Think globally, act locally is the solution. Globally something needs to be done to reign in speculators who are artificially driving up the prices,
the planet also needs to recognize that human caused cliamte change is a fraud and a farce and remove themselves from the chains of opression the Al
Gores of the world have shackled them in. Locally we need to open up ANWAR, build new refineries, institue laws to protect the oil industry (and no,
I'm not talking about "big oil" here, I'm talking about all oil) in much the same way as we've instituted livestock/produce anti-defamation laws
that will hold people accountable when they demonize oil or attempt to paint it as a scientifically unproven finite resource, finally we need to pull
every cent of subsidy going into biofuels as they are a miserably failed experiment, and redirect those funds into researching the most economical
process for extracting oil from oil shale and tar sands, and then fund building the facillities and equipment needed to obtain that oil.
Peak oil is a farce. Oil is abiotic and plentifull, we simply have a large segment of our leadership that lacks the balls to admit they've been
chasing snipes for the last 25 years with their claims that oil is finitie and only produced via decomposition of carbon based lifeforms. There is
simply no explanation for deep shell oil deposits other than a geologic source for oil. It is a by-product of geothermal activity inside the Earth
caused when temperatures concentrate hydrocarbons under high pressure, forming crude, natural gas, and methane. Until America and the world wake up
to this fact and start to actually question issues like global warming and peak oil, we are completely at the mercy of speculators and fear mongers.
