Hillary announces vision for America: Make EVERY home a Solyndra home

Maybe it should be considered a positive sign that so early in Hillary’s campaign she’s already devoid of original ideas:

Promising more than a half-billion solar panels by the end of a first term and an ambitious target of clean energy for every home in America in a decade, Hillary Rodham Clinton unveiled goals on Sunday evening to reduce the threat of climate change.

She said she would continue President Obama’s sweeping plan to limit carbon emissions from power plants, and announced targets that even push beyond current goal’s for greenhouse gases.

Mr. Obama’s proposed regulations are expected to be finalized by the Environmental Protection Agency in August, and the real work of making the changes — shutting down coal plans and increasing the number of renewable electricity sources — would fall to the next administration.

The Clinton campaign said the goals, set out on its website in a video, were the first of a six-plank plan to address climate change that Mrs. Clinton would continue to unveil in coming weeks and months.

The “fighting climate change” video Hillary’s campaign put out contained images of the Wright Brothers, the flag being raised on Iwo Jima during WWII and the Apollo 11 moon landing. Maybe since all those things burned plenty of fuel in the process, she’s blaming those achievements for contributing to the problem.

What’s the scope of Hillary’s planned course of action?

Mrs. Clinton’s pledge to produce “enough renewable energy to power every American home within 10 years of taking office” — that is, by 2027 — is even more ambitious than Mr. Obama’s plan.

Unless she’s found a way to retroactively harness the kinetic energy from her husband’s zipper and supply it to every American home, this is a totally undeliverable promise. But anything beats talking about her emails.
