Re: "America is addicted to oil"
- The source of Bush's comment, I believe, comes from Set America Free
(http://www.setamericafree.org/). I encountered this group last
summer. At first glance they seem to be saying the right things,
however, their "solution" is that new technology will permit happy
motoring into the future. You can read about my encounter at
http://walkbike.org/_wsn/page2.html - see heading "Checkmate!" This
group has been courting the Republican Party, so it follows that their
ideas made there way into the President's speech.
My apologies for not being active in this group as of late, or
updating my blog walkbike, but I am now employed by Amtrak. In the
spirit of doing more with less I have been taking work home and
focusing on my job. My thanks to everyone on this group for promoting
rail in the US.
