I really do not understand the hate involved here. Let's assume that climate change is NOT happening. We still have the following facts:
1) Fossil fuels are a limited supply. Maybe enough for another 50 years. Maybe 100. But still limited.
2) We purchase large amounts of oil from countries that, in general, do not like us.
3) If it were not for oil, our interest in the middle east would decline greatly, which would be a good thing. If Muslims want to kill Muslims, that sounds like their problem. There is no "right" side in a conflict like that.
For all of these reasons, we should be decreasing our dependency on fossil fuels. More fuel efficiency and alternative fuels just simply make long term sense, even without considering climate change.
So, what is the problem?
