Its a 3 dollar fee! Thirty six bucks a year!Are these net metinerg people ignorant?Surely, SDGE sells each kilowatt for more then it costs them to produce it.The difference supports such things as line maintenance, power plant maintenance, billing services, employee compensation, etc. net metinerg' is just a stealth subsidyDo grocery stores sell apples for the same price they purchase them for?


Lots of things you can do to be more Green can save you money, and I do here other ppleoe say that you can save money by living green. Well, everybody knows about the light bulbs now, the CFLs (Compact fluorescent lights). They cost two-three times more than the old bulbs but last Five, or more, times longer AND use less wattage but are just as bright. Being more green can be just saving electricity. You can just cut back or better yet get better, or more, insulation for your home so that your air doesn't run as much but you stay just as cool or warm. I don't expect anyone, including myself, to go completely green but there are some that won't even do the things to help themselves and their families just because someone calls it being environmentally friendly . Those ppleoe are just stubborn and think Oh they are hippies , and that Is being stupid.


Because we get sick of people deynnig the truth in order to save themselves hassle. It gets fairly frustrating to talk to someone and tell them the world is dying and see that they don't care. Sometimes we get carried away because it is so hard to see people ignoring reality and hoping it will go away when every second we wait means it might be too late to balance the climate again. These people are going to regret their actions in twenty years but by then it will be too late.If I talk about global climate change (not warming, since some places will actually get colder or just go into a 50-year drought or just have 50 more inches of rain a year) I don't usually do the gloom talk or call people idiots-although I may think it . I've realized that people are inherently selfish and so I do tell people it's cheaper or easier. Of course it's cheaper to put in a few solar panels and not buy electricity for forever. It's cheaper to wash a few dish cloths rather than constantly buy paper towels. They even pay you to take recyclables back. People don't listen though. They want to believe what they want to believe and will find every way possible of ignoring anything that isn't their version of truth.

I have long been concerned about centralized power and the intrusion of the federal government into the historic responsibilities of local government. There are areas that require a national norm but that still leaves plenty of room for local initiative. In fact, the Clean Air Act (a federal law) makes provision for California to set auto emission standards which other states may then follow. Congress rarely considers leaving local governments in charge. For example, many states have enacted medicinal marijuana laws that the federal government refuses to respect. In the field of criminal law, many local crimes are copied by congress so that federal authorities get a duplicate set of rules to enforce. The federal No Child Left Behind Law puts the federal government into every classroom in the country. As the founder of two charter schools, I can testify to the unreasonable burdens that the national government is imposing on schools.
