The Political Chemistry of Oil

Follow up Interview



If you are the (my) kind of geek who likes to be able to actually read charts and graphs, readable versions of what she showed are here and here. I would take issue with the health care cost comparison (second link), it only includes the out-of-pocket and insurance cost, not the employers cost, medicare cost, or in the case of the 25% family the cost to the taxpayers for the CHIPs coverage of their children.

Of course, this does little to weaken her central points, and 3 cents a year isn't enough – though she probably figures that is as much as one could get politically (and likely not even that). She's clearly un-American:

Q (reporter): Does the president believe, given the amount of energy that Americans consume per capita, how much it exceeds any other citizen in any other country in the world, does the president believe that we need to correct our lifestyles to address the energy problem?
A: (Bush press secretary, Ari Fleischer): That’s a big ‘no’. The president believes that’s an American way of life.
