    In the mean time we can put together a logical plan to exploit solar, and wind generating and use some of the money we waste on foreign

    aid to retrofit coal fired power plants so they are as clean as natural gas, or convert them to natural gas.

    Expand the use of Solar power for hone use by giving tax breaks for its installation and use.

    I would also mandate the better use insulation in all construction of new homes and the installation in older homes.

    There are other ways we can come up with ways to save on the use of power.

    If I can come up with this imagine what a genius could do.
    We have hit peak oil if we think that SS is a big drain on our economy wait another 20 years and see how much a gallon of gas will cost, we need to increase our reserves and hold on to our oil while pushing hard to develop a dependable alternative fuel

    I like these ideas of yours

    The price of gas can be significantly reduced almost overnight if speculating is made illegal as it should be not just on oil but on any life essential product

    Old cars, those with engines built to run on leaded gas, can run unleaded without damage, especially if they were run on leaded for a long time prior to using unleaded. And when the time comes to replace the heads, the shop can make the necessary changes to run the car on unleaded.

    Gasoline has ONE purpose, to be burned in our vehicles....
    Natural gas has multiple purposes, it can be burned in our cars, our houses, our factories, our stores, our power plants, etc.
    Consider what happened in Texas last winter. The supply lines for natural gas must be kept at a certain pressure for adequate delivery to larger customers, but many thousands of small customers, home owners wanting to keep warm, used too much and the supply pressure dropped beyond a point that would keep Combined Cycle Gas Turbine plants running, so electricity supply was reduced as well.
    With gasoline, only our transportation needs suffer when supply is interrupted. With natural gas, we not only don't have fuel for our cars, we get to stay home and freeze in the dark as well.

    Architecture 2030 is a newly proposed building code that will do for structures what we have already done for cars, make them a lot more efficient.
    Reducing demand thru efficiencies, aka conserving, needs to be the primary part of our energy planning,

    info on the Bakken :

    The Oil Drum | The Bakken Formation: How Much Will It Help?

    If 500 million barrels turns out to be the ultimate recovery, the recovery factor would range from 0.13% to 0.25% of estimated oil in place. This very low percentage recovery of the estimated oil in place is not unreasonable if one considers that many of the more marginal areas of the field are likely to be deemed sub-economic and will never be drilled and produced. Technology improvements that will inevitably be made during an era of high energy prices will undoubtedly render some of this more marginal oil recoverable, but the total recovery is still likely to be low.

    Except that's a flat out lie.

    There is no way to do this without nationalization. US production simply cannot force the global supply to increase to the point where it can not only overcome the rise in global demand, but overcome it to the point where supply is in such abundance that price dramatically fall. The only way Bachmann could do this is nationalization or bombing every country which uses oil back into the stone age to kill off their demand.

    No, the crash rests on the limpdick's shoulders. That would be GWSnotForBrains hisself. Really bad Republican fiscal policies and they have helped the rich get much richer. They'll need it all if the dollar reaches its true value.

    Why don't tell us what you really think?
