I am still skeptical about the solar energy yield from the solar panel technology already mature to use, seem to me the energy from the solar panel still not that good for technical reasons. China invest so much on this, built and set up more and more solar panel sites, is not a wise move. Recent years built so many high speed electric trains, end up there were flaws. End up needed to redesign and test again its basic safety function. This is a failed project I look at it. I do not have the confidence to take this high speed train without proven just like the solar panel, is better to wait and see till it is matured.

The current political debate is that Obama did not do enough to create jobs. Bailing out the banks and GM didn't save jobs. Investing in new technologies, didn't create jobs. Only fat cat Republican CEOs can create jobs. I know how to create a few jobs -- throw some of these crooked Wall Street bankers and their insider tipping CEO friends in jail. Let's call it a "Jobs for Jailers" program.

Right. Republicans don't believe in PR stunts. "Mission Accomplished"

China has a thousand year plan to dominate the world. Short sighted wall street capitalists will be left in their dust.

Yes, they should have built their plants in China. Why hire Americans with tax-payer dollars?

What Obama tried to create jobs? No way! He's a socialist, he must have been trying to take jobs from the rich and give them to the poor and middle classes.

The trick is being able to transport the energy with out losses. Death Valley might be a great location for a solar farm, but if you cannot get the energy to population centers reliably and easily it is pretty useless.

One of the times the government invested wisely was for the Space Program in the 60's. It has been said that a side effect of the race to space was jump starting the semiconductor and integrated circuit industries about 10 years sooner than without that investment in research. (Not too mention Orange Tang, smoke detectors, fogless goggles and other products that came out of NASA research).
