This website is intended to provide sound technical information, not to promote a political agenda. When we stray from this orientation, our readership is quick to point out the folly.

Ivan Hall for Governor of California, less a lesson in politics (there is no possibility that this candidate will win the recall election) and more a call for action in the context of the coming global oil crisis.

What is the connection between energy and politics? Read from Tom Brokawís exclusive interview with the president-elect
George W. Bush on Next Four Years
Tom Brokaw: You talk a lot about the energy crisis, but youíve talked about it almost exclusively as the need to produce more energy. Thereís been very little talk about conservation. We have been on a buying and consumption binge in this country.
George W. Bush: Well, I thought ó listen, I believe we need to conserve. I mean, I think we need to have incentives to encourage people to insulate their homes better. I think we need to make sure industry does not, you know, is not wasteful, not question about it.
But Iím realistic. We canít conserve our independence. I mean, you got an energy problem in California primarily caused by the fact thereís no plants, and thereís not enough to fuel the plants if there were new plants. We need to explore natural gas. I mean we need to be moving U.S. product. And so I think the two go hand in hand.
I was reading somewhere the other day, where we can get out of this crisis by more wind. Well, you know, thatís an interesting thought, except our technology isnít enough to capture enough wind to be able to make sure our economy continues to grow. And so I strongly believe in conservation. I believe we made great progress in conservation. But I know if we donít find more product weíre going to have a problem.
