I had asked in another post about links to resources which say that power costs will be going up. Does anyone have any links to this?
All I could find was this: http://www.chattanoogan.com/articles/article_144611.asp
But this was for MY area and it says that power rates are actually going DOWN for us (hip, hip hooray! Not like I pay a lot to start with lol).
So does anyone have any sources (reliable, news sources, not propoganda pages) that show that power rates are going to rise?

President Obama's plan to force energy producers to pay for spewing greenhouse gases could cost American consumers an additional $1,437 in utility costs and higher prices at the pump by 2015, according to a new study.
On energy policy, Mr. Obama’s budget will show new revenues by 2012 from his proposal to require companies to buy permits from the government for greenhouse gas emissions above a certain cap. Since companies would pass their costs on to customers, Mr. Obama would have the government use most of the revenues for relief to families to offset higher utility bills and related expenses. (which is the $13.00/week you will begin to receive in April)

When my mother was in school (she is 54) they were telling her that her children would have to live in sealed houses because the air would be so bad. That food we be in pill form because there would be no more resources to plant food in, and so on ....... People have been saying this for decades. And while I don't have a problem with environmentalism at this time, in the middle of an economic crisis, I think we can hold off just a little longer
