"...The plant's billion-dollar price tag "is very comparable to the same amount of electricity from a modern natural gas plant based on today's prices," said Mayor Will Wynn via e-mail. "The difference is, this energy is a hedge against the wild spikes of the gas market." Plus, "it's carbon-neutral, so the cost isn't going to climb when federal climate legislation passes in the next year or two, driving up the cost of coal and natural gas (legislation both Presidential candidates have said they'll sign)..."

"...The author lends some authority to his views by citing Lao Tzu, author of the Tao Te Ching, who unfortunately died 1,200 years before the arrival of the phenomenon of sustained growth in living standards. But let's ask ourselves what Tzu would think about capitalism in China if he were alive today? Wouldn't he look at the experience of his country over the last 70 years and determine that the reliance on sharing wealth rather than creating wealth does not work? Wouldn't he conclude based on China's experience and on the experience of their neighbors like India and North Korea that economic growth fueled by capitalism and free markets is obviously the best long-term answer to poverty, disease, and environmental damage? He might also point out how well-intentioned, anti-capitalists like our author do more real harm to impoverished people of the world than any injustice capitalism or free markets inflict...."

"..."If only the tax-and-spend Democrats weren't stymieing the Bush administration's efforts, taxes could be even more drastically cut.

For "balance," the YCTers included economics professor and free-market champion Steve Bronars, and were even nice enough to say that economics professor and "former 1960s and Seventies Marxist radical" Harry Cleaver, who is on the watch list, is also "a great lecturer and well informed." Journalism professor and peace activist Robert Jensen topped the list: He "introduces the unsuspecting student to a crash course in socialism, white privilege, the 'truth' about the Persian Gulf War, and the role of America as the world's prominent sponsor of terrorism."
