t r u t h o u t - Bush Urges Action 'Now' on Energy

t r u t h o u t - Bush Urges Action 'Now' on Energy:

I wonder if this was the day we all started to wake up. the Americans have stopped buying SUVs, big Fords and GM vehicles and started using small energy efficient toyotas. I will write more on England a bit later, since the environment finally hit the agenda on Today in a very big way.

the truth is we are all going to have to adapt to a less expensive lifestyle. If the politicians won't tell us the oil prices will. This was the day the media told it like it is.

"Bush, whose energy plan has been stalled in Congress for four years, is facing increased pressure from Democrats and a coalition of conservatives to do much more to promote alternative energy sources and more efficient vehicles this year. Some say the president should set aside, or scrap, his Social Security plan and dedicate his second term instead to dramatically restructuring the way Americans power their businesses, homes and cars. They cite the confluence of three events as reason to act immediately: the steep rise in oil and gas prices, increased U.S. dependency on the oil-rich Middle East and skyrocketing demand for oil in China and India"
