We suggest tit-for-tat.
In response to president Obama’s decision to effectively kill the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline — as well the rest of his war against fossil fuels — House Republicans should:
- Zero-out federal funding for all so-called “clean energy” projects;
- Put the wind and solar guys on notice that when their production tax credit — i.e., the only reason their industries exist — expires in 2012, there won’t be any more subsidies until the war on fossil fuels stops.
Between yesterday’s Keystone XL killing and the demagogued-to-death Senate effort to roll back the EPA’ Cross-State Air Pollution rule, it should be clear that an energy war has been declared by Democrats.
Republicans need to respond in kind — that goes for the GOP presidential candidates, too.
