Energy Crisis Greater Threat Than Terrorism
Rep. John Peterson (R-PA) said Wednesday that the nation’s energy problem “is more important and threatening to America’s future than terrorism.” During an interview on C-SPAN, Peterson stressed the need for Congress to act now to address the nation’s energy crisis. Amid the partisan bickering on Capitol Hill, Peterson and Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-HI) are leading a bipartisan group of lawmakers seeking consensus on energy legislation.

Well, I'm just so sick of ignorant fearmongering and the creation of straw men when we have so many real, practical problems at home already.

Ditto, Jude. Even if there were another large-scale attack, the odds you'd be affected are slim.

Well, since the odds and actual incidence of average Americans being adversely affected by rising energy costs is far greater than that of average Americans being "blown up by a terrorist in a bomb-vest"...

Having enough inexpensive gasoline for your SUV is more important than not being blown up by a terrorist in a bomb-vest? Where's the rationality and logic in that?

I don't think energy is of GREATER importance than terrorism...I think they are very much tied together. If you resolve the energy issue, you help weaken terrorist organizations. I think education/energy/economy/terrorism all influence each other quite a bit.
