  • Dendreon: Fear is Our Friend  [View instapost]
    Excellent insight! This is the kind of article (well-reasoned and full of facts, as opposed to FUD) that I wish Seeking Alpha had more of.

  • California's Fuel-Efficiency Battle and Peak Oil  [View article]
    Fitz, while I agree with the substantive points of your argument (i.e. we should move ahead aggressively in all alternative energy areas, including NGV, nuclear, etc.), your message will lose some support as long as you focus on bush-bashing. The fact of the matter is that neither party is pushing a reasonable energy policy, and neither the Congress nor the President has given significant leadership. For example,
    1. Both parties jumped all over ethanol in order to garner support in the Iowa caucas. Are you kidding me?
    2. Hillary is now suggesting an energy policy that LOWERS gasoline taxes, and then exacerbates the oil situation by instituting a punitive tax on oil companies. How much sense does that make?

    Still, by and large, I agree with your energy points. You'll get more people to agree (and listen), if you spend less time on Bush. If you want a political argument to break out (as here), then start bashing. If you want a substantive discussion/feedback on energy issues, then focus on the policies we need, not the policies of the past.
