With the cost of gas edging closer to 4 bucks a gallon, the whole economy is experiencing a slowdown. CNN had a special last weekend titled' We Were Warned' about how the American people knew that this crisis was approaching and still did nothing.
Brazil was set up as an example of what a country can do when faced with a hard decision. Brazil looked at the situation three decades ago and found that sugar cane was their best buy - and now they are totally energy independent. Wow!
I think Americans can do this too. Perhaps, we need to hunker down in our own valley and take care of our own, rather than helping the rest of the world - Let's face it, America is in trouble.
