The New York Times' foreign affairs columnist argues that Toyota's hybrid technology and other moves to reducing oil dependancy would be a strategic boon for the US. He frames his argument in very simple terms: that US should reduce it's dependancy on foreign oil by leveraging existing technology and reducing gas consumption by cars and trucks. It sounds as if he would like to see GM punished for creating Hummer. He calls government and business leaders to use more non-gasoline power sources including flexible fuel cars and hybrids that could also be charged overnight to run just on electricity. The multiple Pulitzer Prize winner believes this strategy, also called the geo-green strategy, would strengthen the dollar, reduce the trade deficit and put the US in the leadership position in green technologies while reducing climate changing pollutants.
