I've been hammering Obama for his energy policies like alot of others. Assuming I knew everything about world supplies his policies seemed, well, suicidal. But what if I *didn't* know everything about world supplies but the President did know everything about world supplies? There are articles on Drudge and other sites tonight suggesting that the government has been concerned with the possiblity that Saudi reserves have been overstated by approx. 40%. Meaning there may be only about 60% what we thought was under the sands of Saudi Arabia. Perhaps the U.S. government can extrapolate to a time in our nearish future where foreign reserves are depleted. Maybe these guys want solar and wind because they know there isn't going to be much else in another 25 years (for instance). Maybe its a no-kidding necessity to move the economy away from a hydrocarbon base. Doctrine in the USA has long been to expend foreign reserves first, our own last. What if that end-game were alot closer than we thought? Could there me a method behind the solar, wind and rail madness?
