    GE’s just hedging its bet. The rent seeking green technology that they’ve hitched their ride with this administration is looking to be winding down, no matter the wishes of the greens and the folks running Energy Department. At some point, you actually have to make something to make money, instead of just getting government grants and tax breaks.

    “This is good news for the environment: Bigger companies bring more resources to the table, and a desire to protect their brands. They’re less likely to cut corners, as the potential fallout of a drilling accident is much more dangerous to a company with a global image to protect.”

    Hmmm. I seem to recall a big oil company (formerly known as British Petroleum) earning themselves a reputation for cutting corners which caught up with them (at our expense) in the Gulf of Mexico a few years back.
