The website Moonbattery has a nice analogy between our problems with oil and the problem of enduring enough to eat:
If we really are sick of high oil prices, maybe it's time to stop indulging in moonbattery and do something rational about the problem. If food prices were getting high, what would we do:
- Chastise ourselves for being addicted to food?
- Chew on bark and twigs instead of eating?
- Accuse farmers of profiteering and drive them out of business with punitive taxes?
- Increase the supply of food?
