Please Tell Me That The Populace Over There In The Us Is Not Gullible Enough To Believe This?

Something to be noted about the lady making the claim.
"Shibani Joshi holds an MBA from Harvard Business School. She is married to Rahul Advani, a principal for energy investments at Energy Capital Partners in Short Hills, New Jersey
Energy Capital Partners is a private equity firm dedicated to investing in North America's energy infrastructure. ... owns three natural gas fields"
My poor mind is still trying to come to grips with her statement...

In the SW United States, some solar power has reached "grid parity". That means its less expensive than other forms of power generation. Why is that? There is very little cloud cover and rain. This is the exception rather than the rule. The least expensive form of energy in the US is coal. At $.008 per KwH, is the cheapest form of energy. And we are the Saudi Arabia of coal.
Coal is getting more expensive to use. The reason for that is regulation, not supply and demand. At some point there will be parity between coal and solar. Some estimates say 2017. I reserve judgement on that estimate for my own part.
I did a little self study for my climate and part of the world. For a solar system for my home the costs would be $35,000. The expected pay off would be 25 years. The life of the system would be 15 years. In other words I would have to replace the system after 15 years and I would never recoup my own costs.
For countries like Australia, solar makes much more sense. I have friends who rely completely on solar/battery systems for their power they are so far off the grid. But they still cost an arm an a leg to get them.

To make up, I hereby submit this gem ...
CNN anchor Deb Feyerick asks Bill Nye The Science Guy if an approaching asteroid “is an example of, perhaps, global warming?”
Sometimes its hard to tell which is worse on the news, the train wreck or the reporting on the train wreck.
