after reading this thread i have become convinced it would have been more pleasurable to read the cap and trade bill. the one thing i am certain of: it won't be a bunch of eggheads exercising their mental muscles about efficiency,building envelopes,tossing politicians out etc. that will bring our future energy plan into being, it WILL be the free market. without the free market you would be writing your rants with a quill and home made ink. it will always come through if you allow it. government is for delivering mail, printing money and defending us from foriegn and domestic enemies.
