Energy Policy

Energy Policy Needed Now!

Energy Policy Needed Now!

The United States will continue to use energy at a rate that far exceeds our own ability to supply for years to come. No one wants a nuclear power plant or coal mine in their backyard. Many folks don't want wind turbines, or solar farms in their pristine environment either. To argue that there will or will not be attendant disruptions with any type of currently accessible means of energy production is useless (it is impossible to see every unintended consequence in any endeavor).

In the United States, the largest methane emissions come from the decomposition of wastes in landfills, ruminant digestion and manure management associated with domestic livestock... (Source - US Emissions Inventory 2010 EPA) The largest source of carbon dioxide is animal and plant decay also. Show me an alternative workable plan to mitigate these sources of greenhouse gases and I will jump on board immediately.

So, if we want to be financed by the Chinese, so that we can finance the terrorists, so that we can stop eating, stop driving cars , do away with cement, steel, and iron production well... then... no energy plan, is absolutely the way to go. Focusing on any one technology to the exclusion of all others is a safe bet for disaster also.

Coalition Guest Commentary - Sen. Lindsey Graham: Clean Energy Bill Should Balance Security, Economy and Environment

Our nation stands at a crossroads as many significant issues have been ignored for decades. Among them is energy independence and passing along a cleaner environment to future generations.

As a conservative, I have always believed we can and should be better stewards of God's creation. I also know we can strengthen our economy and national security by becoming energy independent.

Last year we spent more than $440 billion on foreign oil and now find ourselves more dependent on overseas supplies than at any other time in our nation's history. Sometimes our money even goes to fund enemies bent on our destruction.

And who will ever forget last year's $4 a gallon gas? America has been held hostage by foreign cartels far too long and it's now time we do something about it.

POLITICAL [AND CIVIL] FREEDOM IS NOT POSSIBLE IN THE ABSENCE OF FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE. 0R IS IT?

 

IS POLITICAL FREEDOM FACTIBLE IF YOU DON'T HAVE FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE, TOO? 

I wish I were wrong, but I'm certain I am not, and will continue to be certain unless someone proves me that I'm dead wrong. But please don't use farfetched arguments or your selective perception of reality to feel comfortable in the phantasy world of "Wonderland". Moeover, before evluating the above issue, please answer yourself each one of the following questions:

A: Does it look as if the real Power behind the power is following a well coordinated plan to use the pretext of "saving" the USA economy in order to control it first, and then own it?
