bush's idiocy hurts natural gas

Switch grass. Wood chips. What nonsense. Nuclear's just not happening at all.

Meanwhile, we have the fantastic CEO of Tyson Foods saying point blank that the obsession in ethanol is driving every single foodstuff higher. The whole emphasis is totally fatuous. He is urging other fuels, such as natural gas.

The president in his speech specifically rejected natural gas as expensive. Doesn't he realize that natural gas is a ratio off of oil? Doesn't he know that the pipeline network is being built out, the drilling's begun, the stuff is being produced in record volumes?

I don't think so. Nor does he know the value of conservation and technology and how outfits like Eaton are reining in energy costs and outfits like Halliburton and Baker Hughes are finding natural gas in places we forgot about years ago.

Boggles the mind.
