We also do not have an adequate public transportation system to move people w/o cars. In Germany we used to hop trains to get from point A to B, strauss cars, bikes, etc. But Germany is also about the size of Virginia and isn't as rural.

What if households decided to reduce the number of cars on the roads? Think the American Way will support that type of change? Also I read somewhere that China is sucking down a lot of oil. Doesn't OPEC use their control over the oil as a way to keep countries in line?

As for the housing prices, count your blessing if you have already purchased! As long as the high paying jobs are here, the prices mostly likely won't go down.

Any readers of New Yorker magazine out there in slug land? I hear there is an article along the lines of "Silent Spring" that claims roundabouts in Vermont will result in global warming. Forecasting dust bowls in Kansas before 2080 and drought in California.
