I urge everyone to either vote Green or stand for office themselves.

  3. I do not understand your consistent insistence upon ignoring entirely within your calculations the potential that greater energy efficiency offers . Your slide 5 cop out is absurd.

    1. The solutions are increased renewable production and increased efficiency, they are two sides to the same coin and need examining separately and jointly. Slide 5 and 6 show that the viability of renewable production alone, QED if we then add efficiency to the mix the situation improves even further.
