Fitting right in with what the Right should be saying on energy...

...and that is--what T. Boone Pickens has been lobbying for lately:

"In T. Boone Pickens' war, the enemy is foreign oil. Pickens, the Republican Texas oil mogul, testified Tuesday before a Senate panel to lay out his new, self-titled "Pickens Plan" to boost renewable energy sources, get the U.S. transportation sector off oil, and cut U.S. use of foreign petroleum. Pickens told the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee that aside from getting away from foreign oil, he's for just about anything, from electric cars — like those advocated by Al Gore — to offshore drilling on the Outer Continental Shelf and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge."

Bingo. Seek alternative sources of energy (and don't forget nuclear power).
Promoting conservative is all well and good. But don't let the conversation stop there.
