McCain on Solar Subsidies

For anyone else tracking politics and its ties to our ensuing environmental crises, I thought this news item was particularly interesting.

On one hand, one of the commentators below the article is certainly right in that McCain chose not to do the politically expedient thing here. On the other hand, and more subtly, another commentator is (partially) correct in assuming that nuclear energy trends toward big business whereas solar trends towards smaller business and individual energy costs. Nonetheless, I'm convinced at this point that by even entering into the dialog and asking this person candidly, "What do you want me to do?", McCain shows that he would be an infinitely better Republican candidate with regard to the environment than just about anyone else out there. Whether that simply means he's the least of all evils, I'm not sure....
