The tech sector of the economy needs energy like an organism needs air, the cheaper and more reliable the better. So tech's indifference (or endorsement) of various schemes to make energy more expensive and less reliable have never made sense, especially given the growing scientific doubts about the validity of the climate change hypothesis.
To complete the upside-down quality of the debate, for truth one can now go to -- Pravda, and "The American Self-Immolation,Truly a Sight To See":
That brings us to Cap and Trade. Never in the history of humanity has a more idiotic plan been put forward and sold with bigger lies. Energy is the key stone to any and every economy, be it man power, animal power, wood or coal or nuclear. How else does one power industry that makes human life better (unless of course its making the bombs that end that human life, but that's a different topic). Never in history, with the exception of the Japanese self imposed isolation in the 1600s, did a government actively force its people away from economic activity and industry.
Even the Soviets never created such idiocy.
