in the U.S. it's almost impossible to start a new power plant (esp nuclear), and the Obama admin is throttling new drilling for oil, esp in the Gulf of Mexico. we have tons of oil in Alaska and off the Arctic, but our govt won't allow us to get it.
why? the liberal Democrat party is obsessed with global warming and ecology, and they are convinced that 'green energy'--solar, wind, etc--will supply the shortfall. they are apparently too stupid or too heartless to realize that we are YEARS away from the technology to produce 'green' power in quantity.
meanwhile the poor and middle class in the U.S. pay out the nose for energy that we could be producing ourselves.
only comfort is that in the far future when other fossil fuels are exhausted we'll still have some since they won't let us get it now!
