Re: Bullfrog Power -- an interesting concept

Maybe a bit like buying carbon offsets
This is what Al Gore does.
Al Gore uses the MOST gas/electric for any residential property in his home state (well, the least I heard anyway).
Al Gore is very rich. So he can afford this.
However, I feel that buying carbon offset is a load of BS because it doesn't do a hell of a lot at actually protecting your environment.
I'd rather see people being more energy misers than buy their right to pollute. IMO.
Now I am not saying what the company itself is doing is wrong or dishonest, as that is not the case. I just don't like the idea of elitists using this as an excuse to have a massive carbon footprint. (and believe me, guys like Susuki and Gore have a massive carbon footprint due to their travels and massive use of energy at home)
