Green Movement Running on Empty!
As many of you know who listen to The Steve Gruber Show, I am a proponent for the use of fossil fuels. I try to inform my listeners that green energy cannot be the only method used to fuel our energy hungry society.
Windmills and solar panels do not have the same energy density as oil, coal or natural gas period paragraph. Windmills and solar panels will not run your car, even if it is electric. Where do you think the energy comes from? Typically it will be from a coal fired power plant or a nuclear power plant. Windmills are also not cheap and take up 50 acres per turbine.
So my question is why are we squandering all this money to build these gigantic bird killers? According to Secretary of State Kerry squandering millions upon millions of dollars isn’t a big deal considering he recently made the following statement during a college commencement speech about climate change: “If we make the necessary efforts to address this challenge—and supposing I'm wrong or scientists are wrong, 97% of them all wrong—supposing they are, what's the worst that can happen?”
Gee, how about the tens of millions of tax-payer dollars being flushed down the political hogwash toilet not to mention the possible jobs that could be created with natural gas. I think it is time to start having a common sense clear- eyed conversation about how to transform the energy sector as we know it. Just saying John.
