  •  It's the "FARM" that is the problem.... (4.00)
    One thing that rang true in RFK's article is the "privatization of the commons" argument.  Who will make money off of this?  Not us.

    What I want to see is appropriate technology.  Why not create home sized windmills and improve turbine efficiency?  Solar panels for roofs?  Etc. Etc.  Why do we always insist on the capital-intensive way?  That is a fundamental error.  If you want to fix our society, start finding "capital conserving" ways to do things, so that people have more control over energy production, consumption, etc.  A little Ivan Illich would go a long way here.
