No Time For Cynicism on Energy

Bill Scher

One of the reasons why I wrote yesterday’s post on the energy bill deal was in anticipation of articles like today’s in the New York Times.

…despite the tougher 35 m.p.g. standard, a growing population of drivers would push up total fuel use, as well as greenhouse gas emissions — but not as rapidly as would occur without the legislation.

True enough, but what should that mean for us?

Does it mean that the energy bill is meaningless and not worth our time?

Absolutely not.
