    So I'm to believe that all these disparate sources are alt right liars? Yes I realize his competitors are also heavily susidized as well. That IMO is also wrong.

    Disparate sources? More like desperate sources.

    Yet for some reason you seem to think he deserves special attention, when in fact he's actually contributing by lowering US government space launch costs and paying back the money he was given to start up the solar business. 10 years early.

    Not to mention helping out Australian consumers by stopping spikes in electricity charges (which for some bizarre reason you ignored when making some snide comment about Aussie taxpayers).

    Sounds to me like you're a bit jealous mate.

    Methinks there are better targets for your ire:

    A report late last year by the International Energy Agency said that the fossil fuels industry collects $550 billion a year in global government subsidies. That compares with about $120 billion for renewable energy including wind, solar and biofuels, according to the Paris-based institution.

    Exactly, they need to look at just one country, Thailand to see that combustion engines can explode on impact as well.
