"Green investment" = "lousy investment"?
A project that costs $100 million (though I'd guess this number probably doesn't include the land costs) to save almost $1 million a year? There's a name for that—a lousy investment.-- from "Touting Failure" by Russell Roberts at http://www.cafehayek.com/hayek/2009/05/touting-failure.html.
And why are so many Americans and politicians worried about our "dependence" on foreign oil when no one seems to be worried about our "dependence" on, say, foreign coffee? Can you imagine what would happen to the U. S. economy if the Organization of Coffee Exporting Countries ("OCEC") imposed a coffee embargo on the U. S.? Industry, academia, and government would "grind" to a halt! (Well, if government ground to a halt, that wouldn't be so bad!)
