Newsweek CW: 'Energy Conservation' the 'One Clear Winner' in Face of Expensive Oil

May 22 screencap of Newsweek.com | NewsBusters.org"[up arrow] Energy conservation: The one clear winner as oil creeps toward $200 a barrel."

So declares Newsweek.com's Conventional Wisdom for May 22.

THE only clear winner? That may be a talking point suitable for Sen. Barack Obama's campaign, but it's hardly THE only clear winner for solving America's energy problems, that is, unless your "conventional wisdom" leaves out the views of conservatives.

How about drilling in ANWR, removing barriers to offshore drilling, and building more refineries? All of those are solutions furthered by conservatives in Washington, but which apparently don't dawn on the editors at Newsweek.
