Declares New Mexico "Solar Valley" of United States
|FOREMAN (voice-over): It's no accident -- up in the capital, Santa Fe, another fellow believes he can see the future, too.
GOV. BILL RICHARDSON, (D) NEW MEXICO: Am I always right or what?
FOREMAN: Governor Bill Richardson is pushing his state hard to recruit more and more solar companies.
RICHARDSON: I've just concentrated like a laser on saying any solar entity, please come to New Mexico. We will do everything we can to recruit you. And it's working.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Governor Richardson and his cabinet rolled out the welcome mat in a lot of ways. They provided all manner of incentives for us, tax incentives on the property, training incentives.
FOREMAN (on camera): What is your best hope for all of this? What do you hope people say 20 years from now about this idea?
RICHARDSON: That New Mexico, despite its small size, became the solar capital of America. That's my goal. And I think we're on our way.
FOREMAN (voice-over): Solar is still a tiny sliver of the U.S. energy market, but this state is intent on grabbing a big share of that, convinced it will mean a lot of jobs, money, and bright days ahead.
Just ahead for us, buildings, brad --
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And there is no reason to build any other way now.
FOREMAN: -- and blues.

Yes, large-scale solar power, wind power, hybrid cars, fuel cells, and electric cars are all large-scale tax-payer frauds sustained for the most part by the science-challenged general population and those who would exploit them. We will turn over every rock on the planet looking for coal, oil, natural gas and uranium in our quest for an ever-improving average standard of living.
We are no different than an overpopulation of rats on an island.
