We Need an Oil Glut

Recommended Posts

You know what we need isn't oil at all, what we need is to make every land combustion engine an electric one. We have the tech to do it now, but what we don't have is the will to do so nor the power over the oil countries and corporations to make it happen.


What the world really needed was not an Iraq but a total conversion over to electric powered cars. It could easily have happened with those billions, and would have spurned huge business opportunities. Of course, we instead chose the path of war for a variety of reasons I'll not bother to get into.


Course, thinking back to an old topic long ago in the arena, M. Porcius Cato might have a few different big business counter opinions. :P
