Although the Environmentalists and the Democrats want to get rid of fossil fuels, there is an underlining desire to make money. The people that have investment in the alternative energy are counting on the government to make fossil fuels more expensive so that they can make more profit. Some of the so-called Green Energies put out more carbon than fossil fuels, but the green energy may release carbon directly or indirectly. The Environmentalists and the Democrats want to switch from fossil fuels to green sources, but the Green sources have to be ready available as well as having a distribution system which are at least 20 years away. It is foolish to say just do it, but that is how the Democrats want it.
Until an alternative energy source is readily available, fossil fuel will be needed. In some industries fossil fuels shall needed to provide the necessary safety, energy, and time requirements. But for the crude oil and natural gas has only about 50 to 150 years before the sources will not be able to keep up with demand. So, this is to explain how to manage our fossil fuel reserves until a replacement is widely available.
Although many people believe that the carbon in crude oil is the biggest problem the world is facing, it is not. Fossil fuel and carbon is explained in my “Climate Change a Disaster, Lies, and a Con Job All Rolled Into One”
Natural gas is also limited, even more limited than crude oil, so it would be a band-aid solution at best. So, we are not going to discuss this issue.
Coal is almost considered to be taboo because of the carbon it releases, but that is not the only problem, there is the soot and ash. The soot is so fine that it gives the people breathing problems. The ash contains toxic chemicals.
