Reader comment on: The U.S. Can Be Energy Independent
Submitted by Ed Katz (United States), Nov 16, 2010 17:25
Being from Texas, I understand the critical importance of oil and its shortfalls. Although I am naturally opposed to government interference, there is a place for Congress to get involved. Congress could pass legislation to force automobile manufacturers to stop building engines required to use oil exclusively by say 2020. That would give the industry time to make the changes. Then all manufacturing should be turned over to the private industry. If what Gal Luft says is true, old cars would become obsolete and gradual change would occur.
