2. Straighten your collar, then
There's plenty of ways to break our dependence on oil, not just foreign oil. But it's not going to happen until the market makes it attractive, and at that point, the cost of oil will be rising so quickly that demand will outrun supply by orders of magnitude.

We've had 30 years and all we've done is complain about Arabs and ridicule alternative energy enthusiasts. We may have all of five, maybe ten years left before the supply/demand price gap becomes critical.

There's been quite a lot of discussion about this on the Environment and Science forum (which has lately been given to discussions of BHT).
