    Green, what you propose is nice, however wind and solar don`t produce power 24/7/365, as in night time. You talk about badly needed jobs, are you suggesting the oil companies go out of business, how many workers would be without a job? There will always be a need for oil, if not for gasoline, the hundreds of by-products from oil. North Dokota couldn`t produce enough power to keep the lights on in New York City. At best wind and solar can produce 20% of the countries needs for power. The best source of power would come from nuclear, it`s clean, nothing to contribute to global warming, if there is such a thing. Give a thought to 100`s of miles of wire that are needed to transport power from wind and solar, along with constant maintance.

    There could be no better investment in America than to invest in America becoming energy independent! We need to utilize everything in out power to reduce our dependence on foreign oil including using our own natural resources. Create cheap clean energy, new badly needed green jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. The cost of fuel effects every facet of consumer goods from production to shipping costs. It costs the equivalent of 60 cents per gallon to charge and drive an electric car. If all gasoline cars, trucks, and SUV's instead had plug-in electric drive trains the amount of electricity needed to replace gasoline is about equal to the estimated wind energy potential of the state of North Dakota.We have so much available to us such as wind and solar. Let's spend some of those bail out billions and get busy harnessing this energy. Create cheap clean energy, badly needed new jobs and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. What a win-win situation that would be for our nation at large! There is a really good new book out by Jeff Wilson called The Manhattan Project of 2009 Energy Independence Now. http://www.themanhattanprojectof2009.com
