The link is www.cnn.com...

Now for some reason I am a little reluctant to belive this for the simple fact that the bush family is in the oil buisness.Anyone else think this is an empty promise?

link no work

Saudia Arabia doesn't like the idea of the US losing its addiction to oil. Maybe that is why he sold the port management to the UAE

The same major players will be involved, so I have no problem believing he is sincere.

How does that follow?

I submit to you this link:

Bush aides clarify statements about oil

It was only an example folks...

Not to be taken literally...

My only question is that when he said that the state of the union is strong, did he mean that only as an example, and not to be taken literally?

edit: typo.

"Wow the president must really be a great guy cause he see's our pain at the pump and is going to help us with alternative energy"

"Well I guess I was wrong about the neo-cons; they're not the oil whores I thought they were"

Whew, I feel so much better!!!

Addiction, huh?

Like we have had any other choice. This word he chose is suspicious.

True dgtempe, how is this addiction? It's like only having a McDonalds fast food restaurant, then saying the people in the town are addicted to McDonalds. They aren't, it is the only place that sells food in that town, so that is where people go to eat. Only thing we have to fuel cars our gas, made from oil, so we are not addicted to oil.

Quit whining whaaa... Here... Have a tissue.


We have already cut back our dependance on foreign oil ten fold. Well... Unless you consider our plaid wearing mullet haired friends to the north foreign.


Remember... Everything is going to be alright.

Again with the Marley reference? Marley was a runner...not a driver.

We aren't addicted to oil. As is been said...we have no choice. Gimme a car and a house that runs without the stuff that doesnt require a six-figure income and Ill take it.

The sad truth is we will never see a major scale-back on petroleum because wayyyyyy too many old, fat, white guys get rich on the stuff. I wouldnt wait for affordable alternative energy cars or alternative home heating until the tap runs dry. Until then, all of our engineering is going to go into minimizing the consumption, rather than redirecting it.

But my fingers are crossed...hoping I am wrong. Can morality outweigh greed???? I doubt it.

I which they would just focus on one item.....BATTERIES!

Let the "juice" be made elsewhere, and dont carry your own power plant in you car. I think we need more "green" power plants, not just solar & wind, But I would have a huge majority of electricity produced by nuclear power plants.

Cars would be drive-by-wire (like modern planes) that way theres less mechanical breakdowns, and instead of investing in all this money into hydrogen fuel cells & ethanol, I would have it all go into batteries. You get home and just plug in your car...You realistically cant do that today.

Batteries are the key to a "greener" future.

Such moronic statements from the King are the things that get under your skin- like fungus.

Why should he chose the word "addict"??? With addiction you have a choice,(as well he should know:lol
of using whatever it is, or opting not to.



Its like being addicted to urinating. Or as ridiculous as being addicted to brushing your teeth.


I know he tries....he just sinks deeper in the cowmanure.

Tsk tsk

dgtempe - you allready discussed the addiction part......I dont swing by the ATS politics forum much, but wow, it sure is easy to pick out the Bush bashers.


BTW, Millions of people are invested in oil, after all, it is black gold, and gold and oil have only done one thing the past several years...gone up up and up.

Why? Because we cannot dispose of the waste. They tell you we can...but it isnt safe. We are finding out that the waste we thought was safe is not. Rather than rotting our ozone and killing the planet from above, we will rot it from its core. Do some research on how they get rid of the "left-overs" from power plants. It isnt daisy fertilizer.

You have to start somewhere. I am sure there are viable options to deal with the waste for example blasting it to space. A little waste has never stopped us before why should it now?

Another reason...

How long was it after the widespread use of fossil fuels that we realized it was killing the environment? How many common items have we discovered to cause cancer, or some other disease years after it has been in use? Everything from asbestos, cfc's, gas engines, lead, etc...took a while for science to catch up and discover the dangers. Same will be true with anything in the future. We have to be mindful that we aren't "Know-it-alls" as soon as we make a significant scientific discovery.

We don't know everything about it. It is scary stuff.

Blasting it into space is an idea though...

I agree with your first paragraph, but to that I would say that trial and error has proved to be one of the best ways we learn. Look throughout our history, disasters/accidents only make us stronger, by pursuing fusion we are putting our foot in the door for bigger and better technologies down the road.
