Surprise, surprise... while arguing about whether global warming is real or not on Fox News Sunday, Bill Kristol touts how wonderful our oil dependence has been for human beings.
Kristol: Oh, oil... we've got to get off oil. Oil has done an unbelievable amount of good for human beings... helping hundreds of millions more Chinese and Indians escape poverty over the next ten years is a lot more politically and morally defensible policy than totally trying to turn or economy on its head for the sake of dubious scientific propositions to make a few environmentalists feel good.
Juan Williams asks what's so dubious about getting off of our foreign oil dependence and of course Kristol doesn't think it is possible and then basically starts touting Sarah Palin's "drill baby drill" mantra and also calls for build more nukes.
Staying dependent on foreign oil has worked out nicely for Kristol and his fellow neocons who want to keep the military industrial complex going. I'm sure finding some alternatives would work out quite a bit better for the rest of us.
