DOE giving $575 million in carbon capture grants
Sac. Bee ^ | 9/7/10 | FREDERIC J. FROMMER

WASHINGTON - The Energy Department said Tuesday it was awarding $575 million for carbon capture research-and-development projects in 15 states. The experimental technique involves storing carbon dioxide emissions from coal plants and other sources underground, in an attempt to reduce pollution blamed for contributing to global warming. "This is a major step forward in the fight to reduce carbon emissions from industrial plants," said Energy Secretary Steven Chu. "These new technologies will not only help fight climate change, they will create jobs now and help position the United States to lead the world in clean coal technologies, which will only increase in demand in the years ahead."

STOP!!!

Its not just the feds, although they are the worse.
It is the local and state governments too.
They are all just wildly dreaming up new projects to spend money we do not have.

They are worse than drug addicts because drug addicts have to have the cash before they can get their fix.

CARBON CAPTURE? They need all of this money to do what; tell people they can’t use freon?

What in the hell exactly is carbon capture other than more wasteful spending?

Ahhh, Choo still believes the Global Scamming Fraud will work. He’s the one who stopped the water for Central California farmers over junk science. Send this clown packing.

Pray for America

I’d sure like to see the plan for how the money will be spent. I think about $574.9 million could be trimmed.

Here’s one more easy way to trim the size of government.
