Free Markets May Be the Ticket to a Clean Energy Revolution

Libertarian think tanks teamed up with big-name enviros to oppose the 
huge Bush energy bill that stalled out in Congress in November.  But 
wait -- one group's from Venus, the other's from Mars ... what gives? 
The answer, says journalist Vijay Vaitheeswaran, is that both camps 
want clean, renewable energy sources to compete on a level market 
playing field rather than go up against fossil-fuel industries 
bloated on massive government subsidies.  Vaitheeswaran, who writes 
for The Economist, is an enthusiast about clean-energy technologies 
and the power of market-based solutions to environmental problems. 
He makes a good case, says Michelle Nijhuis in her review of his new 
book "Power to the People" -- only on the Grist Magazine website.
