Cantfish, please answer these questions...Do you drive a hybrid? How many solar panels do you have installed on your roof?
There weren't any hybrids that I could afford when I bought my car. I wanted one, but they are too expensive right now. I know what you are implying; "hypocrite." Not really. I'm not saying we should all run out and buy hybrids and electrics right away. I am saying that we should start implementing some of these things now, so that by the time we need everyone using them, most will be driving them. We can subsidize hybrid and electric purchases. Give incentives for businesses to have recharging stations etc. The more of these vehicles that are built, the less expensive they will become, until even an average guy like myself can afford them. I rent. I have no choice as to who puts solar panels on their apartments. None where I live do so. That's another good example of offering incentives and have some requirements, so that we start moving that way over the next decade or so. Hopefully my next car will be a used hybrid, or possibly new, but I doubt I have the money for that.
Better be putting together one hell of a plan to survive this clusterfuck.
If it isn't listed on the commodities market, it gets plowed under in favour of something that is. There's no money in willows or young poplar or native grasses.
