Help run this ad!

I love this ad.  Let’s help the NRDC get this published in the Washington Post, shall we?  Click here to make a donation.

Sadly, the Bush/McCain snake oil (being peddled with particular exuberance by none other than NewtContract On The Earth*-Gingrich) appears to have potent stupification effects: 74 percent of Americans now approve of offshore drilling, despite the fact that even though “Federal energy analysts have said offshore drilling would have no impact on oil production or prices until 2030.”

No surprises re: where the candidates stand on this nonsense.  McCain is pushing the snake oil for its “psychological benefits.”

*”mistitle” intended; and I didn’t attach my Powells account number to that link, either: if you buy his book, I don’t want any points from it!
