Interesting energy news from NY's top elected officials yesterday:
1) AG and gubernatorial heir apparent Elliot Spitzer laid out a campaign energy policy calling for funding for low-income residents and businesses to make their buildings more energy efficient, and called for a complete audit of New York's energy use; and
2) Times' columnist Maureen Dowd noted that Hillary "Ozone Woman" Clinton gave a "wonkish speech" on cellulostic ethanol, low sulfur diesel, biomass liquid fuel bases, "feebate" tax incentives, CO2 sequestration, hybrids, RPS, continuous reheat furnances, Brazilian ethanol, Danish windpower and Kyoto targets ("and you thought she was incomprehensible on health care.")
And no less than three out of four op-eds today in the NY Times, plus a whole stack of letters to the editor, related to global warming and renewables. Favorite quote from K.R. Sridhar in Thomas Friedman's column: "It's time for government to use its buying power when buying power."
