    As for jobs, ones in solar pay about $20,000 less per year than those in fossil fuels so that one is a net loser for workers (about $50,000 versus $70,000). Another downside to solar is the cost of electricity skyrockets with large amounts of solar in use. Germany, Spain, Australia as but three examples prove that conclusively. California is another example with some of the highest per KWH costs in the US.
    And don't forget rolling brown-and blackouts.

    So much for American jobs from the Biden administration. Good paying jobs gone in a state hurting for good paying jobs. Maybe Pennsylvanians will remember this come 2022...

    Then you are an idiot. Zero pollution is impossible in a technologically advanced society. We will generate pollution as a byproduct of our level of technology whether it is radio noise interference (yes, it is a form of pollution), waste products from daily life, or whatever from making stuff.
    The objective should be to target for optimal pollution, not zero.

    I think you mean target an acceptable level of pollution. Optimal pollution will always be zero.

    Optimal pollution balances costs against benefits. Acceptable simply means the amount generated is accepted as necessary. The problem today is the environmental Left in particular wants zero pollution. They are insane idiots.

    The problem with defining optimal that way is it is subjective as to what are the actual costs and benefits. You think the "Left" is insane because they define costs and benefits different than you define them. It might be "optimal" for someone to simply poor used oil in the river because it costs nothing and it goes downstream so doesn't affect the local area. But that would not be the optimal choice for all those living downstream.
