The very sad part about our dwindling oil supplies is that if we, not only in America, but in the world, had any leadership at all with the brains of
a gnat, a crash program somewhat like the Manhattan Project would be started to find alternative energy sources and alternative transportation
With the technology available today, there is no reason for governments not to push the Sciences into a bold adventure into tommorow. Science needs
to find a way to replace oil, not only as a fuel for the most part, but oil usage in plastics, synthetics and other items the world uses.
With China emerging as a world power, their energy needs for 1.2 billion will tax the already low oil supplies, thus driving up prices world wide even
more than we see now. We have to stop and smell the roses, or is that exhaust fumesfrom internal combustion engines and create new and cleaner
Considering America is the leading consumer of oil products, it is time we lead the way into tommorow with better more efficent modes of
transportation. In order to do this however, we as Americans will have to start electing something besides republicans and democrats into office.
They are bought and paid for by big business, the banksters, and big oil. Heck, we have the best government money from special interest groups can
