He's against drilling in ANWR, coal plants and nuclear.|
So if he's elected we are stuck. Gas prices will keep going up. We already know that he doesn't want to cut taxes on fuel.
This is the lack of experience that everyone wants to call bigoted thinking. LOL!
If he's elected the first thing you need to do is sell your car and get a bus pass.
It's going to be just like it was during Carter's administration where there were gas lines and those with enough money would have to stand in line at the pumps for many hours and limited to just a few gallons. There is a reason historians rates Carter as our worst president in the past 50 years (worse than even Nixon).
Obama is so much like Carter it's pathetic.
In 2003, President Bush announced a program called the Hydrogen Fuel Initiative (HFI) during his State of the Union Address. He has dedicated more than one $$$ Billion dollars to Fuel Cell research and development.
Congress shot down his first energy policy that would have given discounts to buy hybrid cars at almost exact pricing of standard autos. This was basically because Democrats were trying to hurt him so they could win the White House this time around. Therefore the energy plan they accepted didn't give an advantage to buying hybrid cars. This allows foreign nations to still develop the best alternate fuel sources since the incentive has been removed from American industry.
As of 2005, 49.7% of the electricity produced in the United States comes from coal, 19.3% comes from nuclear, 18.7% comes from natural gas, 6.5% from hydroelectricity, and 3% from petroleum.
Hydrogen fuel cells require coal fired fuel plants which Obama is against. The Democrats try to hide this fact from the ignorant masses trying to make them believe that Hydrogen fuel cells magically are made of hydrogen that just happens to be retrieved by grabbing it from the water. They immediately grasp on to pollution from coal plants used as fear tactics.
While the rest of the world is building nuclear reactors for their energy independence, we sit here handcuffed by fear the Democrats perpetrated on the American people. One corporation attempted to do a study of the feasibility of building a nuclear power plant and found after millions of dollars of investments, they were unsure if Democrats would further pass laws making the cost magnitudes more expensive as they neared completion. Therefore the risk associated with the unknown cost are far beyond any corporation inside or outside the USA building a nuclear power plant here. Right now one of the biggest cost are certain metals used and they can only be bought from Japan since America has restricted the production due to environmental concerns.
Bush had many alternate fuel solutions and with each one the Democrats voted them down pretending he is an "oil man." Their lemmings repeat it over and over, and very few knew of his energy policy that would have allowed them to buy a hybrid car at the exact same price as any other car on the market with government rebates. It's this ignorance that is causing our economy and our country to slip back into a 3rd world nations.
Obama's "CHANGE" is a change back to the days of Carter. It's a change alright, but just back to the old Democratic socialism plan of Jimmy Carter that was a dismal failure. This isn't the plan of a Bill Clinton and we don't have a Ronald Reagan to salvage the mess like he did with Carter's boondoggle.
This is the very reason Obama has to deal with terrorist and terrorist nations on a one to one basis because he knows he is going to be dependant on them for oil to prevent environmentalist from not supporting him. The far left is his voters and that is how he intends to keep them. He will be going to terrorist nations with his plate begging for handouts like Carter did. We watched Iran march US hostages blindfolded across the TV screen every day for 444 days until Regan took office and freed them.
This is what happens when you have a Peanut Farmer or an Attorney run something they don't have the slightest experience running.
Rather than an engineering subject related question it should be placed in forums of ethics.|
Electricity has several use spreading its dimension from heaven to hell.
A poor boy or girl in several countries of Asia, or Africa use a single incandescent bulb for studying, poor women use for knitting (electric knitting machine, light) or poor people run small electric powered machines in cottage industries. They earn only 3-5 dollars (US) a day. They use only small desk fans or ceiling fan for relief in summer....and many more.....this huge picture cannot be completed in such small space.....
Hospitals run CT scan , X-ray machine, mass spectrometer, FACS (fluorescence assisted cell sorting), laminar flows, incubators, low temperature refrigerators for storing life saving drugs etc........ Operation theatre have to be air conditioned, dust and germ free so use of ACs are mandatory.....a non ending list will continue
Common people use public transports like passenger trains, trams, trolley buses, all these are electricity driven and millions of people rely on them being cheaper than taxis, or personal cars.
All food processing (from baby food to liquor ! the second one is not included in this picture) industries, food storage and supply companies, use electricity for running their huge machines. Life saving drug manufacturing companies use electric energy for production and storage.......
If I continue I can not complete, so now I move towards other side of its use.
Car manufacturing companies, consumer commodities manufacturing companies use thousands of million megawatts of electricity every year, they earn billions of dollars each year. Do they have right to use electricity free of cost which comes from exploitation of natural resources?
Projects making atom bombs, lethal weapons, more deadly monstrous war machines demand million megawatts of electric energy to run electric demons (gigantic motors, furnaces, cranes etc...)
supported by governments of different countries, is it ethical to spend electric energy in such projects free of cost?
Night clubs, casinos, adult magazine companies, fashion industries, cinema industries use up millions of megawatts of electric energy each year (for attractive lighting, arc lamps, ACs, printing press, computers....etc....) do they have any right to use it in free of cost?
Millionaires and billionaires use electric energy to light up outside of their compounds to show up their houses at night, which just add heat to earth atmosphere. Use central ACs, energy inefficient luxurious instruments, should they use it free of cost?
I am not in a mood to lengthen my ever increasing list,
to conclude I must say in this world where over 80% of electric energy comes from destruction of natural resources, its use must be channeled towards public welfare, development and restoration.
It should be made free for some cases in situations shown 1 to 4 or should be supplied at low cost.
In situations 5-8 either electric energy be served at high rates or disconnected from power grid to make electric energy of their own from non polluting energy sources (solar, solar-thermal, geothermal, hydroelectricity, wind power etc.....)

17) D) Birthrates will continue to rise as they have since 1909. - We will be 9 billion people in a few short years. When I was born a bit over 20 years ago we were around 5,5 billion people
