Good post. It was interesting to read the president's remarks, although I am left with the same conclusion that you were. The Economist called it "No Lobbyist Left Behind", the current issue of Business Week (June 27, 2005) headlines it "Lobbyists are Gushing" and says "Even Congress may not be able to swallow all the pork".

According to BW, the bill provides oil and gas drillers with $100 billion over ten years in tax breaks, $2 billion for MTBE producers, $2 billion over ten years just for drilling research (what are we going to drill in the US in ten years?).

Now what was the first step and who is going to pay for it?

I am sickened every time I see how much money the federal government is spending on conventional oil production and clean coal. Wow $100 billion dollars to oil production and drilling and a whopping $84 million dollars to alternative energy. Is that a bone or what? Let's see, that's not even one percent. That's not even 0.1 percent. So when are we really going to get serious about this problem.

I love this site and have it listed in my favorites. Maybe if we can get enough people talking about this we can get our government to do something productive in this area. I hope the next guy who gets in the presidency isn't so well connected with the oil industry.
