    Cooperation? They are our competitor, period. Just because we turn a blind eye to that reality doesn't mean that the Chinese will. If it is in their interest to develop alternative fuels, then let them experiment. I do agree that it might be useful to share such technology with them, though. That doesn't mean we should be in a rush to do so.

    I have great respect for Lieberman but I think in this case he is too optimistic.

    I know we sure don't want to end up fighting a war with China over oil. It's time we got serious about our energy policy in these United States as a matter of national security:

    You're definitely right about needing to get serious. It's long past time to open up ANWR for starters.

    Yes indeed, and much more offshore drilling off the left coast and in the gulf. We could be nearly independant within 15 years. I can't find where I read that but it was in the last 2 weeks. The liberals will for sure see to it that it does not happen or begin to happen during the Bush administrations tenure.
