Ok Spike, I found something to ramble about, I read that a company,  
BrightSource Energy, has just canceled a 500 megawatt solar generator  
project in the California desert because of intense pressure from  
those all so wise and moral environmentalists. They go on and on about  
the evils of global warming caused by greenhouse gasses and this  
project created none of them, but they opposed it. Solar farms need  
sunny land, the California desert is sunny and has the thinest most  
simple ecosystem of anyplace in the USA (except perhaps northern  
Alaska) but still those very noble environmentalists opposed it.

You can't drill for oil because you just can't, you can't build a dam  
because it might cause a snail nobody ever heard of to become extinct,  
you can't put up windmills because they're ugly and noisy and might  
kill little birdies, you can't use geothermal because it might cause  
earthquakes, you can't install solar collectors because the land is  
sacred to the Uga Buga Indians or some other horse-shit reason, and  
you can't build nuclear reactors because you just can't, and to even  
hint you want to proves you're a Fascist. Our future course of action  
is clear, 6 billion people must freeze to death in the dark, it's the  
only moral thing to do.
