We cannot allow the current economic volatility to reshape our thinking on alternative and renewable energy production. While today's markets show us the signs of our practice of shipping our wealth overseas to purchase petroleum based fuel, even with gas prices dropping, we can never recover the wealth we are giving to other countries. This is particularly true as we view the loss of America based jobs to outsourcing into other countries. Just as we are continually focused upon military strength, we must also band together to remain continually focused upon energy sources, energy production within our own country, the retention of American dollars within our own country, job production for American citizens through American energy production, and the security this gives our country. We must be able to understand and view the creation of alternative and renewable energies within the United States of America as a national security top priority agenda item.
