On August 8, 2005, President Bush signed into the law the energy bill; on July 28,the U.S. House of Representatives voted 275 to 156 to approve the energy bill; and on July 29, the U.S. Senate voted 74 to 26 to approve the energy bill.
Since 2001, energy corporations have showered federal politicians with $115 million in campaign contributions—with three-quarters of that amount going to Republicans. This cash helped secure energy companies and their lobbyists exclusive, private access to lawmakers, starting with Vice-President Dick Cheney’s Energy Task Force, whose report provided the foundation of the energy bill passed by Congress and signed by President Bush on August 8.

Alternative energy is rapidly growing with innovations and demands for its consumption. New technology goes through a learning curve, especially when it is replacing a major function of our infrastructures. Observe the transistors to computers and I-Phones to replace the monopolized Ma Bell. Takes time and until the transition is complete there will remain a demand on the standard system presently employed. Natural Gas is just one component that has a sales market advantage under the efficiency of its burning to that of oil. It will be used as a component of the toxic energy systems to aid our independence of toxic energy systems. The catalyst that is now a necessity and will soon be an unnecessary necessity.

The feds need to step in a regulate the fracking industry so they cannot cause any further destruction to out groundwater supplies.
