I don't know what a "...tipping point..." looks like exactly. E.G. we all know what happened in the 60's and 70's when Japanese cars showed up en masse and "..tipping pointed" GM and others down a long slide. But could I have said at what point that happened? Was it when I saw my first Toyota in Pacific Grove in 1968? When I bought one in 1978? When their stock went through the roof in recognition?

Anyway, here's a clue that something big is happening in alternate energies and it foretells, I think, a real dogfight...

This isn't new news, but in context seems important...

Power companies scuttling legislation which would have allowed net metering...

On a related matter Hawaii Electric is pulling their hair about what to with surplus energy being return to them...

Interesting times...
