So why dont we just do it ?

This sort of thing just seems so painfully obvious to a boy like me - so why as a society do we not simply demand of our leaders that this is what we should do.  Create a safe future for our children, not make them into soldiers to fight over a diminishing resource that is destroying society and environment.

This said - so many opinion polls do actually show that this is what the population want.

So that has to beg the question - why aren't ALL politicians demanding this and giving the people what they want by reducing energy dependancy and risk, improving trade defeceits and lowering the need for oil defending war whilst saving everyone money ...........
