The right response to Obama’s Keystone XL killing

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.

  1. The fact is, those technologies are not ready. Fossil fuels are it for now. They should continue to develop ALL alternative fuels in the Private sector. Keep the corrupt gov’t out.

  2. Sad that energy policy has become a question of ideologies first. But there Bill Clintion was on Jon Stewart preaching that we are far behind on jobs becaue we aren’t emulating Germany’s approach to solar energy and creating all those solar energy jobs. The audience of the smart, young and ideologically pure. /gagmewithaspoon

  3. Some Malthusians are so dedicated to the cause that they advocate policies which create the very conditions they’re fond of warning about.

  4. “it should be clear that an energy war has been declared by Democrats.”

    They have been carrying it on for 40 years.
