your gubmint hates the earth

though not the first story of its kind, this article from the LA Times epitomizes the nightmare that is dealing with inefficient regulation. rather than re-craft regulatory schemes to aid in releasing the grip Big Oil has on each of us, our overlords are whipping us back into our holes, making sure american entrepreneurship is stifled. if we want to make some movement away from fossil fuels, we need to embiggen our search to include some trial and error.
"Our mentality is to look for the next silver bullet" to replace petroleum, Tamminen said by telephone while driving a car fueled by compressed natural gas. "But there is no silver bullet, only buckshot. We are going to need every one of these silver buckshots to be developed as best it can."

  1. Big Brother can't easily regulate us if we have a lot of diverse energy industries. It wants everything in one basket with an easy handle that the idiot bureaucracy can deal with. And we all know what happens when you put all your eggs in one basket.
