Must C TV: Energy Victory: Winning the War on Terror By Breaking Free of Oil

Archived Video:
Author: Robert Zubrin

About the Program

Robert Zubrin argues that the United States is subsidizing a war against itself because of its dependence on oil, a resource controlled by its enemies. He says that if Congress passed a law requiring all new cars sold in the United States to be flexible fueled, OPEC's control on the world's transportation fuel supply would be diminished. This event was hosted by the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, DC.

Zubrin's idea of mandating flex fuel vehicles goes against libertarian philosophy, but its worthy of consideration for personal purchasing decisions. Here's a list of flex fuel vehicles currently available.
