  I find it disturbing that some energy issues get a free pass from evironmentalists. CFL light bulbs, for example, no problem with the mercury. Batteries for electric cars, no problem with t he disposal of those batteries when there are millions of them to dispose. Solar energy, no problem that they scrape the desert floor and destroy all plant and animal life. Usually, a square mile at least. Woe,to he who proposes extraction of oil form shale. It does too much damage to the earth and requires too much water. Excuse me, recent estimates say the solar plants in the U.S. that are on the drawing boards will require 16 billion of gallon of water to operate. 

Let’s see, windmills kill 2.2 birds a day not to mention several bats. That’s OK. Why is it OK?

There is a definite bias against all forms of fossil fuels, nuclear, as well as coal in this country. That bias creates a blind spot when it comes to all other so-called green energy initiatives. Ethanol, one thousand gallons of water for each gallon of ethanol. No Problem.

It strikes me that we don’t have an energy strategy in this country that hangs together.

Neither side tells the truth. Green energy proponents lie about everything that might be negative about green energy and the ultimate cost. The others are said to lie when their lips move. Bad PR for 30 years hurts them. They seem to be working on it. Coal, oil, and nuclear all have big PR campaigns. 

Ultimately there will be those who oppose the power lines to bring the solar from the desert. Already had that in California. There will be th those who realize we have a serious water problem in the Southwest and we’re going to use 16 billions gallons for solar power. No way. There will be those who oppose the birds and bats and noise pollutions for wind power. And, the power lines again. Someone will scream some thay that all the CFL bulbs are polluting our neighborhoods and landfills with mercury. There will be those who fell we have blighted our seascapes with windmills.

There will be a hue and cry that wll the CFL bulbs come from China and our bulbs used to come from Kentucky. The solar panels and windmills are mostly imported.

Eventually, reality will set in and the green projects that get a free pass will come under attack. When that happens, they will be stopped, just like fossil fuels, nuclear, shale , clean coal, and all others. 

The nutcases that really run this country want our energy we need to move about, make things, heat, light and cool our homes to come from Mother Nature. And, we all know it’s not nice to fool with Mother Nature. 

So, go back to the course we’ve been on. Stop all forms of new energy and pray. Pray real hard, since it maigh be your ass that freezes ,not the widows and orphans we have frozen with past government -made energy shortages.
