In the spirit of 'going green,' and understanding that it may take sacrifices to get there, we have the following proposal for the Green Fans.
THEY get to re-charge their cars and run their houses on windmill and sun-catcher electricity. (They may use the mass-storage batteries, too. All of them. Every single one!!)
WE will confine ourselves to carbon-based fuels for the same tasks.
Fair, no? They get the electricity of their dreams. We'll trudge along with dirty-power, hanging our heads in shame forever.
Clearly the worst fate is ours because the optics are all wrong for us. And we all know that optics count.
