I think that it would be possible for me to mobilise the necessary people and companies for such a project, but I need to be able to show that we can put enough equity on the table to be taken seriously.
I explain below how things could move forward. So please take the poll – and please answer honestly about the kind of money you would SERIOUSLY consider investing in such a project; Please also recommend so that this gets as much exposure as possible.
Since I’ve bitched about the lack of environmental discussion occuring on the big political blogs, I certainly want to promote Jerome’s efforts. This could be a major means of expanding the discussion of renewable energy in the political blogosphere. If you’ve got information on the potential for such an undertaking, leave Jerome a comment. And, I’ll be honest — I don’t spend a lot of time on DK, and am having a hell of a time finding Jerome’s email address. If anyone can help me, I’d appreciate it…
