Middle of the Road Isn't The Safest Place To Be
Jamais Cascio, 10 Dec 04

The Christian Science Monitor has a short article today about the National Commission on Energy Policy's new set of proposals for US energy strategy. In trying to avoid controversy, it apparently manages to adopt really obsolete positions and still disappoint just about everyone. Elements include:

  • Investing in oil production in the developing world.
  • Doing "cap & trade" on greenhouse gases, but not until 2010.
  • Build the Alaska natural gas pipeline.
  • Invest in advanced coal technologies.
  • More nuclear plants.
  • Increase investment in renewables by $360 million per year.

    The more cynical among you will not be surprised to learn that even this has generated opposition from the usual suspects.

    A more 21st century, future-oriented -- yet hardly radical -- agenda can be found here.
