Ending Our Oil Addiction: Reality Check
Raymond Kraft


The solution Democrats and Environmentalists propose for rising fuel prices is, as we all know,“biofuels,”“sustainable fuels,” the Holy Grail of the Greens. Yesterday, I heard Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, once more call for “ending our oil addiction.” But if we look a little closer, it soon becomes apparent that the Democrats and Greens cannot possibly have worked out the logistics of ending ouroil addiction, which are mind-boggling indeed. Unless they have, of course, and are desperately clinging to a total denial of reality, just as middle America clings to its guns and God.

To preface, most of the raw data about biofuels that I use to make the calculations below comes from the article,“Green Dreams: Making Fuel From Crops Could Be Good For The Planet - After A Breakthrough Or Two,” in National Geographic, October 2007. I am making the assumption that the data in National Geographic is reasonably accurate, for National Geographic has a reputation to maintain.
