Clean Energy Plan

Sorry I didn't have a post on Obama's exciting new energy plan: my email inbox and even my Facebook feed were full of articles about it, so I imagine you got an idea that something is going on. I do want to share this nice reflection by NYT pundit Joe Nocera, who talks about how the regulations have before and hopefully will again create jobs. Not that industry will let it go through easily, of course, but eventually....

Another update: some folks are noting that the plan doesn't support nuclear energy, which of course produces no CO2. That will raise the cost of going emission-free while avoiding the production of nuclear waste.
