THE MARCH W HAS NO INTENTION OF LETTING THEM STEAL:

Europe creates attractive clean energy scene (James Kanter, January 16, 2007, International Herald Tribune)

Making solar panels on the cloudy Welsh coast may seem an odd choice for a politician turned investor like Robert Hertzberg, who hails from a sunny and environmentally aware state, California, and hobnobs with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

But a commitment by European governments to budding clean-energy entrepreneurs is creating a more welcoming environment than in America, where erratic support and onerous financial rules have given pause to some start-ups and investors.


One of the benefits of not being an ideologue is that President Bush doesn't need to believe in man-made global warming in order to use it as a wedge with which to force American industry to innovate.
