Bush's Energy Plan
First, he blames the staff cuts on a "Mix-up". Yet another institutional failure of his executive leadership. Then, we find out that the money was restored just in advance of the speech, an attempt to cover the poop with the carpet obviously.
So, here's the program:
The White House says Bush is providing that leadership. They say he wants to invest more in zero-emission, coal-fired plants, as well as support solar and wind research, promote cars that run on hydrogen, encourage more nuclear power plant construction and fund work to produce ethanol — not just from corn, but from wood chips and switch grass.
Notice what our pResident thinks is an alternative energy policy - INVEST in coal-fired plants, SUPPORT solar and wind, and PROMOTE hydrogen cars. Only one of those words involves any money, and the other two are done with more 'speech-ifying'. OK, granted he also said fund ethanol, but that is only something to mix with oil, not a true alternative fuel - at least not today. And the coal fired plants, even if they are in 'truthiness' zero-emissions, still involve environmental destruction to get the coal.
But here's an idea. San Francisco is investigating the possibility of turning dog poop into methane for power. Fart fermentation to power the city. It's a concept, and with all of the hot air and bullshit Bush emits, maybe HE could power Washington if it could only be captured.
