  •  I know we are screwed (4.00)
    1. We are way behind on this issue - years behind thanks to the GOP and Clinton not picking up the ball where Carter left off.
    2. The solutions require vast changes infrastructure and we can't even keep a levee in tact.
    3. There are many things we can do as individuals, but for those of us who don't own our homes the real changes we could make in our environments are not doable unless a landlord agrees.
    4. Our tax structure actually favors waste over conservation.
    5. We face Wall Street Journal articles on the topic of increasing auto efficiency that make wild leaps that it would KILL people.
    6. Americans are selfish and stupid.
    7. We are going into a massive recession if gas prices stay high or go higher and our country is more debilitated than it has been in my lifetime.
    8. The majority of legislators we have were not willing to save thousands of drowning people two weeks ago.  To add insult to injury those same people voted down a resolution of inquiry.  We are screwed with a bunch of amoral self-serving assholes on the Hill.
    9. These same people are not for the life of them going to save us from an energy crisis.  They've probably all built gas reserves in their fucking back yards so they have some when we don't.  I admit to snark here, but there is simply no outward or forward view exhibited from the Hill.

    So there ya go.  I read everything you write.  I have little to say about energy that would be meaningful in avoiding the upcoming train-wreck.  Other than that it will suck and there is nothing I can do to change it.
