Barack Obama Not Finished Impoverishing Americans for Planet

obamaPen The President is going to impose still more burdens on energy, impoverishing Americans even faster. Newser.com reports, “Obama to Unveil New Climate Change Plan: Officials.” President Obama will impose even steeper cuts on greenhouse gas emissions from US power plants than previously expected, senior administration officials said today, in what the president called the most significant step the US has ever taken to fight global warming. A year after proposing unprecedented carbon dioxide Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Stock Market v. the Economy

stock market What is good for the stock market is not necessarily good for the American people. Sometimes the stock market reveals economic reality. A sudden plunge usually means that people are realizing that economic productivity was being grossly exaggerated. So now they are making a “correction.” [See also, “Did the Stock Market Receive a Secret Bailout?”] But other times the stock market is a distraction from economic reality. Here is an example: “Stocks Are Mixed as Crude Oil Closes Worst Read more [...] Continue reading →

National Black Chamber of Commerce: EPA Rules Will Impoverish Minorities

coal The National Black Chamber of Commerce wants to know how minorities will be able to afford energy after EPA regs spike prices. I realize that Liberals will probably scoff at the National Black Chamber of Commerce as a “conservative” organization. But they never care about bias when they get support from Liberal black organizations. Besides, their statement is just common sense. Poor people will be devastated when energy prices are forced upward. But another factor will be jobs. If power Read more [...] Continue reading →

Australia Prefers Lower Energy Prices to Global Warming Alarmism

wind turbine eagle The Australian government is cutting back on “clean energy” mandates to lower energy prices for voters. While a court sided with nine hundred Dutch believers in global warming and imposed economic hardship on the entire Netherlands that won’t, if global warming were a real threat, stop the environmental damage, Australia is going in a different direction in order to escape economic hardship for the majority of residents. They are reducing their mandates for using “clean energy.” Sky Read more [...] Continue reading →

900 Dutch Citizens Get to Wreck the Netherlands' Energy Economy

smoke stack A court has ruled on behalf of complaining Dutch citizens that all carbon emissions in the Netherlands must decrease 25% by 2020. According to Newser.com, “The ruling by The Hague District Court could lay the foundations for similar cases around the world.” The case was a lawsuit brought in the name of nine hundred Dutch citizens. That verdict is quite scary if the decision is allowed to stand and gets enforced. We are going to see the Netherlands become a much poorer country as suddenly all Read more [...] Continue reading →

EPA and Sierra Club Communicated through Private Email on How to Destroy Coal

coal is dead Hillary Clinton is not the only one in government who has been using an unofficial private email account for government work. Guess who “helped” the Environmental Protection Agency develop rules to destroy regulate coal? According to the Daily Beacon: “Top EPA Official Used Personal Email Address to Solicit Green Group’s Input.” A high-level official at the Environmental Protection Agency used a personal email address to collaborate with a left-wing environmental group on major greenhouse Read more [...] Continue reading →

Senator Thinks We Need Climate Change Heresy Trials

global warming v models Obviously, without climate change heresy trials, there will be no way to uphold the “settled science” of global warming. The center of cultural influence in Western society has shifted from the Church to the laboratory. Whereas cads and charlatans historically gravitated toward black robes, now they often don white lab coats—science is the new defender of allowable orthodoxy. In light of that transformation, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse now advocates, in the Washington Post, opening "heresy Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Gore Effect Strikes: Thousands Bundle Up to Protest Global Warming

frozen al gore The Gore Effect is a name for the many times when Global Warming protests take place in unseasonably cold weather. Here’s a picture of the protestors forming a giant thermometer. Notice all that climate change lying on the ground? The Daily Caller reports, “Thousands March Through Snow Protesting Global Warming.” The “Gore effect” has struck again, this time forcing thousands of Canadian eco-activists to march through the snow over the weekend, rallying against global warming Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Warren Buffett Carbon Footprint Just Expanded!

warren buffett His train blew up and dramatically increased the Warren Buffet carbon footprint. Poetic Justice? Proverbial karma? Days after Barack Obama vetoed the Keystone Pipeline to protect his big-time financial buddy Warren Buffett's near monopoly on oil transportation via rails—allegedly because pipelines are so dangerous to the environment—one of Warren's Bakken oil trains has derailed and detonated near the meeting of the Galena and Mississippi Rivers. Zero Hedge has the story: “Dramatic Read more [...] Continue reading →

Barack Obama Triumphs over the Keystone Pipeline

keystone The Senate is unable to override Obama’s Keystone Pipeline veto. I don’t even care that much about the Keystone Pipeline. Now that fracking has pushed down the price of oil, it doesn’t seem as important as it once did. It would be nice to give U.S. citizens some more jobs and add to the goods that the U.S. can export, but it isn’t as important as it once was. I don’t even understand why the President or the Federal government is involved in the decision. As far as I’m concerned Read more [...] Continue reading →

Crispy or Original Recipe? Solar Power Test Fries Birds in Flight

burnedOwl Every time I think about "green energy," a little voice in my head that sounds like Katharine McPhee starts singing "Over the Rainbow." (Sorry, Judy Garland fans, but this is the 21st century, and Kat's got it all over the erstwhile Dorothy Gale.) It's not that I'm seeing Munchkins, but the wistful, dreamy, pie-in-the-sky yearning expressed in the song seems to me to capture the whole alternative energy movement. Whether it's corn-powered cars, high-tech windmills or solar panels, the stuff Read more [...] Continue reading →

The Pits Barack Obama Has Dug for Himself

obamacare crash burn blimp Barack Obama has dug some holes in which he is now stuck. As I peruse the news today, I recall to mind one immutable rule of this world. The Psalmist writes in Psalm 7:14-16: 14 Behold, the wicked man conceives evil     and is pregnant with mischief     and gives birth to lies. 15 He makes a pit, digging it out,     and falls into the hole that he has made. 16 His mischief returns upon his own head,     and on his own skull his violence descends. Psalm 57:5-7 is similar: 5 Be Read more [...] Continue reading →
