In a call for America to diversify away from oil, he said it would be in the interests of the US government to see power come from “renewable sources of energy."
Mr Bush said that apart from the economic savings, it would also be in the interests of the environment and national security.
The former president, speaking in Dallas, said he believed that his grandchildren would be driving electric cars and that he fully believed plug-in hybrids would be the transition to a new energy era.
Yeah! Wind power!
Another lie coming from big oil!
Simply put , T.Boone Pickens , the self-made billionare from Oklahoma (but is headquartered in Dallas) , supported Dubya throughout his political career , from start to finish.
I guarantee if you dig deep enough you will find T . Boone Pickens is connected with this .

Just curious, I understand hating Bush. I hate the man intensely. But if you really believe wind turbines are a benefit what does it matter who's stating it? Whether it's Bush or Gore they both likely have a financial or socio-political hand in the mix. You can't favor the wind turbines if a hated man claims they are needed or just because a profit is to be had? Regardless of how they get built or who supports the action somebody is making a profit.
Seems like for some folks dangling over a cliff they would actually be choosy and picky about who they would allow to assist them up. Sure, if the devil himself offered to help me for my soul I would probably just plummet to my death but as far as mortal men go any of them stating this "wind power" thing are all corrupt, lying, and rich politicians. So how do you conclude the same words from one mouth are more sincere than the words from a different mouth?
For the record I not only intensely dislike Bush I also think the wind farm thing is bogus as hell.
Oh, and doesnt Bush have some completely off-grid eco ranch or something like that? Has had it for quite a long time if I remember correctly.
Hear it is.
I just find it odd that the speaker would be attacked and not the words spoken. Certainly the man has actions and notions on his permanent record that call for an immediate hanging but what politician or even celebrity talking head doesnt? If we cast off everything the Nazi's did as far as science and medicine goes because they were evil S.O.B.'s wouldnt that be foolish?
But in the end I guess another "Let's hate W" thread is more fun than a discussion on the viability of massive scale wind power generation.
