    Clark: “Oil reserves in the ground: its like $170 trillion. Its the MOST valuable commodity that’s currently priced in the World. You are going against people who control these reserves. So, this can only be done through a mass movement that overturns the established structure of energy markets. IT CAN’T BE A SMOOTH TRANSITION.”


  2. Bah.  He’s finally getting to issues I wrote about ten years ago.


  3. It’s both interesting and sad that all but one of his alternatives to imported oil are just other liquids.  The interviewer sees fit to include exactly one mention of “electric automobiles” (perhaps it was not the only one, we will probably never know).  Meanwhile, electrified rail, electrified highways… not mentioned.
