How many schooners do we need captain Wagner?

Rick Wagner not angry? Methinks the lady doth protest too much.

Poor Rick, he jumped on a point that Romney got his buns toasted. A navy with less ships is not less strong. One missile submarine today carries enough firepower to destroy a nation. One carrier today could take out the entire Japanese Pearl Harbor attack force or the Midway Invasion fleet. The grand number of Battleships of World War I was shown to be useless in the face of air attack by Billy Mitchell and it took Pearl Harbor for this to be realized.
He needs to realize that fossil fuels have a finite life and, if the machinery of war will need fuels, biofuels may have to fill that need. While the industry of biofuels is limited, costs are high; but, it doesn’t mean it will stay that way.
On the other hand, there is only one thing standing in the way of electrical power taking over the roles of both fossil fuel and biofuels and that is power storage. Present battery technology is not up to par to make this transition. However, in the realms of nanotechnology, the carbon materials are showing promising use as capacitor storage that would outlive and hold enormous power storage at rapid recharge. This also brings the advent of hydrogen as the liquid fuel of choice with the coupling of high strength, light weight fuel tanks of carbon composite.
The trouble with being dogmatic conservative is it puts blinders on vision of the future by clinging to the past. Couple this with the fear and loathing that has been promulgated by this group resistance to being taken into the future, and you have new members for the flat earth society.
