    the natural gas is being sold as a pain-free alternative. What people who are never curious how that can be don’t know that it’s all about fracking, that which has caused earthquakes, and flammable drinking water.
    The petrochemical barons have NO SAFE way to use these things and they don’t care about all the damage it’s doing to our homeland and our drinking water.
    Yet they seem to be able to sleep at night because they have decided that as long as they make profits,
    to hell with the people and the land and water.

    Fly across the country and take note of all the natural gas fields being developed, and “fracking” is just PART of the problem. Yes, we need energy, but we need conservation of energy as well. Every day, the U.S. wastes more energy than most of the industrialized world, let alone the third world, uses. (Yes, I know about China and coal, also the fact they’re doing more for solar and wind than the U.S..)

    Coal has mercury in it which winds up in the air, water, fish, and us.
    Coal also has sulfur to make acid rain.
    I had a neighbor who used to work for Cargill, before she became an extreme environmentalist.
    She could smell Cargill 10 miles away.
    One day she was going around the back of a vacant foreclosure and I wondered what she was doing.
    She was unscrewing a floodlight because in West Virginia they are taking the tops off of mountains to get coal.
    I pointed out that it was better than having a bunch of teenagers having a drinking party in the back yard.
    What we need are alternatives.

    Back in the late ‘40s and ’50s everyone knew that U235 produced energy at the rate of E=mc2, so, by 1970, all our energy needs will be supplied from U235 and all unburned fossil fuels will remain, worthless, in the ground.


    So, while we’re waiting for 1970, we need to exploit all the fossil fuels. Ideally, we should burn up the last fossil fuel by December 31, 1969, or we’ll have wasted it.


    So we’d better get busy fracking and drilling and burning all the fossil fuel we can, since, if we don’t, it will all go to waste when we reach 1970, so we have to hurry, hurry, hurry.

    There are better energy sources than fossil fuels available NOW. www.rmi.org

    Saying something is a lie doesn’t make it so. Keep your head in the sand where it’ll be safe. From thought.
