The old one-two

As I write this, the third-most powerful hurricane in recorded history is barreling toward Texas, taking aim at all the refineries that Katrina missed. Experts are predicting gasoline prices could jump to $4 to $5 per gallon by next week.

My take? Well, we've got to be weaned from fossil fuels somehow. I personally expected it to be a gradual process, but maybe being pummeled by hurricanes until the oil infrastructure is destroyed will be a more effective motivator for alternate energy sources. Or maybe this time next year we'll all be living in caves.
