BREAKING THE BAKER'S WINDOW DOES HIM A FAVOR:

Greener, cleaner ... and competitive?: Renewables could supply one-quarter of US energy by 2025, with no harm to economy, a study says. (Mark Clayton, 12/04/06, The Christian Science Monitor)

While most renewable fuels can't yet compete with their traditional counterparts, their costs of production are falling steadily. If the trend continues, America's energy mix by 2025 could be far greener and cleaner - without damaging the economy - than most analysts could have antici-pated a few years ago.

That development would not only reduce the nation's dependence on oil, it would mean a substantial start on capping its greenhouse-gas emissions, which most scientists link to global warming. And such a move, if the RAND analysis proves correct, would come at little or no cost to the economy.


It's a delightful irony that free marketeers assume technological stasis.
