Excellent video trailer fully addresses the biggest economic problem on the planet Earth.
Love the line “Do you want the Government to decide the fuel you use”. You might even get Tea Party types excited with that logic.
Actually,, Having Government decide what fuel to use,, wouldn’t be such a bad thing if the Captains of industry and Government were righteous in their decision making. But of course such is not the case. Why? Look at the money trail. Greed is a powerful motivator!
My main concern is safety. I like natural gas for fuel. What are the pros and the cons?
Thank you Andres. Natural gas is perhaps one of the most practical transportation options for the United States to decrease its dependence on foreign oil and reduce its vulnerability to outside threats. There are many ways to address safety. For one, the bulk of our national security budget is spent on protecting oil routes in oil-rich regions. A domestic and abundant fuel supply (in this case, natural gas) has the potential to substantially enhance U.S. natural security and reduce costs. In terms of health and the environment, for the last 15 years, petroleum has accounted for more carbon dioxide emissions than coal or natural gas. Gasoline and diesel are the number one air pollutants. Fuel additives and tailpipe emissions have been linked to a wide range of health problems, including cardiovascular disease and cancer, and are linked to 6 million deaths per year. In the U.S. there are strict safety guidelines for CNG as a fuel in cars, including requirements for storage tanks, refueling, etc. Here is brief on natural gas safety. When released in a spill, it is much less toxic to the environment and dissipates quickly.
Thank you for the inspiration!
