Electric rates in Southern Alabama have doubled over the past year.
In this economy, at the rate of cost increases, people are going to be forced to choose between paying electric bills or buying groceries.

You could do a lot worse.

I think this is due to the fact that people still push through studies that tend to disprove global warming. While I concede that this is SCIENCE and that this involves the search for the truth, I still think that legislators should consider what the people think is right- basically, environmentalism, being the trend nowadays. I think this has something to do with self-interests and what-not of politicians who own energy industries. let's face it, scientific dynamism is good, but still, legislation's job is to listen to the people. and people think that environmentalism is the way. hence, they must side with environmentalism.
