I bet you could see that!
Although this begs the question, is it more efficient to burn natural gas, to spin a turbine, to make electricity, to put into a battery to spin a driveshaft; OR would it be better to just burn the natural gas in an ICE on the vehicle itself?
It would seem like you would save a lot of transmission inefficiency by using CNG in an ICE.. But then again, modern combined cycle natural gas generation facilities are highly efficient.
"oh but more people would have died"
let's be clear hear, when you say "more", that means LOTs more..
going against the Russian war machine on the european continent in 1945 would have been absolutely no joke; they were churning out more war material, including the then world beating IS3 tank at the end of the war, than we were..
probably the only thing where yahoo is still competitive, if not the market leader...
just another liberal pipe dream that will never actually work
Natural gas in the USA will continue to be produced in North America and consumed in North America
Not necessarily, projects for megascale exporting of North American LNG going on as we speak.
1) Russia is actively involved in the current instability in the Ukraine... To deny this is about as rational as denying that the sun rises in the east
2) Russia has, numerous times actually, used natural gas disruptions, or threats of gas disruptions as a political tool
3) America, as you said it, has a massive gas glut. Russia wasn't behaving badly (more or ess) when the big LNG export megaproducts got started off the coast of Louisiana.
Even if Russia wasn't acting pants-on-head crazy and jeopardizing their own self-interests we still would have been able to undercut their price gouging in Europe.. And there is also the Asian market, which stands to be a big customer of North American natural gas, regardless of Russia's antics.
That's as real as realpolitik and real-econmick gets. These are all facts, verifiable from multiple sources.. To say unsourced proclamations that the united states is somehow "staging" political changes in the Ukraine so that we can sell gas is "about as plausible" is pure hysterics...
Europe's push for renewable energy, coupled with the fact that large-scale LNG exports are due to come online from North America in the next few years means that using energy disruption, or even the threat of it, as a foreign policy weapon is going to be FAR less effective.
I've been to the UK numerous times, no shortage of lard buckets
you don't want to be in the situation where you have to hire a bunch of fresh-faced engineers who have never built a sub before, and have no one to ask because everybody who has is either dead or retired
reminds of a story I heard about stained glass.. evidently there are some forms of stained glass made in medieval/renaissance times that we have no idea how to make today...
Even the smartest guy in the room is going to be wrong from time to time, the difficulty is getting them to accept it.
