Demand it! Demand actions against a second Pearl Harbor
Japanese surprise attack, Pearl Harbor burning. It's just happening again in total slow motion. The increasing oil price makes everything oil dependent worthless because unpayable.
What is the value of a today new gasoline car, when the oil prices increase with the same speed for the next years? The fast increasing oil price makes the new car worthless. It does not matter if bombs or unpayable gasoline prices make a car unuseable. Both make scrap out of a new gasoline car. So let's look back in history what happened after December 7th 1941.
After Pearl Harbor, the US increased the military expenses from 1.7% GNP to 38% GNP in 1944. The US government trusted the calculations and theories of some physicans and invested billions into the Manhattan project to built atomic wappons. 1941 existed not enough penicillin to heal a single human, only enough for 5 labor mice. 1945 was the penicillin production big enough to save the lives of several hundred thousand soldiers.
The war was won at 2 fronts against imperial Japan and NS Germany.
Now we hava again a dramatic situation. The IEA - International Energy Agency - made always prognoses about increasing oil production. In a very dramatic interview April 2008, the IEA declared all earlier prognoses for waste paper. Minus 3.7 to 4.2% less oil production per year, delivery problems and extreme prices.
Now we need a new Manhattan program. Now we need again the built up of a new industry to solve our problems. Photovoltaic and plug-in hybrid cars are the new super wappons to win also this war.
