Oil energy rules are economy ,without energy we cant produce a bag of milk ,a car ,a can of soup ,is this war (Canada) is engaging in about the control of whats left of oil reserves ? we seemed to have peek in our oil retrieving capabilities (the good easy stuff is almost gone and the stuff that takes more time and energy is what 2010 brings

Instead of pouring the money into finding alternatives are we fighting for what's left ?

If this was put to a nations test would you choose to hunt for a alternative or fight for whats left ?
