Reader comment on: Moving Beyond "Drill, Baby, Drill"

Submitted by Alan Carpien (United States), Dec 7, 2010 11:46

I would recommend that the JPC reconsider endorsing articles of the type represented by this group of supposedly Republican environmentalists. The group seems more like a bunch of Democrats. I would suggest focussing on real free market environmental groups like the Property and Environmental Research Center (PERC) in Bozeman, Montana, or the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) in D.C..

Other than a hand-waving at nuclear energy (which Democrats are beginning to endorse), this sounds more like the "progressive" agenda. The thrust of the article is to pick the winners and losers in a transition away from dependence on fossil fuels. The "cap and tax" issue is simply brushed aside, and there is no mention of how expensive Europe is finding the "transition" to the "green" economy -- and how some nations are beginning to abandon it. Calling a rash of government regulation a "market" approach is double-dealing at best. The criticism of "partisanship" is straight out of the Democratic Party handbook. Where is the real "conservative" position?
