Question by Maxwell: Do people REALLY believe that electricity comes from foreign oil?
Essentially no US electricity comes from foreign oil. ALMOST NONE. as in LESS THAN ONE PERCENT (<1%) US power plants are: Hydroelectric (No foreign oil, obviously) Coal (No foreign oil, obviously) Natural Gas (Natural gas in the US is 100% domestic) Nuclear (No foreign oil, obviously) Solar (No foreign oil, obviously) Wind (No foreign oil, obviously) Geothermal (No foreign oil, obviously) Biofuel (No foreign oil, obviously) and a little tiny bit of petroleum, SOME of which is foreign based during SOME of the year (based on domestic production of heating oil) Do People really think solar etc will reduce our dependence on foreign oil when we don't use foreign oil to produce electricity?? @SCOTTS No Says Reality To my knowledge Fox hasn't commented on the subject. Please do point to a power plant that burns foreign oil. @NAUTILUS The question is about domestic electricity production and if "green" power plants will reduce dependency on foreign oil (Which they obviously will not) Talking about the other things we are hooked on that involve oil is off topic and moot. @ANDY YOU....have been paying attention to the country Best answer:
