who doesn't like solar and wind
Just in the great lakes states there are over 70 shops doing major work on windmills, and another 150 doing small jobs and supplying products. To give you an idea of the size of this business, Siemens, at it's Hutchinson Kansas shop (at full load) buys $1 billion of products a year, much of it from US sources.
Wind, solar, and other alternative energy sources grew more manufacturing and field jobs than oil/gas/coal in the last few years even while they are drilling at the highest pace in history, even while the GOP act like Obama prevents the industry from drilling.
Who doesn't like solar and wind energy, a new pole says 65 and older republican men are the only group who is strongly against it no matter the cost or benefit, they hate it, the end. Among republican men the support for it is just over 50%, for women a little higher, among dems it is strong, swing voters it is also strong, and the younger they are the stronger it is.
