I agree that it is in America's best interests to find alternatives to our dependence on coal and oil. It is smart for many reasons. I read an article where every house in our country could have been fitted with self sustaining solar power for what the war in Iraq and Afghanistan cost. A lot of people talk about freedom in your camp but not having an electric bill or better yet, having the power company pay us sounds more like freedom than what oil billionaires are selling.<quoted text>AW, Come on Canton.'corporate fetch boy' has been used to death. lol How about something new please? I know that you can do it.
No one asked me but that hasn't stopped most of us...I say that whether or not someone believes or disbelieves in man made global warming, there is still NO good reason for man to disregard any possible avoidable contribution. We know that we have dirtied the water, soil & air but we are also cleaning them up too.
Don't get me wrong about a few things, I wouldn't close every coal mine or block every oil well but I would maintain all efforts to create/find cleaner fuels with a balance to cost & jobs. In fact, jobs are likely to be created.
I believe that We can get more hydro power too without building dams.
As far as my dear corporate fetch boy button...if it still makes Reality throw little "I'm rich" fits then why change it?
