I hear Europeans complain that American energy policy is terrible. That we need to invest in green technologies. Let's look at results our energy policies. Europe: Green technologies. Let's look at Europe's natural gas independence: Completely dependent. An energy independent Europe this century is a funny joke. America: Fracking technologies. We're discovering more and more untapped oil fields to frack, which also give off natural gas, every day. We already have discovered enough to last us the entire century. We're a net oil exporter. Natural gas is just a by-product of oil fracking; while it's a valuable commodity to Europe that it has to rely on foreign powers for, it's essentially free to us. The USA is completely energy independent right now. Is it fair to say that Europe has been investing in pie-in-the-sky policies while the dumb, ignorant Americans have had realistic, real-world policies?
