Well looks like things are calming down a bit in bolivia. Which is nice to hear. Although I'm not too sure about this new president dude, Rodriguez,
Also, let us be capable of discussing the issue of natural energy resources and their effective ownership by the Republic of Bolivia. The constitution states that the resources are originally owned by the state. Nothing has changed.
What has changed is the way to manage them, and it is Congress and the legislative branch which must be capable on this opportunity, or in its reviewed capacity following an electoral process, or when the most opportune moment occurs, to solve all the difficulties and render effective that constitutional principle, and a better way to recover what nature and God gave this country.
Que? If thats not a bit of governmentese double speak I don't know what is.
Meanwhile on the home front
.. some statesman in a farflung province of Eastern Australia is going to build some a gas power plant or two. But there's also a trial on for increasing the cost of energy in peak times, which is eventually good for reducing emissions because it controls the amount of new supply you need. Although at a rate of 12% of homes in 5 years, mind you.
And finally, Garret gets a sound bite into the press about nuclear power still being a fairly crap idea. Thank god - although it was Sunday night of a long weekend. Did someone say global warming?
