The green energy programs have failed but continue to consume taxpayer dollars and put our national and personal budgets deeper into the red.
Someone needs to tell the Democratic Party, especially those imbedded in the U.S. Senate, that green is not ready, but blue is.
The gas being extracted and ready to be extracted from the earth in our county will provide thousands of jobs, reduce the cost for heating and electricity, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil, thus providing the energy security now so important to our futures.
With the Middle East in constant turmoil, no one can predict the sustainability of our energy needs.
Additionally, money-hungry international speculators drive up the cost of energy for everyone on the planet. Billionaire speculators get richer and you get poorer.
Natural gas is a greener way to supply energy to the American consumer. In fact natural gas is the cleanest fossil fuel, with 45 percent less carbon dioxide emissions than coal and 30 percent less than fuel oil.
The "carbon footprint" for a home using natural gas is 50 percent smaller than a home using electric for heat and water heating.
With alternative and renewable energy currently meeting only 6 percent of the nation's energy needs, natural gas is the fuel that should be supported by our Democratic congressmen.
Natural gas is an abundant, reliable domestic energy source that can help our country reach carbon emission standards today. We can quit subsidizing the wind generator and solar panel industry, run our vehicles on gas, repeal the Alternative and Renewable Energy Portfolio Act and reduce our energy cost.
The future of green power will come from blue natural gas.
