The Yiddish word "chutzpah" means gall and utterly arrogant nerve. It should be re-spelled to "koch-spah" after this news… that the ever-meddlesome Koch brothers are now funding a major campaign against state efforts to ramp up solar energy.  It would be one thing if they limited their attacks to ending tax rebates and minor subsidies for solar and wind… hypocritical, given how much they have benefited from vastly larger oil-gas-coal subsidies, tax breaks and almost free access to resources on public lands. 

No, they are also targeting "net metering" which is the law allowing a homeowner who owns a rooftop solar unit to sell excess power back to the utility.

Please read that again.  The Koch brothers do not want you selling your excess power to the market.  Their beef is with filling energy markets with millions of little-guy producers.  Their "institute" proclaims that its aim is to "preserve the public utility power company concept" -- a state mandated monopoly system in which single companies control all access to energy.  Some enterprise capitalists! Some libertarians!

But let's dig deeper to the heart of it.  WHY are the Kochs (and their Saudi partners) doing this right now?  Because solar energy is taking off.  Because efficiency and durability rates have been skyrocketing, in part because we had the wisdom to use some mild incentives to boost an important new industry, the way US Postal contracts stimulated air travel, in the 1920s, or public roads spurred the rise of the automobile.

Only with this difference: renewable energy systems are improving far FASTER than airplanes or automobiles did, in their nascent days. And more spectacular tech advances loom on the horizon, that they can see coming fast.

Dig it well.  The Kochs would not be doing this if renewables weren't taking off and a looming threat to the brothers' bottom line.  Millions of autonomous citizens, generating and selling their own power is no longer a sci fi pipe dream.  It is coming true fast… and the parasite dinosaurs are bellowing.
The Koch brothers and large utilities have allied to reverse state policies that favor renewable energy.

Cena is on this list, but where's Dino Bravo? Ivan Putski? Paul Orndorff? Scott Steiner? Tony Atlas?

I value my personal pictures so I store them on a home NAS which is running Solaris/ZFS. The server has two data disks mirrored. It's been running perfectly fine for the last two years but recently one of the disk drives retu...

There are so many more wrestlers who have a real respect for the sport than Lesnar does. He has real athletic ability, but to to him, it's just a payday. The fact he married Sable speaks volumes as to his true character.
