  • Niccolo Machiavelli

    I tried Glenn, I tried to read that piece in the Sun, but it is the Sun and I have my expectations and standards. I read it as fast as I could and I might have missed something. But what was interesting to me, maybe thats what you found interesting too, was that there was no reference to taxing oil in any way. Did I miss something or was this just another feel good piece about how no one has to sacrifice anything and there are a bunch of technological fixes that will solve this. Like the Ethanol stuff, how do you pay for the government piece? Did I miss something? Maybe its my computer, it just doesn’t ever print anything on energy taxes. Maybe I can get it fixed, or maybe if it was running on wind power or geo-thermal.

    … or powered by the Sun?

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

  • Niccolo –

    What I found interesting is that everyone can somehow agree that foreign oil is bad, but no one can articulate a vision of how we will achieve a high quality, low energy civilization after oil peaks and becomes extremely expensive.
