This sounds great, but I hope none of these new energy companies end up like Solyndra.
I hate to see all the waste involving taxpayers' money.

For now, most of these upstarts will always end up like Solyndra, because the technology isn't there to make it feasible to replace "fossil fuel" technology. Think about all of the "un green" activity that would have to take place to make gasoline out of tree waste, and its inefficiency as compared to drilling and refining oil. Even corn ethanol is less efficient than just refining oil, and increases the cost of the gasoline, as well as any and all food products for humans and animals that contains corn.
I ask the green crowd if they think the "hybrid" auto technology is "green", and to explain that position fully.

I have some pulp wood to sell to these companies!
Lord knows, the paper mills haven't been buying much lately!

Is nobody willing to answer the question? Not even "science guy"? Oh no, before he will discuss anything, first you must agree with his premise. After you agree with him, he will discuss a subject with you. Prior to that, you are just ignorant.

Why is it that most people who comment on this subject, especially the ones who judge posts with "clueless, spam or disagree" won't defend their position? Most all of the "climate change" "green" crowd will not debate with a person who doesn't believe the same things as they do about the subjects. They just act like you are ignorant if you don't agree with them right off, and they are above exchanging ideas.
That really sounds to me like they are the ones that are ignorant...
