The Best Energy Policy? None
John Sununu, Boston Globe
NOW FOR some good news: Over the past four years, every high-profile energy policy championed by the Obama administration has failed. The “clean” coal promised during his first campaign? Sent back to the primordial swamps from whence it came. Five million green jobs? Never happened. Electric cars? Sales have faltered for the over-hyped and over-subsidized Chevy Volt, causing GM to shutter the plant for weeks at a time. And don’t get me started on the billions taxpayers lost on bankrupt firms like Solyndra, A123, and Evergreen Solar.
