    Now, the proposal I describe is a narrow version of full true cost pricing, since it focuses only on new capital investment and also is focused on energy intensive producers and consumers.

    I'm a huge believer in true cost pricing and I see this as an opportunity to introduce it into a part of the economy.

    So a 'true cost' model for energy pricing would very rapidly compel energy companies to move smartly to renewables, because it would simply be more profitable.

    What I really like about your last statement is that it captures the heart of the matter - set the rules and let individuals (people, companies, ...) make decisions that work well in that framework.

    We shall not participate in our own destruction.
