1977 : Carter Warned That We Were Running Out Of Natural Gas

This was a mere two years before he turned Iran over to Islamic extremists and was attacked by a killer bunny.

The oil and natural gas we rely on for 75 percent of our energy are running out.

Because we are now running out of gas and oil, we must prepare quickly for a third change, to strict conservation and to the use of coal and permanent renewable energy sources, like solar power.

– Jimmy Carter April 18, 1977

  2. Andy DC says:

    After all these years of costly Government sponsorship, solar and wind have barely made a dent with respect to energy production.

    Remember, price controls on oil and gas were removed shortly after this speech. Gas first, oil later. We have greatly increased gas production. We have greatly limited oil production by government fiat.
