Vote for a democrat majority. We need to get on track with alternative fuels. Once done Middle East is just sand. In 5 years oil will be ld school fuel. But if republicans take control we never get off the oil dependency.

Blame it on me

Why not just procrastinate? Crisis is always a lot of fun, no?

Yes. Oil is a huge issue. Without it the country all but stops. No trucks, planes, cars, motorcycles are moving.

There is a move toward electric cars and bikes but that electricity is mostly from fossil fuels so that won't work. Wind and solar farms are big and ugly so in congested areas that won't work with means almost all of the Eastern one third of the country. Going solar on your house is an option but is expensive and can take up to 20 years to recuperate the expense. It also requires a bank of batteries, which take oil to make, so there is more oil usage. I wouldn't be surprised if the solar panels themselves need oil to make. They certainly need energy from somewhere and something.

What about all the products like plastics and paints that take oil to make?

What about using algae to make oil? They have been making great advances in this area. I like this option the best.

You can make your own ethanol for fuel if you like. Coincidentally you can also drink it and get a buzz. Seems like a waste to use it in the fuel tank for the time and effort it takes to make it.

Coal fired energy plants are being phased out by this Admin and the EPA if they get their way. They might very well be how we get our energy in the future when oil and natural gas becomes prohibitively expensive.
