We’re not really serious about solving the fuel problem…

2 Jul

Many years ago, maybe 30, my older brother told me of an experiment he witnessed as a Sea Bee in the Navy.  He claimed that we watched as a car was driven around and around a track, getting 100 miles to the gallon of regular gasoline.  I wasn’t there, so I can’t vouch for the claim.  But if it was true, and the car was typical of the day- a gas guzzling V8 that normally gets 8 miles to the gallon- why does my Dodge Ram 1500 still only get 15 mpg?

Brazil has perfected ethanol and flex-fuel vehicles (made by Ford), and South America has been using German technology developed in the 40’s since the 50’s to convert coal to liquid fuel. 

Let’s face it, American politicians and some behind the scenes covert organization does not want America to advance in this techno-arena.  Personally, my bet is on the fascists that have taken over the environmental cause as their own to win favor in the eyes of the gods of nature, and the liberal politicians beholden to this fascist group, for some reason only known to themselves.

Look, we don’t need alternative fuels, although having cellulosic ethanol and liquified coal would be a great advancement.  There is enough oil shale in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming to keep our cars running, as it, for 240 years!  North Dakota has the Bakken Oil Fields that will yield a tremendous amount of oil, not to mention ANWR.

So, why are all of the politicians getting on the alt-fuel bandwagon (which is probably a hybrid run on horse manure)?  Big Enviro-fascists!  Let’s build windmills!  Have you ever driven from Phoenix to LA?  You pass by this huge windmill farm with massive windmills, half of which never seem to be working.  Blades are laying on the ground broken, and the site is horrific.  Not in my backyard!  What about solar power?  I remember as a kid seeing solar cells for the first time.  I am now 50, and the technology doesn’t seem to have advanced much. 

I know I sound like a broken record, but it is time to “Drill and Mine US Oil–Buy and Refine US Oil!” (copyright Kelly and Dorthey Knight, 2008)

    yes, as we discussed on Pajamas:

    coal is probably the best way to achieve energy independence FAST

    if only our rotten establishment be pressured by The People.
