My Turn: 75 miles per gallon is here

And climate change is here too, it always has been with or without man’s contribution of CO2 if you think about it. Nothing is static in nature and complaining about change … is just static. However, whether good or evil, recent increases in CO2 are evident and since we don’t have a crystal ball there is no need to willy-nilly create excess CO2. But we don’t need to crush our prosperity with climate mania and overregulation either.

The great paradox our administration has saddled and continues to ride is doing most anything and everything to handcuff fossil fuel development here in the U.S., ignoring the fact that natural gas is the silver bullet. It’s the perfect successor to crude oil with its sulphur and blending problems, and coal, which produces twice the CO2 per BTU than natural gas. We need to expand existing natural gastechnology revolutionizing our transportation system and electrical generation for a clean and economic healthy future. These are the largest producers of CO2 emissions in the U.S. since industry and manufacturing have been chased off shore to places like India and China.

Herein lies the greatest paradox of all. By displacing our manufacturing and industry mostly to China, giving them the pollution problems we no longer have to look at and breathe, we have given away the strength of our national economy in manufacturing jobs and industrial leadership while at the same time added staggering new levels of worldwide CO2. We have clean energy now, more available than our wildest imaginations might conceive, yet enviro-zealots in this country are still willing to have China do our bidding using astronomical amounts of the world’s dirties fossil fuel. Asia now consumes more coal than the rest of the world combined.

About one half of all added atmospheric CO2 since the mid 1800s is a result of burning coal. Why hasn’t Congress taken the reins and started issuing permits for NG production on federal land? Who is kidding who? The Department of Energy could have had us well on our way to energy independence and tremendous new export markets with a booming economic revival years ago.

The EPA should be hysterical over the potential to cut a monster carbon footprint in half by promoting development of NG production across the nation. Instead of issuing new permits to grow exports of coal to Asia, they should be issuing those permits to export LNG to the same customers (six miles of coal-filled railroad cars arrive at three west-coast ports headed for China every day). Domestic production and export of natural gas (liquefied natural gas and compressed natural gas) is not just the answer to significantly reducing CO2, but it’s the vehicle to get this country back in the black.

So why the straightjacket on our natural gas production? It’s about keeping fuel tax revenues in place that strengthen federal hegemony. And it’s about manipulating the bulwark of environmental regulation for political security, keeping the wool over the public eye with inflated concerns over fracking impacts, etc. But advancing the image of greener is not working.

Think about this, why are diesel Land Rovers that get 33 mpg sold world wide except in the U.S. where you can only buy the gasoline version at 12 mpg? Why are Peugeot electric/diesel hybrids that get 100 mpg, the Peugeot 306 CDI at 64 mpg and the Volkswagen Blutek Polo at 74 mpg not legal in the U.S.? Ford makes a diesel version of the Ranger light truck and the Escape right here in the U.S., but only for export. Why? Because it would mean a big loss in fuel taxes.

An average of all American built cars today gets 21 mpg. Nearly a century ago the model T ford got … 21 mpg. How is it possible a devolved democratic nation that sends men to the moon and puts a cell phone in every pocket can’t wean itself off gasoline? The answer is our entire legislative system, “our representatives” have become representatives for big oil. It no longer is a democracy as we knew it.

Our government, the ruling elite wedded to revenues, only supports environmental responsibility for money. If they really cared about our environment, they would unlock the potential of natural gas, and eventually allow a fuel cell economy to blossom with zero CO2 emissions leaving fossil fuels to fall out in a free market. Wouldn’t it be sweet to have a plug-in electric/natural gas hybrid that got 75 mpg at $1.50 per gallon equivalent?

Only your legislators and regulators are to blame; industry is ready and so are we. The NRA has vigorously protected our Second Amendment from legislators, maybe an NRG (energy) organization can do the same for a new energy policy with modern transportation at significantly less cost to us … and the environment.

    9 out of 10 government funded scientists believe man-made global warming is real. Can you imagine a better racket? Getting millions and millions in grant money to promote a fraud. All you have to do is just keep repeating it. Indoctrinate kids from birth and presto-chang0, an endless money supply. When all the doom you predicted to the last generation doesn't happen, change the name and just keep selling it to the next generation. With the dwindling IQ being produced in the communist run public schools it is actually getting easier.

    Cookie, That's what gvmnt WANTS you to believe. Of those 9 scientists many CAN"T speak the truth, to wit, Dr Howser and his firing from the Dept of Interior. Many scientists are forced to tow the line of the Agency... but not all. Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne and professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide, He says; "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you". "I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth. Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over One year - think about it".

    AND... "Of course, I shouldn't spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change. And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the brush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year. Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario. Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention 'Global Warming' Anymore, but just 'Climate Change' - you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got caught with their pants down."

    Here I am! By many criteria I'm "one of those" (lib/left). I fully understand that the IPCC / Al Gore et al have perpetrated a fraud. I fully understand that true science does not seek "consensus". I fully understand that CO2 is not a pollutant. I fully understand that we are being "reorganized" for profit. And as for volcanoes, the Yosemite fire (and others), well, what can I say? Up the carbon tax!!!

    For the record, on 8/12/13 I cited Plimer HERE: "The volcanic eruption in Iceland , … Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you. Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life. . . . And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY." ********** So take it back, rod and cookie; my pants are firmly in place!!! This left/right nonsense is as simplistic as "climate change".

    The USGS says anthropogenic CO2 emissions are 130 times those of all volcanoes. The American Geophysical Union says it's 135 times. In 2011 Plimer said climate change is real and humans contribute.

    A hat tip to you Evelyn, there are some exceptions. But the more I get into the 'inards' of the EPA the more political it gets. Its difficult to fathom how regressive we are becoming in the name of progress, we are now just the premier Banana Republic. And James, you're not offended that the country you have fought for is denying you that 75mpg? That's the whole point of the letter... it has NOTHING to do with GW and everything to do with party dynamics.

Over the years, I've learned that going bat s@it crazy about most every thing (I was a real hot head when I was young) only causes me now to have to take an extra blood pressure pill.

The POLAR BEAR is now on the T&E list because the EXPECTED global warming impact 'may' harm its environment. USFWS fails to mention IT IS A BEAR... IT'IS A PROBLEM AT LAND FILLS IN ALASKA... and just like ALL URSOIDS... it will adapt to abundant alternate food sources. It's folks like Foaming that have such faith in the USGS that 'Lysenkoism' ... just couldn't happen here. Right?

    James, buddy, you are at your pinnacle of knowledge, right? The older we get the better we perceive change yada yada... WHERE did you get the notion polar bears need ice ... of any kind. If they don't have seals to eat (which are also 'endangered') they will eat FISH just like millions of brown bear... or eskimoes ... just as nutritious. POLAR BEARS have MASSIVE webbed feet... just for swimming all day. They are considered aquatic by their morphology alone, not to mention diet..Like brown bear, they move seasonally for the easy pickings, salmon runs and human habitats etc,etc

    Rod: Thanks for the really useful polar bear info. That iconic photo of the poor helpless stranded polar floating out to polar bear doom was most convincing and probably has raised hundreds of thousands (millions?) of $$$s to save us from global warming/cooling/climate change. My guess is that the greater danger to polar bears is diminution of food supplies resulting from man-made sea pollution.

    I think I understand the polar bear thing now. Liberals believe there may be global warming which melts the ice and puts the polar bear at risk (Evelyn, polar bears can swim for 220 miles -- let's assume that is a firm number -- what if the polar bear swims 220 miles and the ice/land mass is still 50 miles away -- guess the polar bear drowns, and what if she has her babies swimming with her -- guess they drowned 210 miles back). Conservatives believe we are about to have a mini-ice age and therefore there will be plenty of ice/land mass for the polar bears. Every thing seems to be political, doesn't it.

    This letter strikes a cord with me. I've been a diesel mechanic for 20+ years and have for years told people about the technology that we have right here to make our engines achieve at least a min. of 50 miles per gallon. The ironic thing is that it seems were having to burn twice as much fossil fuel to achieve what the powers that be claim to be clean air. Like I tell my customers try walking around all day breathing through a straw. It's going to be pretty tough and that is what is happening to all engines these days (gas or diesel). These engines are so choked down that they cannot breathe. If we were remove half of the emission devices that are on vehicles today, fuel economy would skyrocket and guess what it would be just as clean out the tailpipe if not cleaner because we have a much more efficient explosion in the combustion chamber. Anybody remember the VW Rabbit, that thing got around 50 mpg and that was with 1970's tech. Imagine what it could do now. If I had a nickel for everytime someone asked me how to get better mpg, I could retire. My point to all of this is that there no reason why all vehicles should not get better mpg then they are today but the Govt. just keeps shoving more potatoes in the tailpipes.

    kgg: Are you out there? Remember that thing about 97% (or whatever %) of all scientists agreeing. Well ... we can relax just a tad now. The IPCC (U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) may be calling off the planetary emergency. HERE: IPCC now believes that in the 21st Century, Atlantic Ocean circulation collapse is “very unlikely,” ice sheet collapse is “exceptionally unlikely,” and catastrophic release of methane hydrates from melting permafrost is “very unlikely.” You can read it for yourself in Chapter 12 Table 12.4 of the IPCC’s forthcoming Fifth Assessment Report.
