>>It is as if there were a big asteroid due to hit
the earth on 20 years and make a lot of folks
extinct... and we have 5 years in which known
technology will be able to make a course correction.
The US election and early Administration choices of
the next year will control most of that 5 years.<<
--You're assuming US politics controls consumer
behavior, and that other nations won't fill the gap
and produce better technology. US consumers have shown
that they are perfectly willing to buy foreign-made
products if they are superior and more economical. As
gas prices go up, the market will change, regardless
of who is responsible for innovation. If the US
refuses to innovate, it will just lose its share of
the future market.
