BRAVO! Germany is saying "nein" to dirty energy by heavily investing in solar energy, and the results are stunning: the country just broke the world record by producing 5.1 terrawatt hours of clean energy in July - that's more than 6 times the entire amount produced by the USA! 

If a cloudy country like Germany (which has no deserts and is the size of New Mexico) can excel in solar energy, why can't the USA? The answer is government priorities. While we continue to subsidize fossil fuels and embrace controversial tactics like fracking, Germany is showing the rest of the world what smart policies can do. That's why our attorneys are helping to spearhead solar energy in places like Hawaii.
