Maybe he would approve of going back to horse drawn carts. Has anyone worked out how much green house gas a horse produces per day? It still produces when it isnt hitched to the buggy, so the greenhouse gas factored per kn or mile must be a very uncool number.
Kevin,
Great idea, except we have one Congressional U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, from the great state of New York, who proposes to ban equines as well as cattle for that very reason. It's in her New Green Deal proposal, which is a radical ban on ALL sources of greenhouse gases in a relatively short period of time. Of course, this would virtually destroy our economy, but I think not only do elitists like her don't care, it would actually push us further towards a Socialistic government. Sleepy Joe has stated he is against this, but when the left wing puppet masters pull his strings, we'll see what really happens?

Like the old sergeant said when the barrage began: For what we are about to receive let us be truly thankful.

I think that what the greenies in geneneral don't get is that the world isn't getting any smaller and energy requirement wont go down. So if it isn't going to come from fossil fuel, then where? Forget solar and wind, it is a nice idea, but a drop in the ocean. Nuclear is the only alternative, and a good alternative, but they hate that too. The real problem is increasing population, so until they 1. Force the galloping nations to curb population, 2. Accept nuclear, they have no grounding to attack fossil fuels, cows etc. You and I giving up steak will achieve absolutely nothing. Nothing new here, we all know this, but it is the elephant in their rooms.

Yes, I know AOC well, good looking lass, pity about the kak ideas. You know, there was a time there where I thought she and Donald could have worked together on some common ground issues.

Absolutely this.

Without oil and NG, we couldn't support the current world's population. During the late oughts and early teens in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, New Mexico, and North Dakota, we discovered enough NG to support US consumption for about 2 centuries. Nuclear is orders of magnitude more efficient than oil/NG/coal, which is orders of magnitude more efficient than wood fires and horses

If only they would simply revert to the 19th century. But it is far more insidious than that. The single most egregious bit of short range thinking by these remarkably ignorant utopians is the idea of giving up our hard earned energy independence. Being dependent upon Mideast energy production since WWII has not been an entirely successful international strategy. But the utopians would rather give up that independence, embracing instead an urban environment born vision of a world of too expensive traditional energy where the obedient citizenry would be reliant upon "clean" mass transit, bicycle paths, and a relatively few and very expensive electric vehicles. And naturally, such an enlightened race of beings would soon no longer require protein from the grotesque farming of livestock, embracing instead a "healthy" vegan diet supplemented by laboratory created replacements for actual meat. Should be a delightful place.

I wonder how many jobs will be lost if fusion is developed.
Curious to see how Biden´s "New Green Deal" will play out.. You see, it is the same story here in Europe.. The problem is that you and I will get the bill. Fuel and food will soare and they do not have a clue how to replace jobs lost..if they stop the use of fossile fuel prematurely.. I am in oil and see through their lies..

The bottom line is: - If we go green to fast the standard of living will be signifcantly reduced..

The know it, but they don´t care...they will go on with it no matter what..

Ultimately, probably won't be dissimilar to the crash in buggy whip manufacturing once automobiles became a thing.

Market disruptions due to tech advances aren't fun, but ultimately benefit us all via efficiency gains.

Renewables are less efficient than O&G and nuclear, by quite a wide margin. Since they are less efficient, there is only one way for the market to react: scarcity and increases in price.

Frigging hilarious. Tucker actually knows a thing or two about firearms and is a strong supporter of the 2d Amendment. Mockery of the concerned left is a good thing.


And of course during the election nonsense, much of "our" media decided Tucker along with the rest of Fox were "traitors." Wish we hand more friends in the media like him.
FINALLY! I now know what "the shoulder thing that goes up" is. I'm shocked to find I actually have one. Thanks for posting! :LOL:

They blat and bellow about cutting greenhouse gas and carbon emissions yet they fly all over the world for these conferences. Pray tell the logic in that. Oh, I forgot. It's dem dumb democraps. Guess that justifies it all.

They're not stupid, they're tyrants. Rules are only for the unwashed and benighted, not the "enlightened" class.

So I noticed during the inauguration Biden was being shadowed by what looked like Jacky Chang.... is this guy with the Secret Service or was he placed there by a foreign country looking to protect their “asset”?

I’m pretty sure that will depend on which special interest groups you belong to or believe in.

If you think taking over the best economy in history and in short order reducing the US to third world status is the sign of a great president, then probably so.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
