“We will make so much money from energy that we’ll start to pay down our $19 trillion in debt.”
These words were uttered by Donald Trump at a press conference in North Dakota on Thursday 26 May 2016, where Trump reiterated his loathing for Wind and Solar. Stating that Wind is very expensive and does not work without massive subsidies. “Wind turbines kill hundreds of eagles” he said, “if you kill an eagle you go to jail, but these things kill hundreds and thousands of them every year.”
He also said that Solar’s 30 year return on Investment period is just so impractical, though Solar is still useful in certain situations. He’s in favor of drilling, fracking, coal, ethanol, the keystone pipeline, you name it. His goal is “energy independence for the United States.” Oh how I wish somebody would bring to his attention the potential of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) as a massive game changer in the Energy Industry for accelerated energy independence.
