As FERC chairman he would be "source neutral" on energy, Binz said, adding that he would emphasize reliability.

Therefore no XL!

What happened to efficiency emphasis?

Energy efficiency doesn't benefit the 'mainstream' fossil fuel interests. And lower consumption may impact their monopoly power to set high prices on their 'assets'.

Therefore, it has little support among the rich politicians who have large stakes in the energy sector.

To save confusion, dirtling needs to sign off with, "slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig dirtling". People are mistaking it for a human being, instead of "eart hling, alien has no affinity to Earth & "injun killer- has no love for human beings".

toxic topix, a conservative business mouthpiece of non-science political re-pubic-lick-un diatribe, settled in for a "news" website of denial-speak. When AGW advocates & science opposed such political lie-speak, coyotes like "slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig dirtling" & "slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig & alleged & proud threatener lyin' brian" showed up with their own brand of confrontational, uncivilized racism, threats & toxic topix AGW denier trash.

"slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig dirtling" got tired fer a bit, but took some more denial lessons & is back with more non-science & mayhem.

But thanks for understanding that political untruth, based on poor civilization, mathematic error, & non-education is formidably countered by accurate mathematics, science & education.

First, can we truthfully say there is a mainstream today?

Second, if there is wouldn't it be better to not be mainstream?

Yes. When 97+% of the relevant experts agree, there is no question what is 'mainstream'.

Why? Clean in mainstream. You argue for getting dirty because?? Why would it be 'better' to be rogue (or contrarian)?

Explain your logic.
