Don, you trust the science and scientists that enable your computer, phone, internet, car, house, and the weather forecast, which is far more accurate than when we were kids, etc. Why do you distrust climate science? It's simple: if you understood the bleak future your actions are "driving" us towards (scientists use "forcing") you'd have to change your life and you're too comfy and old to do so. Or, maybe you're one of the minions who are paid to rehash this trash. "It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it." – Upton Sinclair

Jared is highly experimental with his looks. He once sported a "faux-hawk" -a fake Mohawk haircut.

The REASON we HAVE a grid is to constantly distribute energy so we DON'T need much storage. "Available online at http://www.civilsocietyinstitute.org/synapserepor... the new study finds that, in the envisioned 2050 with a heavy reliance on renewables, regional electricity generation supply could meet or exceed demand in 99.4 percent of hours, with load being met without imports from other regions and without turning to reserve storage. In addition, surplus power would be available to export in 8.6 percent of all hours, providing an ample safety net where needed from one region of the U.S. to the next." http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/report--u...

Looking at it from Hawaii, everything looks murky in the Benighted States of 'Murka. Isn't that how our penultimate President pronounced it?

Council COULD put it on the ballot as a referendum. Or, it can be forced onto the ballot as an initiative. That takes a few thousand signatures and a good lawyer to draw up the text...

The real solution is to keep moving to more and more "direct" democracy. It's through ballot initiatives that MOST progress is made in this country, from women's suffrage (passed by voters in 13 states before Congress went along) to Sunshine laws to medical and now recreational marijuana. Here are the Boulder examples: http://spryeye.blogspot.com/2013/10/ballot-initai... Recent Colorado examples: http://spryeye.blogspot.com/2012/01/case-for-ball...
