George Dubya Bush to speak at Windpower Conference: Oxy(moron)?

Windpower Expo

Mr. Oil himself is going green, I love it! Seriously, when prep-school silver spoon cowboys are touting domestic, clean energy, you know a new day has dawned:

The Honorable George W. Bush
43rd President of the United States

Tuesday, May 25, 8:30 am – 10:00 am

Former President George W. Bush will talk about his experience as Texas’s governor, and as President, in advancing energy policies. Texas is the wind energy leader in the U.S. with over 9, 000 MW of wind power installed. Texas’ growth was largely triggered by policies such as a state renewable portfolio standard and non-discriminatory transmission rules that were put in place when former President George W. Bush was governor.   Under his presidency, the U.S. Department of Energy issued a technical study showing wind could provide 20% of the nation’s electricity by 2030.

The Oxymoron joke I can’t claim as my own, it’s via twitter. And, again, with all due respect—psyched to see our 43rd President representin’ truly American energy for a change (as opposed to his VP conducting private energy policy meetings in the White House not so long ago).

On the other hand, not psyched about co-speaker Jason Alexander’s toupée. When you’re famous for being bald, who you think you’re foolin’ with your new rug?
