Why take this risk when the U.S. can bask in the glory of their oil business for quite a bit longer? The U.S. isn't known for taking BIG risks when it comes to billions. They do on occasion, but not usually in helping the world type business.

They won't sign Kyoto for god's sake.

For someone to believe theres no profit is truly blind
We suck up too much power for a lot of this to be even worth looking into. Like someone said, we suck it up before we can make it.

Wind power for example, I think they did a recent study (I'll try to find it again and scan it) that you'd have to cover the entire state of california in windmills to power california for a few months.

Replaces uses, with saves. And yes. They're saving tons of oil. The only time they tap the oil reserves is to run war machines.

It's similar to the diamond industry. Trillions of diamonds exist, but only 1/100000th are available for purchase, making it seem more rare and worth more. Now if the states owns all the oil left in the world, and only puts 10% for sale, I wonder if that would be profitable?
