Editors note: Without a doubt, we need to follow Germany and move into clean, safe energy for our state that CAN be met with Solar, Hydro: large-scale down to micro, and Wind.  We need to live within our means, reduce our usage and do all we can NOW, while we have the chance.. and carry ‘onward and upward’, as Bill McKibben is noted for saying!
