    Texas could soon be in a position to turn the lights off on a federal plan to phase out certain light bulbs. State lawmakers have passed a bill that allows Texans to skirt federal efforts to promote more efficient light bulbs, which ultimately pushes the swirled, compact fluorescent bulbs over the 100-watt incandescent bulbs many grew up with.

    Does the "Green" label on a product impact your buying decision? Yes, I actively seek out only those products with "Green" labels.

    Van Jones in February 2009, just before he was appointed the "Green Jobs" Czar gave this talk at Berkley. It is clear that he is selling the idea of hitching the destruction of Capitalism to taking a "Green" approach to the "System." Its a little under 5 minutes. Watch and understand why Glen has kept hammering on the question of why is this guy an adviser to the President? Amazing.
