    PRESIDENT CALLS FOR CONSERVATION

    Maybe he really HAS stopped listening to Dick Cheney!

    Government should cut energy use as example: Bush
    Matt Spetalnick, January 24, 2007 (Reuters via Yahoo News)

    - President George W. Bush urged the federal government on Wednesday to take the lead in reducing energy consumption and using alternative fuels, as he pushed his State of the Union call for U.S. energy independence from foreign oil…
    - Bush set a goal of reducing U.S. gasoline use by 20 percent over a decade, mostly through a large increase in the use of home-grown fuels such as ethanol…
    - "We're going to reduce the gas consumption in the federal fleet by 20 percent over 10 years. We're going to be joining with America, we set the goal," Bush said.
    - He toured an experimental greenhouse for the production of cellulosic ethanol, a fuel made from grasses, wood chips and other nonfood agriculture products…
    - Environmentalists said Bush's call for reducing gasoline consumption was a positive step but not enough…


    - Dupont is among 10 major U.S. corporations that have joined with environmental groups to urge the president and Congress to pass laws curbing emissions of heat-trapping gases.
    - Bush said new technologies should be the focus…Bush advocated nuclear power as a source of cleaner energy…Bush also called for overhauling the Corporate Average Fuel Economy system to allow for cars with greater fuel efficiency.

    Here’s an “overhaul”: the November, 2006, election. Here’s a “new technology”: the November, 2008, election.
