Why are Americans so reluctant to use our ingenuity and creativity to simply find better ways to make energy? We used to be the smartest people on Earth. Now Americans are plain stupid. We do the dumbest things, we look for the lazy, easy way out.
Global warming will drive hundreds of species to extinction. Drilling will exacerbate global warming. Using more oil exacerbates global warming. Bush is wrong. He's been wrong for 8 years, he's wrong on drilling too.
20 years ago Jim Hansen predicted extreme weather, melting ice caps, flooded coastal cities, mass extinction of species. Fast forward to 2008 and we see all these things happening before our eyes. Ice shelves collapsing, strange earthquakes, historic floods, massive hurricanes and typhoons. Yet Americans want to drill for more oil and burn more CO2 into the atmosphere. How dumb can we get? When you have a leader as dumb and stupid as Bush, you get dumb followers like the American people.
Pass legislation to develop better solar and wind energy.
