Coal? Coal?

He announced his alternative energy policy the day before the press conference. It's coal. That's his new technology to replace fossil fuels. Coal. Coal? Coal? Am I mad or does that sound like a poor idea to anyone else? Robert Kennedy Jr was on Maher the other day. He claims that if you raise the fuel efficiency standards by 7.6 miles per gallon, you eliminate the dependence on foreign oil. But coal? Coal???

Dividends for the Investors in BushCo

Just tending to the interests of his corporate sponsors. A number of the Big Oil corporations also own coal companies--they're in the Energy Biz. Presumably, an energy policy that allocates more public resources to coal extraction (directly or indirectly) won't disrupt any existing ownership structure.

But it's not exactly a renewable source of energy, is it?

Jon Stewart had a good bit on "The Daily Show" the other night, with CNN footage of Bush at SBA talking about "technology is the ticket." Immediately after he made that short-sighted claim, CNN lost its satellite feed. The startled anchor stumbled through a summary that repeated the point about how we should all count on technology to solve our problems. Stewart dubbed CNN an "Irony Free Zone."

But we'll be in great shape, as soon as we all get our hydrogen-powered gyrocopters.

Clean Coal is a Lie

  They have become much better at cutting down on fly ash during the burning of coal but they are still destroying West Virginia and Kentucky to get it.  Harper's had a great article on this last month.

Foreign Oil

There is no way we will ever stop importing oil.  Actually, Saudi Arabia is the only country from the Middle East that ranks in the top five for US imports.  We bring in as much oil from Canada and Mexico individually as we do from Saudi Arabia.  Alberta, Canada can now qualify as the second oil richest country in the world.  Once they begin exploration in Saskatchewan, we may be able to boot Saudi Arabia completely.
