News and Notes - July 18, 2008

Feature Article

OPEC's sheiks must think Americans are stupid's+sheiks+must+think+Americans+are+stupid&articleId=99df355b-cedf-44eb-8bf1-66b277bd3262

This opinion piece takes OPEC and its comments of the last month to task. My favorite line in the article is “They say we live in an Information Age but where energy is concerned it's more like a Disinformation Age.” This is a sentiment that a lot of us have felt over the last year or so. The author notes the potential of science and new developments contributing to our future energy independence. The article is an obvious jab at OPEC and one that is likely well deserved.
