Michigan has a proposal for the Nov. election that would require 25% of energy production to be from "renewables" (wind, solar)

The concept sounds like one I want. I'd like to see mankind figure out how to rely on renewable energy, in my lifetime.

There are of course opponents of the proposal who say it will cost taxpayers too much money, and that the drafters don't even have a plan on how to reach the 25% on 2025.

You know, on warm sunny days we can see a yellowish hue, a haze as it were, above the horizon. It's pollution, or ozone, or what have you. I believe we are poisoning ourselves and the planet.

I don't know, what do some of you think?
