The Death of Global Warming

Too much to say, too little time to say it and way too many links delving deeper, deeper into the bowels of so-called “professionals” (you will note that I am not calling anyone involved in this chain of email communications recently exposed as – scientists).

Let’s start with Anthony’s website – WattsUpWithThat. The recently released treasure trove of emails (okay, hacked, if you really want to split hairs) on the subject of Global Warming appears to be very damning indeed. Just one reference I make here –

UPDATE26: 2:50 PM 11/25 Two separate examples show obstruction and collusion by members of “The Team” to prevent any dissenting science from being properly considered by the NRC in 2007.

There is much more. A tease –

UPDATE21: 9:50AM PST 11/24 “FOIA2011″ and Climategate – A Chinese-POTUS connection?

I strongly recommend you read through the site, if you are at all interested in this subject, and how much it has affected all of us detrimentally.

Based on what I have read on this, Al Gore should be very ashamed of himself and the funds he has acquired on this subject should be returned to their rightful owners.

And these “professionals” should ……. well, I’ll let you make any further comments should you choose to do so.

Oh, and then there is this site, Daily Mail Online in the UK, hopping on the same subject but being more emphatic that there was certainly collusion involved.

Screwed Yet Again

Because the Pres**ent B Obama loves to play politics (but with real cause and effect), we will not get any additional oil from Canada (due to putting off the Keystone Pipeline decision until ….. later, much later).

Apparently, BO thinks this is smart politics.

At the expense of 300 million citizens of the United States. (Because, Canada will now sell to others.)

Just like he has done with Obamacare.

He only cares about himself.

Come November of 2012, let’s care enough to open the door for him – and shove him out.

Power Loss

The EPA is about to get medieval on us. Or, send us back in time to that age of darkness.
IER Identifies Coal Fired Power Plants Likely to Close as Result of EPA Regulations

The United States has the world’s largest coal resources. In fact we have 50 percent more coal than Russia, the country with the next largest reserves. But coal use in the United States is under assault.

Soon, the only use left for coal will be placing it in EPA’s Christmas stocking.
Thank the Grinch, folks, er, Obama.

More Taken From Our Wallets

Utility grid updates and emission controls (infrastructure upgrades) are soon going to cause our monthly electric bills to climb as the power companies will undoubtedly pass the costs onto us. Thanks to government inadequacy in understanding the magnitude of the effort:

During the budget battle, Congress cut $500 million from the program to bring this year’s total to $4.7 billion, down from a high of $5.1 billion in 2010. For next year, the Obama administration requested only $2.6 billion, leaving states with roughly half the assistance they’ve had in the past. The White House rationale relies on the assumption that energy prices will decline, but regulatory filings have indicated the opposite trend is in store.

Looks like this is in addition to expected utility rate increases by 2014.

Solar Scandal Story Spiked By ABC and NBC

They made no mention of the Solyndra execs being questioned during their Friday evening newcasts.
I guess the media folk figured that “invoking the 5th Amendment” at each question posed to those Solyndra execs wasn’t newsworthy. So where did that $545M of our tax money wind up?????? I would think that in itself would be a plenty newswortthy question to warrant some discussion.

Here is some more on this, at Hotairpundit.

Solar Poker

And naturally, and succinctly, Hot Air has an excellent summary as well as additional meat (er, links) to tell us about Solyndra’s grant, um, winnings.

You know, I’ve mentioned it before – to others and elsewhere – that this administration headed by Obama, has what I call the Un-Midas Touch. Damned if I’d gamble with these folks.

How many times has the White House handed over lots of our tax money to companies that later failed? Anybody keeping track?

Well, there’s the Caterpillar company, wasn’t that first? But now, with the current one – meaning Solyndra – here we have the FBI investigating the company & the home of its CEO. We hear rumblings how the CEO is such a good contributor to the Obama campaign.

But, oh wait, then why would the FBI raid Gibson and take product – when THAT CEO wasn’t a contributor (yet Gibson’s competition is)????

Perspective, I guess. Not sure I care for 1600’s view on legalities, though. Especially when the prior administration shelved the notion of giving to Solyndra. Yet Obama and company decided not to follow that road correctly.

Amazing.

Remember November 2012.

Give Back The Money

GE was awarded 44 contracts totaling over $46,000,000 and 44 grants totaling more than $79,000,000 from the Obama-Pelosi $757 billion dollar stimulus package.

Today GE announced that it was going to gut its offshore wind-power plans.

h/t GatewayPundit

Is this why GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt was hired by the POTUS, to create jobs and take them away???

I don’t think so, but it sure looks that way now doesn’t it?

In August there were 0 jobs made, or gained, or uh, nothing changed since July on the jobs front. What’s going to happen now, Wall Street? Particularly since this news comes on a weekend?
