In light of Barack Obama’s tidal shift from accentuating “clean energy” programs to an “all of the above” energy policy we can only respond by changing his name from Barack to Beaurat. This, because he’s obviously a poorly crafted and seriously flawed comedic character being offered for no better reason than to insult the intelligence of the American people.
Beaurat has been on a mission to gut the Energy Industry since the day he got his first style support check from the Sierra Club. His slavish acquiescence to green doctrines he really couldn’t care less about other than for the fact they support him, is tedious at best and completely annoying in the acceptance of his daily psycho-babble. He wants us to believe he wants every form of energy production anchored in an only alluded to, non-existent energy policy. All of the above: yeah-RIGHT!
In 2008, while campaigning, Beaurat Obama said: “If someone wants to build a new coal-fired power plant they can, but it will bankrupt them because they will be charged a huge sum for all the greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.” He’s allowed the implementation of an EPA edict (showing no accountability to Congressional oversight) seeing to that goal becoming a reality. Beaurat Obama has circumvented Congress by directing regulatory agencies to engage and implement his “green” agenda.
Any new coal-fired plants won’t be able to emit more than 1,000 pounds of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) to produce a megawatt of electricity. 1768 pounds is the number necessary to produce the megawatt. In order to continue using coal, a plant must spend many millions, and actually billions nationwide, to install carbon capture technology. Green energy proponents see this as an onerous weight for the industry to carry because they know the coal plants must make the consumer pay hundreds more per year, per consumer. The culprit avoids exposure by staying one step removed from the action.
Much of this controversy revolves around the possibility of Mercury emissions being introduced into the environment. There’s no noted effect to human health from Mercury suspended in the air. It’s only when Mercury enters the watershed it becomes a problem for unborn children of pregnant mothers eating large amounts of fish. The water borne Mercury problem was noted in the Faroe Islands. The Faroe Islands are an island group situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Scotland and Iceland and these reports were noted because of their diet consisting of whale blubber. Other studies of populations eating similar amounts of fish as Americans are noted to be in the Republic of the Seychelles, northeast of Madagascar. They showed no appreciable detriment to pregnant mothers or children in utero. To date the EPA hasn’t made any attempts to find any American child with deficient school performance as a result of eating mercury tainted fish. But they still advertise they’re saving the unborn.
In making electricity production by using coal restrictive, Beaurat Obama, assures the development of a perfect storm affecting employment in America. If you can’t use coal; you don’t need coal miners. If you don’t use coal; you don’t need coal plant workers. If you don’t use coal; you increase the profits of those using alternative energy programs. If you do that; you benefit Obama’s cronies and assure American Industry’s lingering weakness, because China hasn’t missed a step in their developing coal fired industry.
China’s expanding their energy production and foreign supplied energy reserves exponentially. Their coal fired electricity generation in 2010 was 1.6 Billion tons. In 2030 it’s projected to reach 3.1 tons. They’ve invested $15 Billion into conversion technologies to change coal to oil. That investment will reach $65-80 Billion dollars while requiring over 100 million tons of coal to do the job.
Beaurat Obama’s goal of fundamentally changing the landscape of America’s holdings in the 21st Century is pretty evident: issue edicts with oversight to NO elected element answering to the American people. Then allow unelected agency chiefs to issue their own mandates with NO accountability outside of the agency.
Distance Americans from controlling America. That’s his goal: and you’re letting it happen.
Thanks for listening.
