The Environmentalist Take on the Blackout
By Paul Blair
The environmentalist take on the blackout? We're hearing it everywhere: "It was a transmission problem, not a supply problem."
Which means: The supply problem should be addressed only after it too becomes a crisis.
Environmentalists have worked for thirty years to destroy every prospect for cheap, plentiful energy. Now they would have us ignore the inevitable consequences of their policies and do nothing--until it's too late. From such range-of-the-moment mentalities are blackouts born.
