Conservation, Bush Administration Style

The Bush Administration is now saying we all should be conserving (lest we become cartoonish energy gluttons like the Energy Hog). CNB agrees, and thinks the President can start by cutting down on his flights to useless photo-ops. Maybe, just maybe, he could even push Congress to enact fuel economy standards that boost the current standards by 5 or 10 miles per gallon during the next five years.

"Conservation may be a sign of personal virtue, but it is not a sufficient basis for a sound, comprehensive energy policy." Vice President Dick Cheney, July 2001.
