    Hey dumbass? You do realize that idiot progressives live in every state in the U.S., don't you? There are Democrat Mayors in Texas because some cities are dominated by progressives.

    You are scary stupid. Or desperate. Or both.

    Yeah - because idiot progressives block oil production. Barack Insane Obama placed a moratorium on offshore drilling and blocked the Keystone Pipeline.

    Green energy is not cost effective right now. But one sure way to make sure it is never cost effective is to demand that it be so right off the bat. The improvements have been huge.

    And using oil as the basis for our energy needs is not sustainable either. There is a finite amount of oil. It will run out. To ignore that is to doom the world as we know it.

    Yeah because we know oil and coal weren't cost effective the first time they were tried . . . . . . er, no, that's not right.

    Oil & coal burn. That is the sum total of it. But surely you are not claiming the efficiency of fossil fuels has not improved?

    The fact us that we have the fuels for nuclear power to last for centuries. Wind, solar and other sustainable sources can last even longer. Fossil fuels will not last centuries.

    I don't demand that green energy be "cost effective" right now. I demand that government stop throwing money at it unconstitutionally. If Al Gore and his pals want to develop it - that's on them.
    Oil doesn't run our energy sector chief (it runs automobiles). Coal, natural gas, and nuclear run our energy sector. And the earth is constantly making natural gas as it breaks down materials. It is not only infinite, it is imperative that we use it. And burning it is very clean.

    Too bad the greenies are against nuclear. Wind and solar will never practical to power and advanced industrial economy. The best plan is to use fossil fuels until fusion comes online. That would happen a lot sooner if they took all the money the government spends on so-called "green energy" and devoted it to fusion research.

    And not for nothing...but there is no "finite amount". This massive planet is constantly making more of it.

    Yes, fossil fuels are being formed all the time. But not at the rate at which we consume them.
