Grist reports that “A coal museum in Kentucky is switching to solar power. Long live irony!” The museum will save money on electrical costs by installing solar panels on the roof. All excess energy produced will feed into the town’s power grid. In the past election, 85% of the voters in Harlan County, where the museum is located, voted for The Twitler who promised to bring back coal jobs. Yea, right….
