    Besides being good for the planet there is a lot of money to be made off green power.There is a lot of opportunity to make bucks off green power.Yet conservatives bitch and moan against making money off green power.Incredible.They sound like a bunch of anti-capitalist socialists.
    What gives with these people?

  3. Nuclear is the only green power we have that works. Everything else takes more energy to produce then you save.

    Green power is all bullshit just like global warming.
     
  4. I wish there were fewer people like you unnecessarily emitting carbon dioxide.
     
  5. Tdog, people like that throw trash out their car window too :mad:

    Nuclear is not green.It is a FOSSIL FUEL that is non renewable,produces a deadly toxic by-product.Nuclear also is hugely socialist as it requires massive govt subsidies to build and maintain.No company is willing to build them without taxpayers insuring them and bailing them out if it melts.Corporate america is not interested in nukes thats why wall st doesnt bother pushing it.Financially, nukes are a toxic investment.
     
  7. I has to do with something called Free Market. If the green technologies are so good, then let them compete with other energy sources on a level playing field. Most green technologies can't compete with fossil fuels, bottomline. Green energy by and large can only compete through government mandates and subsitities. The fact that fossil fuels fuel the majority of the worlds energy needs is not a mistake or an accident. Obama has a green plan for energy and this is a direct quote from His Holiness.

    "When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal…under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket…even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gasses, coal power plants, natural gas…you name it…whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retro-fit their operations.

    That will cost money…they will pass that money on to the consumers. "

    Wow, where did I sign up. This sounds great.
