The Energy Bill

From today's New York Times, page C7, column 1:
But this time around, [as opposed to in the wake of the 1973 oil embargo and subsequent price increases,] the government has done almost nothing to reduce the nation's vulnerability to a sudden interruption in oil supplies. Even the advocates for the long-stalled energy bill that has finally passed both houses of Congress - though in radically different forms - acknowledge that neither version of the measure will be effective.

Remember this when the energy bill is finally signed into law and Bush claims credit for doing something about our dependence on foreign oil.
