Strange bedfellows for the Planet Earth

Sometimes you have to crawl before you can walk. I don't honestly think the DRIVE act is the total fix we need on America's energy consumption, but it's a step in the right direction, and here it is defended by the National Review, of all things.

But what gets me most about the article is this little justification for domestically-produced alternative fuels:

Imagine if you could pull up to a pump and choose between conventional gas and similarly-priced alternative fuels guaranteed not to fund terrorists. Which would you choose?

THAT was the argument environmentalists were missing. You're either environmental, or you're with the terrorists. Think of other arguments we could make. You either want universal health care, or you're with the terrorists. Perhaps once we have a well-thought out progressive plan, we should develop an alternative argument plan to tie opposition to terrorism...

....Good grief, THIS is how someone goes power-mad, isn't it?
