Fury as hospitals hit with outages while post-industrial collapse of America accelerates

The rolling blackouts now being implemented in Texas and across the country as record cold weather grips the United States are a direct consequence of the Obama administration’s agenda to lay siege to the coal industry, launch a takeover of infrastructure under the contrived global warming scam, and help usher in the post-industrial collapse of America.

Third world almost. Humbling and inspiring isn't it? Another few years and healthcare will consist of an online chat with a shayman in Kenya to cure your bladder infection.

No co-pay though!

I agree that 0bama’s energy policies produce a net negative atmospheric pressure (they suck,) but he’s only been in office for two years. No policy of his regarding power plant construction would have made any difference today, because it takes much longer than two years to build a power plant and get it online.

The windo she is broken and the cold is coming in.
If some one doesn’t warm us I’ll be froze down past my skin.
But if I wait a day or two the cold will go away.
and we don’t need no coal plant on such a sunny day!

Man-yana, man-yana! Man-yana is good enough for me!

PLANNED POWER OUTAGES

are a result of...

not Fred Flinstone's

not George Washington's

not George Bushes

FAILED and FAILING ENERGY POLICIES

They are a result of

OBAMA's failed and failing current orders and energy policies.

http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2011/02/02/107928/planned-power-outages-hit-cold.html

Do you want a link to OBAMA's DEPT of ENERGY saying ooops our bad?

Do you expect the media to report anything bad about Obama?

The republicans should pass resolutions calling for Obama to stop blocking these plants from being built.

Give him a week to respond, then pass legislation requiring him to stop blocking these plants.

The ‘rat senate will block the legislation, but you get three media opportunities to highlight Obama’s No Energy plan: The resolution, the legislation, the defeat in the senate.

A simple, basic question. If planned power outages are planned what happens when hell freezes over in the great state of Texas during one?

The problem in Texas may wells have been exacerbated by the dependence on wind energy. On February 28, 2008 rolling blackouts in Texas similar to what they are currently experiencing were narrowly averted when a weather front idled most of the state’s wind turbines. The current cold has outstripped the state’s generating capacity and my bet is the wind turbines were largely idle as the cold conditions often do not produce high winds.

The headline said OBAMA'S BLOCKING OF NEW POWER PLANTS TRIGGERS NATIONWIDE BLACKOUTS which is patently false.

His policies may trigger future blackouts, but as I said previously, it takes longer than two years to build a power plant and put it online.

TCN Journal
[ December 23, 2010 ]
EPA will issue climate-rule permits in Texas, feds tell state officials

Texas stands alone among the states in refusing to be involved in implementing the new greenhouse rules, which are scheduled to start taking effect on Jan. 2. Earlier this month, a federal appeals court turned down requests from Texas and other litigants to block the regulations until legal challenges are decided.

Formal EPA action to assume control over the climate-related part of the federally-authorized state permit program will happen “on or about” Thursday, Dec. 23, the federal agency told the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, the state’s chief pollution-regulating agency, in a letter dated Tuesday. The EPA only rarely takes such a step.

Under the new EPA rules, air permits required when large industrial plants are constructed or undergo major changes must include limits on greenhouse gases with other, previously regulated pollutants. The greenhouse regulations will apply to large facilities including power plants and oil refineries. Texas officials estimate that about 167 projects in the state will be affected in 2011.

“So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”
