Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
He is very smart and a complete asshole, sorry to say it so clear.

He knows that the reduction in oil consumption in cars, if there is not control in the offer, will lead to the use of oil in other parts of the economy because of the low prices. Of course, he forgets that hybrids is the technology to use when the quantity of oil is reduced and you want to keep a smooth increase in the prices according to demand and offer.

So he forgets fluctuation effects because he never heard about them. The fact that consuming Hummers will lead to extreme fluctuations in price making hte life of the middle-class awfull... but he does not give a damn.

And now I should go for the asshole stuff. He is an asshole because he is the typical idiot bragging that he knows something when he really did not understand a jot (Migeru put it better than myself in this thread).

Consuming more oil to depend less on Middle East? he is an asshole, the fact that the ratio of oil from the MIddle East is LESS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEIR RELEVANCE IS LESS..  you idiot!!!! This is, if you ever can get very expensive oil from the sources he says.. The canadian oil is some kind of joke when you do not even know the basic facts...

SHHHHH there is nothing like trasing the asshole in the block... it makes you feel better. The author, he just needs a brain transplant... or maybe increase the bribe he may be taking from certain industries (well bribes, bribes.. who says bribes says money from a wonderful consultory that happens to represent a client with strong affiliations to certain industry.. for example).

A pleasure

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
