Given the desperate rush to tear out all the dams in America, hydroelectric is apparently a great threat to wind and solar as well.
Not by the hair of Washington's chinny chin chin.
We are not "addicted". There's no need to inject emotional terms into the discussion. We simply want the most reliable source at the lowest available price. Right now, the "green" sources cannot compete with the carbon-based sources on price, availability, or reliability. When they can, our "addiction" will magically disappear overnight. (True addicts will inform you that true addictions do not disappear overnight, and getting rid of one is far more painful than simply finding a superior alternative.)
Seems to me that liberals can choose to buy shares in the NYT or wind/solar energy.
Unfortunately, they’ll use taxpayer money to do either.
But, what will we do with those thousands of bird killing, no energy producing wind mills that are popping up all over the place?
How do you kill a corpse?
Clean energy is a myth. There is no such thing.
Liberals are lamenting that they cannot stop the natural gas industry despite their lies, emotions and hysteria.
Liberals know that this will kill many environmental groups that donate solely to liberal politicians.
Liberals know that they will never control energy via gov’t that is the plan for solar, wind, etc.
A new era of low-cost energy will lead to another 30 year economic boom that will transform this nation in the same way the personal computer transformed this nation.
I think Thomas L. Friedman should set an example for all of us by publicly vowing to stop exhaling carbon dioxide.
