  1. Yeah, when the page first loaded, and I scrolled down, initially I thought the download stalled out and left the image hung up.

    Also, lost in the bottom there, I noticed that coal investment is STILL over double what is furnished to coal; what is the deal there? Aren’t the solar jobs (to improve the tech, engineer and manufacture the panels, and maintain them…jobs I wouldn’t mind my kids doing) at least as valuable to the USA economy as coal jobs (which tend to be jobs like mining…nothing I want my kids doing, I know that)?
