    ts so i'm not really sure what you're talking about, and i said new power plants were put out of existence, the new rules basically made it impossible to build one, i feel like we're in two different worlds.

      Tired, as I said.

      Sure, $6.2 billion in stimulus for "green energy", including the weatherization you mentioned. And bad projects like biomass conversion (burning trees for power) and huge corn ethanol subsidies, among others. Does that make up for fast-tracking fracking across the country? Opening up the Arctic for oil exploration? Pushing Keystone XL? (The southern half is already built). Billions in nuclear subsidies and pushing countries such as India to build more nukes? Pushing yet another inequitable, corporate-written free trade agreement so they can avoid U.S. environmental laws?

      And on and on and on. Sorry, it's bedtime.
