Tom Lane: A fight against darkness

David Koch, executive vice president of Koch Industries, applauds during an Economic Club of New York event in New York

People will get the government that they deserve. Unfortunately, unless you (yes, you) and the rest of Florida voters wake up, then you will find yourself in the serfdom of the Lords of Darkness.

The Koch Brothers and Florida’s big utilities, Florida Power and Light and Duke Energy, are campaigning to unplug solar power in Florida. The Koch Brothers and the big utilities want to reverse Florida’s solar policies and prevent proposals that currently benefit residential and commercial solar energy system owners. They want to stop and turn back the rapid growth of solar, which is threatening to break Americans from the death grip of fossil fuels.

The Koch Brothers are even demanding that we tax the sun! Since the installed solar capacity in Florida has shot up over 400 percent in the past four years as the cost of raw silicon materials dropped from $44 to $2 per pound, solar electric systems that used to be installed for $50,000 are now being installed for $18,000. The Lords of Darkness now realize that their utility oligarchy and huge fossil fuel profits may be coming to an end, and are buying legislators and media time to spread their lies.
