Converting to natural gas cleaner

The thirst and demand for Canada’s energy will be never ending

The news of the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline is not anything new. As a matter of fact, huge sections of the line have already been widened. The thirst and demand for Canada’s energy will be never ending.

Unfortunately, our oil reserves are going to. Day after day, the media is swamped with propaganda that we have this never ending reserve of oil. The truth is we don’t.

Canada’s known accessible crude, if pumped at current rates will not last to 2050. Whereas, our new found reserves of natural gas are about 480 years.

Understanding, that the last bit of oil is worth a lot of money, there has to be a better motivation than that, to not start to convert to natural gas and save the crude oil for manufacturing. Not only do we use oil to make gasoline, we also use it to manufacture plastics, food stuffs, etc.

So, to wait for the crude to run out before we convert to natural gas will be a disaster of proportions the economy has never seen. It is all very avoidable.

We must begin to convert to natural gas now, and quit worrying about the big oil companies propaganda. Nobody wants to put Kinder Morgan out of business. Nobody wants  you to worry about your pension plans. Nobody wants to have you worry about your energy needs.

What we do have to worry about is the future. We can remedy the impending disaster, but have to convert now. So, instead of building oil pipelines, start building gas lines. There are just as many jobs in gas as there is in oil if we expand. I’m sure somebody at Kinder Morgan knows a gas fitter.

We have enough gas to build our future. Though, not perfect, gas is cleaner and an easy fuel to convert too. Let’s develop our own energy sources, we’ll surely make more money than what Alberta offers us.

Art Green,

Hope
