The Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative purports to limit so-called greenhouse gases from all kinds of potential pollutant-producers—everything and everyone from power generating facilities to transportation, both private corporations and public entities. The RGGI website claims that all “proceeds” will be invested in “consumer benefits” including energy efficiency (CFLs and LED lights: oh, those light sources where you strike a match to see if they came on or not), renewable energy (those wind power-generating windmills dotting the landscape along the Atlantic coast and the Columbia river gorge in Oregon/Washington that are not turning even when the wind is blowing to name a couple of locations), and other clean energy technologies (like solar power? One huge panel that can generate 45 watts when the sun does shine in, say, places like the Pacific Northwest generating enough temporary power to run the light bulb in the refrigerator if you don’t hold the door open any longer than required to find the mustard) and other similarly “useful” technologies that hold a place in government’s heart.
