The reality is that alternative energies to power our fossil-fuel vehicles are a strategic priority for global security. Industrialized nations decry their reliance on foreign oil, yet they avoid pragmatic solutions. Dire warnings from economists and national security personnel are ignored. Policies and programs for energy independence are characterized by indifference. Oil prices are linked to international recessions, threaten our core national interests of economic planning, national security, and environmental health, and oil is the mother’s milk of terrorist sponsoring countries.
