    You do realize that distrbuted production, mass transit, alternative enrgy would cost fossil fuel interests TRILLIONS of dollars in profits, right?

    Of course you do. Buttered bread and all that.

    The global population explosion is racing up to bite us in the ass while we wring our hands over manufactured nonsense.

    Americans used to have a "screw it we'll figure out something else" mentality, instead of this "it works now so fight til you win to keep doing it until it blows up in your face" BS that comes out of the conservative propaganda firehose.

    Not attacking you, sorry if it sounds that way. But this is an expensively manufactured lie that I find particularly offensive, so I don't respond well.
    That's sad. I didn't realize we had given up on wind, solar, electric cars, bio-fuels and all other alternatives to coal and oil.

    You do realize that if the global warming hoax is ever truly debunked and cap and trade goes in the crapper, lots of people and other countries will lose out on trillions they expected to gain, right?

    Look, ya jackalope, I've been looking for a way around the loss of private transportation since shortly after I started driving.

    Population, traffic jams, air pollution, foreign wars for oil, oil spills, speculation, profiteering, socializing risks/expenses, all promise an eventual end to private GASOLINE powered transportation.

    Electric has been waiting for batteries, and now they're here. Now we're just waiting for economies of scale to bring prices down.

    Embracing electrics also has the side benefit of providing grid storage, upping our efficiency DRAMATICALLY.

    Propaganda spread by oil companies(working in their rational self-interest) is the only thing standing in the way.

    Thanks for helping. NOT!

    it's just that it will bankrupt you

    cuz you're gonna "be charged a huge sum because of all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted"

    YouTube - OBAMA tells San Francisco He WILL BANKRUPT THE COAL INDUSTRY Energy to SKYROCKET!!

    The majority of drivers commute less than 40 miles each day.



    You are not knowledgable about solar systems. I have a 1.5 KW solar panel system that will pay for itself in 7 years. The remainer of the 25 year life of the panels produces free electricity from the !!!
    And I have a few friends with OLD solar panels that are still performing satisfactorily, WELL past their rated lifespan!

    The first automobiles SUCKED compared to horses.

    But they were fast!

    When did Americans lose their drive to lead the world technologically?

    To just LIVE on the bleeding edge of the future.

    Oh yeah, the 80's. Greed is good. War is Peace. Ignorance is Strength.

    BAH!!!

    by intentionally bankrupting coal, one of our few remaining industries and source of jobs?

    the 2012 obama campaign, here, is coming completely unglued

    YouTube - Twilight Zone intro.

    at least there haven't been anymore tantrums...

    so far
