When Bob Dole was running for President, he asked the oilman T. Boone Pickens to head up his campaign in Texas. In return Pickens wanted to write the energy policy that Dole would put forward. Dole replied "Right there, on the floor, that's a sleeping dog. Politicians don't kick sleeping dogs. Bill Clinton doesn't give a damn about energy and I don't either. We're not either one of us gooona kick a sleeping dog and so energy will not be an issue in this campaign. But in case one of us stumbles over the dog, and if one of us has a problem, you will be the guy who advises me" (Chicago Tribune 7/14/08).

It is estimated that there are between 5 and 50 million species of plants and animals existing on planet earth.   We have organisms that can survive temperatures that can boil an egg, and animals that swim comfortably in freezing water.  There are grasses and cacti that can survive incredible droughts.  Every plant can be thought of as a tiny energy producer, and each animal or bacteria a tiny recycling facility.  This diversity ensures that even if living conditions change dramatically, life will still continue.

Life exists everywhere, distributing energy production over the widest possible area.  If one part of the energy system is destroyed, production continues in other parts.  This design is incredibly stable and efficient, boasting an enviable track record of success - 3.8 billion years worth.
