Progressive actor Robert Redford must not have heard about Solyndra or any of the other crony capital green energy busts in President Barack Obama’s first term.
Redford has a new op-ed at The Huffington Post begging Obama to stay the course, embrace all things green and reject dirty, dirty oil.
It’s easy for Redford, flush with the kind of cash that can pay premium prices for inefficient green energy, to preach to the enviro-choir. Meanwhile, ordinary Americans see their tax dollars fly out the window with Solyndra-like deals and watch other nations capitalize on their homegrown oil resources.
From rejecting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline to limiting carbon pollution from our nation’s dirty power plants, President Barack Obama’s legacy will rest squarely on his response, resolve, and leadership in solving the climate crisis.
