Heartland Institute Senior Fellow for Environment Policy James M. Taylor was a guest on the nationally syndicated Lars Larson Radio Show the other day.
Lars and James talked about the latest developments on the Keystone XL pipeline — specifically whether Congress and the mainstream media can pressure Obama to finally approve it. James is not hopeful, saying of the administration’s outlook in general:
They want to see this country being a nation that does not have affordable energy, that is getting away from carbon-based energy sources regardless of whether there is environmental impact or not.
Lars notes that the Obama administration hasn’t prosecuted a single wind-farm owner for the hundreds of thousands of bird deaths, and James offers some excellent perspective on that fact.
