Jun 15th 2008 7:37PM @Peter E,Battery capacities are measured in Amp-Hours, just like your electric bill is measured in KW Hours. (@115V, KW hours are really measuring your houses draw in amps). Current is instantaneous coulombs per second so Amps are not a good measure for long running loads.

Jul 9th 2007 12:21PM True, it ends up at an auction, but the difference is how it started and thats why its a better way. It's widely accepted that the problem with the European carbon market is that there was too many credits handed out at the beginning. The emphasis there is "handed out", polluters didn't need to pay at the beginning to get their credits, they got credits by virtue of being polluters. Assuming the auction would start with a proper supply of credits and not too many, the auction would be a one time boon to the American taxpayer (and make this whole idea alot more palatable to the voting public) and the credits would go to the highest bidder. Therefore there is even an incentive to lower your output before the system went into place (so you wouldn't have to buy as many at the onset).

Dec 1st 2006 12:25PM Are you using Vista? Or is that XP with a theme. Either way, I like. Could you please let me know how you got windows to look like that. (Unless the procedure involves right clicking, I use a mac mouse...)
