Seven year crusade to raise fuel economy standards pays off for Rep. Markey

“Along with increased fuel economy, the bill marks a new path forward on renewable fuels like ethanol and renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. It requires utilities to provide at least 15 percent of their electricity from renewable resources by 2020. By 2022, billions of gallons of ethanol will flow through America’s new, more efficient engines, and wind turbines and solar cells will use nature to power our economy, instead of letting dirty power alter nature,” said Markey.

If the power is so dirty, shouldn’t one abjure it? Completely? Right now?
