Uh oh. Presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle are talking about how un-American high gas prices are. McCain wants to lower the federal gas tax, insulting Obama in the process. Obama's running ads here in Philly about how he alone can stand up to fat-cat oil companies - raking in record profits while the rest of us have to pay high gas prices - because he doesn't take money from oil companies. (Except that he does.)

How much does the climate have to worsen before we get this right? How many bridges have to collapse, how many suburbs will we let sprawl to the horizon? How long until we admit our addiction to cheap oil, and make the painful but necessary changes to our lifestyles? Apparently, it's going to take at least another four years.
