Who said it?

“I believe historians of the future will look back and see the Iraq war as the first resource war of the 21st century, The US is dependent on oil and was well past peak oil production when the war began. Looking at Iraq, many in the White House saw an opportunity to secure America’s oil supply by creating a friendly government which would be more amenable to providing oil to the US. The US could have secured its energy supply without having to go to war. If Washington had invested one tenth of that money in renewable energy they’d have managed it.”

 

Sir David King, former UK government chief scientist

(but remember, renewable energy doesn’t power cars.  And cars are what its all about.)
