Green Weenies Go Pubbie!!

The Green Weenies are attempting to get (R) support.

Scott Coenen, executive director for the newly formed Wisconsin Conservative Energy Forum, says the group will target Republican lawmakers with educational outreach on the benefits of renewable and alternative energy sources....

Yah, well, maybe.  Coenen claims that windmills and sunshine are almost/nearly/not-quite/really really close to the costs of natgas/coal energy.  Almost/nearly!!  We'll assume that his "cost" figures include the enormous storage batteries which will be needed when there is no wind and/or it's cloudy, or night-time.  We're assuming that because we are nice guys.

Here are the rest of the suspects.  I know they are suspects because Tommy Thompson is on the list.

...Tommy Thompson; former state Rep. Mark Honadel; Matt Neuman, president of Neumann Companies and co-owner of SunVest Solar; Wisconsin Counties Association Outreach Manager Jon Hochkammer; Wisconsin Young Republicans Chairman Jake Margis; Ryan Owens, a UW-Madison professor of political science; and Debbie Crave, vice president of Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese in Waterloo......

Yup.  Tommy "stick-it-to-'em" Thompson, who loves Big Gummint and whose tax-for-Selig routine is still taxing everyone in SE Wisconsin.  Neumann likes solar, so long as HE gets the tax credits, and clearly, so long as he's selling the product.  We'll see about the rest.
