Oil, gas, electricity and water. Get used to it, people….we are going to have to make do with less. Our leaders in Washington have legislated 50 years of progress away and given it to the Plutocrats who really run America. In only a decade our children’s futures have been destroyed.These are the terrorists we should be aware of all done legally with exemptions to Federal laws.

Next we will find out that hydraulic fracking for gas well drilling that is going on all over the West is contaminating groundwater while Obama is still handing out new leases. Humans are the only species who will defecate in the same place where they eat and drink. We are headed for extinction.

Wake up, sheeple. Money doesn’t grow on trees. Food doesn’t come from the store. Gas doesn’t come from a pump. Water doesn’t stay clean unless laws protect it from Big Corporate Lobbyists who think they have The Right to use it to get rich at the expense of everyone else and the economy. The Tragedy of the Commons is well under way.

Nine? You seem to think gasoline is all we make. I remember the price wars in Detroit 40 years ago; we had a problem with excess gasoline left over from our refining; see all those concrete storage tanks along I-75? We couldn’t build enough of ’em. Finally, out of desperation they started Marathon Oil Corp… to sell off the gas; dump it on the market. Our oil dependency goes deeper than gasoline, we make a lot of oil products, so the gasoline is going to be produced also. If you changed over to electric cars, what would you do with all the gas?

Aside from not recognizing the depths of our oil dependence, you also need to get real with just how clean these other energy sources are. It is always a good idea to diversify your energy sources, so you have options when one market fails. Have you looked into super thermal disposal of household garbage? It solves the disposal problem and also creates more energy than it uses in process… a win, win for our electric grid.

I wonder who put more CO2 into the atmosphere, this year… man or volcano? Could magnetic pole shift be the real culprit behind climate change? The earth is probably okay as a whole, but our cities are polluted on a local level… cities like New York and Los Angeles should be writing local ordinances mandating a shift to all electric vehicles.

The secret to changing our energy program is to first change our money creation. Government has to be the catalyst, and government is going belly up, we can’t even fund our public schools. The globalists are printing their money on our mints and we are selling bonds to borrow our own money from their banks… you won’t be able to make any energy changes when government is choosing to live in a constant state of bankruptcy. Before you can get the idiots in government to do their job with energy, you need to get them to do their job with money creation… only after you restore solvency to our money creation will there be any money to work with to solve our energy needs. Americans are incredibly stupid, we founded this nation for the express purpose of creating our own money and then we handed our sovereignty right back to the banks. If we don’t wake up and take back the money creation, none of your energy pipe dreams will ever happen.

The offshore drilling offer made by Obama is completely wrongheaded and doesn’t get the problem. I just wrote a piece on the spill and the bill that goes into even more detail about why it’s wrong and what we really need: http://www.newdeal20.org/2010/05/06/clea n-energy-and-the-oil-spill-3-facts-you-m ay-not-know-10575/
