The beanSTOCKd Project


Go EFFING Vote! by Bacon Bits

After, of course, you’ve enjoyed some of our hilarity.

A while back we wrote about a new type of coal burning power plant that was able to sequester carbon and bury it safely underground. Construction was about to break ground in Illinois, but it’s not happening anymore.

“Too expensive.” Classic, Dubya! His Department of Energy put the kibosh on the project because new estimates put the price tag at $1.8 billion—up from $1.3 billion. Please, that’s not even a day in Iraq.

Baby steps. That’s kind of how we view this project—symbolic in so many ways. Think about the first time you tried to make brownies. They probably weren’t as good as Padma’s, but they were okay and somewhat effective nonetheless. The second time around? You were a pro. Just some food for thought (the power plant you wastoids) before you hit the polls.
