Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

But! But! Elon Musk!!!

Walter Russell Mead observes the latest solar power corruption fiasco and asks:

Is there anybody in the world of tax-funded green energy who isn’t a sleazy thief or an incompetent idealist?

(WaPo article here.)

Regardless of who is behind any “green energy” undertaking, my inclination nowadays is to suspect it is some sort of scam run by people connected to the Obama administration (or merely taking advantage of a golden opportunity for graft), or at best a utopian enterprise run by people with more dreams than good engineering or economic sense.

SolarCity at least responded to WaPo, and sounded sincere enough about their pricing being competitive with Treasury Department guidance. Maybe Elon is the one Mead is looking for? Dunno.
