    Here's a report from the IPCC that says solar can power the world. Any comments?

    Or the Nation could stop subsidizing Nukes, Oil, Coal, Gas, etc. the status quo of the Centralized Distribution Network and spend the same money subsidizing a de-Centralized network such as local renewables and home generation. It'd be free and create a million jobs and release money in local economies, but Exxon/Mobil would suffer. Can't have Exxon/Mobil not be subsidized. Can't have Chevron not be subsidized. Can't have ConEd not subsidized. Those poor millionaires and billionaires. Jeesh, they'd have to get off the gov't dole for big Corporations. That's unRepublican. unConservative. Liberal. Lefty lunacy to try and positively impact the individuals.

    And in the mean time? What would this country do for energy on its way to your demolition of these energy concerns and this Utopian small commune world you envision?

    In the meantime, they continue to drive around in their coal-powered hybrids and electric cars and claim to be "green".

    We already are. Where is the money going to come from, if you kill all actual private sector jobs?


    It'd be free and create a million jobs and release money in local economies,
    How do you figger it will be free?

    but Exxon/Mobil would suffer. Can't have Exxon/Mobil not be subsidized. Can't have Chevron not be subsidized. Can't have ConEd not subsidized. Those poor millionaires and billionaires. Jeesh, they'd have to get off the gov't dole for big Corporations. That's unRepublican. unConservative. Liberal. Lefty lunacy to try and positively impact the individuals.
    I've seen some of these so called deductions and they appear to be more bonafide tax deductions vice actual government handouts. I'm confused as to how people think that writing off business expenses can be considered a subsidy. Care to explain?

    OMG!!!THANK YOU!!!! This is what I was getting at when I asked people to define subsidy! Amazing, and as I suspect posting like Dave's filled with class warfare, and little thought or substance out side what his liberal master dictate through talking point is really a losing subject, fore, repetetion will prevale rather than substance.
