We’re doomed

January 8, 2014
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

To the editor:

Corruption will be our demise. I should have known crony capitalism was too entrenched for profit to be diverted to home owners for the sake of earth and humanity. Home energy independence is about to be thwarted because huge utilities like FP&L, with the aid of a political party, will dictate to Public Utility Commissions across America (California to Florida) to gut "Net Metering" because they can no longer compete. This was our last chance to even try to mitigate CO2 (carbon dioxide) polluting the atmosphere. So much for out with the old and in with the new and better.

Solar energy grid parity is here, and it will not be allowed to stand. This is "Who Killed the Electric Car" writ large. Many just don't want to believe for-profit corporations have the power to kill our future. They do and they will because stockholders and CEOs only look to the quarterly report. They know if they don't take the money and run someone else will. We'll lament our inaction on this.

Greed wins we lose.
