    • Add a comment:  Let’s not turn our backs on a global industry, supplying renewable power and the associated electrical distribution grid to the 195 nations that have signed the Paris Agreement.  These are clean jobs that will also help preserve our environment.  Honoring the provisions of the Paris Agreement is a smart business decision, and one that will put the US in a global leadership position in this industry.  Otherwise, we cede the ground to China.  That is not good.
