Old EIA report on "drill here, drill now"

I generally tend not to blog about environmental issues: Not because I don't recognize just how important they are in the scheme of challenges facing all of humanity, but because I inevitably fall back on reading about the economy and war in Iraq. But this post is just too good to not share and document for posterity's sake.

Basically, according to the US Energy Information Administration's latest report last October, McCain's energy plan, which consists of little more that empty chants of "Drill Baby Drill," won't make a dent in getting America off of its addiction to fossil fuels, and will instead just put off to future generations the difficult work of conserving and retooling our domestic economy.
