Yes, I think that we are not putting the proper funding into researching new energy because we are beholden to the lobbyists for the existing power structure.

Remember back in 2000, Cheney held a conference on energy policy and refused to name who was in the room with him?

Yep, I remember that, and I think the voters are remembering that today too. Hopefully they will shout their rememberance on the 4th.

@chris – that was an excellent documentary that you listed. I was very angry after watching it and I was appalled at the behavior of the U.S. government and the oil companies.
