Fox Claims Germany is Much Sunnier than US
Thanks to Fox News and its expert commentators, millions of Americans now understand the real, hidden reason why Germany’s solar-energy industry is so much further along than ours. Turns out it has nothing to do with the fact that Germany’s government has long supported the industry far more generously, with policies like feed-in tariffs that stimulate investment in green technologies. No, the real reason is much simpler, explained a trio of journalists on Fox & Friends: It’s always sunny in Germany!
Having been to Germany a few times, I have been quite amazed at the way solar collectors have been sprouting everywhere. I have never been astonished at how much amazing sun they have. Having lived in Miami, I can say from personal experience that Germany’s sunshine is inadequate for most things you think of when you hear the word “sunshine.”
But maybe Roger Ailes has invested in German tourism. Or maybe he hired a box of rocks to talk over the heads of his viewership.
