House Bill Offers Incentives for Renewable Energy

H.R. 2776 passed the house and its major provisions are:

Repeals the generous tax breaks enjoyed by Oil and Gas companies (why not coal?)

Provides grants and loans so that samll communities can trade in less energy efficient appliances etc for more efficient models.

Renewable energy tax incentives.

Ah, hell, just read the article.  But know Dear Leader has threatened a Veto because he says it puts too much of a tax burden on Oil and Gas companies (ya know, the billionaires), how quaint!  Thanks for selling out the future of your country nimrod…

  1. Seems like this was discussed back on the 6th somewhere on this blog. No matter, it is important and should be discussed further beginning with the fact that the veto threat was totally predictable. Our national course has been set and we have decided to go a different route. a resource war to get the remaining oil of which 2/3s reside in that region of the world where we are fighting the Iraq war. remember big dick told us in 2002 that “the American life style is nonnegotiable.” Reliance on renewable forms of energy, sunlight, hydro, etc. just ain’t going to happen in an America where avarice is the very foundation of governance and economic strategy. but then the laws of thermo dynamics just may have something to say about the matter. “Resistance to change is the source of all pain.” (one of the eastern muses)

  2. I might have missed that earlier post but you’re right, we need to keep pouncing on this and keep pushing it if we want anything to change at all. But yes, it probably is futile…
