Comments on: Germany’s ‘Sun King’ Asbeck explains solar power for Vatican http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2008/12/11/germanys-sun-king-asbeck-explains-solar-power-for-vatican/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Darragh http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2008/12/11/germanys-sun-king-asbeck-explains-solar-power-for-vatican/comment-page-1/#comment-340555 Thu, 23 Jul 2009 00:05:57 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=11523#comment-340555 I worked for Frank for almost three years and although I’m sure the media attention from this helps Solarworld I am also certain his gesture is sincere. He is, as Erik Kirchbaum decribed him, a very energetic and entertaining man.

And it’s a good thing he felt inspired — he’s created a lot of jobs, cut a lot of CO2 and earned a lot of money for himself. But he’s also fortunate to have created his empire in a country, Germany, that set up a robust framework for photovoltaic. Imagine how much CO2 could be reduced each year if the United States had legislation like Germany’s Renewable Energies Act?

I enjoyed your article.

Thanks for this nice introduction to such a man. Long may he live and long may he prosper and long may his ideas reach out and touch the world. We need to convert ASAP from fossil fuels to solar power ips posto facto amen! YES. Good post, sir. I believe his motives are genuine.

He is sincere about believing in solar power, and is also sincere about wanting to promote his products and company. There is nothing wrong or contradictory in all that.
