    to sustainability. I don't know if that's "sexy".

    Ultimately, producing energy used right in the place it's going to be consumed makes more sense than continue to build and support the infrastructure necessary to transport it. Decentralization brings diversity, scalability, national security, builds back up American made manufacturing, and can be done in a way minimizes ecological damage.  

    Maybe that it is "sexy", after all.

      unless absolutely necessary.  Manufacturing too.  And so on.

      An idea is not responsible for who happens to be carrying it at the moment. It stands or falls on its own merits.

    •  Wasn't the 20th century all about (0+ / 0-)

      a focus on the macro and denial of the micro?  As if the macro could be other than the sum of the micro.

      For me that's exactly what's wrong with the health care bills in Congress.  Financing (insurance) can never make the unaffordable affordable.
