To Conserve Gas, President Calls for Less Driving - New York Times
That's right, kids. The President wants us to conserve gas. And not becasue global climate change caused by our irresponsible energy use probably leads to outrageous weather. Not even because it's our responsibility as global citizens to try and curb our own destructive behavior. No, not for any of these reasons. Why, then, should we avoid unneccesary driving? to save our economy.
Now, I'm in general a fan of more people having money, but this seems so backward and selfish when there are concerns that involve all the citizens of earth for the rest of time (at least until the New Earth) which the Bush administration doesn't seem to care about. After all, we don't want to disrupt an "american way of life."
I normally try and avoid political rants on this blog, since it rarely leads to enlightening discussion, but I had to point this out.
