The immediate goal is to get our technology independent of terrorist oil. Our long term goal is to make it safe for our environment. I think that you
make a good point about alcohol. However I think we'd have to fight tooth and nail to keep the oil companies from being able to block such a

Tell the Arabs to go screw off indeed! Thats what we need to do. The discovery of a new energy source would cripple them irreverably, and the middle
east would no longer matter.
Terror money comes from oil, not drugs. Oil is evil. Oil enslaves us. With an alternative energy source (which i think we have several developed, but
the technology is being suprresed by oil companies and others) we could pull out of the middle east all together. Thier wealth would dry up, and they
would spiral down into oblivion unless they diversified thier holdings. Without oil, they are nothing.
All we need is a loeader who will actually take us down this path instead of one who will keep us addicted.
But, I agree, the reason for the OPEC cut in production is to cripple and harm the US economy, as OPEC cares nothing about energy conservation or the
environment, they care only for thier own pockets. We just need to go into energy rehab and find new and better sources of fuel. Like, alcohol, energy
cells,. Washington states electric power is generated through hydroelectric damns mostly, and a nuke plant. We have this resource available, let us
look into other areas of the country and find natural sources of electric power that will work well for them as well. Wind power in the midwest? Solar
power in the deserts?
And our automobiles, we must find and find quick something to drive our trucks and trains, cars and planes.
In the long run, finding new energy sources not only will benefit America economically and socially, but the environment will be the biggest winner:
