Skip to comments.My Diminished Capacity to Understand Obama's Clean Energy Policy
Posted on 03/22/2012 6:32:17 PM PDT by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny
It took President Obamas Press Secretary Jay Carney to shock me to my senses. As someone who favors cutting government spending on clean energy and eliminating government subsidies in general, I was particularly distressed to learn (in Carneys words) that I am aggressively and deliberately ignorant of the world economy not to know and understand that clean energy technologies are going to play a huge role in the 21st century. Even worse, I learn that I have a severely diminished capacity to understand what drives economic growth in industrialized countries in this century.
And I had thought that if clean energy technologies were going to dominate the 21st century, private enterprise would figure this out and develop them itself. In my ignorance, I thought that subsidies are dictated by and for special interests not by economic rationality. I also believed that Solyndra and SunPower were not aberrations but representative of what is going on in Secretary Chus and Obamas energy department. What I fool I have been.

Obama lives in a green fantasy land. His war on carbon energy sources has created misery and economic contraction. But its just one cog of the Obama poverty dynamic. Record deficit spending, dollar printing, unsustainable debt, unfunded liabilities,business killing rules and regulations,and high taxes are impoverishing the American people.
I’ll tell you what it means.
It means Obama, and his co-horts have found another path to rob the treasury.
Carney is the worst Press Secretary ever, even beating out Gibbs, who was the most clueless presidential press secretary ever.
Where does Obama find these wackos = “Wackos R Us”?
Its ultimately up to Congress, and Obama will sign whatever they send him.
They have been working on it for a while, and the latest version is the Clean Energy Standards Act of 2012.
The HUGE ROLE which green energy will play in the 21st Century will be the alarming rate at which national treasuries are drained trying to prove their worth.
Unicorns, anyone???!!! How about Bigfoot? Nessie??
