Re: Gore on Renewable Energy
there is nothing wrong with oil dependancy, as long as that dependancy is coming from our own operations, IE getting off of foreign oil and onto our own.
Bottom line is we need to drill more and refine enough to meet our consumption amount. And its not that terribly difficult of a task. We have ANWR and trillion something under the Dakotas ready to be tapped.
besides, if its cost people are worried about, anything is going to cost. If we all go to electric cars then guess what, price per kilowatt/hr will skyrocket. If we had cars that run off of water, price per gallon of water will skyrocket. If its not one fuel cost, its another. I laugh at people who think electric cars are the answer, "ZOMG i plug my car into the wall every night and i dont have to ever buy gas again!" but then their electric bill goes from $200 to $600 a month cause they are trickle charging every night. That $400 a month increase is probably $100 more than what they were paying for gas every month. Not to mention our power grid isnt capable of the demands even if a mere 10% of the population had 1 electric car, not to mention if half the population had 2 or more.
