conflict of interests

I think politicians' heads much be in danger of explosion when they're trying to decide whether conserving energy is more important than "protecting" ratepayers from the real cost of power.

So far it looks like pocketbook concerns are winning out over environmental ones in the eyes of taxpayers and their current and prospective representatives.

This blog post has been brought to you by the plethora of god-awful commercials put together by the provincial and federal governments in an attempt to guilt taxpayers into wanting to conserve (but not actually doing anything) that I have to listen to every time I turn on the freaking radio.

Perhaps this post should have been brought to us by all those useful idiots that let the government have the ability to wrongly influence the market in the first place.
