An Earth Day Note

April 22, 2007

Blonde Sagacity notes:

I thought on this Earth Day 2007 I would address the much-touted hatred of the Earth and environment by the maniacal, and yet somehow still stupid, George W. Bush. The left is always saying how Bush turns his back on anything Green because he’s an oil man from an oil state with lots of oil-rich donors, but is that really the case? Let’s look to historical facts and an article written by a Bush-hater for the answer…

We already know that Bush’s home in Crawford, Texas is WAY more earth-friendly than Al Gore’s mansion, but what we may not know is that Bush was the brains behind the WIND ENERGY success in Texas…in 1996. YEARS before AL Gore decided to tell us his Inconvenient Truths.

Would this be the same Wind Energy that Teddy Kennedy didn’t want near his home because saving the environment wasn’t aesthetically pleasing enough for him?

An oil-rich state that produces more wind-energy than other state…and initiated by none other than, enemy of the left, George W. Bush. Hmmm, why haven’t we read about this over at HuffPo?

Read the whole thing.

Grow your own power.

Wired has a good article on average folks setting up small wind and solar generation stations.
They are not off the grid, but they use a lot less power from the grid, and during times surplus, put power on the grid.

Not everything the Governator does is evil, no matter how much you want it to be.
As the Wired article points out:

California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently proposed additional subsidies and tax credits to cover a million California rooftops with solar panels.

To meet his Hydrogen Highway proposal though, California is going to need more nuclear power plants.
