21. Where's your wind and solar? Wind is now 26% of all Texas electrical generation, and we've

been working on it less than 10 years. Zero fuel costs for solar or wind, can't be beat. I'm enjoying the 5.6 cent per KWH rate I get from my wind provider. TXU, they of the filthy coal and nuclear options, were charging me 20.2 cents.

Natural gas is also right at $2 now, way down from the $10 on your 5 year old chart.

And anyone who still wants to burn coal and petroleum? Well, they deserve what they get.

Debt is just a number - look at how many bankruptcies of major companies and even countries occur, and yet people go right on living.


I told you, we will need more knowledge on climate change, not less - I didn't ignore it at all.

Who paid $100k for education? My MAEd was $27,000 in 2003. I mean, of course, shop wisely, but education is essential. Or in the words of the immortal bumper sticker:

"Think education is expensive? Try ignorance."

Thanks for your replies - they're relevant and civil!
