Ah right :-)

No we don't need 10,000 wind companies, as we don't want 50% of our energy supplied by windmills.
Nor by coal, nor oil, solar, biofuel, nuclear, tidal, donkeys, whatever.
We need all of them combined (well maybe not the donkeys), located where they work best and put bias on what pollutes the least for the money.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:

"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
