Damn you, Al Gore!

Why must you come up with nice, succinct phrases that never occurred to me until I read them? Today I refer you to (there’s some pretty hilarious comments):

Here’s the difference, when the demand for wind and solar goes up, costs go down. When demand for oil and gas goes up, prices go up.

Nice way to illustrate a pretty clear difference between renewable and nonrenewable goods. I guess it applies to the behavior of limited and unlimited goods, in general.
