Obama Promises Economic Suicide with Looney Green Binge

This at a time of chronically and crushingly high unemployment, slow growth, jittery markets and deep economic uncertainty.] How does President Obama respond? With a grandiloquent speech on climate change. – Charles Krauthammer

Sierra Club Radicals Declare Another War, This Time Against Common Sense

They have just declared war on the natural-gas industry. The Sierra Club already has their “Beyond Coal” campaign, and “Beyond Oil,” and they are renaming their efforts against natural gas as “Beyond Gas”. Clever.

The Human Consequences of Obama’s EPA War on Coal

EPA policies may add $52 billion to Americans’ electricity bills by 2022. That means higher energy bills for Maria Tworek and everyone else who buys electricity. There are real, human consequences of electricity price hikes, something that policymakers would do well to keep in mind.

Obama’s “green” jobs lies

The BLS’ new category of “green goods and services” uses an arbitrary and expansive definition to inflate its numbers, but even if the accounting made sense, the category would still be useless for policymakers. If the government really wants to help with job creation, it should just get out of the private sector’s way.

Krauthammer: Obama shuts down coal industry, kills jobs, raises electric rates – offers algae

Obama warned us in 2008 that under his plan “electricity rates would necessarily have to skyrocket.” He also told crowds that he would ask Americans to “sacrifice” by paying higher energy costs and higher gas prices.

Little Green Morons

After three years of the most astonishingly stupid and wasteful green energy policies inflicted on Americans, it is hard keeping score of the various beneficiaries of government largess that are going bankrupt. The most famous at this point is Solyndra that went belly up taking a half billion in loan guarantees—taxpayer funded—with it. Beacon Power, a green energy storage plant, filed for bankruptcy last fall took with it $43 million of more Department of Energy loan guarantees. Ener1, touted during a visit by Vice President Joe Biden—who inadvertently called it “Enron1”—filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The electric car battery maker had received a $118 million grant from the Obama administration.
