Where would we be without fossil fuels?

Where are the praise and thank you's for fossil fuels? Time and time again, this past winter, fossil fuels have come to the rescue of people all over the world so they can maintain their affluent lifestyles.

Where would Germany be without coal? Where would many European Union countries be without U.S. liquefied natural gas, LNG?

In fact, because of the hypocrite climate activists restricting pipelines into the Northeast, Massachusetts relies heavily on LNG shipments into Boston Harbor. Climate activists think they have stopped the flow of natural gas into western Massachusetts. 

No, they have not!

Ask yourself, where would the residents of Franklin County be without fossil fuels? When solar panels are covered with snow or there are more cloudy days than sun? Sans, no wind turbines in western Mass. How would you charge your EV?

Spoiler alert, the Nantucket Sound wind turbine farm will never be completed for many reasons, one being it’s too cost prohibitive. New Jersey stopped an off shore wind turbine project recently due to mysterious whale deaths.

Stop the charade. Unless you want to live in a cabin burning wood for heat and using candles for light like the 1800s, there would be no one left in Franklin County without fossil fuels.

Texas or Florida, anyone!
