High Country News;5/1/2006, Vol. 38 Issue 8, p21
The article comments on the existing policy complications related to oil consumption in the U.S. The author offered a glimpse on the screening of the movie "Syriana" sponsored by several liberals and conservative groups. He literally argued on the practice of politics wherein politicians tried hard to promote political philosophy for personal claims. He hoped that the birth of the conservative-green coalition with its goal of environmental protection will serve as a step towards the common goal.
