    Would somebody please inform the gentleman from Minnisota that we're striving to create alternative energy and that he's had 7 YEARS to argue his case.

    Anybody know if this dude owns a vacation property on Nantucket Sound?

    A Democrat trying to stop alternative forms of energy? Impossible!

    1. Nuclear - Too Dangerous
    2. Hydroelectric - Harms environment
    3. Wind - Ugly

    Yet another Democrat to thank for keeping the US dependent on foreign oil. :cuckoo:

    xsited, you are full of it. The primary opposition to alternative forms of energy has come from Republicans. Nuclear is very expensive. Good ballast, but too spendy for the primary source,and has some waste disposal problems. Hydroelectric is good, but just where do you propose to put some new dams? Most of what is practical to do has already been done in terms of hydroelectic. Wind is hardly ugly. And does not scar the land or create greenhouse gases.

    And what has your idiot done in the last eight years to get us off of dependance on foriegn oil?

    Funny. You know as well as I that Nuclear is safe and efficient. Just look at France. Yet anytime anyone mentions Nuclear energy, the Democrats go nuts. Here's a good article about Dams. I mentioned Wind power as more of a joke for some idiot politicians who oppose it.

    What has my idiot? Just who is my idiot?
