The pres­i­dent’s ‘green’ bias knows no lim­its

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

The Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s very dif­fer­ent re­ac­tions to three re­cent dis­as­ters shows its clear bias for “green.”

One oil shut­off valve out of thou­sands in the Gulf of Mex­ico failed to­close. The ad­min­is­tra­tion shut down all drilling and ex­plo­ration there and im­posed a mora­to­rium on new and pend­ing per­mits.

An un­prece­dented tsunami in Ja­pan dis­abled four of six re­ac­tors on the coast.

Fol­low­ing the lead of Ja­pan and Ger­many, the ad­min­is­tra­tion called for a re­view of all U.S. re­ac­tors, whether or not near coast­lines.

Two “bul­let” trains col­lided in China. The ad­min­is­tra­tion con­tin­ued to push high-speed rail projects in the U.S.

I guess that’s “win­ning the fu­ture” while los­ing the past . . . and the present. Barry J. Mitchel Portsmouth, Vir­ginia
