Good call Dallas. I read a poll by Readers Digest that showed more "Conservatives" actually own Hybrids, have Solar and other Alternate energy sources in use. Like they say, Don't judge a book by it's Political ideology.
Look, there ain't nothin' fancy going on here, really. Coal is much more likely to be obtained, stored and used, and ash handled and disposed, in more rural areas than in more urban areas. And we all know the associated political demographics.
What's interesting to me is the stoker v. hand-fired breakdown, which I would have expected to be otherwise among Dems. But maybe it's an indication that Dems are just starting to discover coal.
