Healing the planet is complicated: Lawyers raked in millions of our dollars through insane attempt by politicians to prevent tornadoes by backing a money-losing solar company

Lawyers netted millions in solar loan deal - Washington Times
Morrison Foerster, which represented the Department of Energy as the loan guarantor, received more than $1.9 million for legal services. Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, which represented Solyndra, received more than $2.4 million.
In a paper titled “Say Hasta La Vista to Global Warming” on the firm’s website, one Morrison Foerster associate was quoted as saying that working on the deal was “a truly unique opportunity and a wonderful learning experience.”
The title of the paper, “Hasta La Vista to Global Warming,” was a reference to a comment made by California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger at a ceremony announcing the Solyndra loan in 2009, an event that also included Energy Secretary Steven Chu and, by satellite, Vice President Joseph R. Biden.
