Neil, the politicians will make money no matter what the American people do. If we continue on our current path of maximum consumption, short term they have Cap and Trade and possibly a Carbon Tax. If we cut down on use and move to the new *green* technologies, we will pay through the nose for those new technologies. Heck, maybe they'll create a new *Green tax*.

The thing to understand about America is we never cut down and politicians know that. Though there are some of us who use less because we're more prudent, most people will continue down their current path and just pay more. If by some chance we all did cut down and start conserving without adopting new technologies, no problem, they'll just raise the price. Politicians never lose.
