Skip to comments.Obama Admin. Caught Red-Handed Working with Big Wind Energy Lobbyists, Misleading America People

It is almost impossible to know who is the government and who the lobbyists. They have merged into one single animal with different faces. Dr. Gabriel Calzada, Spanish economics professor and researcher
BACKGROUND: Last March, Spanish economics professor Gabriel Calzada published an academic analysis that showed for every green job created in Spain, 2.2 jobs were lost as an opportunity cost. This finding contradicted the Obama Administrations claim that massive subsidies for wind and solar energy would create jobs.
Calzadas study gained national attention from the media and policymakers, making it difficult for the Administration to advance such failed policies. The Administrations response? Huddle with big wind lobbyists and other special-interest groups to collaborate on a taxpayer-funded rebuttal to Calzadas work. When the media and some in Congress inquired about the highly unusual step the Administration took in analyzing and responding to an analysis of the Spanish experience with renewable energy and green jobs, senior level government officials were not forthright or honest in their response.

call Fox News fast ...they are busy raking republicans over the coals for some internet pictures....lol
So this is a story about the left in general and Obama specifically making claims they cannot back up,claims and numbers they pull out of thin air.
Well,its not like thats never happened before.
Like that couldn’t be the standing headline for the past year.
People are angry. Very angry.
I’d like to see it but who in congress will go after a liar when its a way of life for them? They have no issues with lies.
Beck’s been reporting this for a while now....in Spain, for ever green job created, two other jobs are lost.
It seems there is a scandal a day with these dirt bags. A few days later, nothing is ever heard about it again.
Ping list please
I’m not a fan of wind or solar farms. Much too big of a footprint. Author on Dennis prager said it would take a solar farm 7 miles by 7 miles to produce the energy of one nuke plant. Build nukes and build them now.
I’ve added you.
