America's Gas Problem

Bob Burnett | Posted 05.21.2014 | Politics
Bob Burnett

President Obama isn't alone believing that the U.S. must have an all-of-the-above energy policy; slowly reducing our use of coal while heavily relying on natural gas and ramping up renewables.

This perspective has become one of the few points of agreement between Democrats and Republicans. (Although every time there's any disruption in the international oil market, Republicans reprise their "drill, baby, drill" refrain.) But there are problems with this perspective. History teaches that the conventional wisdom is often wrong and dogmatically clinging to it reduces opportunity, in the long run.
