While Trump promotes coal, other countries are turning to cheap sun power

'A Solar Saudi Arabia': While Trump promotes coal, Chile and others are turning to cheap sun power.

As reported by the Washington Post.

A companion article, "Trump aims deep cuts at energy agency that helped that helped make solar power affordable," also appeared in the Washington Post.

(U.S. Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) pointed out, many years ago, that Saudi Arabia itself, is a potential Saudi Arabia of solar power, given the potential. As the climate crisis worsens, Saudi Arabia's transition from oil production to solar power generation would be a wise move, for itself and the planet. But of course U.S. leadership on such issues would make a big difference.)
