BECAUSE IT’S NOT AS IF WE NEED MORE ENERGY: U.S. Halts Solar Projects Over Environment Fears.
Okay: Nukes are out, coal is filthy, wind power destroys Ted Kennedy’s view, and solar leads to “environment fears.” Do they just want us all to freeze in the dark? Pretty much, I’d say . . . .
(Via Sonic Frog). Seems like this would be a good campaign issue for somebody . . . .
UPDATE: Reader Robert Schwartz emails:
Whatever happened to the Democrats? It used to be that their sole criterion for evaluating proposals was how many blue collar jobs they would create. Oil drilling and nuclear power would have been no brainers as both activities require millions of man hours of labor, real blue collar, sweaty, dirty labor. These days Democrats seem to care more about beachfront property values than workerâ€™s jobs.
Yes, the Democrats have become the party of the upper-crust now.
