Thumbs up 20/20 on ABC: Over a Barrel: U.S. Oil Addiction

(Not sure of a good place for this.)
I have a season pass for this show on my TiVo and although many eps don't interest me, this one did since it's about our addiction to oil. They talked covered topics such prices, speculation, pipelines, refineries, offshore drilling, a few projections, how we're not paying the true cost of oil (doesn't include our military spending in the Middle East) and spoke to T. Boone Pickens.

They pointed out a # of facts that some of us here already knew like we consume 25% of the world's oil while making up only 4% of the world's population. I didn't realize that we consume 2x the amount of gasoline that China + India consume combined.

It doesn't look like it'll be rerun in the next 2 weeks but you can watch online right now at http://abcnews.go.com/2020/.

Yep, we better start drilling offshore and all through Alaska. Another 40 or 50 nuclear power plants would help!
