Trump hurts Renewable Energy

Credit to Firefly
quote:
President Donald Trumpís tariffs on imported solar panels mark the biggest blow heís dealt to the renewable energy industry yet.

The U.S. will impose duties of as much as 30 percent on solar equipment made abroad, a move that threatens to handicap a $28 billion industry that relies on parts made abroad for 80 percent of its supply. Just the mere threat of tariffs has shaken solar developers in recent months, with some hoarding panels and others stalling projects in anticipation of higher costs. The Solar Energy Industries Association has projected tens of thousands of job losses in a sector that employed 260,000. -snip

Trump's seemingly trying his best to put the US at the very rear of solar power, while China is prepping itself to be at the front of it. This is going to hurt the US in the decades to come, at least in potential earnings lost.

The US could be at the front of "Made in the USA" when it comes to solar and solar exports, if it wanted.

The fact that Trump is implementing tariffs is a scary omen for the coming year.

It's ok, coal and oil is the future in Trump's America. If you aren't getting blacklung from working in a coal mine, you aren't a true American.

Honestly given Trump's character and manner of thinking I don't think he really notices or cares about issues like energy independence.

Hey man, it's clean coal and clean oil. Your lungs will be so clean you'll get tired of them being so clean and cancer-free.

The reason China is at the forefront is because the pollution is already having a bad effect on their cities. The air in Beijing is almost unbreathable.

Unfortunately we will make the same exact mistake and not do anything about it until OUR air becomes unbreathable too.

SO all our Lefty Fascists don't like to buy AMERICAN Made Solar Panels but LOVE to buy them ONLY from other Fascists.

Got it.

So progressives have a problem with adding a tax on renewable energy made outside the US, but complain we buy oil from outside the US.

Another progressive conundrum.

Your comparison is really weird and nonsensical.

But if you bothered to read, this is pretty important:"a move that threatens to handicap a $28 billion industry that relies on parts made abroad for 80 percent of its supply"

The industry is reliant on some imported parts to produce the whole, just like most US manufacturers/products, they don't make the product 100%. eg a 90% completed solar-panel is about as useless as a 0% completed unit.

Of coarse its non sensical to you, because it actually makes sense. Nothing wrong with adding a tax, after all, why shouldnt they pay more, we do for American made.

It actually doesn't, it's you mixing irrelevant issues and trying for a "gotcha!" moment. Anyhow, reality:

I'd say possibly crippling a US industry that's been steadily growing for years and the possible loss of "tens of thousands" of US job as something that in wrong and outright harmful to the US economy.

Because it makes it harder for us to get the parts needed to manufacture the stuff lmao

The increased cost is also then transferred onto the consumer in the final product. Even more-so if supply is affected.

ie He'll be paying more for those US made solar panels when he decides to redo his house, if he can find any to begin with. Which I'm sure he's totally cool with or something
