The New Republic runs a piece titled: “‘Energy Independence’ will Destroy the Planet: U.S. politicians are fooling themselves on climate change.”  

The piece argues that “we are now entering a new era of climate schizophrenia, with energy policy that accelerates climate change celebrated as a solution to global warming.”  

“As the costs of fossil-fueled global warming grow, our leaders are accelerating the extraction of carbon reserves.”
