Fuel prices are low and we love it, but why are they low?
They are low because The Mideast is afraid of Keystone Pipeline and are willing to lower their prices so that we again become complacent and begin to think that we don’t need said Pipeline!
Don’t be fooled. As soon as we give up on The Keystone Pipeline, the mideast will bring prices up even higher than before. These people are not our friends!
Of course there will be groups who are against The Keystone Pipeline claiming environmental issues that have, long since, been solved. The Alaskan pipeline has been in place for a long time and, yes, there have been minor problems that have been dealt with in a timely manor. I am all for protecting our environment, animal species and the needs and concerns of tribal entities. But, I am even more concerned about our nation and our desperate need for affordable fuel.
(We have been stopped from using nuclear power which has been working in France for decades without incident)
Electric vehicles are not the answer because electric energy has to be generated somewhere and that somewhere is diesel generators that are, at this very moment, generating the power that we get when we plug an electric vehicle into an outlet to charge the battery. We can wish and hope until the cows come home, but the reality is that we do and will run on fossil fuel and we have plenty of it right here on our own continent! “Drill Baby Drill!”
Our only true hope is Hydrogen Energy and, in time, we will have it and our problems with fuel will be over once and for all! So don’t listen to the nay sayers. We are on the right track and we will overcome our geopolitical and energy problems well within out lifetime if we are not stalled by people like our present President who seems to be stuck on stupid and rather than do things for our Country he is concentrating on doing things for his party and our Country be damned!
So let’s stop all the wishful thinking and “pie in the sky” solutions and fix this damn thing!
