Re: [hreg] a "Good Thing" to look at things from different points of view...
- This statement, to "conservative right wing corporate types who already (literally) own the media - TV, newspapers, and magazines." is inaccurate.Even if conservatives do own the media it is not conservatives who work in the media and create the drivel they are prone to broadcast.SBT Designs

It is a "Good Thing" to look at things from different points of view, don't you think?

In response to Claude's fostering of his interest in Nuclear by excluding objections from the HREG list, I say that a discussion group about renewable energy is absolutely proper in discussing the costs of existing forms of energy production. And the direct and indirect costs of nuclear energy, including from waste products or terrorists attacks, fall under the scrutiny of this group.
Subsidies of conventional energy sources have been a formidable barrier to incorporation of RE and alternative energy technologies. If we can not talk about the unfair practices (of lobbied-for-special-interest-gained-tax-breaks-and-direct-government-spending- on-fossil-fuel-and-nuclear-energy), then we have, in effect, sold out to the conservative right wing corporate types who already (literally) own the media - TV, newspapers, and magazines. Please note how the Bush/Cheney Energy Plan supports advancing nuclear energy storage capability. Mmmm, that means subsidization, and that means RE is treated unfairly.
I can not help but think that so many tragic and pitiful events are
allowed to occur in this world because not enough voices are heard from the tax-paying-and-ruled-to-death citizens. There will be NO restriction to what is discussed on this list, as long as discussion is not vulgar, personally attacking, or intended merely to inflame.
It is comments like yours that alienate many who support solar, wind and renewable energy, but who are conservative politically and morally. By doing so, you are limiting the base of support for renewables to only those persons who support renewables for the same reason that you do. Your reference to "conservative right wing corporate types who already (literally) own the media - TV, newspapers, and magazines." is out of line.
I believe that it is also naive to believe that conservatives do not love the environment and that they control the media.
As I have said before, I will say again: Keep your political jabs to yourself. Keep this discussion group on the issues.
