Happy belated Earth Day!

Here is your gift, Mother Earth. Bush has called for the Environmental Protection Agency to waive gasoling clean-burning regulations for the summer driving season. This would lower gas prices, as dirty-burning gas is cheaper to produce. Of course, cars would pollute more; as if the air in the summer doesn't get bad enough.

I have a better idea. How about people just don't drive as much this summer? Or maybe take public transit? Or ride bikes? How about we keep jacking up gas prices so we can stimulate alternative energy research? Temporarily keeping gas prices low only delays the inevitable.

You should call this blog "I should be less pessimistic".
