Where are we going to get the electricity to power our soon to be mandated $40,000 Chevy Volts, if we shut down coal mining? (Like health care mandating that we buy a Chevy Volt will be a tax.)
Liberals find it hard to think 2 or 3 steps ahead.
Hi Sandra, I was on a car trip with one of my liberal friends 9 yr old boy. I stopped to get gas and the liberals liberal kid, parroting his parents, said how great it is going to be when we all have electric cars. I said, do you know where electricity comes from? Reply from liberals liberal kid, it comes from the wall. Perfect, ok he's 9, but off to being a good ignorant liberal.
Sadly I know more than a few adults that think like that, electricity comes from the socket, food comes from the grocery store, et cetera.
I know some "adult" children that still believe that as long as you still have checks in the register, you still have money.
And when you write a check, the bank magically hands you back money!
What a wonderful world we live in.
I know that if you run an electric car (like the Nissan Leaf) to nearly "empty" it takes on average about 11-13 hours to recharge. The cost would depend on the rates in the area where it is being charged. The most serious downside to electric cars are the batteries, their maximum lifespan is about 7 years, average is probably closer to 5. They will then need to be replaced at a cost of somewhere in the neighborhood of $7500. That is not even considering what goes into the manufacturing of those batteries, they are no where near as "green" as they would like everyone else to believe.
For many many years the three letters epa has stood for
However, in the current environment, seeing as the coal industry is mostly unionized that the obamessiah regime is trying to kill these union (pardon my language for the usage of that dirty U word) jobs.
You would think that the Unions would be fighting tooth and nail against the EPA since they directly affect their members jobs.
But then again, what do Unions actually care about their members well being as long as it doesn't serve a political agenda and they get their dues to spend as they see fit.
On a side note, it always amazes me how Union bosses have so much money, Trumpka, and their members struggle yet continue to pay up.
It is very simple. We need to stop giving government bureaus the ability to make policy that effect the public without going thru congress. These regulations could never pass the legislative process.
Of course, that's been the plan from the beginning. Destroy our energy sector so energy costs go through the roof and Obama's crony friends at Solynra (etc.) get some business. He is on video (before elected) stating that's what he wanted to do.
The EPA is one of the first agencies that need to be disbanded once we get the socialists out of office! GSA and the Dept. of Education need to follow suit. All three do nothing positive, are a drag on our nation, and are corrupt to the core! If we don't successfully reduce the size of government and get rid of nonsense regulations meant to cripple our nation, we will be in irrevocably dire straits. It has been proven time and again that the EPA has used manipulated data, not real scientific facts, to push regulations that don't help our environment, but anchor us to foreign energy sources, rather than our own! November is only the beginning...we have serious clean up to do!
"EPA administrator admits EPA regulations are impacting coal’s competitiveness"
Erm... Isn't that the whole point?
Yep. Force them out of business and push our energy rates through the roof....all while the jackass in the WH claims he's for the "all of the above" energy plan. He's a liar. He's for wind and solar and he's trying to kill oil and coal.
It is widely known by all that wind and solar are wholey inadequate, and not viable as a replacement for current sources of energy. Wind and solar are simply a diversion to keep people from thinking that they are shutting down our only currently viable options. It is a part of the big picture. They can enrich their corporate buddies in the process by handing them government contracts that will produce nothing, and make them a huge amount of money. If there is any production to come out of it, China will provide, as they are shipping out to the promised land.
He isn't trying to kill oil and coal, he is killing them. Romney will follow suit. Obama is the most prolific liar that I have had the displeasure of witnessing as our president. Though some others tried hard, they don't match up with Obama.
I have watched several presidents create and expand the regulatory agencies that were created to just that, shut us down. From Bush 1 to present, this agenda has been fluent in its execution. It goes back beyond that, but this is what I have witnessed.
The same goes for our foreign policies. We have simply executed plans that they made in the seventies and eighties in the last twenty years, and mostly in the last ten. Obama picked it up and carried it just as Romney will do.
Romney would have to be the ultimate rebel to make any real changes.
I think that a realistic outlook on energy would be that if the population continues to grow, then individual usage will have to decrease, or the way that we use it will have to be more efficient.
I personally think that the global elite view all of these resources as being their own, and this is why they are shutting down the higher levels of production. While they do this, they are also stepping up their eugenics programs. When they bring all of the free states to their knees, they will just start cutting us off from the energy.
This is what happens when you give a handful of people the power to control the food and water supply to the whole world. Now that they have socialized everything, including medical care, it will be easy to force deadly vaccination on people and spread disease to decrease the populations and put them in submission. They are putting poisons in the water as well, and are now publicly declaring that they want to add lithium to the water supply of the industrialized nations. By the way, there is a lot of lithium in Afghanistan.
They cannot do any of this without the central banks. This is why I argue for competing currencies, because the wealth of a local community could be based on anything that they chose, rather than a global centralized fiat currency that our assets and real property are legally tied to.
The bottom line is that these "alternative" energy sources are just being pushed to keep our eyes off of the big picture, because we know, that they know, that they will never amount to anything.
I'm not sure where you get that Romney will follow Obama's lead and be anti-oil and coal. I don't see that.
I don't get the whole solar argument either. I mean when they come out with something the size of a credit card that I can attach to my roof and it can power my whole house continually then hey....I'll be all for solar. Until that technology comes to be though I don't want it. It isn't efficient yet. A whole roof covered with solar panels and when one gets a crack in it from hail or a big storm comes through and damages a bunch of them they break and cost a fortune to replace. It's not like they are like $10 buck to purchase and install. Huge solar farms exist out in the west and they provide a small fraction of the power to cities because thats all they can generate. I mean there is a reason we aren't at solar powered crap yet...because the technology isn't there yet. And it may never be.
Gina needs to park her tree-huggn a$$ back in Harvard yard. What an annoying twit. I'm sick of these screball AGW morons running the show at EPA. The intellectual acumen of these adle-brained administrators is beyond stupid and has finally entered into the realm of dangerous. These crazy people need to be swept up, and bundled off to a place where they can catch butterflies and talk to trees. Not a state mental institution, but a habitable island all their own, way the eff out in the ocean somewhere. Al Gore can be their mayor. Or we could fix it so that they are in a permanent "Lord Of The Flies" scenario.
Oh wait, they're already worshipping him.
It was very hard to pick up from your subtlety, but I'm going to throw in a wild guess that you don't like the EPA administrators. LOL !!!
Hey now. I have hugged trees before. I fell on one once right after I cut it down, and had to hug it to hang on.
Feel lucky you weren't on the other side of it. If it fell in the opposite direction you would look like the Gingerbread man.
It's the switchbacks that you gotta look out for. If the tree is rotten or hollow inside, it will not break evenly, and can twist and switch back on you. Not a pretty sight. They can do some pretty nasty things when they hang up as well. If the top stops falling, the tree will bow in the middle and bounce back at you. Several tons of weight can do a lot of damage.
Maybe that is why logging is considered one of the most dangerous jobs.
LOL. Yeah I was hugging a few tree branches myself today while cleaning up the mess from that derecho that smashed through last night.
Here ya go. Oh you gotta see this to believe it. I just bet the white-haired vixen above would feel right at home here in this vid:
Well said. One of my favorite points when I talk to AGW freaks. I bring it up often here too. Paul was brilliant. "Professing themselves wise they became fools" (v22)
"I think we are deeply hurting in America"
Yeah, you're right you stupid wench. My head is splitting since listening to you tree hugging idiots!!
What do those morons do after a forest fire?
Those people on the video are completely looney tunes, aren't they?
Kind of reminds me of those spoken of in Romans 1. God gave us nature and things that He made to reveal Himself to us in such obvious ways so that no one would have an excuse not to believe in Him (vs 20). Then the "fools" decided to worship the created things instead of the Creator (vs 25). It doesn't turn out well for them and many others mentioned in that text. Its a pretty clear message.
Signs of the times...
Yeah. I'm with you there. I moved out in the country to be in the woods and to be closer to the natural world. But I don't put trees, animals and bugs before human life. Those weirdos do. Their god is gaia. Mine is Jesus Christ.
Woooo! That is some serious psycho-pathological behavior.
I was hiking through an old growth preserve a couple of weeks ago. It had a canopy that just let trickles of sunlight through. The forest bed was carpeted with ferns that danced in the sparkling sunlight.
I can appreciate God's creation, but this is insane.
I'm sure this will go over big in Pennsylvania, too, which has a big interest in the coal industry AND is now considered a swing state. I think this could change a few minds in a very critical state we have to win in November.
I worry about those ATF whistle blower heroes now under the mercy of bureaucratic scum. Affirmative Action college grads, obama cousins and criminals like this heartless liberal b****.
I pray for them like as if we are all in the same squad. It's hard to be old and have to wait while these communists and perverts posture, slink and hide, re-position and lie and obfuscate when all you want to do is dig your fingers into their hides and rip.
The EPA needs to be reigned in considerably same as many Federal Government depts. Sad what this corrupt administration and mostly useless congress except for a few have done to this country .
Why is it necessary to get the EPA to admit that their regulations are having an impact on the competitiveness of coal, when it's SELF-EVIDENT (to anyone with a brain) that they have said impact?
Oh, nice. Congress gets an assistant administrator. Where's the head of this perfidious job-destroying, America-destroying POS agency?
