vinod khosla on the warpath

apr 3rd
against oil companies; vested interest in his ethanol investments. but hey, the guy is smart and this time he surely has the force of history behind him: we are reaching peak oil. and oil companies are hardly strangers to lobbying. they just got a clean $7 billion in federal subsidies for drilling (i forgot exactly where, saw the news in passing a few days ago in the nytimes). and poor babies, these oil companies are in such dire straits with oil at $63 a barrel and production costs of about $2 a barrel, aren't they? my heart truly bleeds for them.
ps. amazed that mathai chacko kuruvilla, kerala christist, didn't bash khosla some more just because khosla is an indian, possibly a hindu.
