What are we progressing to? We invented a carbon footprint. Burn whatever you want, you can't make energy from nothing. Coal is dirty, shut them down. Fight natural gas pipelines for whatever reason. Burn natural gas or oil for a couple of months, it's better than what we were doing. Wind power is ugly and just a supplement. Solar is a freaking joke. doesn't matter which way you spin it. Nuclear power makes steam and hot water in a river. Whatever you choose, has a consequence/reaction. The way I look at it: If you don't like the noise from airplanes. don't buy a house next to the airport.
