Default We Could Build a Coal-to-Gasoline Conversion Plant

The People of the United States could build a people-owned coal-to-oil
conversion plant and extract as much gasoline, from domestic coal, as we
need, independently of foreign nations. We could just about balance our
budget just on that one item alone. Just call it Manhattan Project II and
get started.

Gasoline would be cheap and stay that way, once foreigners, greedy oil
companies, and profits are taken out of the picture. And even if it wasn't
cheap, its still cheap enough compared to losing our manhood to the Arab
sheiks, Venezuelan strongman, Nigerian Mau-mau, and so on down the line.

That is, if we wanted to. Call the troops home today and we will have
collectively, $1,500,000,000.00 a month to invest in Manhattan Project II
until its done. Put it to the vote of the people: Do they want
gasoline-a-plenty at low cost for ourselves and generations to come, or do
they want to see our beloved country go bankcrupt...to Hell in a handbasket
with empty tanked SUV cars and Pickups littering the landscape and
cemetaries full of their dead soldier-children?

I'm waiting, Mr. President. Please answer before the impeachment
proceedings begin to put you out of the warmongering business (or the
Generals do a coup d'etat).

You forget one little obstacle. The "Not in my backyard" crowd.

Better yet, you we could build fuel-efficient motor vehicles, develop
alternative sources of energy that don't cause global warming, improve the
efficiency of our houses, and use buses, subways, bikes and our feet to get
around more.

The first sentence turned me off right away. "people owned"? I hate
those words because it reminds me of the old U.S.S,R.

You must be a socialist.

The problem is that no town or city wants any type of power plant to be
built in their back yard. I live in a county that has a Nuclear Power
Plant. The liberals in this state have been trying to close down that
Nuclear Power Plant for the past 20 years. There has not been a new
Nuclear Power Plant built in the past 20 years. The reason is because
no person in America wants a Nuclear Power plant or a Coal to Oil
Conversion Plant to be built in their back yard. There is even a name
for it---NIMBY--.

Exactly what South Africa did when the UN sanctions were on them in
the sixties/seventies. Made all their own gasoline from coal, and
their gas cost less in 1973 than real gas dis in Zambia, who could buy
wherever they wanted.

Read the Washington Post op-ed... not just nimby, now it's BANANAs (build
absolutely nothing anywhere near anything.

No it's time for people to take action alright. First step: The Fed's
should reclaim all territory 12 miles off the beach in the Gulf and
drill.

No need to wait, the President has already provided 100 million in federal
money to do almost exactly that, as part of his plan to reduce our
dependency on imported crude. It is not gasoline from coal but clean
burning, low sulfur, diesel fuel.

A plant is being built as we speak in Schuylkill County Pennsylvania that
will convert coal calm (waste coal) into fuel to be used by the state of
Pennsylvania. Eastern Pennsylvania has the world largest reserves of
clean burning low sulfur anthracite coal. Using new coal would be more
costly than using culm. Even producing diesel fuel from waste coal cost
much more the conventional fuel oil and much more than it would coat to
produce gasoline. The only thing that is making that plant cost effective
is the Company has been given a ten year tax exemption, under Pennsylvania's
Keystone development plan that is designed to return "brown fields,"
polluted areas, into tax producing lands. In addition the diesel fuel will
not be taxed by the state of federal government. The current federal tax is
..185c per gallon and the Pa state tax is .26C The sad part is even at $70
a barrel gasoline is still so cheap as a motor fuel that crude will need to
go over $100 a barrel before ANY of the alternate fuel will cost less and
can be sold at a profit.
