ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the idea of energy independence and discusses myths regarding it. High oil prices have refueled discussion of energy independence, but the numbers reveal that the vaunted goal is an illusion. The article claims that statements such as "the west can stop relying on imported oil," "less foreign oil means lower prices," "the United States should burn less coal" and "energy conservation is the solution" are wrong. The author agrees that nuclear power is making a comeback and that this is a positive development. In the long run, the author believes that new energy technologies will save us.
