If Bush Is Serious about Global Warming...

The News Journal reports that President Bush plans to visit a DuPont Company facility in Delaware on Wednesday to illustrate his new-found interest in alternative energy sources and climate change. Mike Castle is looking for evidence of evolution from Bush tomorrow night:
"You wonder if he's going to have a different policy, if it's going to evolve on Tuesday night, in terms of his views on some of the energy issues," Castle said.
If Bush has become serious about climate change, a good place for him to start would be to stop subsidizing the burning of hydrocarbons. Specifically, he could agree to sign H.R. 6, which would take back most of the subsidies granted to oil and gas companies over the last six years. But perhaps I am placing undue faith in his capacity to evolve.
