He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No wonder all the coal and oil boys are ****ting their pants. Their days of polluting the world are nearing an end.
    Too bad so many people are out of work and can't afford to install those systems.

    My ole lady is a believer in green energy. She invited some clown over to the house to show us his solar system. She **** a brick, when he told her it was 26 g's. That's when I reminded her that if Obama hadn't put the drilling moratorium in place, we could probably afford it.

    Green energy is all fine-n-good, but since Obama has killed the job market, no one can afford to purchase the equipment. Those unintended consiquences are a mother ****er. Tax credits don't mean jack ****, when you don't have a job.

    26g's........ yeahh.... i think ill stick to paying what i pay now for the bill cause... 26g's is what ill pay in 15years or more for the energy bill.... any ways. if we do get this movement on the way, umm.... what exactly are the type of "jobs" that will be available, what type of requirements are going to be needed? things like that would matter most you know?

    I don't have a problem with pushing energy issues ahead of us running out of oil. Its an example of what I don't mind the government spending money on. Public transporation is another. I think we missed the boat big time by not investing in large scale public transportation systems and having them in place now instead of facing staggering costs to start now. If we are going to invest in "clean energy" lets not just put money here, there and everywhere. Let's focus on the most promising ideas. Electric cars aren't a bad idea. Electricity can be produced from many, many different fuel sources so it makes sense to take advantage of that. We won't need a huge infrastructure change like with hydrogen fuel cells. I see solar energy as problematic. The infrastructure is very costly relative to the amount of energy produced. Just try a small scale solar energy project for your home. It is not cheap. I wish Republicans and Democrats would be reasonable and get together on practical energy issues divorced from all the global warming hysteria. It just needs to be done.

    just for grins...has anyone heard of prgress in the realm of harnessing H3 power? If we are looking for actual viable fuel resources it is going to have to be something that is powerful and relatively safe.

    There isnt a one size fits all answer. If they mandated all new homes be built with solar panels...that would help. Utilize wind power and hydrogen where viable. Clean coal and oil shouldnt be abandoned just because the anti fossil fuels set hates it. We should look at ways to improve fuel economy...better mass transit...utilizing electric cars in small communities. LOTS of things working together.

    What if a new home builder doesn't WANT solar panels?

    Frankly I think it should have been a part of building codes since the mid 80s. I think they should have eliminated 110VAC house power where possible. And if people dont WANT solar panels, then there is always candles. We mandate more efficient means of construction all the time. And OK...OK...heres a compromise...no mandating solar panels but higher energy rates or tax credits for those that implement them.

    Wow you almost sound like Jimmy Carter.
