      Kim - you are right, of course, if you are talking about "now". That's why the
      first word in my posting was "Eventual" - that's where we need to be heading,
      even if it takes a long time. But we'll never get there if we don't get going.

      - We are all Human beings here together. We have to help one another, since
      otherwise there is NO ONE who will help.
      - All countries need a NO REGRETS strategic energy policy. Think ahead 7
