While the pachyderms will quickly get over their embarrassment as if it never were, the Obama Administration regrettably feels none at all for their latest groveling. Abandoning all pretense of commitment to a sustainable energy future, they embrace the diametrically opposite choice—the dirtiest fuel in the most environmentally damaging way, threatening a critical aquifer, and condemning us to climate disaster. And politically, they will score no lasting points with Big Oil or the GOP. Everyone loses, except those that stand to profit at our collective expense.
