Gas is expensive[*2] . And it's won't be getting any cheaper. Why? Wal-Mart. I'm serious - gas is expensive because the emerging economies of Asia, led by China, are using more and more energy resources.[*3] All the sudden, President Bush's call for hydrogen-powered cars[*4] doesn't seem quite as frivolous as some commented after the 2003 State of the Union address[*5] . The key is alternative methods of electricity generation. Time to reconsider nuclear power plants[*6] ? Or how about the new, high-efficiency solar panel technology[*7] ?
That's it this morning. Go out and play, everyone, it's Saturday.
