2. The addiction analogy I use, as opposed to smoking, is alcoholism. People sometimes refer to...

...dangerous natural gas as a "clean fuel" and of course, it is no such thing.

I often compare the "gas is better than coal" argument as being analogous to an alcoholic announcing he's cured because he no longer drinks scotch, but now drinks only wine and beer.

One's liver tissue doesn't care whence the alcohol comes, and the atmosphere doesn't care whence the carbon dioxide comes.

The so called "renewable energy" industry is totally and completely dependent on dangerous natural gas, dangerous natural gas being by far, the fastest growing source of energy in this country, and in fact, the world.

In any case, the so called "renewable energy" industry isn't actually "renewable" since it depends on access to increasingly rare (and toxic) elements.
