Support an Open Fuel Standard

Monday

"THIS YEAR, the United States and other countries will send OPEC countries more money than the United States taxpayers send our own Department of Defense," says Anne Korin in the video below.

This can change. It costs very little for car manufacturers to tweak their engines so they can burn several different kinds of fuels — in other words, to create a single engine that can burn ethanol and methanol and gasoline, whichever is available or cheapest. Car manufacturers already make some of their cars with this tweak. If car manufacturers were required to do this by the government (just as they are required to build in seat belts), fuel companies would have enough confidence to build fueling stations for alternative fuels, and then what would happen? The different kinds of fuels could compete.


Right now oil is a fuel monopoly. It is the only fuel most cars use. This monopoly is controlled by OPEC. They don't produce all the oil on the market, but they produce such a large amount that they can change the global price of oil when they wish. This means the global price of oil is controlled by Jihadis, and they are using their oil monopoly to do two things at once: To fund a global jihad, and to weaken the free world.

The idea of "drill here, drill now" will help remove money from OPEC and put it into the U.S. market, which is a good thing, but it still leaves OPEC controlling oil prices, which means Jihadis are controlling the price of transportation, which means Jihadis are controlling the global economy. "Drill here, drill now" is a good thing to do, but it is not the whole solution. Whenever more oil is added to the global market, OPEC reduces its output accordingly. Their control of their output controls the price. It is oil jihad. We need to defeat it with freedom. In this case, a free market competition between transportation fuels.

In the U.S., we only use 2% of our oil creating electricity. Building more nuclear power plants or wind turbines won't help much with the transportation issue until more cars and trucks are electric. But making more fuel options possible (by mandating the open fuel standard) will strongly impact the transportation issue quickly, giving us freedom from the monopoly, and freedom from control by OPEC, while cutting off a significant flow of money to people committed to sabotaging Western democracies.

Watch Anne Korin
speak about the problem and the solution in the video below. Korin is the director of policy and strategic planning at Institute for the Analysis of Global Security and the editor of Energy Security:



The simplest, cheapest, quickest way to eliminate OPEC's control on the world economy is making it a law that cars must be made with an open fuel standard. Do you want to cut off money going to Jihadis bent on the West's destruction? Write to your representatives now.

The U.S. federal government has spent billions of dollars since 1992 to buy a fleet of 112,000 alternative-fuel vehicles, but since there are so few suppliers of fuels such as ethanol and natural gas, these "green" cars are powered by gasoline 92 percent of the time.

THE REAL FACTS ARE THAT THE OIL BARONS WANT US DEPENDENT ON OIL... IF NOT FOR GREED WE COULD ALL BE DRIVING CARS THAT GET BETTER THAN 50 MILES TO THE GALLON OR MORE. THE TECHNOLOGY EXIST BUT THE OILD COMPANIES OWN IT. THEY HAVE BOUGHT OR STOLEN OR KILLED TO KEPT IT OUT OF THE HANDS OF THE WORLD. WHY ? HAVE THEY DONE THIS YOU ASK. BECAUSE OR ECONOMY IS DRIVE IN BY OIL ITS USE ITS BY PRODUCTS, THE TAX REVENUE FROM IT AND GREED.
ITS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THUS. THE COMMON GOOD HAS NEVER ENTERED INTO IT ANYWHERE.....

MySmallPieceOfTheWorld,

I heard this thirty years ago (about oil companies buying up all the patents and locking them away). It isn't true. There are lots of good ideas that have been patented and not bought by the oil companies, and many of them are already in use.

The oil companies know oil will run out some day, and they are working on developing new fuels so they can stay in business. In the process, they have bought SOME patents.

If they came up with something that could compete with gasoline, they would put it on the market if they could make a profit. Right now, gasoline is the cheapest, but it won't always be so.

Ford UK (in all Europe, really), check it out, currently sells at least 10 models that do over 50 mpg. They are all diesels. Do you care? Regular gas ones offered there do over 35 mpg. They are on the shelve and theoretically you can order any of them on the web today. Why are those Fords not even offered in the USA? Good question!

Pvr40, it wouldn't make the strategic difference even if those cars were available here.

The goal with the Open Fuel Standard is to reduce the strategic importance of oil. Diesel fuel is still made out of oil. It would use LESS oil, but still leave us completely addicted to oil.

I think there are small passenger cars that do 50 miles per gallon of gasoline. Check the smallest models of Kia, Huyndai, VW up etc.

ACC, if they still run on oil, they perpetuate the monopoly. Competition is what we need. Not more of the same.

One of the most unusual articles on CitizenWarrior.com is Pleasantville and Islamic Supremacism.

It illustrates the Islamic Supremacist vision by showing the similarity between what happened in the movie, Pleasantville, and what devout fundamentalist Muslims are trying to create in Islamic states like Syria, Pakistan, or Saudi Arabia (and ultimately everywhere in the world).
