NEWS: Big Oil in Charge of Energy Study (USA)
Sometimes I just don't get what goes on in the heads of our heads of government! I stare at my computer screen and say "WHAT!" Forgive me I'm not trying to be enigmatic and cryptic although one would think that is the case with the current administration; because I can not possibly begin to understand why the former CEO of ExxonMobil, Lee Raymond, has been hand picked to lead a very influential study that will help develop policy solutions to America's energy crisis!
I'm going to try and leave my very pointed opinions out of this posting but will say I have a hard time believing Mr. Raymond and friends (the National Petroleum Council) will provide a fair and impartial study on the use and benefit of alternative energy. Shawnee Hoover (Exxpose Exxon campaign director) said it best, "What's next? Jack Abramoff appointed to solve corruption?"
Environmental bloggers and other groups are collaborating to get the word out for people to send letters urging Bush's Secretary of Energy to take this very important assignment away from the biased viewpoint of big oil. Here's one blogger's viewpoint: Oil Change International
