The mushy answers so-called environmentalists too often give regarding real energy issues don’t that help much with solving real world problems Dan Markind says.
The tragic shooting last Wednesday of House Republican Whip Steve Scalise brought into sharp focus the shrill, brain-damaged discourse of our current politics. We discuss less shout, usually past each other, and often using words meant less to educate and persuade than to dismiss. Those of us in the energy field see this every day. It’s almost impossible to have a reasoned discussion about the issues without degenerating into name-calling. So, let’s start changing that dynamic right here and now, and attempt to convince instead of insult.
