I think it's a worthwhile goal. It will take commitment to reach it, though. Somehow I doubt MI is a mecca for solar energy. Might be able to get wave/tide energy from the lakes, though.

It is a really large problem that the entire nation faces. If we put reasonable regulation on coal mining (i.e. don't shear off the tops of mountains), the cost goes up. If we put more regulations on emissions from coal-fired plants, costs go up. Of course, the costs of NOT doing those things are also extremely high, but not nearly as apparent.

And if we have to provide subsidies, I'd much rather provide them for solar power than oil companies (whom we subsidize in numerous ways including military protection and/or wars...very pricey, even before including all the bloodshed).
