    Who knows, but he or she is indicative of the moonbats pushing those windmills, but just not in their backyard.

    Interesting how the stats changed in the poll. We're now up to 7 moonbats voting against drilling. But check out how many on this board voted for it, 135. Telling, isn't it?

    It's not about one solution. Make it cheap for buildings to place wind turbines on their roofs to generate their own energy. It's a little, but a few turbines on every building will help. Change how we insulate and build houses, it's a little, but it helps. Add solar panels on the tops and sides of houses and buildings, start building new structures with this goal in mind. change fuel standards for cars, get nuclear energy up and runing, and invest a LOT of money in research and development.

    Again, remember the Moon Landing, remember the Manhatten Project, remember the Human Genome Project, if the government takes REAL steps and has REAL motivation to do something never done before, we've proven time and time again that we CAN do it. However, there are currently powerful and wealthy interests who want to prevent such a thing from happening.

    Oil isn't only used for gasoline you know.

    Right now it's the interests of major corporations who are dominating both the government and all of the airwaves that "inform" the American public. These major corporations are INTERNATIONAL corporations, they have no allegiance to any nation, they transcend national boundaries and have their own motivations separate from their country of origin.

    Do you really think these companies want to make America the land of the New Clean Energy Revolution? Sure it'll create millions of jobs here, but this can be done in any country, and in other countries hey can get cheaper labor. They can outsource these valuable jobs before they're even created here.

    So, what exactly is the motivation for major energy corporations to make clean energy production in America?

    Anyone?

    Right. Blame the corporations.

    They wanted to build a wind farm off Cape Cod. Fat Boy Kennedy shot it down.

    You are an idiot because BP is heavily invested in clean energy in this country. You know what the cleanest, cheapest energy source is? Answer, natural gas. Did you know that Exxon just bought XTO which is a natural gas company? Did you know that 80% of the billions for clean energy (wind) was given to foreign companies? How is that was supposed to create American jobs? Did you know that the energy created by the wind farms off the coast of MA will be 3 times more costly (9 cents compared to 27 cents per KW)? Did you know that you are a dumb little fucker?

    If that were the case there would be no unemployment.

    You are a typical liberal. You want and support, even demand feel good crap that has been repeatedly proven a disaster. Why don't you look into the disaster that is Spain for your utopian reality. Do some research and save your unicorns for the children.

    You are a dumb ass. Speaking of employment. Why don't you get a job and lower the unemployment rate?
