    Frankly, I am glad solar has won….my biggest fear was that garbage incineration was the next big thing…I understand there’s around 80 incinerators in the country…But as someone in the garbage business, I need all the trash I can get.

    Yes, but they do not learn anything in school. Fox Business is where the “learning” happens. SP to 400, Gold to 10000 and 10yr to 9.0%! B/C is Obama the socialist who will destroy the healthcare sector!
