T. Boone Pickens and Al Gore to Team Up

Energy Faceoffs Spark Police Raids and Surprising Couplings

Grab a Redbull, it's a big week of energy match-ups: Obama vs. McCain, Protesters vs. Police, and Pickens plus Gore?

While Barack Obama may be declaring it "energy week" in a speech in the US today, in the UK police have cracked down on a camp of eco-activists protesting a new coal-fired power station. Police made arrests today during a second raid of the campsite.

Earlier, around 200 officers raided the climate camp, taking custody of hundreds of items they said could be used to break the law. The week-long camp out is being held at the proposed site of the UK's first new coal-fired power station in 30 years.

To see their difference in opinion, plus the green team of Pickens and Gore,

.

The protesters claim that the police are stopping their message that a new coal station will stop the UK from meeting CO2 targets, while the police have a different take. They say the items taken (super glue, climbing ropes, and bolt cutters) show the protesters had a more malicious intent.

Meanwhile, energy mavericks Al Gore and T. Boone Pickens have been in talks about what could be the most interesting combo of planet warriors to date. The duo are said to be in talks about their respective campaigns to overhaul US energy. Is it too late for Pickens/Gore '08?

Right. Even if they're wrong about global warming (and I don't accept that as a possibility really, but just for the sake of argument), it's not hurting anything by trying to reduce carbon emissions.

And by global warning, I apparently mean global warMing.

Anyone else totally creeped out by the kid in the checkered hat and glasses? torg, you have an interesting point. I would say that regardless of whether we're heating up the world, it's hard to disagree with the idea that at some point we'll just plain old run out of fossil fuels. Not to mention that our reliance on oil is causing us much grief politically. So I guess I'm saying we don't even need the extra argument of global warning to focus our attention on energy.

It is so weird to me how accepting that climate change is happening is at least loosely related to political leanings. I wonder if a republican had become one of the most outspoken people on the issue if things would be different, if I would be thinking of global warming as a theory instead of accepting it as fact. I wonder how this period of climate-mania will be seen a hundred years from now. I wonder if it will be just a phase we went through, if global warming doubters will be grouped with those who clung to the idea that the world is flat, or if environmentalists will go down in history as overzealous alarmists.

Yeah, scare people sensless with theories that have little basis in fact.
