We must stop our dependence on foreign oil!

WE ABSOLUTELY MUST start weaning ourselves off of crude oil and turning to alternate fuels, such as ethanol or other products/ideas from our incredible entrepreneurs right here in the USA! Check out our alternative fuels section.

There are over 3000 oil platforms just in the Gulf of Mexico. See video 3. We need to stop thinking as ME and start thinking as WE AS A NATION. If the Gulf disaster isn't a wake up call, just imagine the other 3000 platforms in the gulf. The possibility of more well blowouts is very high. The Gulf region is simply a ticking time bomb. Realistically it's time to phase out drilling over time and phase in other alternative fuels. There just isn't any more easy and safe places in and around the USA to drill.

Call it tough love, but we must do our part as Americans by stop wasting gasoline and energy, and start helping just like our grandparents did in the 1930's and 1940's in plane factories, and other facilities to promote alternate fuels, and stop the partisan politics today! No more Drill Baby Drill. It's Innovation Baby Innovation!

Just imagine... let me repeat this - just imagine if Americans took this issue seriously back in 1973, we would never see the horrendous problems that we face today as a nation with our energy policy and the greed, and accidents that are inevitable with our oil research practices. Just imagine if some of the countries like Saudi Arabia, Venezuela or Nigeria stop selling oil to the USA, this nation would be in total disarray within a few short months, not to mention the overall security of the USA!

Ethanol (ethyl alcohol, grain alcohol), according to the US Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory, is a "clear, colorless liquid with a characteristic, agreeable odor"

A blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline, can be used in flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs), which are specially designed to run on gasoline, E85, or any mixture of the two. FFVs are offered by several vehicle manufacturers. More

Ethanol really works - just ask Indy or the IRL - both have been using pure ethanol for several years!! - See video!

Hydrogen has the potential to revolutionize transportation and, possibly, our entire energy system. The simplest and most abundant element in the universe, hydrogen can be produced from fossil fuels and biomass and even by electrolyzing water. Producing hydrogen with renewable energy and using it in fuel cell vehicles holds the promise of virtually pollution-free transportation and independence from imported petroleum. More

Biodiesel is a renewable alternative fuel produced from a wide range of vegetable oils and animal fats. Pure biodiesel or biodiesel blended with petroleum diesel can be used to fuel diesel vehicles, providing energy security and emissions and safety benefits. More

Natural gas is a domestically produced alternative fuel and is readily available to end users through the utility infrastructure. It can produce significantly fewer harmful emissions than gasoline or diesel when used in natural gas vehicles. More

Clean Coal is possible! Product removes 90% of carbon from coal! More

Wind Energy is very real! More

Thoughts and Facts:

  • There just isn't any more safe places in and around the US to drill
  • It's time to phase out drilling over time and phase in other alternative fuels
  • This nation could use ethanol or a 85% blend in most vehicles with little cost to the consumer
  • There are millions and millions of unused acres of land across the USA that could be used to grow corn and sugar cane
  • It's true that costs are higher than gas in limited production, but when it is mass produced on the millions of available  acreage, it will be available at a reasonable price
  • The expansion of green fuels could and would employ millions of Americans

  • America needs to stop stalling - it's time for action - it's time for bio fuels
  • America must stop our dependence on foreign oil

Did you know? One 42-gallon barrel of crude oil creates only 19.4 gallons of gasoline. The rest is used to make other things like:
