It's always nice to see "the public" rallying for change in government. The latest perverse mutation of this notion is in the form of the Consumer Alliance for Affordable Natural Gas, the brainchild of "CONsumers" such as Dupont, Dow Chemical and the American Chemistry Council, who endeavor to remove regulatory restrictions on oil & gas drilling and access to the Arctic Wildlife Refuge.
