Because California is building a huge solar energy generation facility in the Mojave Desert and I'm tired of always having to follow their lead. Now that I've lightened the mood a bit here's the real reason: President Carter started our country on the path to reducing our energy consumption and exploring alternative/renewable energy sources way back in l977. Then President/Actor Reagan came along and, as with far too many conservatives, set us back to the point where we have now lost 36 years of research and progress toward improving our environment and our energy sources. Once again we are finding the very same small thinking coming from our current conservative Ohio politicians. Oh, when will they ever learn...when will they ever learn?
