  •  So When Do The Assassins (4.00)
    From Big Oil and Saudi Arabia come knocking on your doors? I'ld be listening closely to the sound your car makes when you start it up...

    I like the plan -- have you circulated it to centrist/left think tanks like Brookings? Urban Institute? Sent out info packets to lawmakers? Emailed a copy to Howard Dean?

    Is there a carbon trading market in there?

    Good Job.

      keep driving...
    •  Carbon trading market (4.00)
      Yes, in act 14  
      Revise pollutant certificate trading ... Energize America would add CO2 certificates (which are already traded on a voluntary basis) to the mix.

      Obvisously an area that needs more detail.  I know there are critics who would think that the certificate trading market amounts to a pollution shell game, but it's been very effective in bringing down SO2.  Nothing works with these guys like bringing in the power of greed.

      I'm distressed by the first two sentences in your comment.  Unnecessary.  Unfunny.  Unhelpful.  Illplaced.

    •  Get them roped in (none)
      One way to pre-empt the big oil from sabatoge, is to get them roped in early.  Give them incentives for helping to provide the new infrastructure, building energy components like solar panels, bio-diesal, etc.
