Elisa, thank you for this post. It is right on the money. In the south, some churches are trying to lead the way. My church put solar panels on our roof: http://www.sunnyportal.com/Templates/PublicPageOverview.aspx?page=08ac458b-7f37-4d25-90f4-a0c305714d4f&plant=96055350-3a92-44b9-89e7-b3d3beb656f5&splang=en-US We are also a member of North Carolina Interfaith Power and Light and GreenFaith - two organizations that promote renewable energy for churches. We have gotten lots of interest from other churches, liberal and conservative alike.
Jeff is a rarity in this modern world - a gentleman.
It always amazes me when proponents of small government support nuclear power. Talk about a contradiction.
Many years in commercial lending with one of the largest banks in America taught me a few lessons ---- all of which would make me run from this deal as fast as I could. It fails the sniff test right out of the chute.
A good deal doesn't need this much defense. These sorts of responses are warning signs --- red flags. They negate the need for any further research.
By the way: how many of you actually have PV sytems on your roofs? Every day you delay is more CO2 in the atmosphere. What this industry needs is fewer enthusiasts and more people who will actually take the plunge and buy a system. Quit making excuses. Go solar today.
