So lender alone as a cautionary tale of how taxpayer dollars can get flushed down -- drain when the government has blindly pushing an agenda.
In this case it was a Green agenda.
But there are still those who think of Green energy is not just an alternative but as the only way to go Daryl Hannah is one of a good -- best known for her.
Movies like splash and kill bill as an equal passion for the environment -- -- For which is even willing to go to jail she's been arrested a few times during protests she joins us now.
You know Fox Business exclusive great to see a barrel thanks for come again thank you so why isn't always right so -- you would Ed Begley that ceded to be put yourself -- what -- for it is they can't get the other other actors and actresses involved.
My you know there are plenty of other actresses and actors involved but I know that at an I have been using a renewable energy for a long time in.
Both to power our homes and our vehicles so I think just become we speak from a place of experience and as at likes to say he's cheap that's why he's in the -- -- and that seems to save his bank account.
Actually had had before and and once again you know if you can make money using alternate energy that they that doesn't pull that's a that's a great -- by the way have a car I believe it's a car that used in kill bill that you.
Converted to to to natural gas -- ethanol right.
No it -- runs on a 100% alcohol fuel that's made from wastes.
And it was just small modification.
Any car that's fuel injected car.
-- -- can run on a 100% alcohol.
It's obviously best if it's made from.
Waste -- renewable resources rather than you know.
Things that are destructive impact -- you know I don't like people and then yes any car can be trance transformed -- varies with a very small and fast modification.
-- -- I made I do it if I had a carbon I have no carbon footprint that's that's a that's why that's even better what.
You think though what you see people who who talk the talk on on carbon footprints and don't walk the walk you see -- get not private jets and spewing out more more pollution and in two hours than I do in a lifetime.
Yeah I mean it's you know I think it's.
An evolutionary process of understanding and learning and and really.
You know learning how to get your bureau lifestyle and in harmony with your believe -- -- should.
Know by now shouldn't they have merely evidence it according -- -- was clear I've been at when you see people even Al Gore we've seen him getting on private jets and then get -- powering up his house with far more energy than what a lot of people say it's necessary.
I mean it's definitely I think as.
Is it the best place to start is to start at home and start with your your own lifestyle and then work out from there you know are.
Well I -- it sounds like you don't wanna criticize people but again it did bothers me I need to know and when I see people talking frankly some people my own family.
Talking all about the Green agenda that I see of driving around in a big SUV.
Yeah I mean for me I like to focus on the solutions and not so much all right well let's so let's -- yeah.
Because for decades we have been we've been doing everything we can subsidizing solar energy some would say too much so -- subsidizing ethanol etc.
And yet 1% only 1% of the world's energy comes from solar and wind power combined so what's it -- -- also the and also the that that companies that get them the most the biggest subsidies in the world go to the fossil fuel industry.
And the fossil fuel industry is also the wealthiest industry in this country since the history of money.
So what I've -- take -- -- -- I started -- I think it -- about a 114.
In terms of the out of profit that it takes for every dollar order to surged.
Something like six dollars for every dollar that it's.
-- freshly however is -- wealthiest wealthiest history of antibody.
Getting -- murder shouldn't get away with murder.
But that there's -- -- your -- people that includes some people that are getting subsidies from the government.
For solar projects and of course a lender among them so lender is somehow right -- which was a terribly run company and frankly the administration should have known that a lot of people were telling them that from Silicon Valley shouldn't give money discovery -- -- we gave 500 million.
Boom it went it went bust and we lost our money.
And it's the millionaires that are getting paid off not the taxpayers.
Well I mean I have some friends in the private sector who lost money in that investment as well they you have to understand.
That what that really points out is that there's an increasing demand from both the industrial and the consumer sector for solar power and the Chinese Government was very smart because what they did.
Is they undercut us they're trying to dominate the market in -- heavily subsidizing their solar panel production.
We become a country of of consumers not -- producers and they've become a country of that the producers so they're able to make a product at a much more affordable price and a and what our federal government needs to understand is that.
This is our clean energy future this is energy that's made domestically that's clean -- safe.
And our government has responded still very -- -- -- to protect the health and safety of its citizens it's still issued Green Italy only -- offensive.
So those sort of but it's expensive -- first look at put my solar panels and twenty years ago.
It was it was very expensive for the first.
Year but in five years -- paid itself off and I've been getting basically free agent for the last fifty alleged.
That's right now talking about the big energy that we need to power country when we're talking about megawatt orders at this as well as saying the secondarily cost 66 dollars.
Per megawatt hour for natural gas for natural gas I had a natural gases and I was a fuel.
Yeah I -- -- -- I understand but I'm just gonna put it in in context here 66 dollars per megawatt hour for natural gas 210 dollars for per megawatt hour.
For solar panels and then the concentrated solar power.
Which we have been subsidizing to a large degree from a lot of companies is 311 dollars per megawatt -- so it is much more expensive to get energy from solar solar power right now.
That is coming down drastically.
Every single second first of -- Second of all it makes a lot more sense economically to make your energy to create your energy if you're talking about renewable energy.
On a regional basis rather than on centralized system because -- it's very complicated and expensive to try to chance transmit that power to different.
Very large areas you know -- and put it integrated and and you lose a lot of energy that way.
So so at what we're looking at is really more of a paradigm shift you know and and in terms of that in terms of the money.
This is the fastest drop just chop job growth sector.
In in our economy right.
Not right now is a liberal lost 11100 jobs and there are a lot of other similar companies I was out -- -- -- -- -- it.
But but while solar power back and entity about a half a dozen solar companies that have went to have gone bust in the past couple months and that shakedown -- What we yet yet but what you're talking about is the production of the solar panel right because that because that China has been able to make them more affordably than us and they're making and quicker.
But what I'm talking about -- Green Green jobs in terms of right now its construction and and it's and it's an implementation putting them on -- buildings and things.
That's where that big a lot of the job growth is.
And of course if we get our act together and we start focusing on and get becoming -- again I'm sure we could make a superior product.
-- I'm being applied by -- producer that we have gone way beyond her allotted time but we thank you for coming -- there were a lot of other question of what could you come back.
-- -- -- thank you very much Daryl Hannah good to see appreciate you coming in today it's well enough.
