I came up with an analogy of drug addiction. Both regions are
addicted to oil, the only difference is that Europe acknowledges that
and would like to change (but can't because it is addicted) where as
the US(Texas?) is in denial about being addicted at all and oil use
is not a bad thing, no.
To give an example on a Business show on the BBC there was a piece on
global warming and how it might affect the plants that are grown in
gardens, and what affect it would have on the gardenning industry. I
don't know would that have got air time in Texas?
Also addicts would never want to admit that there source is about to
run out :). Hmm, interesting analogy but not quite the whole truth.
