It is good for the environment because it doesn't release extra greenhouse gas into the atmosphere and damage it. Also, it repays what you payed for it overtime because you don't have to keep going and buying oil and coal....

The question is - is that even desirable? Or should the governments of America and other countries aim primarily for a more equal distribution of wealth, given how some Amer...
