U.S. energy interests desperately need to maintain influence in the energy rich middle-east and Caspian regions. They are using the only power they have left: terror.
Meanwhile, the energy everyone is fighting over is being wasted at a ridiculous rate by the inefficient auto-and-sprawl system.
Great profits are reaped from this system, but they are NOT REAL PROFITS. They do not account for the costs to the environment.
To sum up: the human race is wasting lives and resources to preserve a system that wastes energy and destroys the environment.
Wake up. Put and end to autosprawl. The cause of war is parked right outside on your street. Join the fight for free public transit.
