Thanks for explaining the power generation issue-- as best any one can understand this tangled issue. I live in Wesr Virginia where our land is being recontoured by mountaintop removal. Where we once had mountains, we now have golf courses but no one to use them? We also have wind farms and they are magnificent; but people have found a way to criticize them. First, there wasn't enough wind for our local utilities to feel it worth the effort so out-of-state utilities moved in to use our wind for their gain. It's a shame that even gas and electricity has to be "transmitted" all over the country rather than put to local use.

What has happened to conservation of energy? I keep my usage to a minimum and I go through regular bouts with both the gas and electric companies because I "should" be using more gas or electricity.
