Adolph Hitler was on Amphetamines Part II

Your very rich liberal politician does not want us to get ahead through progressive change either because he/she themselves want to stay ahead within the current basis of working knowledge- someone else’s.  He wants to be the eighth grade medical Doctor.
There is also a strong interest in a dirty energy policy because it is what pays the dividends of the wealth class.  We go to war for oil so that the rich can stay rich from fixed income investments in Utilities powered by dirty energy.
Here are some facts that I borrowed with website references and links.

“””””Oil is the largest source of energy in the United States, providing close to 40 percent of all of the nation's entire power needs. Though most oil is used for transportation or home heating purposes, a small percentage is still used as a fuel for electricity generating plants.”””””

Should homes still be allowed to be heated by burning oil?  Would we not be better off connecting them to a natural gas grid?  We are told we have ample supplies of Natural Gas?

“Today, oil meets 36 percent of US energy demand [i], with 70 percent directed to fuels used in transportation – gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. Another 24 percent is used in industry and manufacturing, 5 percent is used in the commercial and residential sectors, and 1 percent is used to generate electricity. “[ii]


So where does our oil go to?  When we are told it is used in Transportation what does that mean?  It   means gasoline for your car.  And rather than try and avert the crisis by putting a strong effort into seeing that cars became more efficient over the last four decades we went to war.  Easier to go to war than innovate?  Not a good policy.  We should have been putting every top Dougie in the country on this one to no avail?  What did lack of progress oversight and initiative lead to?  The auto makers went bankrupt and the taxpayer bailed them out.  So the taxpayer bailed out a Corporation that could have played a key role in solving the nation’s energy problem.  It makes me wonder if there was not just one taxpayer in the whole of the United States of America that helped bail those corporations out, that could have contributed to cars getting double the MPG they get today 30 years ago.  Might have been somebody the hired and fired or didn’t want to hire or whose Insurance wouldn’t cover him for an illness he/she never should have had in the first place.
Natural gas is methane.

“The remaining 17 percent of crude oil products are a wide variety of gases, liquids and semi-solids. Among the more common products, still gas, also known as refinery gas, is a generic term for any gas produced by refining crude oil. Still gases include methane, ethane, butane and propane. Although containing the same constituent elements as LPGs, still gas is used to fuel refineries and as a chemical feedstock. Road oil is any heavy petroleum oil used to stabilize paved roads. Asphalt is a thick tar used to pave roads and to make roofing materials and floor coverings.”

An Essential Part of America's Energy Mix
  • Natural gas supplies nearly one-fourth of all of the energy used in the United States. 
  • Due to its efficiency, cleanliness and reliability, natural gas is growing increasingly popular.  Consumption of natural gas will increase 11 percent by 2030, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
  • Most of the growth in natural gas demand comes from electricity generators, who have turned to natural gas because it is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel and highly efficient.
Nationwide Delivery System
  • Natural gas is delivered to customers through a safe, sound, 2.4-million mile underground pipeline system that includes:
    • 2.1 million miles of local utility distribution pipes; and
    • 300,000 miles of transmission lines.
Where Does Natural Gas Come From?
  • Most (88 percent) of the natural gas consumed in the United States is produced in the U.S.  Canada provides much of the rest (10.5 percent), with 1.5 percent imported as liquefied natural gas (LNG).
  • Production from the lower-48 states remains the largest component of U.S. natural gas supply.
  • In Alaska, huge quantities of natural gas found in the North Slope region are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the state’s total natural gas resources, but these supplies will remain stranded there until an Alaskan natural gas pipeline is built.

So you walk over that North Slope like the dark side of the moon and do you see a refinery that is converting Alaskan Oil into natural gas or what do you see?

The question that I have to ask is?
I have to wonder if indeed still gas or methane as natural gas is not produced from Alaskan Oil?
If we find it very hard to cap an oil well in the gulf of Mexico imagine how hard to would be to tap natural gas deposit?  It seems like it would be a lot more complex and dangerous.
