Energy Makes the Holidays Happen

After a week off visiting RGF co-founder and former president Harry Messenheimer in Hawaii (The Big Island) I’m back in the blogosphere. I know, someone has to do it!

Having just flown to Hawaii and back, the opinion piece in today’s Albuquerque Journal from my friend Marita Noon at the Citizens Alliance for Responsible Energy really hits home. After all, traveling to Hawaii and back (or anywhere else over the Holidays for that matter) takes a lot of energy. This doesn’t include Christmas lights, Holiday meals, gifts, and dozens of other things that make our lives comfortable.

This emphasis on the real, every-day benefits of energy must be contrasted against the almost daily stories about how the environmental, global warming fear-mongers are manipulating data to make it appear like the climate is in crisis.
