Put 100% Government tax on the oil.

Make it around $7 or $8/gallon for the next 10 years. Price can be raised gradually. Keep this price for next 10 years. Go through this pain once and for all.

Use the tax dollars, (several hundred billion dollars/year) on research and development for hydrogen fusion. Bring in hundreds of thousands of top notch Western scientist and tecnologists to the US.

In less than 10 years there will be not only alternative but commercial business. With that kind of money and focused effort put unto single cuase will produce 100% of all cars fusion based.

Then we can say ... go drink your oil.

We have the most valuable natural resource, "creativity". ...

Yes, it is possible and probable.
