Why should profitable and productive private companies, paying billions in taxes and employing lots of workers heed a president who has produced nothing but his own autobiography?
0 is in for a bumpy ride
Last I read, electric'hybrid cars are energy negative when you calculate the extra energy it takes to build them, and charge them up.
Likewise, I've read that solar cells and wind farms are so expensive that there is no savings (negative in fact) to consumers....
I’m of the understanding that he may not have even produced that. It seems Mr. Ayers is most likely the ghost author.
What will work? There is nothing to this but hot air.
Obama's "renewable" energy program does nothing to replace middle east oil. All the wind energy in the world will not replace a drop of OPEC oil. What does it do? At best, it replaces coal and natural gas, resources we have enormous supplies of, and it replaces them at enormous cost.
It is a sham and a fraud.
Meanwhile they are doing everything they can to stymie domestic energy production, the real kind, the kind that really will replace OPEC oil. Why would that be? Because they are shills for OPEC.
Their program is designed to stunt economic growth and maintain our addiction to OPEC. That part is "working" just great.
I suppose the oil companies are next on his list of intimidation.
Hussein is a hack.
Remember when the DNC and their press monkeys used to find it scandalous that our president and vice-president actually knew something about the energy business?
And demanded an investigation when Cheney consulted actual energy producers about energy policy?
India and China each have populations of 1 billion people. India and China are getting online to use gasoline cars.
If man IS causing global warming, the contributions from these 2 nations will outweigh ANY savings that come from USA getting off of gasoline.
This is against American industry and interests. Man Made Global Warming is a hoax and a “crisis” that is being used to usher in “CHANGE”. Economic “CHANGE” that will cripple our nation. As designed.
If any freepers out there are looking to deal with oil, please contact me.
Oh goody..Our Resident Idiotnot content with trying to destroy the banking industry and the auto industry nowwants to destroy the oil/gas industry. By the time the Resident is done we will not even recognize America......
The author of this NY Times piece, Jad Mouawad, chose the wrong adjective to describe the Obama regime's policy prescriptions. If he had wanted to write honestly, what he should have written is:
The Obama administration wants to reduce oil consumption, increase renewable energy supplies and cut carbon dioxide emissions in the most foolish transformation of energy policy in a generation.
Looks like Hussein will have some brand new companies to take over when he gets back.
of course they like to make a profit. I guess Obama will have to offer them federal support to keep them profitable.
Oh really. Well then, a bailout is in order, apparently. Then, like with the mafia, you'll do whatever we say--or else.
