On When Is Cheaper Oil Bad?

"since their output doesn't compete with oil, and their funding doesn't derive from it--yet."  Geoff, what do lower gas prices do for the move to plug-in hybrids?  Same effect, or lack of, as overall efficient vehicles?  Agreed, it's preferable that prices remain high for the climate benefits, especially since the Congress has not demonstrated the will to enact higher taxes or a cap and trade system.  But do you think Pickens' arguments about transfer of wealth might have some impact on the next Congress?

On Pickens in a pickle: He embraces progressive policies but not progressive politicians.

It's a huge contradiction about Pickens and, of course, has not been sufficiently developed by the all the media coverage his plan has received.  Thanks for pinning him on this one, Joe.

On Barack Ombama's Nuclear Energy Policy

Dan,  Yes, my ears stood to attention as well during Obama's speech.  Overall, however, I was more impressed with the breadth and specificity in his discussion of energy policy.

Mark, we're all psyched about this and hope all our members will join us on this call.  What's amazing to us at The Energy Collective is the degree to which energy and environmental concerns have increased in voters' importance since the beginning of this endless campaign season.  Because of the inter-active nature of this forum, it's a chance for all of us to voice these concerns to the people who will be shaping policy.

Sounds like you've got Potomac Fever.  Blame the Founders for putting the political capital in a separate city.

On Efficiency Will Have the Last Laugh

Am I the only one in this conversation indelicate enough to point out the obvious phallic qualities of this particular symbol?
