Weekly Wrap-up

The Weekly Wrap-up is a day early this week. Tomorrow we’ll be observing Good Friday – not “The Hippie Holiday,” as The Washington Times aptly calls tomorrow’s Earth Day celebration.

The Environmental Protection Agency actually sees churches as the next big market for global warming propaganda.

(Note, too, that this initiative actually began during President George W. Bush’s years in office – which just goes to show this: As important as the 2012 presidential campaign is, there are deep-rooted problems in the way our government operates that won’t be fixed with just one election.)

The Heritage Foundation explains why now is the time to make cuts in the Department of Energy’s monstrous and growing budget.

This should come as news to no one: Gas prices continue to rise, with New York home to some of the highest prices.

Remember when Barack Obama called on Americans to just “adapt” to higher oil prices?

And don’t forget that Obama’s Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, has welcomed higher gas prices, and not too long ago told The Wall Street Journal, “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”

Chuck Schumer weighed in last week, saying we should tap into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve that’s for use in emergencies only (a problematic idea, to say the least) – and that we should all just go out and buy more fuel-efficient cars.

What do you think are the best plans for dealing with current gas prices? Do you agree with the Obama Administration that we should just adapt, and send prices higher? Or, do you want to see more oil production here at home? Vote for the solutions you support in our new Weekly Poll.

And have a great weekend!
