energy efficiency

Reader comment on: Q&A with JPC Fellow David Frum on Energy Security

Submitted by Douglas Charles (Puerto Rico), Apr 11, 2012 09:40

This situation unfortunately will not go away. High energy costs will ultimately be responsible for the return to N.A. of many manufacturing jobs that have gone east/west, however you see it. In many cases it will be the high shipping costs that will be the cause. In addition, it is only through higher taxes on fuel that the federal governments will have an opportunity to generate additional revenue that could ultimately create incentives for transportation infrastructure to replace the gas guzzling automobile.As well, we are already seeing the creation of infrastructure in wind and solar that will also reduce the need to use oil to generate electricity. We must bite the bullet in order to provide a future for the next generation. The responsibility falls on our generation to curtail the greed and accept less in order to eventually provide more.
