Today on Andrew Sullivan‘s blog:
The real danger is a newly emboldened Islamist region with a chokehold on the world’s oil…. We can pretend we can affect that outcome, but I fear we cannot. We can only watch and redouble our efforts to get energy from sources other than from a region on the verge of full-scale conflict. (Emphasis mine.)
B.C.’s strategy: redouble our efforts to build more roads, bridges and an urban form dependent on an oil-based transportation system. And then price the system as though it were free.
