Brace yourself.

There’s almost nothing in here about President Barack Obama’s inauguration or his speech or the parade.

This one is about Alaska’s Republican Gov. Sarah Palin, the unsuccessful GOP candidate for vice president, what, two years ago, it seems.

Anyway, our colleague Margot Roosevelt, over at the Greenspace blog, reports that Palin has just unveiled a statewide green energy plan. It would do even more than California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 33% renewable electricity plan by 2020.

Palin’s new plan would get the utilities in oil-rich Alaska to produce 50% of their power through renewable sources. She’ll introduce the legislation during the current legislative session, she says. (Obama, btw, has suggested 25% by 2025.) Margot’s got the new Alaskan details.
