Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All I am saying is that the US has the natural resources to make it through the transition on its own, which the EU doesn't.

And the US population seem to still be rather densely concentrated, and mostly near waterways.

People may need a car, but not a big car. The problem is that people are not being encouraged now to increase the fuel efficiency of their vehicles, or to reduce the number of vehicles per household. The US vehicle fleet could be replaced at the normal pace in what? 10, 15 years?

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
