The return of sanity

Groups focused on the far-right with respect to energy policy are in the process of falling apart.  This is typical:

The following are talking points related to Duke Energy withdrawing from the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, which Duke Energy has been a member of since the fall of 2007.·

“While some individual members of ACCCE are working to pass climate change legislation, we believe ACCCE is constrained by influential member companies who will not support passing climate change legislation in 2009 or 2010.

· This became increasingly apparent during and after the debate on the Waxman/Markey legislation in the U.S. House in recent months.

· This is not consistent with Duke Energy’s work to pass economy-wide and cost effective climate change legislation as soon as possible.

· Therefore, effective Sept. 1, 2009, Duke Energy resigned from ACCCE”

This is not easy to read or think about, but should be read and deeply thought about.

We are a country of laws.  With authority comes accountability. There are no exceptions.

On the lighter side, this is hilarious.
