  1. Editorial: Green Energy Works Better When Publicly Owned (ClimateCrocks.com)
      "Imagine if ten years ago, instead of paying that $4 trillion dollars to private for-profit utilities, we had bought ownership of a national renewable utility. We could already have in place a 100% green electric company that would be providing our electricity at cost. Which, after recouping the capital expense and upkeep costs, would then be 'selling' our own electricity to us for just about zero."

      "Our new green energy future works very well as a non-profit utility, and doesnít seem to be possible in the for-profit capitalistic system. Not all needed services work in the free enterprise model. Police, Fire departments donít. Sewer and water systems donít."

      "And electric utilities work better when they are publicly owned." 09-13
