how about if these vehicles are then also fitted with engine and cab fire suppression systems,
they are in most boats and are straight forward to install,
would much rather see Boone have my money then an overseas troublemaker

I agree. CNG is a viable solution for local travels only. Keep gasoline for longer range driving and diesel for heavy duty incl large haulers (pickups) etc.

BUT We still need to drill until the infrastructure for CNG is available. We also need nukes, coal, and wind.

If congress would tell the greenies that they cannot block newest technology efforts* in any of these remedies, it would be less than 5 years to independence.

Oil drilling can be done cleanly, safely and cost effectively and never harm a seal, bear or whatever. I just traveled through Wyoming and saw hundreds of cattle and Pronghorn Antelope co-existing with current wells/refineries.

And in spite of repeated efforts, I have yet to get reputable, peer reviewed scientific studies showing any dispositive link to man made warming!

* Newest technology being the safest, cleanest, most cost effective in any technology. For example, nuclear plants can be built very safe, clean and cost effective right now using 20 year old methods.

Wretched excess is just barely enough.

As long as we are not lining Mr. Pickens' pocket, then I am all for R & D in every alternative area. But I saw T.B. in an interview and he admits that he is in it for the money. He has made and lost millions and like out new pres. is a smooth talker. Maybe it is just me, but as soon as someone says "everybody knows" or "wait that's not all" I turn and run the other way.

Never underestimate the power
of stupid people in large groups
