CNN video on a survivalist preparing for the worst. (Check out his solar car!)

FOX News article:

“AOMORI, Japan — The world’s top industrialized nations and leading oil consumers pledged Sunday to fight skyrocketing energy prices by increasing efficiency and accelerating investment in new technologies, while urging producers to expand production.”

I hope that the big countries invest big money in alternative fuel research!

Some fear that oil prices could become prohibitive, but everybody is concerned. I imagine that Barbados will soon publish a comprehensive energy plan, possibly mandating the installation of solar water heaters on all new dwellings over a certain value.In the short term, I am concerned that tourism in both Miami and Barbados will take a dive due to the current high fuel prices.
