Default Fox News refuses to run clean energy ad

http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmi...limate_ad.html

Basically the ad claims that we should be interested in clean energy so we're not giving so much money to Middle Eastern countries for oil. Fox News claims the ad is too confusing.

I wonder if this has anything to do with Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal now being one of the biggest shareholders of Newscorp?

WorldNetDaily\\\\\\\\\\'s publisher is even bashing Fox for changing programming based on the Saudi\\\\\\\\\\'s requests.

Fox News viewers, how does it feel to have your "conservative" network sell out to Middle Easterners? It's just too funny, to me.

It wasn't a story, it was an advertisement.

Fox has their reasons, maybe it has something to do with congress wanting to pass the clean energy bill, only giving the goverment more control.
I do agree we need to stop buying foriegn oil and use our own resources. Keep our money here, we have plenty of oil to drill for.

Spill baby Spill,
Spill here
Spill there.
Spill it everywhere.
If it is frozen tundra or a priceless beach we can spill there

Soon
I am sure we will spill it on the moon.
Can't clean it up with a spoon

Drill here drill there drill in every yard
As long as it is not MY back yard


Its not that we should not be buying foreign oil
We need to start moving away from oil PERIOD.

I said we need to move away.... Not stop cold turkey. There is a difference. But rather than deny and blame...we need to find other energy sources.

Solar, Wind, Geothermal...

We need to take seriously the fact that oil not a good energy supply. The others are not perfect but when was the last wind spill that was not tied to a Mexican Bean Burrito.

Hmm. Do you think that may have something to do with Obama's immigrration neglect? the more Mexicans that are here, the more burritos get made. The more burrittos that get made, the more wind. I think your onto something!

The burden of proof is on you mr liberal. If I had a nickel for all the one sided far left media channels and the crap that they do I would be rich.

Fuck you hippy. I have been working in the oil industry since I was a kid, oil is here to stay. The fact that ignorant cunts like you still think we make a mess every time we drill just proves how out of touch you are. good luck with being a douchebag.

Solar, Wind, Geothermal... all shitty sources that are not viable compared to our demand

We need to take seriously the fact that oil not a good energy supply. wat? are you smoking crack? The others are not perfect but when was the last wind spill that was not tied to a Mexican Bean Burrito.
DinoFuels are the most energy rich period - especially for transportation

Quote:
...The OECD countries, basically the prosperous, developed countries of the West, generally produce about $25,000 to $30,000 GDP per capita, and use 14 to 16 barrels of oil per person a year. In 2008, U.S. per capita GDP was $48,100, while oil use was 23 barrels per capita. By contrast, the non-OECD countries produce $7,000 to $10,000 GDP per capita, and consume 3 to 5 barrels per person. The countries of Africa and Asia produce $2,000 to $4,000 in per capita GDP, and use 1 to 2 barrels per person.


That is no accident. As Bryce writes, "[T]hanks to its high energy density, oil is a nearly perfect fuel for use in all types of vehicles, from boats and planes to cars and motorcycles. Whether measured by weight or by volume, refined oil products provide more energy than practically any other commonly available substance, and they provide it in a form that's easy to handle, relatively cheap, and relatively clean." Moreover, oil is the only fuel that can power the modern engines of economic prosperity, the diesel engine and the jet turbine.


Besides oil, prosperity is fueled in the world today by electricity. And right now, that means coal, though the future may belong to natural gas and nuclear power. While only Canada among major countries has higher per capita electricity consumption than America, the five countries with the lowest electricity consumption are Gaza, Chad, Burundi, Central African Republic, and Rwanda.

even more staggering:
Quote:
Indeed, Bryce shows that just one modern coal mine in Kentucky, the 35th largest in America, produces nearly as much energy as all wind and solar in the U.S. And the natural gas production from just one state, Oklahoma, produces well over nine times as much energy as all U.S. wind and solar.
