Every Moron who repeats the Moronic Gibberish that biofuels cut down on “greenhouse emissions” should be singled out for a National Moron Merit Badge.

“Hillary will expand on existing on-farm energy programs to create a new $150 million per year grant and loan incentive program to pay for up to 50 percent of the cost for farmers and ranchers to install on-farm energy technology, such as windmills, solar panels, and biodiesel oilseed presses on their operations. She will also provide incentives for carbon sequestration on farms and ranches as part of her emissions reduction program.”

Wow, she sounds suprahuman. Oh, BTW, what is carbon SEQUESTRATION? And is Al Gore the Chairman?

Lets see...250 bu of rapeseed = 12.5 gallons of oil, which should get me to the store and back...

Wonder why she didn’t do something about enery when she was co-president for eight years. We can ask Utah how well they helped them.

Bottom line; Hillary wants to eliminated 1000 high paying jobs in Montana and eliminate $65 million in payroll.

Montana Coal Production & Employment

Production and Value

The following chart shows production for 1997 through 2006. The price per ton at the various sites depends on the quality of coal (heating value, moisture content, sulfur and ash content, etc.) but an average for Calendar Year 2006 was $6.96 per ton making the value of that coal over $290 million. The price is established by the Department of Revenue after three state and two federal taxes are deducted.

Why does it have to be removed and stored somewhere else? To lengthen the halflife?

"how did she find us in Montana?"

Easy, just follow the trail of Republican defeats.

This used to be a red state. A Republican Governor, One Republican Senator, Our lone House of Reps. Congressman Rehberg (Republican) and a Republican State Senate and House.

Now the only thing Republican left over is Rehberg in the House.

The virus of liberalism is consuming our state at a disconcertingly rapid pace.

Let's sing together folks. Kumbaya my Lord, Kumbaya.

Dig a pit- channel your exhaust there- keep it there for centuries. Where will our plants get the CO2 they need?
The whole engineering industry has swallowed this crap.

Essentially to “lock it away” forever from the atmosphere. But remember this: All that carbon in all that coal, oil and natural gas was once IN THE ATMOSPHERE! We’re just putting it back where it came from!...............

She apparently wants MT to stop producing coal, which is the real solution to our national fuel problem......

“A new incentive program to help farmers and ranchers in Montana and across the country pay for up to 50 percent of the cost to install on-farm energy technology, such as windmills, solar panels, and biodiesel oilseed presses”

While Yomoma plans to impose Sharia Law, Hillary plans to starve us into submission.
