This is a year old, but it still rings true. If McCain gets in, we are just going to fall farther behind the rest of the world in terms of technology for both transportation and HVAC.

Ah, well.... I'm feeling a little down today (it is September 11th) and I can't help but think that the possibility of a McCain White House is increasing.

But, I hope it doesn't happen...

Unfortunately, Obama may be just too progressive. It will take a groundswell of young voters to get him in. Even if he loses, Barack will have brought a lot of issues to the forefront.

Can't remember if I've asked this, but is it bad that I really don't mind if gas prices go up? Seems like the only way people will wise up.

Trying to keep cheap gas going is just prolonging the problem.

I agree with George W. High prices are very motivating, and will also make alternatives more competitive more quickly.

I do not think prices and market mechanisms are going to stimulate the changes in technology until it is too late. Solar, wind, geothermal, etc... have not really taken off at this point because politicians and our entire business culture revolves around the fossil fuel economy. The change is going to take federal leadership if we are going to avoid a catastrophe.
