    We're having this discussion 30 years late.

    Think of all the jobs that could have been created if the US had not ceded leadership on solar and wind technology to Europe.

    Hell, we're even having trouble getting enough wind towers to supply the modest building boom we're having now.

    Instead of showing leadership, we've embraced ignorance. Any discussion in a public forum about reneweables will inevitably draw a "sun doesn't shine/wind doesn't blow 24/7" response. As if that was even an issue.

    Reforms come from below. No man with four aces howls for a new deal.
    Keystone XL will raise gas prices!
