Jim Moore posts a Krugman piece on the oil problem, partly as it relates to Iraq. Right on! It doesn’t take a rocket scientist, or leading economist for that matter, to point these things out. So why are our politicians so brain dead when it comes to promoting and developing real alternatives? Not only does it secure economic stability, but guess what? It also goes a long way to solving the environmental issues that are caused by greenhouse gases and fossil fuel consumption. Economists and greenies sitting in a tree? I’d like to see that!
