A combination of the two have to be used to tackle problems. The free market on its own cannot solve all, an energy crisis is looming for all of us, and eventually the government is the one everyone turns to in those times anyway because it is a great irony for many conservatives who say less government this, less government that, and then when there's a crisis like Katrina or the oil spill "GOVERNMENT SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT"!
As so when the coming energy crisis comes and prices go through the roof, who will be to blame? The government who allowed themselves to be bought off as well as the private sector for keeping everyone on the oil teet and dickheads claiming mandatory fuel efficiency standards is "SOCIALISM!"
So whether its oil companies bribing car companies to not go electric or make their cars more efficient to keep America on the oil teet or claiming clean coal is the way of the future
We're all ****ed, and it's all our faults.
The only crisis that exists now, is the government's over-reaching interference in the private sector.
I think you've bought into too much of the warmer propaganda. You can't start screaming, "energy crisis", after the government has shut down domestic oil and gas production.I'm not doing this to fit any kind of Agenda or tax you more or take over your life apdst, I'm worried about this because it's a genuine threat to all of us.
Part of the reasoning for more renewable energy is national independence. So that our leaders aren't stuck eating out of Saudi Arabia or Egypt's hand in fear. Currently many leaders in the middle east know that they have control over our nation, because they control the oil flow.
Besides, we are already seeing hybrids and electric cars (we've been seeing them for decades, but up until recently they have often been suppressed by people on oil company payrolls) that are selling quite well. We're seeing cars that will go over 80 miles on an electric charge alone.
I personally don't have any kind of "green energy agenda." I'm not really sure what that's even supposed to mean. I just would like to see some independence in my country.

There's only so much oil in this world, and only so many places in can be produced and transported around this world, with countries like China gaining more and more affluence, and the world in general, more and more oil is going to be consumed....
Demand will eventually go above production and thats where you get your energy crisis. Come now, this is grade 5 **** we're talking about. There will not be enough oil to last us forever, and when the **** hits the fan, what wil you do then? Everyone will cry to gubmit to save them, as they ALWAYS do.
Government has NOTHING to do with it. I don't care about no Global Warming Legislation.
Yes, because there's enough oil in the gulf to take you off foriegn oil tommorow...I think you've bought into too much of the warmer propaganda. You can't start screaming, "energy crisis", after the government has shut down domestic oil and gas production.
What kind of an argument is this?
