This week, President Biden invoked the Defense Production Act to expedite domestic production of solar panels. The move is yet another empty and cynical gesture camouflaging an increasingly evident and disturbing anti-America agenda.

According to press reports, the purpose of Biden's DPA announcement was to increase domestic manufacturing of solar panels in order to increase U.S. energy security and independence and lower energy costs for Americans at a time of skyrocketing gas prices; the national average an unthinkable $5 a gallon this week.


Blah-blah-blah, as Greta Thunberg might say. The actual purpose of Biden's invocation of the DPA was to roll back the Trump-era tariffs on Communist China-made solar panels.


Desde 2005, a China investiu US$ 47 bilhões em sua indústria solar para se tornar o player dominante no mercado global. A dependência da China comunista do trabalho escravo e de padrões ambientais inexistentes (alerta de ironia!) permitiram que ela produzisse os painéis baratos que colocaram pelo menos 100 empresas de energia solar dos EUA fora do mercado ao longo dos anos.


O presidente Trump impôs tarifas à China para ajudar os fabricantes dos EUA – mas a China respondeu transbordo (transshipment) certificando seus painéis como feitos na Malásia, Vietnã, Camboja e Tailândia.


... o governo dos EUA não compra equipamentos solares. Ele compra muita eletricidade da rede, mas nenhuma dessa eletricidade precisa ser produzida por painéis solares dos EUA. Corrigir essa brecha exigiria outro ato do Congresso, que até agora não demonstrou interesse nos fabricantes de energia solar dos EUA.


Although the U.S. solar industry was able to petition the Biden Department of Commerce to launch an investigation of this dodge, as it turns out, that was another empty and cynical gesture; in announcing the use of the DPA, Biden also suspended the Trump tariffs while the Commerce investigation is proceeding (and likely never-ending).


Game. Set. Match. China.
