The current internal war on energy that is occurring within our country is based on lies and deceit. Fossil fuels are needed until a fully reliable alternative is available at an equal or lower cost. In fact, the emissions from fossil fuel use has been greatly reduced over the past decades by improvements in technology like catalytic converters for one example. The narrative that electric is clean energy is a lie. It’s takes fossil fuels to generate electricity in our electric generation stations. Yes, solar and wind are good alternatives. But they are not affordable to all, and far from reliable since they both rely upon changing weather conditions. Then comes the electric vehicles that store electricity in a bank of batteries. Do these batteries last forever? No. When they are replaced, they have to be recycled, which usually means shipping them to another country so that have to deal with it. Remember how China said “No more plastic”? That plastic was coming from our country to appease the short sighted environmentalists who believe that as long as it’s not in our country, it’s not pollution. If we were to use the same kind of poor thought processes behind the hate of fossil fuels and apply it to the food on our plates, we would have our food taken away and we would be expect to eat whatever magically falls on our plates from an unknown and unreliable source. It makes no sense at all to try and discard something when you have nothing else to replace the need with. So let’s ignore the “Climate Change” fear tactics like we have for several decades now. First first it was a burning up planet on the Time Magazine cover. Then years later, a frozen planet on the cover. Then later yet, a burning planet again. Now it’s a fearful planet. Enough of the lies and deceit. Americans see right through it, and the war to infuse common sense into society again is just starting. Don’t be “woke”. Stay awake with rational thinking.
