Are you confused about our energy crisis? It’s no wonder, given the amount of disinformation that is being pedaled by Republicans and those with a vested interest in oil, coal and nuclear energy. What they want you to believe is that solar and wind cannot replace our current energy sources. John McCain repeated these lies in his recent debate with Barack Obama. Their calls of drill baby drill are absurd and misleading. For example, the amount of oil reserves estimated to exist off California’s coast are 10 billion barrels. The U.S. consumes about 7.5 billion barrels per year. So what they are advocating is risking the long term health of the coastal ecosystem, in exchange for about 16 months worth of oil.
The more nuclear reactors are build all over the world, the more fissionable material there will be, which can be stolen by terrorists and used against us. Just look at the concern over Iran’s nuclear program. How many times may this kind of scenario be played out if nuclear energy proliferates all over the world?
For Florida residents who own homes along the coast; the thought of having oil drilled just off the coast isn’t the best of thoughts. Imagine, looking out your front window every morning and seeing the large drilling work. So what you say, we need oil and that is where it is. I do agree with that sentiment, but I also would like to ask, if this the best place to drill? Deciding upon practical secrets for cordless dewalt drill. We have all heart that we could drill oil in Alaska-bet there aren’t as many tourists up there are there are in Florida!
The first of these basic principles is to send more job applications out. It is common to send 5 job applications and get no response. But send out 100 competently written cover letters/resume and you should start to see some decent results. Prosecuting a successful job hunt is much the same as prosecuting a successful war. You need both quantity and quality.
It’s really easy to fix spelling mistakes nowadays. MS-Word has a feature to detect and fix spelling and grammar mistakes (red squiggly underline for the former, green for the latter). The free word processing program, Open Office, has similar functionality. Just run your cover letter and resume through one of these programs before you submit your job application so that you don’t look like a fool.
Once the grid is clean energy, it can power much of our transportation as well. At that point, electric cars will make perfect sense and we will have had more time, to perfect the technology. If you study these two plans, you will see that they have much in common. By combining the best ideas of these and other similar plans, we can get the job done.
This one is off the charts ridiculous. To the point it almost works as satire. Watch the video from the McCain campaign and keep in mind, John McCain voted against offshore drilling in 2003. Against it.
Summary: Cable – tool rigs are the oldest way of drilling oil wells. This technique has been overtaken by rotary rigs with much more efficiency and advantages. Cable – tools rigs are now used only to spud or begin the hole for drilling the wells. The majority of the drilling work is completed by the rotary rigs.
