They'll end up paying twice the difference in bribes to state and local politicians and bureaucrats. Functionaries in India go to sleep DREAMING they lived in Texas. Illinois governors dream that when they get out of prison they'll get elected in Texas.

Please don't bring logic and engineering to the discussion, we're busy blaming liberals and environmentalists for resisting another corporate handout. After all, it's the "envirwackos", not the NIMBY soccer moms and the timid capitalists keeping us from having a shiny nuclear plant on every block. We NEED to be spending public money to "upgrade" privately-owned, already-amortized and obsolete coal plants to inefficiently burn natural gas. It's a Christmas miracle!
