The cool thing about the Seattle program is that it doesn't cost $7000 to install, it costs $150 on your electric bill (once) and it moves with you inside the city, even if you rent.
I've been buying solar panel units here in Seattle that are placed on public buildings through our Seattle City Light program, since my townhouse faces north, and it works even if I sell the house and buy another one somewhere in Seattle (costs about $150 per unit, due to large scale installations that drop the costs).
As to poor people using solar panels, some cities way up here give homeless veterans Tiny Houses (250 sq ft) with solar panels on their roofs so they don't have to camp outside.
Adapt. Cause emissions don't care about your excuses, and change is now.
Look, we actually have documents (go look at wikileaks, no I won't do your work for you) that prove that Germany has been instrumental in making sure that Greek milliionaires avoiding taxes aren't followed to their Swiss deposits and other tax frauds.
The only problem is that the German Banks might have to suffer a loss for Liar's Loans they made under the Goldman Sachs "promises" that Greece could be in the EEC (EU monetary combine), which even internal German audits show was known to be a lie.
The banks losing their money is what is supposed to happen when they make bad loans.
That and the lack of repayment by Germany for the war looting of Greece during WW II, which has never been repaid.
Does Greece have a strong economy? No, but it never has.
Is there massive tax fraud in Greece? Yes, but there always has been.
Is this a major risk for the EU? No, because
All the rest is sturm und drang by Reichsmarshalls in Den Stadt.

Thomas says that the idea behind using a falsificationist method is to treat your initial conclusions about a complex troubleshooting problem as untrustworthy and rather than look for something to confirm what you think might have happened, try to figure out what evidence would disprove that conclusion. "Trying to disprove your conclusions may not give you the correct answer right away, but at least you won’t spend a couple of hours chasing what turns out to be an incorrect answer."

I'm sure that's what the Saurian dinosaur astronomers told their people.
Look, just operate under the general assumption that we live in a Police State that makes Eastern German Stasi look like kindergarten cops.
Then you'll be a good serf.
Is it unconstitutional and illegal?
Will they do anything about it that actually changes anything?

Obelix is fun at parties, unless he gets stoned, but Oberon can bring a party down.
Not true. Climate change alters basic acidity of oceans, revives ancient diseases trapped in polar ice, and the interconnected nature of society and trade may result in conflicts where one person decides to start a nuclear war as billions are forced to migrate or die.
Look, I love that you civilians think it's not a problem, but you've never had to deal with what people pushed to the edge actually DO when they either leave their nation state or die. They will do whatever they have to, and that is very very dangerous. When people think they're trapped, they do amazing things.
I for one have *never* been afraid of asterisks.
I'm far more worried about Oberon than about Asterisk.
Man-made climate change, which is 120 percent of all GHG emissions worldwide (yes, I said more than 100 percent), is an actual risk.
If humans die from a giant asteroid, nobody will notice we're gone.
The impact of actions like this is many many many times greater than any impact from the stupid waste on spying on Americans for the War on Terror.
The only spying that has worked has been that actually done in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and other real threats.
So, about time.
