Slight problem. In order to get the alternative energy like wind farms and solar from the deserts to the cities some kind of power lines have to be run across states,. It is kind of like Federal Prisons-everyone sees the need but not in my back yard. If it does';t happen the President's plan will be economically unfeasible. Harry Reid is introducing a bill that would give the Federal Government the power to run the lines where they please despite any objections from the States. Reid says it is "SETTLED" the Feds will do it.... LOl Linda

Don't worry, Linda.

This is such small potatoes in the big energy picture that it won't matter much.

The Left thinks the 50% increase in green energy production will fill the gap. It's going to take at least a decade to get this stuff up and running. By then if nothing has been done to expand nuclear, convert more users to plentiful natural gas, conserve, and increase oil exploration, production and refining, last year's $150/barrel oil will look cheap.
