Since this is a perennial favorite topic here--"Where we gonna git our
energy from?"--I thought it apropos to post this news flash:
The U.S. may never need to build new nuclear or coal-fired power
plants because renewable energy and improved efficiency can meet future
power demand, the head of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said.
To all those red-meat,
gotta-build-more-nukes-and-greenhouse-gas-spewing-coal-plants types here
(we know who you are), keep in mind: this isn't some granola-eating,
tree-hugging enviro-meddler talking, but the head of the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission.
Talk amongst yourselves.
 That phrase courtesy of the big enviro-meddler (and monkey-wrencher)
hisself, Ed Abbey.
