Energy Crisis in USA - No Plan 'B'

The oil crisis is very, very near. World War III has started. It has already affected every single citizen of the Middle East. Soon, it will spill over to affect every citizen of the world.”- Ali Samsam Bakhtiari, VP of the National Iranian Oil Company

The oil crisis has begun. Last summer’s storm season has exposed the Achilles heel of the U.S. economy, which is dependent on foreign OIL to keep the wheels of industry moving. We have reached what system analysts refer to as a single point of failure. It is the one area that if it breaks down, will bring the entire system down with it. Like it or not the U.S. economy runs on oil—cheap oil—and we are running out of it. Oil powers the U.S. economy in manufacturing, transportation, and agriculture. Without oil, the economy would cease to function. There is no other commodity other than water that can have such an effect on how and what we do. Oil is the lifeblood of the economy.

"With 12 refineries and 21 gas processing plants still out of commission, 90% of our Gulf oil production shut in, 72% of our natural gas production offline, 503 oil platforms destroyed, heavily damaged, or abandoned, energy imports soaring, and a rapid decline in non-OPEC oil production...".

Rethinking Energy - The USA is a "crisis driven society" in urgent need of leadership and direction for its future energy needs.

A Greener World - A Dream Most Possible

"We are faced with two choices. One is a cleaner, safer, more just and equitable world founded on a transformational shift in cultural values and technologies in harmony with the cycles of nature. The other is a world that descends into the darkest period in human history; one -- dare I say it? -- of apocalyptic proportions where people and cultures and nations fight for the last drops of oil before the lamps go out. The first choice rides on the wings of redefined personal values, while the second exploits cultural biases and human fears."
A Greener World - A Possible Dream - -- Bill Moore EV World editor in chief.

Signs of the Time
The storm that is coming is called "global warming." The ship we are on is called 'Titanic," and no one can quite believe that such a fine ship is sinking! The good news is that Solar-powered homes and renewable energy is becoming available, as are clean methods of transportation. The source of all energy has freely given us abundant supplies of the same, which we must learn to harness for everyone on earth to use and benefit from equally and freely. Does such a world exist or do we wait for it to arrive in vain? Rethinking Energy >>

Village Energy Comment - With most of the USA's current power supply coming from coal and other fossil fuels, we need a transition to clean, renewable energy sources that will protect the world's health, environment and quality of life.

A national commitment to clean energy would reduce pollution, create millions of high tech jobs, diversify our nation’s energy sources, add to America's energy security and save billions of dollars. A much-needed transition to solar, wind power and other renewable energy in every region of the United States holds the promise of a better future for us, our children and future generations.
