Greenies love to label any money associated with any fossil fuel as dirty. They love to damn any infraction by fossil fuels to the land or wildlife or plant, no matter how small. The life of a little beetle that was previously unknown is as important as the lives of a million humans who depend on coal for heat or water for agriculture. How does Big Green and the Obama admin stand up under a bit more scrutiny than usual? It’s crazy out there.
A wind farm requires 700 times more land to produce the same amount of energy as a fracking site, according to analysis by the energy department’s recently-departed chief scientific advisor. …
What? You didn’t hear about this on NBC? I’m shocked. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/08/23/liberals-darling-2-2-billion-solar-plant-suddenly-needs-more-of-the-one-thing-you-would-never-expect/
Bright Source Energy, the company operating the plant, is petitioning the California government, requesting permission to burn more natural gas and to emit 94,749 more tons of carbon dioxide per year. That’s the equivalent of emissions from about 16,500 automobiles.
If the permit is approved, then this “solar” plant will produce about 35 percent of its electricity from fossil fuels
Race-baiting for climate change? Let’s face it, in the Obama administration, everything is about race. http://dailycaller.com/2014/08/27/epa-chief-co2-regulations-are-about-justice-for-communities-of-color/
Big Green might get blowback from this one. I can just see women yelling, ‘You’ll take my hair dryer from my cold, dead hands.’ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/11061538/EU-to-ban-high-energy-hair-dryers-smartphones-and-kettles.html If this sounds far-out, just realize that the entire Obama administration is based upon the European Socialism-Lite government.
Britain rushed into a Big Green movement a few years ago, claiming they would be the first to meet or exceed the stringent European Union AGW standards/regulations. They went gaga over windmill farms, mostly leased to rich aristocratic landowners, who get paid big $$ whether the windmills are producing or not. There’s a million problems. Who does/pays the maintenance? What happens during storms when windmills off-shore fall into the sea and leach dangerous heavy metals from the engine into the wildlife-filled waters? What about the noise, to both humans and animals? Since Britain has closed down coal-fired power plants and other fossil fuels, what happens if the windmills don’t produce enough electricity, especially during a very cold winter? What happens when the high costs are passed on to consumers, who sometimes can’t afford them? http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-London/2014/09/03/Britain-Faces-Winter-of-Blackouts-As-Firms-Are-Asked-to-Ration-Electricity
More Europe Madness! Let’s face it, greenies just hate civilization. At least for you and me. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/eu/7996383/Europe-to-cut-power-of-vacuum-cleaners-to-save-energy.html
Wouldn’t it be great if the US learned from the mistakes of Spain, Germany, Britain, etc and didn’t keep repeating them? Of course then a lot of cronies wouldn’t get payback for their campaign support. http://pjmedia.com/blog/obama-style-climate-and-energy-programs-have-failed-everywhere-theyve-been-tried/
