This isn't about the environment. If it were, the left would embrace clean coal, nuclear and natural gas, which are proven, clean energy sources. They'd encourage domestic oil drilling and pipelines, which are less risky to the environment than supertankers that have to transit dangerous parts of the world and risk massive spills. They would permit wind farms within sight of their homes, instead of filing lawsuits that put their scenic views over the energy needs of their neighbors. They'd live in the smaller homes that they expect us to live in. They'd fly commercial, instead of on private planes. They'd fire their drivers, scrap their limos and drive the same econoboxes that they demand that we make do with. In short, they'd practice what they preach. But they don't, because it isn't about the environment, it's about controlling their fellow men and women.
