And if the true cost of coal & oil & gas were reflected at the cash register, people wouldn't be able to afford it either.<quoted text>Nobody is forcing Americans to produce or use fossil fuel. They are less expensive and more reliable than green energy, that's all.
When W.T.S. writes: "killing the planet", think he means Earth?
<quoted text>Lead, follow or get out of the way. There is no magic renewable energy or fuel that can provide the reliable energy we get from fossil fuel.
<quoted text>Driving and energy to power your workplace aren't the only benefits of fossil fuel, it also moves your goods to and from market, cools your home in summer and warms it in winter. If solar, wind and biofuel could work without subsidy and mandate, you wouldn't need to waste taxpayers and consumers money on the left's backward energy schemes.
The only thing preventing us from using renewable energy for all our needs is the oil/coal/gas barons and the monopoly on energy production they get courtesy of the toadies they pay off in Congress and state legislatures.
The sheeple are going to get what they deserve- a wrecked economy, darkness, and no heat/cooling. It's only a matter of when.
