I've remarked a time or two just how bizarre and self-contradictory our spending priorities have been. Still, I think the point about solar is particularly telling. It's by no means certain, but it seems to me that if we had continued on with conservation and alternative energy in the 1980s, instead of deciding that the best course was to engage in continual war in the Middle East in the name of keeping our oil options open, we probably wouldn't have had an Al Qaeda problem or the last four wars to deal with. Or is it five? I lose track sometimes.
