Real must-see TV: Energy independence

If you want to know why we need to reduce our dependence on all oil (not just imports), watch these videoo. If you want to know how to do it, watch these videos. If you want to see through the phony plans of McBama, OCain, T. Boone Pickens, Al Gore, and everyone else who is trying to get rich, elected, or both, watch these videos.

The first video is on the C-SPAN site here. It features Anne Korin of the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security, who suggests that the way to achieve energy independence is to make ourselves independent of all sources of oil.  How?  By depriving it of its strategic value.  Ms. Korin has a compelling story and a detailed plan for getting us where she believes we need to go.  The video is a bit over an hour long with Q&A. The talk itself is about a half-hour of very useful and relevant information but the Q&A is just as informative.

The second video, filmed by alternativeenergy.com is on YouTube here; it is a short (about nine minutes) summary of Ms. Korin’s views.

After you’ve seen one (or both) of the videos, read the related OpEd piece that was published in the Washington Post.
