No, Arnold, No! Bad Arnold!

As most trends begin in California (e.g. jams, pocket sized dogs with fancy clothes, gangsta rap, etc.), this article has me a wee bit worried. It is starting to become apparent that the environment will once again be put on the back burner because of the antiquated disconnect that some individuals with power have between sustainability and profitability. The need for scalable renewable energy and a very visible project that is both sustainable and profitable (hey GM, are you listening?) is becoming more and more apparent.

On a separate note, I was able to finally catch up on some DVR this weekend and watched a 60 minutes episode from last weekend (along with some Desperate Housewives, we all have our shameful secrets). It was in regards to the price of oil and what influenced the tremendous spikes over the course of 2008. While I was happy to see the price go up for renewable energy's sake, the cause was quite disconcerting. Can you say needed regulation?
