Here's your chuckle for this morning.
From "the Roanoke Times editorial board":
Natural gas is not a renewable energy sourceAsinine is as asinine does.
Del. Will Morefield of Tazwell [jf: Tazwell?] says he has prefiled legislation for the upcoming General Assembly session to count natural gas — primarily coalbed methane — as a renewable energy source. Companies that burn the gas to generate energy then could benefit under the state’s renewable energy programs.
We’re writing an editorial for later in the week in which we will point out what an asinine idea this is. Coming from Moregield [jf: Moregield?], though, it is hardly surprising. [link]
