I was shocked when reading this letter from Governor Bobby Jindal. Now I find him to be over political at times, even though I like his governing style in general. In this case, he is just out of his mind. BP has not even capped the well yet and Governor Jindal is asking for more drilling in Louisiana. I understand the economic output, but given all the gas they have found in the State he would be better off pushing for the Pickens plan which converts heavy trucks to natural gas than letting more drilling occur until they have a failsafe way to prevent future spills.
More importantly, as a smart young person, he knows that we can offset all off shore drilling with electric vehicles, natural gas, and higher CAFE standards. Why politicians like him put their brains
in a drawer to dumb themselves down I have no idea.
