Toward a Post-Oil Future

Shlok’s seem to have taken down his inexplicable attack on the Pickens Plan (a rather sensible plan use more natural gas and windmills, proposed by a man who almost certainly would love to sell us natural gas and windmills), but other sites are also chattering about a Post-Oil Future, where oil is no longer a hegemonic energy source. Slashdot reports that Mercedes wants to be off gas by 2015. At the same time, Scientific Blogging looks at protecting cropland in a world where corn stems are harvested to make ethanol.

Thus functions supply-and-demand, without the false hysteria of peak oil. Now that the tdaxp Plan is being implemented, things are adjusting as they should have years ago.

So is Obama a rock-star or not? And will it help the tdaxp plan?

Weekly Standard can’t seem to decide:

Dean Barnett says “yes,” so Obama (Bush III) will crash like Bush I and Bush II.

Gary Andreas says “no,” so Obama’s likely to loose.

Regardless, at a time that the price of gas is the voters’ top concern, Obama seems to have adopted the tdaxp plan. Supporting high gas prices while providing energy rebate checks is pretty close to what I advocated. I hope America goes for it.
