Crude Independence American Oil Dependency

(77 Pages)

 

 

Description: Crude Independence

On November 7, 2007 oil reached a landmark price of $97 dollars a barrel. Crude Independence focuses on “fossil fuel” and the psychological dependence that America fosters with the “muscle car” even though the implications of such have become destructive with the nation. America today imports approximately 85% of its energy.  This stat combined with the low m.p.g. vehicles put the nation at further risk making it more dependent on other nations rather than “independent”.

Rather than deal with the issue squarely we further Immerse ourselves into a more politically charged situations to obtain energy when we have access to the greatest talent and sciences in the world to resolve the “issue of energy”.
