BANANA*

I seriously believe that Obama, Pelosi, and Reid have entered into an energy suicide pact for America.

First, drilling our known oil reserves is forbidden.

Coal, oil and natural gas fired electricity cannot be expanded (they emit CO2, you know).

Windmills are good, except near Teddy's place or any other Blue State location.

Barack says corn based ethanol from his friends at ADM is okay, too (but not the more abundant and more efficiently produced sugar based ethanol). Of course, replacing more than 20% of U.S. petroleum with corn-eth is impossible, even in perfect growing conditions.

Today NEI Nuclear Notes reported Obama's position on new (CO2-free) nuclear construction.
"In fact, it makes about as much sense as his proposal to build 45 new nuclear reactors without a plan to store the waste some place other than right here at Yucca Mountain."
Which is his way of saying "No Nukes!" By the way, it is Mr. Obama and his party who are blocking the opening of Yucca Mountain.

Other than that, we are supposed to wait for a breakthrough in matter-antimatter technology.


*BANANA - Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything
