Energy Is Critical To Our Standard Of Living

It is easy to tune out all the political yada yada yada because often it is not pleasant.  But all Americans should stay very tuned into our nation's energy policy.  For the first time in decades, we had finally reached energy independence using an all of the above energy policy.  In fact, the United States was exporting energy.  This was possible because we have abundant oil, natural gas, coal, nuclear power and all the renewables that are coming on line, primarily wind and solar.  

What is clear is that renewables alone today cannot power a modern first world economy.  The technology is just not there yet.  The notion that we are going to move away from carbon energy in the next twenty years is not realistic unless we ramp up nuclear energy.  I for one would like to know where all the electricity will come from to power all those electric cars as manufacturers stop producing gas and diesel powered cars. 

Everybody wants clean energy.  That is why we must make all energy sources cleaner, safer and cheaper to maintain our standard of living.  Creating energy that is more expensive would be an incredible burden on the poor and those on fixed incomes. 

At Paragon Home Resources, we work with families all over the country to sell and buy homes.  We assist with life decisions.  That is all great provided when someone turns on a light switch there is electricity there to make it all work.
