Thu, 22:19: Video: Scientists continue developing alternative energy sources for Americans to waste. http://t.co/Yxvh9j26bl

*sigh* they blew it from the start by obviously not knowing the difference between energy *production* technologies and energy *storage* technologies.

Battery powered cars and hydrogen powered *anything* are energy *storage* tech. The energy they use had to be put into the batteries (or used to create hydrogen) after being generated by some other means.

So while their attempt at parody tries to make semi-valid point, their lack of understanding of the topic pretty much overwhelms it.

Also, while it's not as bad as CO2, H2O is also a greenhouse gas.

Hey, they know that stress is really bad for you. And that a number of almost ubiquitous practice at most jobs really stress workers out.

Do you see anybody trying to force employers to reduce stress to reasonable levels?

I figure that at some point it will take a bunch of class action lawsuits to get this shit fixed.

BTW, if we ever get "single payer" health care *they* would be in a position to sue.

Come to think of it, maybe somebody should try getting across to the insurance companies that fixing these problems would reduce costs.

There are precedents for insurance companies helping change things by telling employers that if they kept doing X, they their share of the insurance premiums would go up.
