    that. and the fact that such isn't economically feasible. even with massive government subsidies these programs can't compete in the market place. how many chevy volts are getting sold? something like 200 a month?

    incidentally - you may want to look up the ecological devastation wrecked by the production of those battery engines. since you brought it up earlier.
    On the battery BANK issue, lithium battery production is energy inefficient due to our assinine global production models built around cheap oil. And new lithium chemistries are less toxic and more recyclable. Technology in these areas is advancing faster than its opponents can spin it. Because the rest of the world WANTS this stuff.

    FOOLS!

    I could see tougher solar panels getting worked into roofing material once their price comes down; and houses having some kind of an automatic "takes from the roof and then from the grid" switch...

    miniaturized nuclear plants also deserve mention. but those are decisions for housing companies and counties and cities, not the federal government.
    Please research solar power a little more. You just described the most common type of solar system sold in America, referred to as grid tied. Excess power is provided to the grid and during the day and returned watt for watt at night.

    Wind turbines have small footprints and the Great Plains is the Persian Gulf of wind.

    Again, China and the rest of the world disagree with you on this. Billions are being made selling stuff you swear people don't want to buy.

    I love conservatives that laugh in the face of science as they post on the Internet. Derrrr. Yeah, drive your car, type on your laptop, and watch your TV, but let those scientists know how full of **** they are! And screw that liberal education system!

    Didn't think so.

    So why should polluters get to dump their crap in everybodys air for free?
    I'd let you if the other choice was the total destruction of our economy and our way of life.

    That's what the cap and trade bill that passed the house would do.

    an educated electorate.....is dangerous. The more educated we are, the harder it is for the politicans to get our support....
    and which party is most often against education for the peasantry?
