Coal Bloviators and Germany

I have spent some time during the current WV legislative session listening to online broadcasts of legislative committee meetings.  A couple of weeks ago, I heard a WV Senator claim that Germany (this is a paraphrase) “has given up on all that renewable stuff and is going back to 100% coal for its electricity.” The Senator went on to explain that solar and wind power just weren’t working for Germany.

That would be news to the people of Freiberg.

The coal industry guys in WV need to get out more.  They spend all their time talking to each other, and they have convinced themselves of their own bullshit.
