REPOWERING AMERICA while remaining in the dark intellectually


Repower America with 100% clean electricity so that it can continue growing its population to the point where all gains from this soft energy path will be wiped out by the additional consumers. Consumers can continue to build bigger houses on farmland, drive more and bigger cars, accumulate more electronic toys , boats, ATVs and snowmobiles, overuse national parks, consume more scarce water, and more resources generally. In short, they can use the energy savings from this new clean power source for higher consumption elsewhere.

Sweep away one limiting factor---energy---only to press up against a myriad of others.

Yep, the soft green message of progressive polyannas remains consistent. Consistently delusional!

Better to be depressed by reality than buoyed up by fantasy. You can’t solve a problem by pretending that you don’t have one, or being afraid to attack its roots.
