November 27, 2013

Methane is a much more potent greenhouse gas than Carbon Dioxide; and, studies at shale gas fields out west show that as much as thirty percent of the methane in a producing field is lost to the atmosphere through cracks induced by fracking. More is lost during distribution. Other studies, by Cornell U. and others, demonstrate that continuing to exploit shale gas as we are will cause more global warming than will continuing to burn coal at our present rate. On the plus side, the USDOE has developed technology to convert CO2 and H2O into gasoline, diesel and jet fuel; and, on October 29 of this year, the US DOE published "Solicitation Number 14-396" for their "Sunshine-to-Petrol (TM)" or "S2P", "Renewable Drop-in Transportation Fuels", for companies to participate with the USDOE in establishing an industry that will use solar power to convert CO2 and H2O into gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.

As we chalantly stir the fires of debate relative to the planet's climatic well-being (for sake of some holiday clicks) let us fail in the comprehension of the fact that increasing carbon dioxide, coupled with increases of methane and nitrous oxide, throw our highly sensitive ecosystem off-kilter . These gases, my environmental dummies, then trap heat in our atmosphere which it cannot release ...and happy Thankksgiving!...oh geesh, what's new and exciting wit dat Bellaire Bridge conundrum?

Ohio rrethinking more than climate change assertions:

The botched rollout of Barack Obama's signature health care law continues to take a political toll on the president. The latest evidence is a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday morning showing the president's approval rating hitting a record low of 34 percent in Ohio. Obama's disapproval rating has jumped to an all-time high of 61 percent. This represents a significant decline from Quinnipiac's last poll in Ohio on June 26, when Obama recorded a 40 percent approval rating and a 57 percent disapproval rating.

The president's personal credibility has also taken a serious hit, thanks to his broken pledge that Americans would be able to keep their health care plans. Only 39 percent of Ohioans now believe the president is "honest and trustworthy," a new low, while 57 percent believe he is not "honest and trustworthy," a new high.
