Call for U.S. Government and All in Leadership Positions to Address the Coming Energy Crisis

A plea to federal, state, and local U.S. government officials, As well as industry leaders, community leaders, scientists, inventors, food production experts, transportation experts, financial experts, urban planners, medical experts, and all others with expertise to bring to bear on the problem detailed below.

As all of you know, our current economy is based on the availability of cheap oil. Cheap oil is
the basis for our food production (fertilizer and machinery), food distribution, transportation, heating, our other energy needs, and underpins most of the functions of our economy.

The crisis we are facing is that oil is rapidly becoming more expensive in the face of both growing world demand for oil and shrinking supply, due to the lack of new reserves discovered in recent years and the new information becoming available on previous over-estimation of the capacity of current reserves.

In addition, as the oil that is easiest to extract is depleted, future oil extracted will be the oil that is harder and more expensive to extract, which will also affect oil prices.

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED, CALL FOR A FULL-SCALE EFFORT TO BEGIN NOW TO
ADDRESS THE PROBLEM OF THE DAYS OF CHEAP OIL COMING TO AN END.

Notice too how extended the US is. It's government has taken the position that it is the strongest power on the planet and is acting accordingly. For their rationale read the "Plan for the New Century".
Their whole basis for claiming this power for the US is it's having a strong military. But how firm is that foundation. It's military is now manpower strained. IT's military runs on oil. China holds billions of dollars of US IOU's and is mostly likely looking to bring us to our knees. It can do it. Our oil supply is very vulnerable to terrorism. We are in a very precarious position.
