Gem of the day

In a nutshell: why the totally broken, circular energy debate in America mirrors the global energy debate.

Mayor Bloomberg of New York positions natural gas as America's future (via Washington Post):

"The production of shale gas through fracking is the most significant development in the U.S. energy sector in generations...the hydraulic fracturing of shale rock that, together with horizontal drilling, unleashes abundant natural gas."

The global climate change legislation under debate in 2009 positions clean energy as America's future (via C-Span):

"This bill moves us towards a clean energy future...American innovation can unleash abundant clean energy resources and protect our national security."
