Hi Don!!
Not only to support you,. but also to share thoughts I have been having
about this very issue...
what do people think about "true cost" accounting, to put a price on
everything, in terms of it's life cycle impact? simple example could be:
to produce X energy produces Y tons of CO2 - to buy land and plant
sufficient trees to take up the CO2 would cost Z - therefore, Z is an
input cost of that energy, which will cost more by a certain amount -
this would almost automatically mean that eco-cool products will cost
less than those with toxic emissions, etc..

thoughts?
