Dear Prince Turki Al-Faisal,
I really respect your opinion but in the same time I fully disagree with what you have said regard the US energy independence. I think assuming that people of any nation will depend on our oil forever is fallacious and unreal assumption especially with all the technologies and great science we have today.
Decades ago, we thought it is impossible for people to land on the moon. Now, we laugh at ourselves for being close-minded. Please, Mr. Al-Fasial, we don’t want the history to be repeated again with the same mistake. We have to realize the fact that one day we will run out of oil and other nations are working very hard to find another sources of the energy other than our oil.
