Article about why we should be excited about $8/gal gas. Most of it sounds like hippie propaganda to me. I bet this guy drives a fucking h2 or some bullshit. I really don't think he considers all of the alternatives to what this will cost. Public transit=higher taxes to fund Newer technology in cars=high vehicle prices confining people to local areas will lead to higher crime rates in the cities, overpopulation, more polution, overcrowding. god, look at cities like Mexico city and Beijing. They are dumps. Financial discipline=not gonna happen. people just aren't smart enough. $8 gas changing discipline is like saying taking away abortions will make people stop fucking. Easing global tensions? this guy is a fucktard. there has been global tension since dinosaurs. there will always be tension, gas is a minor issue compared to religion, elitism, and cross culture relations.
