Let's Get Serious

Charles Krathammer unloads on the President's ridiculous energy proposals in today's Washington Post. Krathammer makes compelling arguments for taxing gas, drilling for oil in the Arctic and outer continental shelf, and increasing use of nuclear power to reduce our reliance on foreign sources of energy. The problem is that all of these solutions have costs, which means that our politicians do not want to talk about them.

Guaranteeing access to energy is a compelling national interest. We need to start acting like we believe that by taking the tough steps necessary to decrease our reliance on foreign energy sources.
