The inconsistencies of the weather have once again offered a hard lesson.

I know climate change is repugnant to the conservative element, but when a Nobel Prize is awarded for economics connected to climate change, I suggest denial is a losing argument.

However, economically harvesting the sun 300 days or more a year without the risks of a weather event destroying a year’s effort nor pollution from agricultural commercial fertilizer and weed control and the expense incurred? Plus the savings and concerns of finding harvesting assistance?

Not to mention that the change of climate effect improvement by not needing additional fossil fuel requirements to produce that same electricity. Maybe your grandchildren can live longer in the process.

Forgive me for thinking of replacing a product that makes people sick with an environmental benefit that can extend life on planet Earth. I know you hate it when people think logically.
