I keep hearing how environmentalists are all in favor of "alternative energy sources", such as wind, solar, etc. Yet, I noticed that it was an environmental group that brought a law suit to stop construction of a large wind farm along the California-Oregon border. It's environmentalists stopping wind farms off the New England Coast. Environmentalists have consistently opposed nuclear power plants. And of course, whenever a new hydro-electric dam is proposed, it's the Robert Redford crowd filing suits to stop it. I wonder how it is that environmentalists keep a straight face when they flip the light switch in their own 6000 sq. ft. house, fill up their SUV, fire up the big yacht, or take the corporate jet out for an afternoon junket to Las Vegas. Like Al Gore - okay for me to consume, but not for you.
It cracks me up when one environmental group proposes a "green" project (like the wind farms) - and another environmental group brings law suits to shut them down.
Kinda like the Muslims who bomb one another's mosques. They dislike everybody so much that they even dislike themselves...
