In a Catch-22, if oil prices come down, politicians are put under less stress to bring them lower, and thus alternative sources of energy become less attractive. Keeping oil prices higher therefore becomes a necessity in developing and marketing new energy technologies.

The Bush White House has from day one underplayed environmental risks associated with the use of fossil fuels. Global warming might be the catalyst, but if we wait too long, we will be unable to stave off its worst effects. To wean the US off petroleum, energy alternatives which don't require much energy to grow or process are needed, alongside a good (but not suffocating) amount of government subsidies, with the near-term goal to be commercially viable.
