Jed Babbin at the American Spectator recounts the steady stream of political knavery, green graft and governmental stupidity of 2011: The Year The Wheels Fell Off.
I liked them all, especially this one:
“An enterprising BBC reporter — seeking to prove the practicality of electric cars — drove from London to Edinburgh. The journey took four days — longer than a horse-drawn stage would have taken for the trip 150 years ago — including nine stops of up to ten hours.”

Ah, yes, the dream of emission-free electric cars will save the world. But wait. Are they emission free? Well, not if the electricity used to recharge them comes from coal-fired power plants. In that case, an electric car is actually a coal-burning car. An electric car is only emission-free and cheap to operate, if the electricity to recharge it is generated at a nuclear power plant.
