    It's really too bad you didn't express the same doubts about the billions of dollars BHO wasted on his ridiculous whims. You didn't support them, did you?
    I have no idea what you're talking about. There is a big problem with nuclear waste disposal. You disagree?

    Why don't you list these problems you claim are there and then we'll look at it.

    Oh, so the technology isn;t there yet? Still need oil?

    Then what was your point on cars running on electricity? That it can be done?

    Thats been true for generations.

    That it is a feasible idea now or in the near future? Of course not.

    The fact is that there are types who want all traditional sources of energy stopped or curtailed without having any alternatives in place. It seems they really do believe that a president with no business experience whatsoever, in fact no achievements to speak of at all, can solve the world's energy problems.

    Local paper today is all over this issue, they say that very few long term, or permanent jobs will be made.
    Permanent jobs will likely take a major change in how we do business, not short term projects....

    So the local paper wants big long term projects, do they?

    Did they offer up any ideas?

    Yes. Methane production, since there is enough bull**** from the right on this pipeline issue to fuel the state for 100 years

    The problem is pretty obvious. We're producing more nuclear waste than we can safely store or reprocess.

    The point is that we do have the ability to reduce our oil consumption by better than 50% using existing technology. It's a little expensive at the moment, but the price will come down with increased volume, and it will become more practical as we build the necessary infrastructure to support it. That has not been true for generations.

    We could, of course, speed up adoption by offering bigger incentives and/or increasing gas taxes.

    I'll ignore the strawman arguments and partisan hack nonsense that is the rest of your post.
