I recently began reading Paul Krugman's New York Times Op/Ed pieces on a regular basis, thanks to a feed from The Unofficial Paul Krugman Archive. I find Krugman's opinions remarkably well put and down-to-earth, particularly when it comes to issues like oil dependence, the war in Iraq, and the Bush administration. In a recent piece on the current oil crunch, for example, he concludes with a simple idea -- but an idea that few seem to grasp when searching for solutions to our growing predicament. "So what should we be doing?", he asks. "Here's a hint: We can neither drill nor conquer our way out of the problem. Whatever we do, oil prices are going up. What we have to do is adapt."
