    Grand dream loses sheen in glare of daylight ($$$ LA community college GREEN energy building)

    Larry Eisenberg had a vision. "Amazing," he called it. "Spectacular."

    The Los Angeles Community College District would become a paragon of clean energy. By generating solar, wind and geothermal power, the district would supply all its electricity needs. Not only would the nine colleges sever ties to the grid, saving millions of dollars a year, they would make money by selling surplus power. Thanks to state and federal subsidies, construction of the green energy projects would cost nothing upfront.

    As head of a $5.7-billion, taxpayer-funded program to rebuild the college campuses, Eisenberg commanded attention. But his plan for energy independence was seriously flawed.

    He overestimated how much power the colleges could generate. He underestimated the cost. And he poured millions of dollars into designs for projects that proved so impractical or unpopular they were never built.

    These and other blunders cost nearly $10 million
    that could have paid for new classrooms, laboratories and other college facilities, a Times investigation found.

    The problems with Eisenberg's energy vision were fundamental. For starters, there simply wasn't room on the campuses for all the generating equipment required to become self-sufficient. Some of the colleges wouldn't come close to that goal even if solar panels, wind turbines and other devices were wedged into every available space.

    Going off the grid did not make economic sense either. Given the cost of alternative energy technology, it would be more expensive for the district to generate all its own electricity than to continue paying utilities for power.

    Weather and geology also refused to cooperate.


    What is it that makes them so flucking STUPID?

    Weed? Tofu? Their boyfriends constant pounding from behind?

    Liberals just chose to ignore relevant information about the world they live in, and then call themselves sophisticated for having chosen to be more stupid than God made them.

    A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Larry Eisenberg should donate his brain to science.

    Most of these advocates for alternative energy before it's time, have no clue of what amount of energy is necessary for the bare minmum existance nor do they ever think along the lines of maintenace, relability, and sustainability.

    Solar and wind are far from being anything more than backups during specific times when their mediums are present. No where near being dependable. And like all things in liberal left utopian visions, cost never enters into their formula. They like their cohorts in politics think money grow on trees and they just have to pick it.....

    Green energy is just like many on the Left's view of Socialism, it never worked anywhere before but it looks so perfect to them on paper, they believe it's just a matter of some genius like themselves to put it to work "properly".......Describes BHO the narcissit in a nutshell.
