Can we discuss something we should all agree on but few pols have the sack to face up to? ENERGY INDEPENDANCE If we could put say 10% of what we have already spent on trying to secure middle east oil, while making these greedy oil CEO bastards slovenly rich, wouldn't we have, by now, a liquid fuel made in the USA?? Furthermore, wouldn't that alleviate alot of the tension seen in the middle east? I think so. Some say its too expensive to try. I say its too expensive not to. Ok, so we have a 10% ethanol additive in our gas now and that is all fine and dandy. Thats a drop in the bucket. But what about Cafe standards? Can't we all agree that we need to start producing vehicles that will ease our addiction to oil?? Discuss... renewable energy Its an idea whos time has come!!!
