I thought pixie dust was the miraculous substance responsible for the regularly doubling density in computer hard disk drives, but I had no idea it also promised to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels.

It does sound better than Republican options of giving India more nuclear fuel or starting more wars for oil.

Realistically, our best option is reducing demand/ reduucing waste. Another good idea is biofuels, but the equatorial regions are going to have a more stable supply... which is why some more-or-less equatorial OPEC countries are already investing heavily in biofuels like Jatropha even though they've got oil enough to cover their own domestic demands for the forseeable future. When they are closer to meeting their domestic energy demands with renewables, they can export even more oil, and buy even more American strategic assets, like our ports and logistics companies and defense-related industries...
