John Stewart reminds us of the fallacy of energy independence

As is often the case, John Stewart manages to neatly and bitingly summarize what’s wrong with things. In this case, it’s the quixotic effort to achieve US energy independence and the perennial push for renewable energy. Although there has been some recent progress on the renewable technology front, oil is here to stay, and efforts to wean ourselves off of it only seems to lead to a greater percentage of foreign-sourced consumption over time.
