What Do YOU Suggest We Do, Then...?

Well, honestly. It seems as if we're damned if we do, and damned if we don't. Jesse Ausubel, the scientist from Rockefeller University who conducted this study, says that to build facilities for renewable energy sources would damage the environment because of all the land that we'd have to "rape." (And why do all environmentalists talk like Buffy Sainte-Marie? I like her, too, but really...is there a special "dogma-speak" class that these people have to take in order to get their Ph.D.s?)

Other scientists aren't as dire in their estimations of land grab. Ausubel says that the most environmentally-friendly alternative is nuclear energy, because it leaves behind no waste. Like the mafia--kill but don't leave any evidence!

I realize that nuclear energy IS efficient compared to the fossil fuels that we've been burning, but it DOES leave behind waste. Ask the folks at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Love Canal...

It is like the big Oil Companies saying they can't build more refineries because nobody wants them in their area. They never asked my county which is hurting for jobs. No they don't want any more refineries because there just might be enough oil and gas so that the price would...(gasp) go down.
