Very interesting indeed, thank you for bringing this to us.
David is right and I thought that I heard you thinking of Rahm Emmanuel when Dave mentioned that we humans do not react until there is a crisis.
Yes change is hard to make and may even be impossible because of two massive problems.
Those that hold the wealth along with the power and control that it brings them, and the inability of modern Americans to even consider using less rather than more technology (conservation).
Every energy company CEO, Board of Directors and the BPU’s that rule with them will absolutely never allow for their incomes to drop.
Incomes, bonuses, kick-backs must ALWAYS get larger and they have the power to keep it that way.
Greed will NOT be overcome.
The American public is so hopelessly programmed to consume anything and everything that it is force fed that I simply cannot see any reduction or conservation ever being a part of any functioning plan.
It is pretty clear from your work Jim that you are a huge fan of conservation and I can assure you that I have always been exactly the same all of my life.
I despise waste and excess, but people like us, at least outside of some safe and happy place, are not appreciated at all and even reviled by those who hopelessly consume mass quantities.
It is very wonderful to hear of this project in Vermont and David was very impressive.
I just hope that he is not overrun by all of those Californians headed his way, yuk, yuk.
