Protect Americans From Our President

According to His Royal Highness, the end of the world is very near UNLESS electric rates skyrocket and the sheep are taxed into submission.

ONLY Barack can save us.

It's a sad state of affairs when articles like this have to be written. But it's true. Only the ones wanting free hand-outs are for him.

This article is woefully short on details. Other accounts seem to indicate that the new initiative is focused on limiting "carbon", i.e., CO2, emissions. If anyone is genuinely interested in the matter, the Pennsylvania State University, Penn State, was just, on May 14 of this year, awarded "United States Patent 8,440,438 - Electromethanogenic Reactor and Processes for Methane Production". It's a process and technology wherein about as much juice as you would get from a flashlight battery will convert Carbon Dioxide, and water, into Methane. Thus, we can kill two pollution birds with one stone. We can recycle the CO2 from our Coal power plants, and make Methane, i.e., substitute natural gas, thus rendering it unnecessary to pollute all our water supplies with shale gas fracking chemicals and the radium the US Geologic Survey says comes up from the shale with the frack flowback.

geo, Good luck on that!

Methane is a chemical compound with the chemical formula CH 4. It is the simplest alkane and the main component of natural gas. The relative abundance of methane makes it an attractive fuel. However, because it is a gas at normal conditions, methane is difficult to transport from its source.

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, more potent than carbon dioxide unit for unit.

I tried to watch the speech today on CSPAN3. However because of fear to exceed my threshold of nausea, the fear of blood squirting from all of my bodily openings, the feeling that all of my organs were turning inside out, and the strong feeling of desperation and dispair, I was forced to turn off the speech after only a few minutes.

I found comfort in Psalm 62.

Folks, the science behind the EPA finding that CO2 is a pollutant is flawed. I know it. CO2 at 400 parts per million is a life-giving molecule that MIGHT be one of 33 variables that can affect climate. There is something strange about large masses of people willing to bet the future of the planet on a 1 in 33 chance, of a very small variable that is essential for life, but somehow is now a pollutant.

Senator Mojo this afternoo:

“It’s clear now that the President has declared a war on coal. It’s simply unacceptable that one of the key elements of his climate change proposal places regulations on coal that are impossible to meet with existing technology.”

Another increment in the war on coal based on Junk Science.

The only reason for this action is take some heat away from NSA gate, IRS-gate, Benghazi-gate, and the other dozen Obama F***ups!

If you make really cheap energy really expensive, then really expensive energy( like GREEN shat) looks CHEAP by comparison.

" thus rendering it unnecessary to pollute all our water supplies with shale gas fracking chemicals and the radium the US Geologic Survey says comes up from the shale with the frack flowback"

Some interesting comments from a NY Times Op Ed titled The Facts on Fracking, "The Pennsylvania experience with water contamination is also instructive. In Pennsylvania, shale gas is accessed at depths of thousands of feet while drinking water is extracted from depths of only hundreds of feet. Nowhere in the state have fracking compounds injected at depth been shown to contaminate drinking water.

In one study of 200 private water wells in the fracking regions of Pennsylvania, water quality was the same before and soon after drilling in all wells except one. The only surprise from that study was that many of the wells failed drinking water regulations before drilling started."

The article does point out potential negatives associated w/ fracking but I believe the statement "to pollute all our water supplies with shale gas fracking chemicals" to be factually incorrect.

When United States Patent 8,440,438 provides low cost energy to the citizens of the planet based on its own capitalistic merits then it will get my praise. But first it has to prove it can stand on its own two feet. Until then WVUGEO, your quoting of numerous patent applications serves no useful purpose.

Working people of the world: Obama and the rest of the so-called globalists have an agenda which is not in your best interest. They want your property, they want to enslave you by making you dependent on them for survival. They seek to reduce the planet's population one way or another to increase their wealth. They are the NAZIs of the 21st century.

"We don't have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society," Obama said. "Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it's not going to protect you from the coming storm."

Like an As-Seen-On-TV infomercial the President is saying we must act now.

(Translation: get this done before the citizenry have time to think about it)

"We know that the costs of these events can be measured in lost lives and lost livelihoods."

Their is no evidence, only speculation, to support the above claim.

"The planet is warming. Human activity is contributing to it," Obama said.

Warming? somewhat yes, but it has done this many time in the past and the planet has experienced devastating ice-ages many times in the past.

“In a world that's warmer than it used to be, all weather events are affected by the warming planet,” Obama said.

"Those who are feeling the effects of climate change don't have time to deny it — they're busy dealing with it

In a world that's warmer than it used to be, all weather events are affected by the warming planet,” Obama said.

OK some for the better, some for the worse. What do you do? ADAPT.

"Those who are feeling the effects of climate change don't have time to deny it — they're busy dealing with it

Oh, really? he's trying to make you believe that 'extreme weather events' are somehow connected to global warming but in reality 'extreme weather' is pretty*****common. In fact, it is the natural state of the planet. The cavemen had no control over it and neither do we. And, it is probably better that we can't 'control' the climate because we would probably **** it up.

"Protect Americans From Our President"

You no what, I think the American people have pretty much figured this clown out. Now they really need to get ******-off and do something about him and the rest of the bipartisan DC establishment.

coal's loss will be a huge gain for gas and the OV: one of the World's greatest sources. Coal power stations will be essentially outlawed. Nuclear may have a come back with the new prefab smaller plants.

big gas/oil have just de balled coal. They want the power station business and will get it. This is politics. CHPK is looking good now. So is OV gas.

atoddh: I disagree, we must use all energy sources at our disposal. There is no denying that there is a limit to available energy resources. Hopefully there will be a brekthrough in the future. Currently so called Green energy resources are woefully inadequate. Nuclear has potential but has gotten a lot of bad publicity (perhaps justified).
