The Predestined Failure of Obama’s Energy Policy

When Obama said, on multiple occasions, “energy prices will necessarily skyrocket” and “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket,” he meant it. – American Thinker

The entirety of “green energy” is filled with micro-thinking, where a cursory (at best) understanding of technology and engineering has combined with narrowed visions and worldly ignorance to create “energy solutions” which fail in technological readiness, suitability to purpose, or market support.


Artificially inflating energy prices through dictates and taxes is just one way to make “green” technologies more marketable.  The effects of inflating the prices of conventional technologies can be enhanced by simultaneously subsidizing “green” technologies.


Direct government manipulation of markets has never worked.  Every child knows that if you touch a hot pan you will get burned, so attempting yet another version of failure makes no sense.  Unfortunately, President Obama seems to believe that he can touch the hot pan and he will not be burned, because in his words, “we are the ones we have been waiting for.”  The problem is that his is not the hand he is pressing onto the frying pan.  The hand is ours.  What kind of man would force someone else’s hand onto a hot pan and tell him that everything will be fine?
