    driving out coal.  You're wrong to minimize the long term significance of the renewables boost in the ARRA.

      Sorry.  Didn't mean to under play that.   Long term that will prove to be very important.  My point is only that it isn't what has driven the pattern from 2007-2013.  From 2015+ I imagine that will have a big impact.  Once all those renewable plants come online in 2014 and beyond, etc we will see impact from that also

      And if the Powder Rover Basin and Keystone and the Chuckchi Sea drilling get nixxed we might see real progress toward the -80% reductions from 1990 levels we need.

        As Chu himself said, most of his accomplishments won't have their visible impact for at least a decade.

        Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.
