This has me worried: George Will calls for no apocalypse in 2012

Will’s latest offering — “America’s Oil Boom” — seems designed to perpetuate confusion about the export surplus in petroleum products, which Will does not ascribe to economic depression, unemployment and the substantial drop in miles traveled, but to “abundance.” I suspect he misunderstands the issue even as he attempts to obscure it.

He may be right about the insidious nature of “progressives,” whoever they are. But what if there really is energy scarcity. Can Will and his fellow obscurants successfully blame that on “progressives” as well? They’re going to give it a good try.

Drivers cut short journeys by 165 miles to beat fuel costs – Telegraph.

The headline of the article (concerning ‘the Why’) is an editorialization not entirely supported by the facts within it. Interesting.

A list from the EPA… This page has more detailed information on history of the sites and various remediation efforts. The EPA and City of Denver consider this situation to be generally cleaned up and finished.

The site of the Home Depot on Santa Fe had 97000 tons of radium-infused soil removed. Denver is a dirty bomb.

I like how the Purple Haze and former I-Hop on East Colfax somehow got zapped with radioactive waste. (2000-block east, north side of street.) They’re not exactly sure how. Maybe the scientist from Repo Man went by there.
