My personal methane production is up 22% over last year and I flush my radiator and change my oil over the storm drain in front of my house...oh...and I haven't turned off a light in my house in 26 years. You'd be surprised how many recipes there are for spotted owl and delta smelt...
(The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon
The green liberals are all BS! Anyone that is green for the sake of being green is just stupid. That said, I have a solar PV electric plant on my roof, drive two Prius, have an Infinity HVAC system and added 20" of blown fiberglass into my attic - but I am not green. I did these things all based on economics.
The solar plant (thanks to rebates and SRECs) paid for itself in under four years and now kicks off about $9,000 to me a year. The two Prius are 2002 and I bought thm in 2005 and 2006 when gas was cheap and nobody wanted them. The Infinity was added a year ago when the state, the feds, the contractor, and Carrier all subsidized it, and the insulation was done for my comfort.
