Imagine a World Without Environmental Activists

Not that taking care of our environment is a bad thing, but it is the going to extremes that causes everybody grief. I ran across an article a The New Media Journal which, patterned after the movie "It's a Wonderful Life", will give you some things about environmental policy to consider.

The article is "It's a Wonderful Life...Environmentally Speaking" by Greg Lewis. He imagines what the world might be like if environmentalists hadn't forced restrictions or outright bans on drilling for oil in America and building nuclear facilities in America. Interesting scenarios. Perhaps things wouldn't turn out precisely as he imagines, but one can see how much better things might be, and why. I think it's a good read.

On a similar note, also at The New Media Journal, take a look at the article "When Gas Reaches $5 a Gallon, Thank Liberals!" by JB Williams. In this piece, Mr. Williams considers the high cost of gas and why it is so high. He points out the high prices in the European Union, which those on the left seem to consider a model for their policies, and he points out who the highest oil producers are who can "hold America hostage over an oil barrel". He also breaks down the cost of a gallon of gasoline and tells us where the money goes (hint: very little goes to oil companies). This article, too, will give you something to consider.
