Bearing Down on Energy Policy

by William Yeatman on May 15, 2008

Terry Corcoran of the National Post has a good column (when has he ever had a bad one?) up today on what the polar bear listing means for North American energy policy:

“Between environmentalists and state planners and controllers, plus animosity toward the energy industry, keeping a lid on supply is the name of the game in energy these days. Pathetically, the Bush administration's polar bear release hailed the government's wind and solar energy strategy as the alternative.”

Quite right. This was nothing to do with the polar bear and everything to do with advancing a ludicrous "alternative energy now" agenda. Meanwhile, I have further reflections over at The American Spectator.
