  1. I concur that Now might be the perfect time to introduce an alternative vision of our energy future.

    Comments at the Concord Monitor site are disappointing. Article misses the point of revenue being passed on as dividends to families; key to getting buy-in from the people.

    Rebates to renewable energy users is good idea,. As is charging a tariff on imports. But using the revenue to pay off the deficit? Caused primarily by military expenses, unending wars, and bailouts to the large banks? How about using revenue to subsidize the wind & solar industries instead? Stark needs to refine this bill to get our support.
