    I personally wish we could see a plan for widespread solar throughout suburban neighborhoods... we'd have enough power that we'd never need oil, let alone foreign oil, again. For all the bitching and bellyaching and posturing the Republicans did over National Security... this is one strategic plan that would be of massive benefit in both war and peace... no knocking out the power grid in superstorms either.

      The US government and military KNOW this for a fact, and have for decades. Around 2003 or thereabouts, govt. commissioned a huge study that concluded solar power IS the best solution for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that it's inexhaustible. But we should investigate all new innovative energy technology, and most of all invest in improved batteries.

      It's been said before, but a National Project that focuses on implementing renewable energy is desperately needed. Of course, if we do that, we won't have an excuse to invade countries like Iraq to try and steal their resources under the cover of hunting for WMD that don't exist.  

      It's a dangerous game we're playing, and so far we're losing rather badly IMO.

      Sorry for the rambling!  Guess I wasn't quite finished with my rant. :)
