    America doesn’t yet have replacement for fossil fuels


    June 27, 2022 - Staff Writer

     

      It's far from a surprise to anyone that President Biden is getting ripped by Americans for his existing war on fossil fuels. It's beyond me, but I'm at a loss: Why didn't anyone think about having a reliable replacement/replacements available to replace our gas driven vehicles before he and his administration declared war on the oil industry? Electric vehicles haven't yet been perfected for long distance travel, and hydrogen driven engines are just a dream of the future!

      War on the oil industry was declared in March 2020, when Biden proclaimed, "No. 1, no more subsidies for fossil fuel industry. No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill period, period, ends, number one." The quote is rambling, but I've rechecked it and it remains as delivered. As you can see President Biden made it very clear how deep his hate for the fossil fuel industry runs very early in his bid for the presidency.

      I must ask: Does the sinking economy and current high gas prices have any relationship anything to President Biden's abysmal approval rating? You bet it does! And polls continue to show that President Biden's approval rating with Americans between the ages of 18-34 is bleak and getting bleaker by the day.

      I find it pathetic that President Biden has chosen to visit Saudi Arabia – a state he once called a "pariah" – with egg on his face and hat in hand to plead that they increase their oil production. The correct solution to our existing gas crisis is obvious, we need to return to drilling for oil right here at home. Becoming energy independent again is the answer.

      Americans want/need gas – and they want it now – at a price they can afford! Maybe in the future we'll find the perfect answer to replace fossil fuels, but at the moment we're far from ready for any move to an alternative energy source.
