Clinton Crackel, Emergency Management Specialist, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Co-Founder Nuclear Fuels Reprocessing Coalition: The Fischer-Tropsch process was developed in Germany in 1925 as means to convert coal into synthetic fuel for use in motorized vehicles. In 2012, Princeton University published an article stating researchers found the United States could eliminate the need for crude oil by substituting it with synthetic fuels. At least we could eliminate our dependence on foreign oil. This could put our coal miners back to work doing what they do best, without relocation. Environmental controls could be put in place. The burdens of having our military in some endless wars around the world could be reduced.
