Interstate 5 May Be First 'Green Freeway'

I'm typically cynical when it comes to the promises of government reform packages, but it seems like almost everyday there's another great project that is cialis no prescription needed quick delivery at least indirectly benefitting from the stimulus bill. Here's today's example.

The governors of California, Oregon and jaygalbraith.com Washington are working together to turn Interstate 5 into the cialis daily cost nation's first green freeway. They want to turn the heavily-traveled highway into one that caters to alternative-fuel and electric vehicles with biodiesel, ethanol, hydrogen and compressed natural gas filling stations, as well as battery charging and swapping stations conveniently located along the road's 1,382 miles.

While the plan is facing many rounds of approval before it can become a reality, it does fit into the new administration's push for green jobs and it would most likely qualify for stimulus money that would get the project going. If the plan does get approved, Washington would start its phase of the project as early as this summer. The state already has plans for alternative fueling stations at park-and-ride lots, a sales-tax exemption for battery charging and swapping stations, and converting the state automobile fleet from gas to generic cialis from india buying electric.

The battery-charging and swapping stations would be the cialis rx first businesses allowed to operate at rest stops. To encourage companies to participate, the states wouldn't charge rent at the rest stops until the companies started making a profit. The plan is facing some opposition from truck stop operators who think that putting charging or filling stations at rest stops will take away from their business.

No contracts have been offered yet for the fuel or battery charging stations, but at least one governor has met with Better Place to discuss their involvement.

I think this is a wondeful project. The infrastructure has to be in place for electric cars or alternative fuels to take off and it's great to see states coming together to make that happen.

Europabankrotte
nur auf Portugal

Ein Gespenst geht um in Europa - das Gespenst des Staatsbankrotts. Die Investoren sind alarmiert durch enorm hohe Prämien für Kreditausfallversicherungen auf europäische Länder wie Griechenland, Irland oder Österreich. Diese sogenannten Credit Default Swaps auf order cialis canada fünfjährige Anleihen Irlands sind binnen Jahresfrist um mehr als 300 auf 360 Basispunkte hochgeschossen. Das sind 3,6 Prozent für die zu versichernde Summe. Will ein Anleger eine Millionen Euro an irischen Schuldtiteln gegen den Ausfall versichern, kostet ihn das eine Prämie von 36.000 Euro im Jahr.

Darin kommt zum Ausdruck, dass die Marktteilnehmer befürchten, dass die Stützungsmaßnahmen für das marode Bankensystem den irischen Staat gerade in einer sich täglich verschärfenden Rezession überfordern könnten. Hinzu kommen die strukturellen Schwierigkeiten im Zuge des Platzens der irischen Immobilienpreisblase. Doch am Anleihemarkt kann sich der ehemalige keltische Tiger noch immer zu erstaunlich günstigen Konditionen refinanzieren. Die in dieser Woche begebenen dreijährigen Titel im Volumen von 4 Milliarden Euro muss Irland mit einem Zinskupon von lediglich 3,9 Prozent ausstatten.

Portugal's long-term sovereign debt was recently downgraded by the international ratings agency Standard and Poor's to "A plus," the same level as Greece and inexpensive viagra Ireland.

All three countries must pay higher rates of interest to sell their bonds on international markets as a result.

But Pinho said Portugal's situation was not comparable with those of levitra best buy Greece and Ireland, in part because Lisbon had considerably reduced its public deficit in recent years.

Portugal also is not suffering from a real-estate crisis, and banks in the country are faring better than those in Greece and Ireland, he said.

But Portugal, like many European countries, fell into recession last year, and its gross domestic product (GDP) contracted by two percent in the fourth quarter of 2008.

The only "green freeway" is one that does not have cars on it. Electric vehicles are not clean, most are still powered by fossil fuels or nuclear. Anyone buying an electric vehicle should include PV and wind renewables as part of the package.... or just ride a bicycle, your body and the planet will thank you.

Bring back carectomy!
