No, what is ignorant is making statements like, "We can do this, and that." Without providing any depth to the statement.
Like I said Google can be your friend and links were even provided however you ignore them and right on cue come back with completely asinine and
inane statements like this as per your mo, gee what a suprise... Sigh!
And why are petroleum products useful? Why are they used in manufacturing? Why is the Earth currently dependent on oil? Maybe you should
consider these things when you make statements about all petroleum products having feasible alternatives.
I would not usually bother answering your inane statements but for the benefit of others the earth is dependent on oil because the
Rockefellers/Standard oil and Dupont bought and paid for politicians to pass the Volstead Act (prohibition) so they could corner the market for oil.
Prior to that Ethanol was the fuel/solvent of choice.
David Blumes Book Alcohol Can Be A Gas. Very well researched and documented.
Plastics are just the tip of the iceberg. There are solvents and precursors essential to the drug industry. There are solvents that are
essential to many manufacturing industries. Then we touch agriculture and the uses are endless... I suppose if you knew this you would have addressed
it originally though.
Like I have said if one does some research they will find that there are viable non-patroleum based alternatives to 90% of them and as far as drugs go
80-90% of them are simply poisons we could do without and the things they claim to be remedies for there are natural remedies that don't cause 14
other ailments in you worse then the one they pretend to cure. One only need watch all the TV commercials peddling these poisons and telling the
people all the nasty things they will do to you but then say they will cure what ails you... Sigh
But, the problem is it will always turn into a circular argument. Or just simply posting links to a green energy advocates blog, without doing
any real research yourself.
Translation: Anything that does not agree with my extremely limited view and irrational bias will not be considered... Big sigh!
So when you have a realistic opinion of how petroleum would become obsolete overnight, please let me know.
Do you really think people see your ridiculous statements like these as authoritative? LOL!
Of course this is also another one of your inane tactics to falsely characterize things. I never said petroleum would become obsolete overnight or
period. There will probably be some uses for it for a long time to come. However we do not need to be dependent on it as we are especially for fuels.
There would have to be a transition period. However first big oils strangle hold on politicians would have to be released that is the main problem.
Repeal all the prohibitions on competing products like hemp and alcohol etc. and let things happen naturally.
And for any fool that is going to spout off media rhetoric about Alcohol they have not researched about it not being viable do your research first.
Brazil runs 50% of their cars on alcohol AND THEY IMPORT "NO OIL" and they only use about 1% of their farmland to produce the feedstock. So it is a
proven viable alternative renewable clean fuel. And please do not say it causes food shortages that is the biggest myth of all.
