Energy Crisis? What Energy Crisis?

"President Bush is an oil man. His pappy...His VP...His pals and his family’s pals are oil men... So when you say ‘energy crisis,’ what exactly do you mean? This is a great time to be an oil man!" writes Andrew, "The solution to the ‘crisis,’ according to this administration, is to drill for oil in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, not to promote conservation. Drilling for oil is what oil men DO. Conservation hurts oil men two ways. First, they sell less oil. Second, because of that lessened demand, the oil they do sell fetches a lower price."
