    Little thing called electricity.

    Also, "smart grids" for delivering electricity produced by these sources to our metropolitan cities must be developed at a very high cost. They presently do not presently exist.

    That's because they needed a place to sell all the condoms. It has nothing to do with automotive petroleum products...

    A better candidate would be a short pipeline to an onshore gas liquefaction terminal, to fill up tankers and transport the liquified product to other terminals for re-gassification.

    Pulling some of the teeth of the Russian bear is all for the good.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    The former happens to be necessary for the maintenance of a large chunk of the modern world as we know it, and currently has no viable alternative on a comparable scale. It's not a habit formed on a whim, It's necessary at this stage, and unlike drugs, the benefits thus far have far outweighed the harm.

    This is demonstrably false; see - solar, wind and electricity.

    It is a habit on which we are dependent.

    Solar, wind, and electricity could not simply replace oil at this stage, given the fact that the vast majority of our transportation is configured to accept oil only, not to mention the fact that a sizable chunk of our machinery and manufacturing industry depends on it as well. Re-configuring our Infrastructure to accept such changes would hardly be an overnight process, nor would it be cost effective in the short term. Alternative energy is a necessity, and should be pursued, but further advancements and study is required in order for those methods to faze out oil as our primary energy source.

    Still quite a poor comparison for the reasons I mentioned previously.

    The US as a whole is producing more oil and gas is it not?

    Which is what I stated is it not?
