    That loud noise you hear is Eurogreens, particularly British greens, choking on their nuts and twigs.

    Nothing surprising, the “Jealousy of US” has been the primary motive force of civilization for the past 100 yrs at least.

    Perhaps this will even create a movement where American Heroes are no longer those who can throw balls accurately or crush others, or decide who are victim enough to require others to work as part time slaves and give to them; but are great people who acomplish the seeming impossible to bring wealth and prosperity that sustains our civilization,- -NEHH!

    Yes, we seize those opportunities, then (lately, anyway) we regulate them to death. My husband works in the natural gas fields of Wyoming, for a subcontractor for BP. BP has intimated that it is likely to withdraw from the US entirely within the next 5 years due to regulatory burden. There are other companies who have already capped active natural gas wells in Wyoming. You are right that America is still innovative, but the stubborn declinists you are always so happy to dismiss out of hand have a point, too.
