Dear Mr/Ms Luft, if you are convinced that the US faces a financial meltdown from the effects of high oil prices, I have a solution: get into the laboratory and invent a clean and economical substitute. If that is too much work, convince the billionaires (Gates and Buffet are good men to start with) that instead of spending billions on some ephemeral project such as ending poverty in the Third World, they should donate some of their money to basic scientific research in the field of energy production.

The Google guys pumped $100 million into the design of cheap ($1 per watt) solar cells. It's happening.
