Its all about money and power and they aren't just walking away from it.

My power company recently got approval from the state to raise rates to make up for losses resulting from falling demand. (supply and demand is apparently an outdated free market ideal) Meanwhile they're building wind farms that the people don't want while getting tax breaks for going green.

Agreed, I n my estimation it is more about control and power - when you have that the money is yours anyway. It is also about thinking they are morally superior. They see themselves as great leaders forging a new post Christian world where everyone will be blessed to have their leadership even if they have to force it on them. They are smarter, more moral, care about the planet and it,s creatures more. We are so lucky to have them.
