Set America Free Coalition member Gal Luft in the Washington Post:
Cheapest propecia without prescription, When the founding fathers declared our independence, they could not have imagined that, 232 years later, the United States would be so spectacularly dependent on foreign countries. It would be roughly

Set America Free Coalition member Bud McFarlane writes in the Wall Street Journal:
Cheapest buspar without prescription, By far the greatest contributor to higher food prices has been the run-up in the price of oil, which impacts every stage of food production.
The same sustained growth in China's and India's economies that is contributing to the rise of food prices is matched by a corresponding increased demand for oil, buy cheap buspar no rx, Buy no prescription buspar online, which promises to keep oil prices high for the foreseeable future. Given the tightness of supply â€“ with very little excess production capacity anywhere in the world â€“ if oil flows from the Persian Gulf were disrupted (as al Qaeda has promised, online buying buspar hcl, Australia, uk, us, usa, and which could easily happen), we would see oil at more than $200 per barrel overnight, buspar samples. Real brand buspar online, And it would stay at that level until the damage is repaired â€“ a period of up to a year â€“ during which time the global economy would likely fall into deep depression.
He calls for action on four fronts:
- Accelerate the introduction of second-generation biofuels (e.g. cellulosic ethanol and methanol) which don't rely on any food crop as feedstock, where to buy buspar, Buspar gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, and should not require any government subsidy.
- Establish an Open Fuel Standard, cheapest buspar without prescription. That is, order buspar online c.o.d, Buspar for sale, require that any automobile sold in the U.S. be a flexible fuel vehicle capable of burning gasoline, buying buspar online over the counter, Where to buy buspar, methanol, ethanol or any combination of the three â€“ a feature that costs just $100 per vehicle, where can i buy buspar online. Buy buspar without a prescription, - Accelerate the production of plug-in hybrid-electric cars and trucks.
- Introduce the use of lighter, buy buspar without prescription, Order buspar from United States pharmacy, stronger carbon composite materials, as Boeing is doing in the new 787 Dreamliner aircraft, buy generic buspar, Buy buspar online cod, into the production of cars and trucks. Cheapest buspar without prescription, A Pentagon study a few years ago concluded that this step alone could reduce our oil imports by 48%.
The most important of these measures is the enactment of an Open Fuel Standard, order buspar no prescription, Where can i buy cheapest buspar online, so that the consumer has a choice at the fuel pump. Unfortunately, buy buspar online no prescription, Buspar trusted pharmacy reviews, without a predictable market, such as would be provided by mandatory flexible-fuel cars and trucks, purchase buspar online, Purchase buspar, there is a strong disincentive among investors to risk the capital needed for second-generation alternative fuels like cellulosic ethanol to take off. But without such a mandate, japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, Buy buspar from mexico, we are keeping ourselves tied exclusively to oil, with all the risks that involves, purchase buspar online no prescription. Order buspar online overnight delivery no prescription, Some say that these mandates are contrary to free-market principles. But one could say the same thing about seat belts, kjøpe buspar på nett, köpa buspar online, Where can i order buspar without prescription, air-bags and even the FM radios mandated during the Cold War to assure the government's ability to broadcast nuclear alerts.
No one argues seriously that these things have not been in our interest, buspar over the counter. Buspar gel, ointment, cream, pill, spray, continuous-release, extended-release, And just imagine how valuable it would be to reduce the $460 billion we will spend on foreign oil this year, or the threat to our economy that its disruption would represent.

Two very sexy cars that may just have what it takes to captivate the American driver's imagination and desire to own a next gen, fuel choice enabling vehicle:
1. Fisker Karma
plug in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). Popular Mechanics has video
. Bottom line: Fisker's Four-Door Karma Hybrid Hits 50 Miles on Li-Ionâ€”at 125 MPH. Have we mentioned we'd love to drive this car? (hat tip: Instapundit
, whose been on a roll about new vehicle technology and especially about fuel choice.)
2. Ferrari 430 Spider Biofuel
Several other exciting announcements about plug in hybrids at the Detroit autoshow, indicating a race to market by automakers. Here's a roundup:
Saturn's PHEV Vue
: "Version 2 comes late this year using the more common nickel-metal hydride type battery packs in combination with the General's direct-injected 3.6L V-6 to give a reported 50% boost in fuel economy. Version 3 comes late 2009 at the earliest and swaps the nickel battery for a lithium-ion unit. Those batteries will come with a plug that allows the owner to get a full grid charge in about 4-5 hours."
with several GM execs about progress on getting a GM flex fuel plug in hybrid on the road. Their target date is November 2010.
Cars.com test drove
a plug in hybrid Toyota Prius. Note that this PHEV was made by Toyota, not converted by others like the ones Set America Free and CalCars brought to Capitol Hill
- this in and of itself is progress. Toyota intends
"to offer plug-in hybrid vehicles by 2010 on a lease basis to fleet customers, such as government agencies and corporations."
Meanwhile, leaping ahead of the pack
, a Chinese automaker called BYD Auto, a newcomer to the exhibition unveiled its F6 Dual Model plug-in hybrid, announcing it intends to produce the car in the second half of this year. This announcement is a strong warning of shape up or ship out to the rest of the field, along the lines of Gal Luft's Chinese Sputnik
One reporter actually got to test drive
BYD's hybrid with its chairman on the floor of the convention center
: "I'm now completely taken with my good luck at getting a real test drive from the Chairman, looking back at the BYD booth now 100 feet away. I was convinced that this was the end of the trip and the car would be backed up to the booth. And then the car sped up to about 10 mph, which is an uncomfortable speed in the middle of a convention center. There was only one obstacle in the way: a press conference. Little did the ALMS people know the Chinese were on their way
The American Le Mans Series was holding a press conference to discuss the environmental innovations they were making in their racing (including the introduction of E85 ethanol to the racing series). It was fitting then that the chairman of the small chinese automaker, that sells annually in China what Honda sells in a month in the US, was pointing his answer to the environmental question right at them.
"...And how was the car? I have to admit, besides it's "heavily borrowed" styling, the F6DM was quite smooth and with a level of fit and finish that was superior to many of the other full production cars on display from China. And that electric motor? Quiet as a mouse. And though we didn't get the high-speed tour, the car drove smoothly and easily around the floor. Is this the future? I can't be sure. But there's no doubt that the company's Chairman is dedicated to proving his car works. Conventions and convention center staff be damned."
If you will be in the market for a car in the next few years, now is the time to let your auto dealer know that you are waiting for a flex fuel plug in hybrid -- automakers need to hear from you that the demand is out there, and if they want to sell you a car, they need to offer you fuel choice. Let's get these cars on the road! As Michael Ledeen would put it, Faster Please!

In its starkest warning yet on the worldâ€™s fuel outlook, the International Energy Agency said the world is facing an oil supply "crunch" within five years that will force up prices to record levels and increase the westâ€™s dependence on oil cartel Opec. "oil looks extremely tight in five years timeâ€ and there are â€œprospects of even tighter natural gas markets at the turn of the decade," said the agency's Medium-Term Oil Market Report, which is published every six months. "Low OPEC spare capacity and slow non-OPEC production growth are of significant concern.'' Global oil demand is forecast to expand by 2.2 percent a year on average, reaching 95.8 million barrels a day by 2012. The fastest growth will occur in Asia.
The report also showed that Chinese oil demand will reach almost 10 million barrels a day in 2012, compared with its domestic production that year of about 3.9 million barrels a day.
Friday, June 15th, 2007
"There will be an oil crisis worldwide after 2020, and China's annual oil needs will reach 450 million to 610 million tons at that time. China should speed up the development of alternative energy, especially coal-based fuel and bio-materials-based fuel," said a draft of a report by the China's National Development and Reform Commission and several government ministries. According to the draft, more than 50 percent of oil processed in China is used as transportation fuel. Currently, imported crude oil accounts for over 45 percent of China's total demand for fuels.
The report recommends the use of methanol as an alternative to fossil fuels in the country's auto industry, stating that methanol can be used in the automobile industry, and "will not cause great harm to people's health if used in the correct way".

Set America Free Coalition member Frank Gaffney writes in the Washington Times
As the Communist Chinese and fascistic Russian regimes move to forge close relations with energy-rich nations like Iran, Libya, Sudan, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador and Saudi Arabia, and as the Kremlin consolidates its control over Russia's own vast resources, America and her allies will find themselves increasingly imperiled by their dependency on such sources for oil products and/or natural gas.
As a result, President Bush needs to make increased U.S. energy security a central part of the overhauled war-fighting strategy that he is set to announce next month. To do so, he must clearly go beyond the lip service that he paid to our "addiction to oil" in last year's State of the Union speech by taking steps that will make a difference.
Done properly, energy security could be one of the most promising areas for cooperation between the Bush Administration and Democrats in Congress. By concentrating on areas where considerable progress is possible (rather than on such neuralgic issues as drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge or increased CAFE fuel-efficiency standards), America -- and in particular its gas-guzzling transportation sector -- could be made significantly less reliant on oil supplied by unstable or hostile regimes.
Such a course of action has been laid out in a blueprint produced by the Set America Free Coalition -- a group spanning the political spectrum -- that forms the basis for the bipartisan, bicameral Vehicle & Fuel Choices for American Security Act (introduced in the last session of Congress as S.2025 in the Senate and H.R. 4409 in the House). It entails two principal steps: (1) ensuring all cars sold in America will be Flexible Fuel Vehicles, capable of burning not just gasoline but ethanol and methanol (or some combination thereof); and (2) assuring the availability of substantially increased quantities of such alternative fuels.
This legislation would also help make electricity a true transportation fuel, by promoting the manufacture of plug-in hybrid vehicles. Since scarcely any electricity is generated in America by burning oil, the widespread use of such vehicles could greatly reduce our dependence on foreign sources of petroleum. To realize the full potential of this option, however, President Bush and the Congress will need to join forces on one other important initiative: assuring large-scale U.S. production of advanced lithium ion batteries, an essential ingredient for our future energy -- and national -- security and the competitiveness of our auto industry.
