Re: “Will Oakland's Giant Pot Farms Be Green?

Yes, but: the people planning these huge operations aren't interested in natural light - they want 24x7 high output grow lights. That's why these things will be such an environmental hit. I'm glad to hear that at least one of the prospective big growers plans to have his site LEED certified, because I have zero confidence in the City of Oakland's ability to regulate these things in any meaningful way.

Re: “Cap and Lose?

Oh, and the Markey-Waxman bill - disgraceful loss of will by the Dems, and Obama is NOT holding their feet to the fire. I too agree that we need a carbon tax, and lots of investment in alternatives. But the coal companies will never allow it, and they can block it.

Re: “Cap and Lose?

It sounds like a nice idea but - elevated tracks? After what elevated freeways and rail lines have already done to neighborhoods?? I'd have to see some architects' renderings (since the thing obviously doesn't exist yet) before I agreed that it's a good idea.
