I understand and actually with agree your point. You are right in saying that Global Warming is the new abortion of politics because it has divided the aisles and no one is listening anymore.
That said, I believe anything in excess is bad. The only reason I believe in energy conservation is to make my monthly bill lower. Other than that, it doesn't make economical sense.
I, for one, also believe that as humans we are nieve to think that we can destroy something we cannot create. My critics say that we are destroying the planet; however, the fact that we are unable to stop a hurricane from killing thousands of people sort of disproves that fact and a hurricane is less than 1% of the total energy that can be produced by nature.
I believe that company's like Verdiem have good intentions but it seems to me that their profitability is only going to rise as the government makes further restrictions on power consumption. When a business primarily exists on the hope of future congressional action the model has flaws. I am not saying that is the case with Verdiem but I see many businesses that fit that model.
A business that is based on the demand of the consumer is more likely to succeed.
Thanks for the post.
