Grist for Thought

Over at Grist, Lisa Hymas has written an informed and informative piece on Ron Paul vis a vis energy and the environment. It’s also admirably nonideological; Hymas simply notes the ways in which Paul’s quirky type of Libertarianism sometimes does and more often doesn’t match up with the concerns of the Environmental Movement writ large/general. Much of the piece is a roundup of what others have written but it’s a quality roundup, and includes a nice quote from a previous Grist interview of Paul:  “I don’t ride my bike because I think I’m destroying the environment by driving my car; I ride it because it’s a great way to be outdoors and enjoy the environment.”
