    Eh, this won't be for a while to come. Not while there's still some serious dough still be to made. Wouldn't suprise me if America decides to take over ALL the middle east for its own benefits in the future.

    So, by waiting, we get more money in the long run? That doesn't make sense either.

    Don't get too excited about this. Money is a big motivating factor in our slow switch from fossil fuels. I will admit that. I don't think we have enough resources (solar, wind, etc) for our power needs right now. They would have to be built and then brought to our homes. This would require money. Where is this money going to come from? The government? Not likely unless they're arm is twisted to make them take those steps. Oil manufacturers are a large contributor to a lot of politicians so why would you rush in and piss them off. You see where this is going? It's a pipe dream. If it happens it won't be in our lifetime.

    We have the technology to use alternative fuel types, we just don't have the infrastructure. It would take a lot of "$$$$$$$" to get to the point where we dont' rely on oil anymore. And since people are still consuming almost the same amout of gas as they were before it was $3 per gallon, there's not incentive to really switch over yet. Our country won't seriously begin finding ways to implement the usage of other types of fuel until we actually have to (we run out of oil).

    which is pretty fuckin retarded if you ask me... why wait til it runs out to do somethin about it?? it is running out and they dont want to switch over because they are making too much money. im sorry i just dont agree with that.

    i am open to hear soemthin different, but i just dont see how this makes any sense. i mean im not sayin to just diminish oil right away, of course you cant just phase it out over night. but, i think we should at least try and elevate the speed of the progression of other sources of power instead of just waiting for oil to run out

    Of course it doesn't make a lot of sense. But our government has a way of not dealing with problems until something bad happens... See 9/11.... See Huricane Katrina

    Since gas prices keep increasing, won't we have less money to pay for the switch in the future? And because of this, doesn't it makes sense that if we're not willing to do it now, that we will never do it? If so, then wow, we're kinda fucked.

    I say that we should all rely on hamster power! let the little furry guys run on their wheels connected to generators and have them charge up batteries like that! not like there will be a shortage of hamsters anytime soon!

    Anyone thinking that alternative fuel will put Bush out on the streets is naive. The plan is simple: control the oil, milk it for what it's worth, then when the crisis hits, the oil company makes the switch for us, and continues to dominate the energy market. Same people, same greed, different product.
