The news story on yahoo is here
Cheney was quoted as saying "environmentalists are relying too much on renewables and conservation to solve the nation's energy problems.
America is possible the least environmentally friendly country in the world! Central Europe is really really into recycling and you can get fined if you do not sort out your rubbish properly. In my house and area there is a "green box" which is emptied each week and can take metals/paper/glass etc. I wish it did plastic recycling though.
I guess Bush has money in energy companies, and saving the world reduces his shares!
