New Discussion Group Forming

This group will examine and propose practical, cost-effect solutions to the present and future cost and availability of energy in the U.S and around the world.

Participants will contribute information and ideas posted elsewhere. Respectful responses to these posting will be encouraged to the extent that comments are specific to the information under consideration. Particular attention will be paid not only to relevant news and events, but also to identifying best policies and practices which can be implemented to bring about the transition to a cleaner, reliable, and more cost-effective, power market.

Examination of true cost pricing, net energy, free and fair markets, deregulation, and the sustainable use of renewable energy resources to create a plentiful energy future will be among the focal points.

The things you're asking about are things consumers are unwilling to do because we've got (and soon won't) cheap energy. Otherwise a few simple sacrifices on everybodys part would take care of the problem. Until the "let George do it" attitude disappears our problems will continue ad infinitum.
