Most of the world has not had huge government incentives for fossil fuels which has kept America from being a leader in Renewable Energy. Most of the world has chosen solar thermal as their renewable energy of choice.
America is still the greatest country on Earth but we’ve lagged behind in some areas. China’s economy is nipping at our heels and its manufacturing sector has surpassed us. In many countries, it is mandatory to install solar thermal for all new construction. The age of cheap oil is coming to an end. Other countries have seen the light (literally). Now it is time for America to move to clean, renewable solar thermal energy.
