No no. I would be in favor of what you just said, foreign technology, foreign training, and some initial foreign participation are all fine, but . . .
I am very much in favor of solar, especially roof top solar. I don’t know enough about wind to have a strong feeling one way or another. We need a lot more roof top solar. Wind?
I’m not in favor of allowing offshore wind to be developed in the way the deep water Gulf has been developed. With more and more foreign domination of the best jobs , and fewer an fewer jobs for Americans and American companies. No. No way.
But that is exactly the direction I see US offshore wind going.
How many Americans is the offshore wind industry training in Europe? None? Why not?
Have European wind companies have set up factory’s to build windmills in the US. No? Why not?
How many of those Euro-design jack up barges with all the Norwegian bells and whistles are they building in the US? None? Why not?
I know why not. Because they have no intention of ever allowing Americans to build this equipment or have any sognificant number of these jobs.
