First things first

To the numerous people who have pointed out that we need to let the market determine which technologies win - That is a great idea in an idealized world where the government does not get paid by giant corporations to pass legislation that mandates their products and creates very high barriers to entry by any competing technologies. The fact is we cannot fix these problems if we don't end corrupt practices of government and industry that disable the healthy functioning of the market. And that problem is much bigger than symptoms like climate change, air pollution and eco-tastrophe. Why? Because most people don't get it and the ones that do are the ones who are doing it!
