    We (the pot) are calling China (the kettle) black?

    Gas prices aren’t falling because the Fed is printing $trillions out of thin air to cover Obama’s deficits and that’s destroying the value of the dollar. Inflation shows up in commodities first.

    @Ms. Ima

    “Wait until China demands we give them Alaska. And O will compromise and give it to them.”

    Maybe he will modify the compromise and give them you. You should be happy; then you wouldn’t have to blame Obama for all your unhappiness, and I’m sure you will be impressed at what a better society the Chinese have built for themselves. We’ll expect a full report. Make sure you have your passport ready.

    My gas prices fell because I got a smaller car and drive less.

    Wow, an up-and-coming society is using a lot of resources. Shocker! Don’t they know that only America deserves to advance?!

    One glass, two straws is going to drain it quick.
    Reminds me of America when young, sure can drink fast.

    I keep seeing comments about how China is going to demand we pay them all at once. First of all… unless China does to us what we did to Nicaragua in 1905 when we sent the Marines to raid their gold reserves because they refused to pay their debt to the US gov’t, that isn’t going to happen.
    Until the Chinese know how to hack our computers to locate our nuclear subs, take out our satellites, and generally shut down our infrastructure, they have no more interest in turning the earth into a glowing radioactive ember than sane Americans do. If we work on our infrastructure, we can defend ourselves from that threat. If our job creators create some jobs, we can make our nation strong financially, and if we make our children healthy, we can be strong physically as well.
    Oil is finite. We need to educate our people and make patent laws more friendly to innovation and invention.

    But here’s the problem — both China and India are developing large — or at least larger — middle class economies. Those economies will eat up resources, especially coal and oil. Oil will become more expensive, and the burning of coal and oil will further pollute our world. No partisan politics is required here — in my opinion, these are just facts. The question is what do we do about it?

    SOooo, We have a greater oil reserve than Saudi Arabia, but we still import oil for our use and export what we produce. Makes sense!

    US energy policy has always been to use everyone else’s oil first. That way, when everyone else is out, we have our own supply. Too bad it will be obsolete by that time; even if we stay behind the times on alternative energy, we’ll eventually make it to wind, solar, desalination, etc, making oil less relevant and its prices less volatile.

    @lonecat

    You ask the right question, Lonecat.
    Education, science, innovation, and invention combined with a new attitude on how to use our finite resources are the ONLY answer. It would be surprising if you don’t have some ideas on the details of your own, Lonecat. We would probably find much agreement on many of them. Thank you for the reasoned comment.
    Respectfully,

    Maybe we should pass some laws that forbid exporting our oil, keep it all for domestic use.

    The Fed doesn’t print money. Never did, never will. They can only lend. Only the Treasury Dept. can print money. You can confirm this on Google in a few seconds.

    It’s ALL Obama’s fault. I can’t for a second imagine how, but Fox ‘news’ says it’s Obama’s fault so it must be Obama’s fault. The black guy did it. That’s what they say.

    I’m not opposed to fission power, but the more it’s used, the more accidents there will be. I’m not sure the people of Fukushima would say that the reactor just burped. It’s facile rhetoric to reduce the severity of a problem by using a mild word for a serious problem. And of course the problem of storage has not been completely solved. Still, I fully expect that there will be more fission reactors built. Fusion — well, I’ve been hearing since the late 1950s that fusion power was just around the corner, that it was just an engineering problem, but here it is more than fifty years later and we still don’t have it. Maybe it is just around the corner, and if so maybe the whole energy problem will be solved, but it’s too soon to bank on it. I bet if all the money that has been put into fusion research had been put into researching solar and other alternatives, we would be way ahead by now.
