I can answer that in 2 words:
Funding bias.
(And it's very well proven all across all branches of science)

How do we know overfishing and mans unnatural selection didn't drive them north?
Blaming the climate is the easy answer to everything.
Blaming Obama is the easy answer for you, that's clear.
Let's have a look at Solyndra then.
Quote:
Between 2009 and mid-2011 the price of polysilicon, the key ingredient for most competing technologies, dropped by about 89%.
This was the key to their downfall. On top of that, extremely cheap Chinese PV panels getting dumped on the market.
Quote:
Bloomberg reported in 2011 that Solyndra's $733 million plant had whistling robots and spa showers, along with many other signs of extravagant spending.[31]
This isn't illegal, but definitely not helpful either. At the time they should have known they could not afford it.
Quote:
Also in 2011, a US Department of the Treasury official confirmed that the criminal probe of Solyndra is focused on whether the company and its officers misrepresented the firm’s finances to the government in seeking the loan or engaged in accounting fraud.[32] Newly revealed emails showed that the Obama administration had concerns about the legality of the Department of Energy's loan restructuring plan and warned OMB director Jeffrey D. Zients that the plan should be cleared with the Department of Justice first, which the Department of Energy had not done. The emails also revealed that, as early as August 2009, an aide to then-White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel had asked a Department of Energy official if he could discuss any concerns among the investment community about Solyndra but that the official dismissed the idea that Solyndra had financial problems.[33]
So the administration had concerns, but the department was stifling it?
Seems like the only fault Obama made was not making more effort of clearing the department of his antagonists...

Which makes me wonder, why did you bring this up in the first place?
Quote:
n 2011 and 2012, during Obama's re-election campaign, the political advocacy group Americans for Prosperity spent $8.4 million in swing states on television advertisements denouncing the loan guarantee.[2] The Wall Street Journal described the advertising campaign as "perhaps the biggest attack on Mr. Obama so far."[41][42]
A ha!
Quote:
Americans for Prosperity (AFP), founded in 2004, is a libertarian/conservative political advocacy group in the United States funded by David H. Koch and Charles Koch.[5] As the Koch brothers' primary political advocacy group, it is one of the most influential American conservative organizations.[6][7][8]
Every time your references lead to the Koch brothers. I did not even know about them before this thread!

It is all one shift-the-blame game. Blame others of what you're doing yourself.

You don't like Obama, you don't care for the people who do.
You don't like sea food, you don't care for the people who do.
You don't care about the climate, you don't like people who do.
Every post is rife with conservative propaganda.

If that is what libertarianism is all about, I'll pass.

Everyone knew china was crashing the price per watt of solar panels. Except for the US government.
So it's not Obamas fault, it was just the people he appointed to run these agencies and advise him. It was their fault.
I believe there is an old saying that pretty much sums this up: "you are only as good as the company you keep".

Obama was ok, no bill Clinton by any stretch.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Those Koch guys are alright. With out them the carbon cap and tax scam would have likely passed and we would all be broke and nothing would have changed.

Lots of money to follow, that's for sure. Unbiased opinions, never.

Hopefully the most votes can eventually win and take back the money with it.

I always believed we should strive for happiness and fulfillment in ourselves and others.
Money is but one way to get that, and by no means the most important one.

But of course if you do not make a living wage, you will not be happy by any measure.

The sweet spot is somewhat above zero. And it's a bell curve.

Mo' money, mo' probs...

If you want to be happy for the rest of your life never make a pretty woman your wife...

It's way above zero. In the USA right now happiness starts to level off at about $65,000 for a family of 4 in non-metro areas of neither coast. Much higher in demand areas.
