Is it just me, or is the full list of people Dick Cheney met with as part of his energy task force almost laughably un-scandalous. There’s a lot of polluting energy company executives here! Plus folks from some smaller green firms! And a few people from environmental groups. Plus members of congress from both parties. Superficially, this actually seems like the sort of process that might have produced an okay energy policy. Except, at the end of the day Bush and Cheney just did what their campaign contributors in the oil, gas, coal, etc. sectors wanted them to do.
