a few random thoughts:
--if the Interior Secy says the study period will take two years, how long will that be in real people time?
--will solar be as reliable as what we currently use?
--will it be less expensive?
--is there no one other than govt that can do this? My sense is that when imperial Washington gets involved, it is because the idea sounds good on paper but is a money pit in practice.
--whatever happened to 'do everything'?
--why is nuclear never part of the dialogue?
--will we ever drill domestically for sources we know to be existing to lessen foreign dependence and to buy time till an alternative reaches mass market viability?
--haven't the greens in California killed efforts at developing wind energy over worries about some obscure critter? Will they also come out for similar reasons against this?
--if we're all about diversifying, why are only certain options being picked and chosen?
