It seems to me that people should of been thinking about this a long time ago.

This current recession has been traumatic to many who have lost jobs and struggle to even find work.

According to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, in the period from 1998 to 2007, the salaries and benefits among 100 highest paid CEO's has increased from 3.5 million to 10.4 million annually, while during the same period the working people have seen increases slightly less then the cost of living.

More people are struggling to find work that pays a living wage, transportation is an issue for many when they can no longer afford to travel out of town for work, as there is a real lack of local jobs that pay a living wage or benefits for the working class people.

Seems to me that we should be investing in green technology, to come up with new sources of energy that take into consideration the environment. Sooner more than later, the oil supply could be completely dry and then who will be suffering?
