By Daily Breezeial State shouldn't spend billions on a faux-green special interest. Proposition 10, which would fund the development of renewable energy and help consumers purchase alternative-fuel vehicles, has a certain green appeal. And after reading the details, it leaves us feeling green - green as in queasy.

At current oil prices, we will send $700 billion out of the country this year alone; that's four times the annual cost of the Iraq war. ... On a happier note, however, there is a solution to the problem. Alternatives such as wind power and natural gas are readily available to us all. The United States is "the Saudi Arabia of wind power," as the Great Plains states have the greatest wind...

T. Boone Pickens, although very successful at domestic oil production, is now championing wind turbines (see www.pickensplan.com).

The end result will be reduced oil imports. In 1970...
