Well, not exactly.

I might agree with this comment to this Froma Harrop column:

It certainly seems like the radical environmentalists would rather keep our nation’s soldiers killing and being killed protecting Middle East oil, when the oil can safely come from Canada or the US – requiring no soldier’s protection at all.

…but for the fact that I don’t think the radical environmentalists want that so much as they want everyone to:

A. live in caves and huts and walk everywhere; or,

B. die.

I can’t speak for Froma Harrop, but it’s no big secret that a lot of people are big fans of mass transit and people being taxed (or otherwise coerced) into using it. Just exactly where do they think the fuel for those buses is going to come from?

    Compressed natural gas, like I believe the Route 17 runs on.

    CNG, though cleaner, is still a fossil fuel.

      Very true, but I doubt many folks have thought that far. Most people don’t seem to realize that manufacturing a given “green” product uses resources, after all.

      • Albatross Says:

        True dat. I’ve also heard that recycling certain products takes more energy than manufacturing them anew, so the recycling thereof actually leads to more usage of resources. Paper falls into this category, I believe.

    I thought all mass transit systems ran on unicorn farts.
