it.

    I wouldn't care who got the credit (whether it was Trump, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Bigfoot, or the Man in the Moon).

    But, FIRST, it has to happen (before we start giving "credit").:salute:

    That word doesn't mean what you think it means. The cleanest, most sustainable source of energy is nuclear, guess how much restrictions are on building a new plant like that there is. Both wind and solar are a net loss in energy production compared to what goes into creating the devices to harness those energies. There is also more pollution to create solar panels than they save. There is also less materials for those devices than fossil fuels. But don't let facts get in the way of arguing with your feelings.

    I am questioning your thinking that Bush bombed the Taliban out of Afghanistan.

    It was a point that engaging with a tyrannical regime some how is the only way they get legitimized.

    It was a joke. Obviously the chance of a nuclear disaster is preferable.

    Actually, the Repubs made gains from a combination of gerrymandering, the backlash to the ACA, largely inspired by fear mongering over non-existent "death panels," and the ridiculous ruse "the government is taking over health care," and the 24/7 misinformation machine that is conservative media.
