We could be doing this already except Big Oil owns Washington, DC. Until millions start leaving their homes and demanding change by surrounding DC, until millions start actually making their Representative accountable to the We the People and not the Oil Barons, then we only will get these incremental and small measures.

Maybe when people can't drink their water from the tar sands pollution, can't breath the air from coal, no longer have a mountain for the have all been blown up, maybe when most the population will not be able to afford the oil, and the lights go out, and they can't heat their homes, maybe then......the people will scream Wind. That is if they have good enough lungs to scream anymore.

Great way to move forward. Politicians spout so much hot air, let's make use of it! I.m all for green energy.

offshore wind is a great idea at least w/r to some of the complaints of noise and bothering humans....still would like bird/bat friendly turbines....but I am a huge wind fan and think if we had listened to President Carter in the late 70s and invested in wind and solar we might not be in the energy and environmental situation we currently are in.....
