Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I for the first time read a few of the older ones of these on kos and followed threads where they happened to lead. Slow day at work. Good stuff...

Some very famous flame wars a few of these occasioned. Quite surprising, I'd have thought. Energy isn't exactly the most controversial topic in left blogostan, unless you are trying to defend Exxon's handling of the Valdez crash or somesuch...

Energy is not controversial in the left blogostan, but gas taxes and voluntary demand reduction (as kcurie says, the private car is where demand can be reduced more easily) are controversial in the US, left or right. It's the policy proposals to deal with energy issues that cause the flame wars, because too many kossacks are libertarians.
