According to John McCain, Sara Palin “knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America.”
Here’s Tom Tomorrow’s response:
Really? Sarah Palin knows more about energy than, say, anyone in the Department of Energy, thousands of Ph.Ds in academia, or the CEOs of dozens of oil and gas companies?
I agree with Tomorrow, based on the depressing literature from the oil industry itself.
Considering my somewhat informed understanding America’s energy woes combined with Palin’s simplistic claims that we can lick the energy problem without a serious focus on conservation, I’d have to ring up McCain’s claim regarding Palin’s status as “energy expert” as yet another lie.
