Your front-page article "Canada Has Plenty of Oil, But Does the U.S. Want It?" (July 8) highlights the fact that the U.S. environmental lobby and its helpers in Congress are truly the "party of no."
It seems that the environmental lobby is against developing the Canadian oil sands, drilling offshore, drilling in the Alaskan wilderness, hydraulic fracturing, mountain-top coal mining, electric transmission lines connecting solar power to the grid in the California desert and nuclear power.
To be sure, there are and always have been environmental issues associated with energy development, but I wonder where the environmental lobby is going to get the power to air-condition its plush offices in Washington, D.C. We may just as well mail in the keys to our nation to Saudi Arabia if we are going to say "no" to all energy development.
