asciilifeform: lolomatic, apparently selling slightly less fuel to the wehrmacht massed at yer border is nao called 'weaponizing energy'
asciilifeform: 'Increased investment in renewables, battery storage, mini nuclear reactors, hydrogen fuels and energy infrastructure, as made possible by the recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law before, will enhance the position of the U.S. in the new world economy. ' << straight dnc agitprop, lolx2

mats: there's other less objectionable stuff in there, like credits for electric heat pumps

asciilifeform: mats: if yer in a climate with actual winter -- is typically -ev
asciilifeform: mats: notion of roof solar was to skip the transmission loss (and obv to make decay of infrastucture less catastrophically obvious)
asciilifeform: particularly given as w/ usa cardboard 'houses', good % of grid-popping load is in summer and concretely on conditioner
