Environmentalists UNTIE!

BUT FIRST: Something to think about in the energy debate...

DVR/TIVO Modern Marvels: SECRETS OF OIL
Airs on Saturday August 23 07:00 PM ET

Did you know that if we stopped driving our cars tomorrow, America would still need five million barrels of oil a day? Rubber, Plastic, Nylon, Aerosols, Resins, Solvents, and Lubricants - none can exist without oil.


I swear that Environmentalists are dyslexic. If it's not one thing with the Democrat Left it's another.

Two stories caught my attention. The need to build wind farms is running into hurdles. New transmission lines need to be built to get the the power from the wind farms to the city. And it ain't cheap.

In Indiana alone it will cost $1 billion dollars - and take at least 6 years to go through all the regulatory red tape. Think Obama, who complains about time spent on exploring and drilling for oil, is going bitch about how long it will take to get wind farm energy to the cities?

As far as time - I'm not sure if they're even counting the environmentalists and the NIMBYs (Not In My BackYard) people thrown into the mix.

The cars of the future are running into the American Left also. Hybrids, electric, hydrogen cars are now under attack - they're too quiet! Shh! The elderly and the blind are almost getting run over because the cars are too quiet. California is thinking about making them more "noisy" - for our own good of course.

The American Left. It's always something. Why do have this feeling the American Left's symbol should be a crib and a diaper?
