The Oil Drum: New York City

Blood, Sweat and Tears

Our dependence on foreign imported oil since 1970 when the US hit its own peak production has resulted in the shedding of much blood in the Middle East, much sweat in trying to maintain the supply of oil and the tears of many people on both sides who have lost people in this struggle to keep oil prices as low as possible.

Bob Herbert writes a great column on the real neo-con agenda in Iraq while the main editorial page of the NYTimes laments the lack of imagination in the current joke of an energy bill that will likely be passed by Congress before the end of its current session.

And this could just be the beginning of a long stuggle that will go beyond Iraq. Think of how much energy and resources we could have poured into R&D, creating large scale wind and solar farms in some of the more desolate areas of the country. North Dakota could be the new Saudi Arabia. With solar, Arizona could generate the equivalent of the Hoover Dam. We have all the energy we need to accomplish this now and unless we start building for the post oil energy future, the death spiral will continue.
