    @Uncle Joe

    Then why do the left charge there Priuss with coal?

    So educate us, tell us about those clean energy sources that produce as much as coal and oil and as cheaply.

    They do get charged at night, the first forty miles no gas. Electric cars and hyprids use coal.

    Koch brothers are the source of all evil hey, tell me what dose George Soros thinks about that?

    Will we need to keep using coal for the near to mid-future? Absolutely, yes. Is it the dirtiest source of energy? Well, not quite, tar sands are giving it a serious run for that title. Are all “energy” sources pretty much controlled by the same world-wide cartels? Yup.


    Does the buck beat the brain with the publics? Yup!

    Unless the electricity is produced by renewable sources.

    Ok how much of our electricity is produced by windmills so far? Less then 15% less then 10% less then 5% how about 3.78% as of last year.

    Listen get us up to say 15% then you will have something till build on till then sorry.

    As others pointed out, few Prii plug in.(Seriously, “Prii” is what Toyota came up with as the plural.) Even when powered by coal fired power plants, electric vehicles pollute less than gas powered. Of course, when they are powered by solar/wind/hydro plants, they make no pollution.

    The Kochs spend big money on squashing renewable energy use & research.

    If they are “plug-in” electric cars plugged into the grid that use coal to generate electricity. Coal fired plants are old technology that needs to be replaced. A lump of coal in your christmas stocking!

    The huge Mohave solar project is going on line, providing electricity to something like a 1/2 million homes. It’s made a mess of a lot of desert land, and all “green energy” programs,, wind, solar, etc, are NOT all so “green”.


    The secret is a multiplex of opportunities, for both conservation, and generation, but we still need to get a lot smarter on all ends!


    The options are closing rapidly if we do nothing, and just making more profit today, like the Kochs DO want, is closing a lot of those options for posterity.

    The Prius and other such type “hybrid” cars are really gasoline vehicles that convert gasoline to battery / electric power to then run the vehicle. There are NO commercially made Toyota plug in Prius’s.

    Please link us to the site that says Kock Bros are spending millions to suppress clean energy.

    Your inability to do basic research through Google explains a lot. I don’t expect you to agree with my opinion, but you should at least be aware that the Kochs spend money to support their business interests. We may agree on whether its better or worse for the Kochs to get their way.

    The Kochs are indeed buying up ethanol refineries. Ethanol exists mainly because of government subsidies & mandates, which would be anathema to free-market conservatives like the Kochs, but money wins over ideology every time.

    Look into ethanol & subsidies. There is very little for a true conservative to like.
