U.S. military is the single biggest oil user in the world. As both Obama and Romney continue to support this inherent institution of violence, reducing the use of fossil fuel and thus global warming would seem a moot prospect indeed. A focused political push against military spending is obviously required but is not likely to bear fruit given that the only arena in which the U.S. remains dominant in the world is the military. Americans continue to believe they're "exceptional," let's not forget. Sad.
Oil "security" = "military" security = "US security" = corporate profit for military contractors and Big Oil - a vicious equation. (These terms are under Derridean erasure.)
