A good article by Jimmy Carter in the Washington Post about “misinformation and scare tactics” coming out of the Bush White House to justify environmental atrocities. Sample:

“No energy crisis exists now that equates in any way with those we faced in 1973 and 1979. World supplies are adequate and reasonably stable, price fluctuations are cyclical, reserves are plentiful, and automobiles aren’t waiting in line at service stations. Exaggerated claims seem designed to promote some long-frustrated ambitions of the oil industry at the expense of environmental quality.”
