Posted on 10/20/2013 2:32:05 PM PDT by Moseley
On June 25, Obama proposed a new Climate Action Plan to further the extremist war on coal. Nationwide, Obamas EPA regulations are contributing to the loss of an estimated 13,000 17,000 jobs from the closures announced of 205 coal plants. Because of Obamas plan, the nation will be losing more than 31,000 megawatts of electrical generating capacity.
Here in New Hampshire, our electricity supply and jobs are under attack, as they are nationwide, by Obamas yes women in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House. Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen has proven herself a reliable me too vote for Obama, as evidenced by her recent stance on Obamas plans to bomb Syria. New Hampshires Shaheen mimes whichever nonsensical agenda position Obama is pushing at the moment.
So hundreds of jobs are now at risk at New Hampshires 440-megawatt coal-powered Merrimack Station electricity generator in Bow, as well as Schiller Stations two 50-megawatt coal-fired generating plants in Portsmouth. America needs to elect representatives in Congress in 2014 with the courage to stop the liberal war on coal.
New Hampshire recently spent $450 million on scrubbers that make burning coal much cleaner at Merrimack Station. Yet unless we send common-sense congressmen and senators to Washington, those good jobs and our household utility bills are still at risk.
Obama and his congressional foot soldiers want to reduce carbon dioxide the gas that plants need to grow and thrive. They are acting on the hypothesis that human activities are the cause of Earths rising climate temperatures. That hypothesis, however, has all but been debunked, with the report that ice in the Arctic region actually grew from 2012 to 2013 by an additional one million square miles.
Obama and the climate-change imaginers rely solely on predictive computer models as their only basis for blaming humans.

Yet those computer models fail to predict temperatures in the real world. The models dont work. However, the computers models are the only reason to believe that human activities affect climate. We know the models are defective, but there is nothing else.
Furthermore, the temperature readings are faulty. Alarmists are feeding inaccurate data into their computers, as revealed by Meteorologist Anthony Watts. Watts team visually inspected most weather monitoring stations. Watts found that 89 percent of the stations nearly nine of every 10 fail to meet the National Weather Services own siting requirements that stations must be 30 meters (about 100 feet) or more away from an artificial heating or radiating/ reflecting heat source.
Watts conclusion: The U.S. temperature record is unreliable, and it should not be cited as evidence of any trend in temperature that may have occurred across the U.S. during the past century.
Which is why Tennant is running 20 points behind in the West Virginia senate race.
Not familiar with Tennant. Do tell. Help us out!
Haha, you’re not the only one. She’s a non-entity. Former AG of West Virginia. She’s at something like 34 in the polls. WV is going red. Now if we could just get rid of Manchin.
Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to charge your phone and car on windy days.

>>Obamas EPA regulations are contributing to the loss of an estimated 13,000 17,000 jobs
I’ve worked in or around coal-fired power plants for most of my life. Almost all the workers are white, so those job losses don’t count in the ObamaNation.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.
3. The earth is a rock.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
>>Lesson for today:
>>3. The earth is a rock.
Actually, the earth is a rocky outer shell over a molten core and that molten core expels more greenhouse gases than all of humanity each year. Also, the most prosperous time in the earth’s history for bio-diversity (which is a good thing, according to liberals) was when the greenhouse gases were much higher than they are now.
“Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?”
Ummm...we can give all our money to Al Gore in return for pieces of paper he calls carbon credits? That should control the sun.
Too little too late rom their democrat union:,
2012;The United Mine Workers of America, a prominent Democratic union and avid supporter for President Obama in 2008, is at its breaking point with the Obama administrations War on Coal. After calls from their rank and file whove seen plants closed, pink-slips and jobs threatened at the hands of President Obamas EPA the UMWA is sitting this one out. Pretty telling of the changing tides when even UMWA officials cant remember the last time they didnt endorse a presidential candidate.
2008: "Senator Obama shares the values of UMWA members and our families. He understands and will fight for the needs our members have today and the hopes our members have for a secure future for themselves and their families," union president Cecil E. Roberts said.
I do not believe that owebama believes all of this gorebull warming nonsense. he simply sees it as an opportunity to further destroy the economy and competitiveness of the USA while grabbing more power for his god fedgov.
Over-Bama. That’s great. And I think you’re right
Tell me something. After the recent travesty of some “Government workers” being forced into paid leave where are all the bleeding hearts when these obviously lesser beings are forced out of their careers?
In the not too distant future when the fourth Obama
administration realizes it needs coal desperately
and there are very few coal miners left, they will
locate the re-education camps over the coal seams
and provide employment for millions of zeks.
Of course they won’t call them zeks but will come up
with their own endearing term.
