i disagree. i think they're all for it. from my understanding, our energy grid is outdated and being pushed to its absolute limits right now. nobody wants to pay to upgrade (read: rebuild) it until they absolutely HAVE to. CFCs allow for lowering the amount of energy used. the excess will be eaten up by general market growth and they can still jack up their prices and maintain/increase profit margins.
