In all this talk of choice, the one thing I don't hear anyone say, on this show or anywhere in government, is that the U.S. way of life is fundamentally unsustainable. Not only are we emitting too many Greenhouse Gases to hope for any kind of climate stability, but our lifestyle is also completely dependant on oil and natural gas. With Peak Oil looming in our immediate future, maybe 5 to 10 years out if you're optimistic, there is no way that the way we live can continue as is. Not only do we need to make choices based on their current impacts, but we should also consider the choices that we will have remaining to us a decade from now.
