We should be steadily moving towards decreasing our consumption of oil. That may actually give us independence from oil price fluctuations and shocks.


We need oil for other things and we have global warming. The world consumption of oil is immoral. Unfortunately the USA is a massive contributer to the consumption.

That's too much. We do need to pay ahead for the externalities. A carbon tax would be wise.

If you don't tax carbon, in addition to giving a free ride to externalities, alternative energy cannot compete.

I'm willing to remove the corporate tax to accommodate a carbon tax of equivalent size.
