Wind Power Chips in at Republican Convention
The Republican National Convention issue of Roll Call, the political newspaper covering Capitol Hill, features a cover with a cartoon of an ax-wielding logger whose ax reads "tax cuts," accompanying an elephant with a "Drill Here, Drill Now!" banner. Meanwhile, the back cover warns, "CAUTION: Stopping Wind Turbines Will Result in Loss of Jobs," in a full-page ad placed by the American Wind Energy Association. It's a strong reminder that energy issues will be front and center when Congress returns soon for a final brief session before the November election.
