Paris Hilton is one of my least favorite celebrities. Today, as much as I hate to say it, I kind of like her. Why? The instantly infamous FunnyorDie.com “Paris for President” ad:
This was Paris’ response to presidential candidate John McCain using her in his ads.
It’s pretty darn funny.
The clincher? What Paris is saying about a “hybrid” drilling/renewable plan might actually work. National focus should absolutely be on alternative energy such as solar, wind, and nuclear–but no source of considerable scale will come online until about a decade from now.
On the other hand, oil companies have plenty of land that they haven’t yet accessed. Some existing offshore areas, such as the Chevron Destin field off the coast of Florida, could also be tapped relatively quickly.
Using available, pre-approved sources to supplement imported oil, while focusing like mad on renewables, might actually be the necessary compromise that will get us through the next decade.
She’s, like, totally onto something. What do you think?
