Did I miss his coronation? Did someone make him king when I wasn’t watching?
Seriously, he can’t do that - he has no authority to do that.
How about the power companies just say, um.... NO??????? What is he going to do, send in his brownshirts to make them?
Most hated pResident ever.
TIME FOR AN AMERICAN SPRING!!!!!
People get what they elect. Ø is starting what hrc will finish.
After 8 yrs of hrc, we’re rEally done.
Not when the voting machines changed the Romney votes to Obama votes and thee polling place officials, when questioned about it, said that the vote went to Romney even though the machine said otherwise.
This queer bird needs to be regulated right out of the White Hut.
Apparently the Republicrat Party is going to stand idly by and watch the nation sink like the Titanic.
California here we come. Right back where we started from. yep, the rules out of California could go nationwide. My state also adapted the California power generation standards.
Every state that is currently feeding California power, needs to cut the line and let the liberals there deal with Obama and his idiotic dictates.
So when is Boehner going to cut the funding for the EPA? Rhetorical question.
Obama is euthanizing the electric car business. The only green he truly has an interest in is donor dollars. Three and 1/2 more years of this crap and more.
It's Good To Be King!
Those Old Fashioned Republics Are So Tiresome.
Obama will couch the effort not only in terms of the nations domestic priorities, but as a way to meet the administrations international pledge to reduce the countrys greenhouse-gas emissions 17 percent below 2005 levels. According to an independent analysis by the World Resources Institute, the United States will need to regulate existing power plants and take other steps as well to meet that goal.
WRI’s mission is to move human society to live in ways that protect Earth’s environment and its capacity to provide for the needs and aspirations of current and future generations.
I hate democrat Obama and his socialism
I hate democrats/communists
- Barry of the Bungle
- Obama-Rigging America
I hope everyone is has a full supply of ammo. Obama's people think blackouts are an invitation to loot. I will be looking at it as an opportunity to cull the herd. I am deadly serious about that.
Utility bills will catch and surpass healthcare premiums.
January 2008: Early in his first campaign for the White House, then-Senator Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle:
Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.... Coal-powered plants, you know, natural gas, you name it, whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.obama 2008 campaign video coal prices skyrocket
...The problem is not technical, uh, and the problem is not mastery of the legislative intricacies of Washington. The problem is, uh, can you get the American people to say, This is really important, and force their representatives to do the right thing? That requires mobilizing a citizenry. That requires them understanding what is at stake. Uh, and climate change is a great example.
You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because Im capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers.
They you you can already see what the arguments will be during the general election. People will say, Ah, Obama and Al Gore, these folks, theyre going to destroy the economy, this is going to cost us eight trillion dollars, or whatever their number is. Um, if you cant persuade the American people that yes, there is going to be some increase in electricity rates on the front end, but that over the long term, because of combinations of more efficient energy usage, changing lightbulbs and more efficient appliance, but also technology improving how we can produce clean energy, the economy would benefit.
If we cant make that argument persuasively enough, you you, uh, can be Lyndon Johnson, you can be the master of Washington. Youre not going to get that done.
