    I all for closing coal power plants, but until we have the generation capacity to replace them, it is stupid to put such a strain on the public by all these regulations. Bio-fuels, hey, all for them, if they don't wreck havoc on the food supply. Natural Gas vehicles, great, make it doable and practical. Solar power, not particularly against it in some cases, but face it, it will be a longtime, if ever before it can meet all our power needs. Same with windmills. Damn shame both are hell on good cropland in agricultural areas. Don't like fertilizer run off, give us an alternative that works and is doable. Don't like pesticides, great, find us another way to stop bugs from eating our food so that we get that food. Don't like animal waste run off, ok, then we could use the waste for fertilizer, but then some of it runs off anyways. So many of them like their hamburgers, ribs and chicken sandwiches, well, we have to grow the animals to make those. Think the air is bad in LA now, imagine what it would be like with all those families having horses instead of cars.

    If the environmentalist and their supporters would invest 1/10th of what they spend on lobbying and hire some good engineers, they could of already built working viable alternatives to what we use today. There would be no need for all these laws and regulation. Hell, if they did that, in a decade, they would be the 1% that everyone complains about. Trying to force technology through regulation is just plain stupid.
    Hear! Hear!

    The best green technology is one that wins all on it's own without government life support, and the world will beat a path to that door way.

    It's not so much which technology, it's that the government is interfering and distorting the market which is the worst. You always seem to end up with a worse solution and more expensive solution to the problem.

    what they don't realize they take everyone else down with it.

    I agree i am not anti-enviroment either. i think we should be working on different energy sources, but i also know we can't kill the current energy systems until the next one is in place.

    nuclear power is the next evolution in energy. while so called renewable energy is there it just doesn't compare in power generation. solar takes up huge amounts of land space that could be used for better purposes. wind creates it's own environmental hazards, hydro is only good in certain area's along with geothermal. all of these are location specific.
    If I recall correctly, geothermal typically has very corrosive minerals and mineral compounds which cause problems which aren't easily (inexpensively) solved. But hey, let's get one of those eco-engineers on that problem and solve it, right?

    I haven't heard that but the thing about massive grid geothermal is that you need to be sitting on some kind of thermal activity. the hot springs in CA for instance.
    very limited.

    now for individual housing it is fine. they drill a hole and heat the water using the earths own heat.

    A core tap? Interesting idea, yet no one has started digging a hole for one even though the idea has been around awhile.

    This right here is how it's obvious you don't understand basic scientific principles. You're spitting out words you vaguely remember from 6th grade science, and you're doing it wrong.
