    The news is that this information was moving around the U.S. government during the Bush Administration even as the nation takes what can be, politely, called half-measures to address our addiction to oil and too many politicians are actually pushing fossil-foolish agendas that serve to increase our dependency on a depletable resource that (almost) certainly will become more expensive and less available with each passing day.

    implies Bush didn't address the oil squeeze. He did indeed try. That was the real and only reason we invaded Iraq. Those oil reserves could not be fully opened up to the world market while Sadam was in power, so we went to war. It was always about oil.

    Those currently pushing fossil-foolish agendas are simply childish. They want to burn more oil "because they can", in defiance of those who try to deal with truth. They want the world they believe in, as opposed to the one they live in.

    Improvement is change. Not all change is improvement.
