Oh, spare us the large-scale transformations.

- Stressing the need for a “clean-energy future,” Obama said the country must bear the cost of a large-scale energy transformation. “We can’t afford not to change how we produce and use energy, because the long-term costs to our economy, our national security, and our environment are far greater," he said.
This is typical central planning blather: "We just need to force more people to march in step with our grand vision." That has been failing since the Wilson administration. When someone can build a car and a fuel distribution system that works better than what we have now, it won't need government help. The government couldn't stop it. If the central planning model worked, we'd all be handling punch cards, and the computers would all still be mainframes.
