Romney's plan for U.S energy independence is 100% possible
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he aims for the United States to become energy independent by 2020.
How is energy independence possible ?. The U.S have the world's largest proven energy reserves. The Federal government , Obama's administration is killing energy development with overly burdensome regulations.
New technologies have opened up massive quantities of natural gas reserves in the US . Imported oil costs seven times as much as natural gas for the same amount of energy.
American industry is in the process of converting from imported oil to natural gas.Over twenty U.S states have been found to have natural gas reserves.
Natural gas is the cleanest carbon based energy in the world. Romney will lead America to energy independence.
We have the worlds largest energy reserves. It is time to embrace change and do what works and what is profitable. Investing and producing more domestic energy would create good jobs and bolster are economy .
The US energy independence is very achievable when you factor in all sources; petroleum, shale oil, natural gas, methane hydrates, coal, solar, wind, hydropower, tides, nuclear power, bio-diesel and geothermal heat.
US has enormous natural gas deposits of 2,543 trillion cubic feet. At the current rates of use of 24 trillion cubic feet per year in 2012 that’s enough for more than 100 years.
The United States has the largest known deposits of oil shale in the world, according to the Bureau of Land Management and holds an estimated 2.175 trillion barrels of potentially recoverable oil.
The United States has world's largest coal reserves 238.3 billion at least a 250-year supply of coal.The United States has 30% of all the world's coal reserves.
Then there is methane hydrates a resource which US it possesses 330,000 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in its methane hydrate resource.
The US has enough methane hydrates enough to supply the country with natural gas for 15,000 years . U.S. Energy department has announced the completion of a successful, unprecedented test of technology in the North Slope of Alaska that was able to safely extract a steady flow of natural gas from methane hydrates .
The United States has 28% of all the world's coal reserves.
US is launching a new research effort to conduct a long-term production test in the Arctic as well as research to test additional technologies that could be used to locate, characterize and safely extract methane hydrates on a larger scale in the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Renewable energy sources will functionally never run out such as solar, wind, hydro-power, tides, and geothermal heat.
Due to concerns about global warming and diminishing fossil fuel supplies, renewable energy is an increasingly common and important source of energy.
The batteries they are an important way to store primary energy into a small portable form. Batteries provide power to a great many devices and vehicles.
Other major energy sources include nuclear power and living plants, which can be either burnt or converted into fuels such as bio-diesel
The US can cut 100% on its foreign oil dependence by investing in, oil, oil shale, natural gas, methane hydrates , coal, wind and solar power.
As long as we're going to use oil, natural gas, coal then we might as well work to draw it from home, or as close to it as possible . Romney will lead America to energy independence.
Mitt Romney will make our nation much stronger by bringing back millions of energy jobs to America.
