Two choice excerpts:
Republicans shouldn't settle for making the world safe for SUVs. What's going on here is about more than $4 gasoline.
Instead of enviro-messianism, they should propose a drill-to-transition for whatever energy source can prove it works at a nonsacrificial price -- shale, coal gasification, nuclear, solar or some combination. (Windmill farms are a pox on the land.)Via::WSJ, Enviromania
Notice how solar somehow crept into that mix?Laid off autoworkers would probably love one of those 'pox-on-the-land' wind turbine jobs. Assembling Volts might be fine, too. I bet they don't worry too much about messianic enviromaniacs.
On final cite if I may:
Democrats this week chose the prayer of alternative energy over proven prosperity. They've handed prosperity in the here-and-now to the Republicans. Run with it.Wondering how, or what, the next generation will feel about this moment, which was different than any before it.
