Doesn't it just seem rational that if we had x dollars to spend on scraping the bottom of the barrel for more oil - or - for getting a head-start on the inevitable (no more fossil fuel), it should be spent on the long-term view, and not the short-term?
I'm often amazed that combinations of Hydro-electric, Windmills, solar power and other 'clean' sources haven't scaled up to really useful levels yet. (And then there's nuclear power - which I'm ambivalent about. I love the fact that GW Bush pronounces it "new-kyu-ler". Makes him out to be even more of a moron.)
