So boring, all the pittsfield negativity. If you can't stand it in pittsfield and don't want to do anything to contribute positively, then leave, but I think you just really get off on something or someone to complain about, such low self-esteem.

Ramdan,

Oil is not used to generate electricity. Coal is. You are blinding yourself to the fact that a bad decision for good reasons is still a bad decision. What are you going to do when all the heavy metals and toxic chemicals used to make solar cells are contaminating local ground water?

Will you be quick to scream that every we need to do something about that?
