Mitt Romney’s Energy Plan Is Marinated in Crazy Sauce
Ugh. That’s about the only audible response that I could muster after reading through Mitt Romney’s energy plan, which he finally released after getting winks, nods of approval, and campaign donations in the millions from fossil fuel company CEOs. I know that it’s hard to believe, but Romney’s positions on energy are even worse than those of George W. Bush, who was at least willing to firmly link climate change to human activity.
Romney’s plan reads like a wish list for Big Oil and Coal. More drilling? You got it. A weakened EPA to push back on polluters? Word. More fracking? You don’t have to ask me twice. But most galling is Romney’s refusal to mention the words “climate change” or “global warming.” It’s like running for president in 1936 and not mentioning that little conflict happening across the pond. Basically, Romney’s plan is marinated in crazy sauce.
