U.S. Energy and Transportation Bills Doom Planet: President Bush to Sign Both Anyway

Oh, I know, the bill also contains some token encouragements for Americans to purchase hybrid vehicles (regardless of their fuel-efficiency ratings), lots of money for energy research (doled out to energy corporations who are earning plenty of money already) and subsidies and requirements for more ethanol production and use (which quite possibly will result in more greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline burning when the factors of production are considered).

The fact of the matter is, however, that the energy bill contains nothing that will result in reductions of greenhouse gas emissions from the U.S. in the short term, and unless we begin to do that now, through energy conservation, transition to a non fossil fuel burning economy in the future will be a mute point. It will be too late.


U.S. Energy and Transportation Bills Doom Planet: President Bush to Sign Both Anyway

President George Bush plans to sign the recently passed national energy bill next week in Albuquerque, New Mexico, setting the table for rapidly increasing global warming throughout the remainder of the century and beyond. The Senate passed the petroleum industry favored energy bill last week by a 74-26 vote, with the House of Representatives passing its version of the bill 275-156.

Sen. Pete Domenici, chairman of the Senate's Energy and Natural Resources Committee, announced Tuesday that Bush will sign the bill Monday, August 8th, at the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories. In a news announcement, Domenici said Bush promised him that if the legislation was passed by Congress, he would sign it in Albuquerque.

The energy bill grew out of an energy task force led by Vice President Dick Cheney, a former energy company executive with Halliburton Company, who refused to disclosed the substance of those discussions to the American people. Read the full article:
