Bush Promises Another Broken Promise on Energy
President Bush is slated to promise extensive greening of the US energy market in his State of the Union tonight. Sez the Washington Post:
Under Bush's plan, which the White House has dubbed "Twenty in Ten," three-quarters of the reduction in consumption would come by increasing the mandated use of ethanol and other alternatives to oil. The federal government would require that 35 billion gallons of renewable and alternative fuels be used annually by 2017, nearly five times the 7.5 billion gallon mandate now set for 2012. The aim is to displace 15 percent of projected annual gasoline use in 2017.
Here we go, 2 more years of 'studying' the matter only to be told Global Warming is a scientific hoax. Good strategy though, W. Focus on Green Energy, detract attention from the Green Zone.
