What is going to make more money for your politicians in the short term. That you, the US, continues with your current lifestyle (which you won't, by the way) or that you all conserve a bit, recycle a bit and just use less without having to be coerced. God forbid that you should reduce your consumption of energy down to that of, say, the UK or Germany and have to face the lack, the squalor and barbarity of our lives. It would only be a small reduction - a paltry 50%. The latter would obviously make money for your politicians but I'm damned if I can work out how.
