While we all discuss what we think should and shouldn't be done by big brother to control what private industry does, or how much money it makes, something is brewing in the private sector. Imagine my suprise when I read a little story in the news about T. boone Pickens ( a evil big oil billionaire ) who is going to spend $10 BILLION on the worlds biggest wind farm!
Imagine that, a private sector business person who can see where the market is heading and investing money to promote and build something that is good for the earth and his company. I wonder if we will get the same whining and complaining from the left if he starts to make tooooo much money? Or will the same people complain about the environmental impact of putting up wind mills? Of course they will, they have already started. Blogs that I see already are insulting the man, personal insults etc. name calling. One blog writer was even complaining about how big the "wind turbines" were.
This is a great example of how the market will take care of itself without having Big Brother dictate what can and can't be done.
