Agreed. Which are generally same people producing natural gas who run a lot of power plants. The distinction is the difference between what goes in your gasoline/diesel car/truck and what runs your TV, computer, phone, etc. That's why the natural gas producers put this kind of propaganda into the airwaves.Right wing idiot, pro fracking, oil soaked crap.
The only problem there is Germany has a population of 83 mil while US has a population of 330 mil. Plus Germans pay 5.50 per gal. I just filled up for 1.79. I agree I like Hydro electric but then again tree huggers won't permit to build a dam. We cry about gas and oil but enjoy all the benefits it brings.Germany, a country without a sizeable natural oil/hydrocarbon resource, has renewable energy consumption in excess of 45% of total electricity in the country. They have a goal of 80%.
I know that eventually oil and gas will be replaced by something. I just don't really expect to see it in my lifetime. Maybe in my grandson's. It's simply a matter when.Look at algae reactors, a renewable source. It can produce diesel oil (biofuel). It's called a reactor because it's fueled by sunshine, and it can use waste water and water with high salinity. I read once that a reactor farm the equivalent size of New Mexico could provide the oil and gas needs of the Western hemisphere. Wikipedia states that a reactor farm half the size of Maine could produce ALL the petroleum needs of the US, and it burns cleaner.
