If a picture is worth 1,000 words, what is the value of these eight images when pieced together?

    Obviously put together by a rather biased Democrat. I would think an equally biased Republican would order the pictures somewhat differently!

    As to who is right – your guess is as good as mine.

    From what I saw of the last third of the recent Candidate’s debate, McCain is slightly ahead in the credibility stakes.

    Dudley —

    Thanks for visiting.

    When it comes to energy policy and concerns about the future of the planet, this ordering actually stands up reasonably well … why not, for example, consider the words of Republican oil investor / author Matt Simmons (http://getenergysmartnow.com/2008/09/23/lifelong-republican-energy-guru-mccain-doesnt-have-a-clue/):

    “John McCain is energy illiterate. He’s just witless about this stuff.” As for McCain’s running mate, Sarah Palin, Simmons says: “She’s a very colorful person, but I don’t think there’s a scrap of evidence that she knows anything about energy.”

    This is not a “guess”, we can look to the energy, fiscal, environmental, and security implications of various energy proposals and suggestions.

    There are clear facts. We cannot ‘drill’ our way out of our energy problem. Anyone who leads with and dominates the discussion with that is either displaying ignorance or a crass willingness to deceive the public (whether for political, financial, or other reasons).

    45 nuclear power plants by 2030 won’t solve global warming. It doesn’t keep up with projected US electrical demand.
