    a lot of things to dissect, but at least we're starting to get more material to be dissected.

      So much to hope for, and so much to take issue with.

      My personal face palm is the constant juxtaposition of economy vs. environment.  It doesn't work like that!

      Money spent on energy efficiency is economic stimulus and more blue collar jobs.

      Money spent now updating the grid and instituting feed-in tariffs would lead to cleaner and less centralized, more distributed power generation, which will keep lights on during storms.

      By decreasing coal and gas generation, that same money will reduce our carbon footprint and saving countless millions of dollars in the future, not to mention lives.

      Clean energy = a better economy.  We need to get that through their thick skulls in Washington.  The proof is all around us -- the wind revolution (now threatened by Congress not extending the production tax credit), auto battery makers in Michigan, and on and on, as documented over and over (by CERES, Pew, PERI, Green For All..)

      Clean Energy = Jobs and a Future for our Kids.

      “Better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference.” -- FDR, 1936
