1. It seems that more and more "underdeveloped" countries are trying to be more like us.

Which includes increased consumption of all manner of resources, when what needs to happen if for us to look at more sustainable practices observed by low impact societies and adopt these.

It's a problem of values, and trying to shift these both in our country and elsewhere.

Also, you're spot on in separating fuel from non-fuel based sources. Thus, ethanol is not an answer.
