The NYT sticks the boot in on Bush (again)

Following on from Friedman’s op-ed the other day, another editorial in the New York Times has expressed its disbelief at the short-sightedness and poor leadership of the Bush administration in terms of energy policy. Everybody and their dog appears to pointing out just how ludicrous it is to continue pumping money into a carbon-based economy, yet the US Congress continues to be quite pig-headed about the whole thing, happily passing laws to dig holes for oil in national parks in Alaska (among other things). As the editorial concludes, it appears as though special interests come before the national interest (… and most certainly before global interest!).
