Global Warming: Bring It On?

Given the threat of global warming and the obvious, urgent need to develop more clean alternative energy sources like wind and solar as quickly as possible, it is bizarre to see legislation introduced in the U.S. Congress that would essentially outlaw wind power. Not surprisingly, the bill that would do this comes from a Congressman representing one of the leading fossil fuel-producing districts in the country. Let's hope this embarrassing, paleolithic, pathetic piece of legislation is escorted away soon to the merciful death it merits.

PS This legislation, Subtitle D of H.R. 2337, is getting some heavy attention at Digg.com. Good to see.

Yes, I saw, thanks. Nice generic picture of a slammer to represent what the bill would do to those hard-core criminals who would dare to generate clean electricity without a certificate.
