    fyi Re: Energy Policy

    Why the government?

    How about repealing stupid and abusive regulations and excessive taxes?

    Then let the free market take care of it.

    Re: Energy Policy

    Since I have to pick just one I would pick geothermal. Nuclear is great and all..but like oil it is not a renewable resource. I would prefer to leave the nuclear option for conveyances like powering the space shuttle or a submarine etc etc.

    Very true. But since I could only pick one I picked that one. Just picking one in this case isn't enough.

    Totally untrue, both wind and solar must be in the energy mix.
    Solar, right now for its direct passive energy.
    Had every home in America been properly positioned and designed, our energy bill could have been 10 - 20% less.

    Wind energy, around for centuries, temporarily replace by cheap oil and coal, now those days are over.

    Nuclear, 50,000,000 Frenchmen cannot be wrong.

    Oil should only be for lubricants, plastics, so many other things. and the day is coming.

    So what ??
    We should use those that are available.
    For energy, there can be no single source.
    Our goal must be to free ourselves from any dependence.
    This is possible if we try, and avoid making silly excuses.
    And I also favor drilling, everyplace; the environment need not be spoiled...

    Yeah, lets regress a century or a millennial, no regulations, no taxes.
    Instead - slavery, black lung disease, misery, and poverty for the working class.

    Re: Energy Policy

    WHile discussing this, bear in mind that wind, solar, geothermal, etc. are all SUPPLEMENTS, not true alternatives. A true alternative will be able to replace coal completely. Nuclear is the only one that can do that. The second largest contributor to our energy mix is conservation. We waste an inordinate amount of it in buildings that are poorly designed, oriented, and built.
