The Greatest Threat to American Security is Obama

 

Putin-and-Obama


The Ukraine came apart when a protest against its president forced him to flee to Russia. The issue was whether the Ukraine would be allied with Russia or with the European Union. Due to a combination of the obscene corruption of its former president, Viktor Yanukovych, and the mismanagement of the nation in general, the Ukrainian Parliament ousted him in February, a move supported by 328 members of the Parliament. He still claims to be president. 

In contrast to the “melting pot” of America where people come from all over and develop strong feelings for our nation, the Ukrainians, divided primarily between the East and West, never quite gelled; the younger generation does not want to be back under the sway of Russia while many of the older ones, recalling the bad old days when it was, want closer ties with Europe. It remains divided and whether it will reunite is anyone’s guess. 

If it does reunite, it will be missing the Crimean republic which has been seized by Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin. It had been part of Russia for hundreds of years and represents a critical warm water port. Krushchev relinquished it to Ukraine, but Putin will not. Sending troops into a foreign nation is an act of war, but I doubt that many Crimeans, see themselves as a foreign nation. They were Russian and they are Russian. Let’s move on.

Putin’s bold action brought a lot of other issues into play, not the least of which is Russia’s provision of natural gas to Ukraine and many European nations that depend on it, not the least of which is Germany.

One thing is for sure, NATO will not intervene to restore Crimea to the Ukraine and the European Union has so many financial ties to Russia that there is little reason to do anything than go through the charade of sanctions and criticism. I think the general consensus is that while Putin would like to expand the Russian Federation to the size of the former Russian empire, the cost of similar military actions would be too high.

The response of President Obama has been predictably weak. He is abandoning the Middle East to Islamic fascists. He has failed to provide an umbrella of military protection to Europe. He and Democrat members of Congress continue to tell us that the greatest threat here and worldwide is a global warming that isn’t happening.

The greatest threat to American security is President Obama for two reasons: (1) He has deliberately weakened the U.S. military and (2) his domestic energy policies have failed to take advantage of discoveries of massive amounts of natural gas and oil reserves. Drilling for them on federal lands and offshore has been largely thwarted. As a result the U.S. economy has limped along when it could be booming just from the energy sector alone.

Two reporters for The Wall Street Journal spelled out why the “U.S. Push for Natural-Gas Exports to Ukraine Faces Hurdles” in its March 12the edition. 

“Neither the infrastructure nor international markets for natural gas have evolved to the point where the U.S. can step in and provide the kinds of energy supplies that would quickly reduce these nations’ dependency on Russian gas.” 

“U.S. energy companies need several more years to build plants to export the gas—and Ukraine doesn’t have the facilities to receive it…The giant machines and cooling towers it takes to make liquefied natural gas, or LNG, take years to construct and cost billions of dollars.” There is at present a LNG terminal in Spain that could take gas shipments that could be added to the extensive European pipeline network, helping many nations there such as Hungary and the Czech Republic.

Suffice to say, U.S. policy and lawmakers have failed to take the actions necessary to respond to the recent surge in natural gas and oil supplies. Many Americans will be surprised to learn that in the 1970s Congress made it illegal to export domestically produced crude oil without a license. Those were the days of the Arab oil embargo.

At this point, the U.S. has more untapped oil than Saudi Arabia, as well as enough natural gas and coal to make us energy independent.

In addition, an odd and idiotic law requires the production of ethanol, a gasoline additive. In 2013, ethanol production was 316,964 thousand barrels. Ethanol not only decreases the mileage of the gasoline we purchase at the pump, it damages auto engines, two very good reasons to end this conversion of corn into energy that in turn drives up the cost of countless food products.

Even moving crude oil around the domestic U.S. poses a challenge despite a network of pipelines. Doing so by train has created many new problems. President Obama has delayed the Keystone XL pipeline that would increase crude oil supplies to our Gulf State’s refineries; thus denying us the jobs its construction would create and other benefits. The good news is that the U.S. has become one of the largest gross exporters of refined oil products such as gasoline and diesel. 

If the U.S. government would get out of the way, new refineries and export facilities for natural gas could be built. The U.S. would prosper and energy costs would be reduced, along with our national debt. For now, however, the Ukraine, a longtime financial basket case, and Europe are not going to get a surge of natural gas or crude oil that would help reduce their dependence on Russia. 

So long as President Obama remains in office, none of the steps that must be taken to restore the nation’s economy and tap the huge potential of our energy sector will occur.

 

Comments

  1. When you really break it down, give it some hard thought, most all Americans realize why this presidency is a failure. And they know what they have to do to turn this wreck around. Let your voices be heard in November and 2016!!!!!

    1. Although I agree with you, I live in CA. Here I talk to people all the time who love this nutjob. They are stuck on stupid, along with many from all walks of the political realm. There needs to be a week of turn off the TV. SOOOOOO many just sit in front of the stupid box absorbing all that intelligence insulting propaganda that mainstream megaliars call “news”. Amerikkkans need to become informed through effort. They need to research all the issues that are destroying USA. We all need to investigate everyone we vote for before we cast our vote, because the [person we vote for is our responsibility, we are accountable for their lies and actions. We need to fire every hypocrite politician in the world and vote in patriots and people who truly want to help their respective countries, then we can live on this planet in some sort of awareness that we are the stewards whom God chose to tend His garden.

  2. Themistocles (Second Persian invasion of Greece) was petty, pompous, impetuous, quick to despair, extremely ambitious, inflamed with the passion for great actions and personal distinction, a liar, ruthless, and an overt manipulator. He was also very popular, intelligent, judicious, an out of the box thinker, keenly interested in public affairs; and both an accurate forecaster of international dangers, and willing to use all his considerable underhanded skills in order to thwart that danger.

    Obama is like Themistocles, only he has an incorrect picture of both the internal and external dangers the US faces, and is willing to use all his considerable underhanded skills in order to implement his suicidal vision about how best to protect it.

    1. “Obama is like Themistocles”
      I rather think of him as bathwater circling the drain, and not much of anything else.

    2. More liket water circling the comode bowl, but he is not alone. Putin refers to him as toilet paper and uses him as such.

    3. The *only* reason Obama’s popularity points are going down is because conservationists are being successful at demonstrating how stupid his health care plan is in spite of all the cover the media has been giving him. And now Obama is being shown how stupid he is by attempting to get the world to like us by showing them how non-threatening our military is.

      So I agree. Obama is bathwater circling the drain. Unfortunately, no one from the left will ever accept that statement, because they think *all* politicians are bathwater. We could not do a worse job at teaching our kids political and economic philosophies if we intentionally imported our teachers from mainland China.

    4. I pretty much skipped the whole school system thx to special circumstances admittedly not available to the unlucky 98%, if that figure rings any bells with you.

    1. Primate? Correction: Bigoted asshats like you are the single greatest threat to this nation. Racist fool..

    2. Uncultured swine. Roooth is a veteran. You know, one of those people the Tea Party pretends to care about.

    3. doubt that the liberal troll rooth is a vet, as most of us can’t stand the primate in our WHITE house

    4. And thats your problem. Government is about people from all over the nation with different views compromising, and deciding what is best for the country. Not a tea party dictatorship. Next election, why don’t you win the battle of ideas, and maybe you can have one of your own primates in office. Just because you do not like the results of democracy, doe not mean it is a dictatorship.

    5. DOE??? is that walmart speak for “does”?? The primate thinks he is a dictator and you fukin idiots that voted the POS in ,now realize you fuked up and are either 2 God dam stupid or too embarrassed to admit you FUKED UP and put a racist,mental midget,primate in AMERICAS WHITE house. There is NO DEMOCRACY in ovomit. I even typed this really slow so even you might have a chance at keeping up.I know you feel I should value your opinion ,but I find that impossible as you are a fukin idiot,suks to be you So sorry

    6. Lol. Hahahha sucks to be me? Some idiot in the comment section does not respect my much more researched opinion? Gee, that makes me sad. What liberties have you lost since Obama’s been in office? hmm? If he was a real dictator, he’d have you locked up and sent to jail. You people are funny. I realize you criticized my typo, however made several yourself. Typing slow? Was that suppose to be funny? You should go on jon stewart. You’d give him material for weeks

    7. Dam NANCY all this while crawling out of yo crackhead street corner trick turning momma’s section 8 ghetto dump,while makin yo comments on yo free ovomit phone as you travel down to pick up yer welfare check,right before you sneak around the corner to trade yer foodstamps for meth which you happily share with yer momma and daddy ,and since they are actually brother n sista that may explain some of the fukin inbred stupid comments you post on here. Suks to be you NANCY. OH YEAH NANCY once again I typed really really slow so you might keep up..

    8. I believe they call this a tea party tantrum. You don’t have any reason to hate Obama, he’s just the scape goat for your issues. I’m a college student who has just received a $16,000 academic scholarship, so maybe you are describing your own life. In that case, get help, stop raping your cousins and having inbred, bastardd kids. When she says no, it means no, wildman. Sick west Virginian people. And step off of Bullsh*TMountain, and join the rest of us in reality.

    9. You’re right. That was a racist statement and it was good of you to point that out. Now how about waking up and realizing it is the LEFT that is moreover, the party of hate. It is the LEFT which supported slavery and the KKK and it is the LEFT which overwhelmingly embraces communism. You have no information other than the typical young leftist NEA indoctrinated college punk. Absolutely none.

    10. Thats ridiculous. That was 150 years ago. Being liberal now means something totally different than being liberal back then. In fact, republicans were liberals back then, and democrats were conservative. Learn context Glitch Girl, don’t be so dense. I don’t think a white person like yourself actually knows what racism is. Now, the tea party and KKK are pals now. In fact, go to a KKK site, and you won’t know the difference between tea party and kkk.

    11. No offence eddie, but I think you don’t see the liberal philosophy as it is. Conservatists want to keep the Constitution and the rights they have, that’s what the name means. Liberals are all for change, but have little interest in the repercussions of those changes, or whether the idea has been tried
      before and failed. Don’t get me wrong, some liberal ideas have merit. Conservatists often embrace policies that are new. And occasionally some policies work out. But since the magnitude of the possible downsides of some policies are hard to predict, conservatists often like to make changes
      slowly. As in ObamaCare, conservatists do not always get their way.

      Let’s make some historical comparisons.
      Back then, Democrats were liberals because they wanted to abandon the United States and the Constitution that held it together.
      Today, Democrats are liberals because they want to abandon the Constitution and get rid of the 2nd amendment (guns), private property (EPA control over private property and eminent domain seizures on property to increase the tax base), and freedom of speech (using the IRS to keep conservative organizations from organizing).

      Back then, Republicans were against slavery because they morally objected to abusing human beings. Democrats argued that the law did not define blacks as human beings.
      Today, Conservative Republicans object to abortion because they morally object to murdering human beings. Liberal Democrats argue that the law does not define them as human beings.

      The KKK is a racist organization that is pro-non-Catholic, pro-white, and anti-Socialist. Just because both organizations are anti-Socialist, Liberals think they are the same thing. They are not. There are many organizations here in the US that are anti-Socialist that HATE the KKK. This is just a few of them: American Committee for the Liberation of the Peoples of Russia, American Writers Association, Americans Battling Communism, Committee for the Free World Government of Free Vietnam, The Heritage Foundation, Jewish Defense League, Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, the Western Goals Foundation, and the *TEA Party* to name just a few.

      The Tea Party HATES racism and all who are racist. I’ve been to Tea Party gatherings. It’s all about anti-Socialism, Taxes, and Gun rights. I have both black and white grandkids that I love and am very proud of. Liberalism says it’s all about helping the lower classes, but they embrace economic policies that endanger our safety, encourage dictators to invade helpless countries, and actually create poverty.

  3. Then impeach this Muslim sicking tratior now any other one would have gone a long time ago but color plays it,s card again let’s get this moron out now come on congress how many times does have to make you look like a bunch of jerk offs you must be cowards you haven,t done anything yet what good are you over paid dip sticks

    1. You wish you could impeach – but you know nothing about how the Constitution works or you would know that is not going to happen, no matter how much right wingers stamp their feet and throw tantrums.

      And, the temper tantrums you wingers throw, and the conspiracy theories you nuts base your hatred on – yeah, they make you all look like the incompetent, uninformed fanatics you are. Which is why you cannot win a national election – no majority of Americans wants the country you fools would devolve us into.

    2. This is the kind of veteran who supports, for instance, the Air Force Academy’s listing of Christians as “radical groups” on their list of threats to the country. Newsflash, Moron! Being a vet doesn’t mean a damn thing except that you enlisted. We have soldiers (Pfc. Tariqka Sheffrey, Fort Carson Co) who actually hide for the 1700 flag.

      You want to toss around being a vet like it automatically affords your views more credibility? That in itself exposes you to be the self-impressed moron you are. Being a vet in itself is again, meaningless.

      http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/feb/25/soldier-hides-avoid-saluting-flag-brags-about-it-i/

      “Put more trust in Nobility of Character than in an oath” – Solon

      I’m certain you wouldn’t understand Solon or the “Nobility of Character”. You simply hide behind “I was a vet” like it affords you instant respectability. It does not.

    3. I do; it takes two thirds in the senate. Hmm a Senate Majority plus frustrated democrats who vote yes to impeaching the worse sitting fool other than Jimmy Carter. This clown is starting to make Carter look some what better hard to say but true.

  4. As a Democrat, in 2008, I could not support some unknown who talked the talk, but never walked the walk! I knew he was bad news from the moment I heard his first speech. I prayed that he would surprise everyone and turn out to be the best President America ever had, but, alas, that was not to happen! Obama has proved, numerous times, that he is a Coward and a LIAR, two things that are NOT wanted in a President! Along with all his AntiAmerican and AntiFreedom policies! Obama is nothing more than a Traitor to our Nation and needs to be brought down like a Traitor!

    1. Are you sure your a Democrat? As a army vet that has not been out of the army but for a few years now, I have learned that liberals are pretty much anti-American. I also know that for anyone to support the military, then they can’t be a democrat because they support everything that hurts the military.

    2. As a military veteran myself, I have to say you’re full of it. I love my country and served proudly. I also have volunteered on Election Days to work in the polls for decades, as part of my civic duty. What do you do for civic duty? For free? What do you volunteer for your country? Or does all your energy go to your party first?

      I’m disgusted by right wingers who think they love America more when the truth is, the Right doesn’t give a damn about this nation – only getting their way politically -and if they have to bring the whole country to its knees to get power back, they will. That is not done by people who love country more than party.

    3. “…only getting their way politically”
      And the left doesn’t do that? Bwahahahaha!!! You progtard freak. They’re BOTH corrupt. (But you don’t troll any LEFTIST boards do you, little hypocrite troll?) Of course you don’t.

    4. Roooth, Im with ya brother. Ain’t no use to throwing pearls to swine. These people can’t talk sense.

    5. You can look at five years of waste and distruction and say that? I question your sanity period. Obama I do not question he was a lie from day one period. I question the Blind fools who follow him like stampeading Buffalo, Cattle off a cliff. Some of us saw him for what he was, a ignorant socialist fool and tool..
      What was Obamas grade average when he graduated Harvard?

    6. Rebel, I was raised in a Democratic following family, a farm family and was a Democrat until 2008. Only time I had voted Republican was for Reagan, after Carter proved worthless. I don’t know why I did not change Parties then, when I voted for him both times, but I still thought the Democratic Party had some Honor left. Only time I never voted was in the Gore/Bush election, figured neither were worth spitting on,lol! But in 2008, I saw that the Democratic Party was no longer the Party of my Father and Grandfather, it had changed into something not even recognizable as being “American”! And I was not about to vote for someone who was an unknown, who had all his records Sealed, who could not furnish a BC, and the first speech I heard, I knew Obama was bad news and full of himself, which proved to be true. The Republican Party is getting about as bad, with RINO’s like McCain, who I did vote for, Graham, McConnell, and so many more. I am pretty much Independent now, and will vote for the most Conservative of the bunch, so that sure ain’t the DemonRats, lol! I also served under Presidents Johnson thru Reagan and am a disabled Vet. You are 100% correct in your evaluation of the military being Conservative, but I am now worried about it since HomoBoy Obama took away DODT, and now the perverts are serving openly, committing rapes, and flaunting their sick crap everywhere! People complain that Christians are always throwing Jesus into their faces, well, the Homos and Libs do the same thing. Unless we get some “AMERICAN” Leadership in the WH, we are only going to get worse. Obama and Hitlery deserve Gitmo and Waterboarded!

  5. Obama is not only a traitor, he is a terrorist!!! He has infiltrated this already corrupt Administration with Terrorist’s and he is infiltrating our Military with Terrorist’s at a rapid speed! The American Soldier no longer know who is friend or foe! We have got to stop this insanity and it can’t wait till 2016!!! Our Governing Branches have enough crimes on this Terrorist but with Demrats being majority of Senate and Congress, the minorities hands are tied!!! We have got to reverse the Senate and Congress and keep the House in order to turn this Country around! We will not find the right leaders in the Old School Rhinos either, ya know the ones that change sides as if they are changing their underwear! And we need to put Trey Gowdy in as Majority Speaker of the House!!! People, No Room For mistakes here!!

  6. Honestly, I could not care any less about Russia/Ukraine issues. NONE OF OUR BUSINESS. And, according to polls, most Americans agree with me. Yet, you are still sabre rattling.
    Further, let me tell YOU, we are NOT going to export ANY natural gas or oil. PERIOD! When the great Mr. Bill Clinton was in office, we paid $0.95 per gallon of gasoline and a similar amount for natural gas. NOW, after Bush/Cheney (two oil supporters) and the ineffectual Obama, we NOW pay $3.60 a gallon of gasoline. You talk about fake reasons for the economy going south. How about one of the REAL reasons? That the cost of doing business with Big Oil hammering us on gasoline prices is dragging this economy down!!! If the U.S. exports Natural Gas or oil, we need to have a revolt in this country. It has gotten SOOOO crazy, and without any checks and balances. This once GREAT Country is now run by Lobbyists for Special Interests! Big Oil is just one of them.

    1. With respect, the price of gas went up when the price of oil went up. And that happened when Hugo Chaves got elected for life in Venezuela. At that point the US could no longer get around OPEC prices.

  7. Articles like this one, confirms that the Tea Party is nothing more than a splinter group of the GOP. I am ashamed to be a part of the Tea Party. We NEED a separate 3rd Political party if this country is to survive. The GOP and the DEMS are too far gone to be saved. They are just lackeys for Lobbyists.

    1. Correct! All organic movements that gain public sway are then co-opted by the operatives the groups profess to be against. You tube G. Edward Griffin interviews and Tarpley. TPNN is nothing but a propaganda machine at this point. There is not a single investigative journalist on the roster. I looked. Pure propaganda for the far right’ers to co-opt them to support the entrenched establishment RINO’s under the ruse that the TP is actually against them. There is no left/right paradigm. It is all an orchestrated lie.

  8. “Sending troops into a foreign nation is an act of war”.
    This Writer’s statement is true.
    And, the U.S. has sent troops into how many foreign nations???? Let’s count:
    Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, for starters.
    HYPOCRITE!
    We have become a war like nation, with a HUGE Military Industrial Complex that needs constant wars to feed their industry. General/President Eisenhower warned us about the Military Industrial Complex dangers. Obviously, we didn’t listen to him.

    1. Every one of Caruba’s ‘articles’ are in fact just propaganda pieces in support of the Zionist military industrial complex. He likes to throw in some figures to make it appear that his lies do in fact reflect truth. the reality is exactly what you wrote.

    1. Your comment was rather brief, so I will respectfully ask a few questions.
      Do you think Obama’s policy of reducing the size of the military to pre WW2 levels is still a good idea? What about his decision to stop making F-22s or cutting a trillion dollars out of the military budget over the next ten years?
      How about ending the Iranian sanctions without an agreement to end their nuclear program? Or about having his bluff called in Syria? What about his decision to completely rely of the underperforming F-35? Are we safer with Russia threatening Ukraine, NATO, and the economy of the EU? Or with China threatening Japan, the Philippines, and the US?

      Would we be safer with a different President who wanted to increase the size of our military and expand our oil and natural gas production so we could supply Europe with its energy instead of Russia? Would we be safer if we re-instituted COCOM? Since Obama has opposed all those options, I would say that the Greatest Threat to American Security is Obama. If the next President also opposed those policies, I would say they were the greatest threat to our safety.

  9. Send Obama and the entire Black (Communist) caucus to the Australian Gulags of Christmas Island and Nauru. Similar Gulags have already been built all over America, but are empty. I, for one, am glad of at least that much from this government. As much as America has built itself on being an asylum for refugees from around the world, it cannot afford that now.
    YouTube the refugee camps of Australia if you want to get a cold harsh look into what the Islamo-fascist Obama and his Black caucus of racist freaks have in store for America’s whites. (Yes, we have Gulags today, and they’re real). PNG runs them under contract to Australia’s Immigration Service, and PNG is ran by Americans.
    Gang rapes, suicides, mental abuse, physical abuse…..it’s all happening and it will show up on our shores if we don’t expose the NWO.

    1. “Send Obama and the entire Black (Communist) caucus to the Australian Gulags of Christmas Island and Nauru”

      said a complete idiot.

      “get a cold harsh look into what the Islamo-fascist Obama and his Black caucus of racist freaks have in store for America’s whites.”

      …said one more right wing conspiracy freak – what’s the matter, are you giving up on the “Eric Holder is coming for your guns conspiracy”? Did you need a fresh one to keep the hate flowing? You losers are pathetic.

    2. Is that you, Elijah Cummings? Ha ha, you leftist robots are so dumb downed you are beyond repair. Enjoy your losses in ’14. It’ll be indicative of what’s to come.
      You have no idea what you’re talking about. You have no idea there actually IS a communist wing in Congress, and you have no idea that the Black caucus has totally bought into it. You also have no idea, obviously, about the Gulags I mentioned. You just buy whatever Madcow Maddow and Chris ‘the thrill’ tell you to think.
      You’re pathetic. (I’m not a republican or Libertarian) AND I’m not white. Enjoy your slumber.

    3. Yes, you are white. You admitted that much a while ago Glitch girl. Still can’t get your story straight? You know what? I’m happy the country has you teabaggers. It gives us regular people somethin to laugh about. And Obama is mixed, dumbass. He was raised by a white mom. No, he does not plan to take out you whites. Sheesh. So much dumbness.

    4. Obama IS mixed. He conveniently drops his G’s, as pointed out of him by Samuel L. Jackson, when he is addressing blacks. When he is addressing whites, he has no problem whatsoever throwing around the race card like as if it were a drone deployed to Yemen.

      He was communally raised, but birthed by a Caucasian. Get your story straight, bootlicker.

      I don’t think I would have said I were white. But I would’ve admitted to being Ho Chi Min, if it would’ve caused you to lose interest in stalking me.

    5. Lol. So much conspiracy theory wacko thinking I can’t even begin to unravel this crap. Stalk? hahahahahhahahahahaahhaahahhaa. Don’t flatter yourself. I havent even addressed your craziness in months.

    6. I have not posted here for months. Coincidence? At least you are not following me. That would be gross.

    7. You’re a funny kid. Stop watching fox news, its filling your head with nonsense. As a fellow mixed American, I am sick and tired of y’all teabaggers trying to say Obama is racist. That’s ridiculous. You Glitch girl play the race card like a little girl at the mall with her very first Master Visa.

    8. No offence eddie, but I think you don’t see the liberal philosophy as
      it is. Conservatists want to keep the
      Constitution and the rights they have, that’s what the name means. Liberals are all for change, but have little interest

      The KKK is a racist organization that is pro-non-Catholic, pro-white,
      and anti-Socialist. Just because both
      organizations are anti-Socialist, Liberals think they are the same thing. They are not.
      There are many organizations here in the US that are anti-Socialist that

      of Communism Memorial Foundation, the Western Goals Foundation, and the *TEA
      Party* to name just a few.

      The Tea Party HATES racism and all who are racist. I’ve been to Tea Party gatherings. It’s all about anti-Socialism, Taxes, and Gun
      rights. I have both black and white grandkids
      that I love and am very proud of.
      Liberalism says it’s all about helping the lower classes, but they embrace
      economic policies that endanger our safety, encourage dictators to invade
      helpless countries, and make promises, like an end to poverty, that actually
      create poverty.

  10. Can you imagine the secrets he can tell to other countries, especially with muslim ties about America security while on private vacations!

  11. Too bad Obama wasn’t on that missing Malaysian airliner. That would be one way of getting rid of his dictatorial Presidency.

  12. well, a nice little article…one quick question Mr. Caruba? How many years have you lived abroad – in Europe or otherwise? Oh, never?!! What a surprise! How interesting that you make comments on what the situation is here in Europe then.

    Plus you make several – unsubstantiated – statements such as “At this point, the U.S. has more untapped oil than Saudi Arabia, as well as enough natural gas and coal to make us energy independent.”…could you please quote the scientific literature on this? Oh, and on the rest of your claims as well… See, any article that tries to uses such “facts” and wishes to be taken seriously provides quotes to such claims so that they can be independently verified for accuracy. But I bet you won´t do that because you can´t. Another waste of internet space…
