So,Why are you here?? Because You Care!!
t's fashionable and convenient to ask what our Government is doing about the energy shortages and high energy prices of today.
Unfortunately I was in the Heating and Air Conditioning business in the 70's and know exactly how we got here and what the reality
of the situation is that we find our selves in now. That knowledge does not allow me to convey to you a plan that resolves of our
current energy problems in the near term.
There is no magic bullet for the ills that trouble us. America has long pursued a
national policy of cheap, low cost energy, to help mitigate economic ills caused by a bloated governmental bureaucracy and unaffordable
political programs filled with excess and waste. To date in 2007 the united states consumes 20,700,000 bbls of oil a day while China is the
second largest user weighs in at 6,500,000 bbls. a day. Our country and has steered a different course of national energy policies than those
of Europe and the rest of the industrialized world.
We have had policies and laws in place that would have made electric cars
and alterative fuels a stable and viable part of our energy infrastructure but because of special interests and lack of consistent national
energy policy over the years since the 70's those laws have been repealed even before scheduled implementation dates and allowed to languish
and die unmourned deaths.
We truly believe that 30 to 40 % of that figure is wasted by inefficient and ineffective systems and infrastructure. If this figure is close to accurate then we can save up to 5 million barrels of oil today.
Unfortunately, conserving resources at this point will only temporarily postpone the inevitable, which is total energy resource exhaustion.
Unless the lifestyles, and transportation habits, of the ever-increasing population that demand more, and more resources are dramatically
changed, or new energy sources are discovered, conserving won't save us.
W e must focus our efforts on an unbiased national energy policy
and it must be done now.
