Middle Eastern Oil Dependence
I personally think there would be a lot of value in it for us to eliminate our dependence on Middle Eastern oil - or, rather, on oil in general. I think we ought to spend a few billion a year on basic research in photovoltaic materials. Ditto for fuel cells and a few other areas. Of course it is not a sufficient solution to the problem posed by the Muslims. But I honestly do not see any one single total solution. Even combinations of many differnet tactics will not in sum total eliminate all the threat from catastrophic terrorism.
