"It's not an either/or proposition. We need to be doing it all, wind, solar, bio-fuels, nuclear, clean coal, and good-old fashioned fossil fuels, wherever we can get our hands on it. And of course do it as safely and ecologically sensitively as possible. But the more expensive alternatives on all these fronts will only pursued by the markets when prices are high."

The short-sighted policy of drilling more to try to increase supply is wrong headed IMO.

Firstly, the big picture is CO2 emissions and GW. We need to reverse the trend, so drilling more is not helping, in fact counter-productive.

Secondly. it takes many years before a field is productive - the price crisis may have ended before new supply comes on line.

We should focusing efforts on energy efficiency. For oil, that means mainly transportation. Offer more incentives to buy fuel efficient vehicles, to using mass transit, to developing mass transit (public/private).

While the immediate crisis is oil prices, the long term issue is fossil fuel consumption. Pandering to the supply side just continues "business as usual" and worsens our ability to solve GW.
