"All of the Above" Is No Energy Policy
"..."all of the above" -- coal, oil, gas, nuclear, solar, wind, and so on --
is a not an energy policy; it's a cop-out. It's how elected officials dodge hard choices about our energy security. It's how they avoid political backlash from energy interests, especially those with money and clout such as coal, oil and nuclear.
"All of the above" is how elected officials minimize their personal political risk by shifting it onto the shoulders of the American people, who have to live with the consequences."
