    ...job at the Solar Energy Research Institute as a consequence of President Carter's comprehensive energy legislation, I appreciate very much what he did in that arena. No other president until the current one did as much for green energy as Carter.

    That being said, part of his program was to provide a boatload of government money for fossil fuels in the form of carbon-based synfuels, clean coal and the development of one of the dirtiest hydrocarbon deposits: oil shale. None of these ever made it to commercialization, but it wasn't for lack of trying but rather the plunge in oil prices and the arrival of Ronald Reagan in office.  

    Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.
