  • Mar 20 2012: Good question. Phi Alpha Brother. They don't do it because there has never been enough pressure to get an energy plan. So we just go along doing what we've always done. Keep in mind, the US does not have a state owned oil company. 70% of all oil in the world is in the hands of state owned oil companies so for the US it is totally market driven. We need more public pressure on Washington
    • Mar 20 2012: I thought it was because they seemed to think it costs a lotta money. At the previous meeting In Denmark (if recall well) It seemed like The US government didn't seem to care much about that. At least, the chinese delegation complained about them.
    • Mar 20 2012: "They don't do it because there has never been enough pressure to get an energy plan" --- with all your money and power why are you NOT putting pressure on Washington to do something that makes more sense? Rather than allowing them to just "go along doing what we've always done" you, one who wants to envoke change should assist with just that. Change - for the better.. not linear.
