Re: Bush is a Texas Oil Man right?
We shake our fists and tell opec we are serious about increasing oil production, yet we wont explore drill or build refineries here in the US.
What kinda message is that sending about our seriousness?
We consider your countries ecosystem to be less important than yours.
What happens if the same brand of politically driven eco terrorism and hostage holding of resources that plague our country suddenly become de facto in the arab world?
Why are we using ethanol? If we are going to subsidize renewable fuels bio-diesel makes more sense, instead of mandating ethanol production kill the production of gasoline engines. Get waste vegetable oil recycling mandated just like lead recycling, 98% of car batteries which is the largest lead consumer in the US come from recycled lead. And nothing smells better than french fry exhaust. Plus biodiesal can be made from virgin veg oil stocks as well.
Mandate re-refining of waste motor oil, no need to keep refining crude for engine oil just recycle what we have.
These are steps we should have been taking 10 years ago, our dependance on foreign oil is apalling.
We used to have a great agricultural base in this country that has fallen to pieces, the entitlement mentallity that broke out amongst baby boomers and spread to GenX and that is corrupting and growing amongst generation Y is one of the largest issues we have.
No one wants to work hard and many don't know how to work hard.
Personally if I were going to get into farming I would have an eye towards corn oil production and building a bio-diesel refinery.
