This piece in the NYT is pretty depressing. It’s about the main battles around the upcoming energy legislation. Here are the points of contention:
- Ethanol subsidies
- Coal and nuclear subsidies
- CAFE standards
On pretty much all these issues, it’s Big Money lobby vs. Big Money lobby, and every one of them is a distraction — no help at best, a hindrance at worst. Where’s the Big Efficiency lobby when you need it?
