President Obama said today,
“We’ve seen enough. We can remain the world’s leading importer of foreign oil, or we can become the world’s leading exporter of renewable energy.”
Three points in response to Obama’s green-tinted America-bashing:
- Who around the world (except U.S. taxpayers) can afford to subsidize economically inefficient renewables like solar and wind technologies?
- Maybe we wouldn’t need to import so much oil if only the greens would let us drill.
- We may be the leading importer of foreign oil, but we do the most with that oil. We are the most productive country in history.
