This might be the first time the WSJ has not been a climate change denier, coming out against heating oil subsidies to the poor because it’ll just pump more carbon into the atmosphere. (So then, they must be heating their offices with zero emission technology?)
The WSJ also says such money would just end up going to foreign oil exporters (funny, I thought it would go to the local heating oil company. Or do they think Chavez owns them?) Plus, they shriek, it would encourage those horrid poor people to use more oil (to heat their home above freezing, presumably) thus worsening the global warming they constantly say doesn’t exist.
I hope this clears things up.
