Captain Ed looks at the Anne Applebaum piece in the Washington Post this morning and does of course has great insight.
I personally don't think that gas at $3/gal is high enough to make us change our wasteful habits so I'm not worried about the lack of energy. But it is hilarious that the enviromental movement can produce so much hostility toward every source of energy.
In West Virginia, activists saved a strip mine from being disfigured by the sight of windmills, a rare multilayered irony born of hypocrisy.
There are a lot of people in this world and without practicing on a lot of different sources of energy we're going to be up a creek when it's really needed. ANWR should remain as it is. Sitting there waiting and as alternative forms of energy become more affordable we need to try it out. Wind seems to be working pretty well. Get someone to invent the invisible bat/bird shield for the windmills and maybe that will help these objections!
