Obama’s Energy Plan: A Disaster In the Making!

“So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”

Our nation desparately needs a sound energy plan.  It is not only a matter of Economics, but of our National Security.  Our dependance on foriegn oil not only is the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of the world, but leaves us vulnerable to the nations that we depend on for our very existence.

Our economy and the standard of living for every American depends on energy.  We need it to transport food and essentials as well as to feed our industry.  Without it, the cities would starve because food could not be transported in the quantities needed for survival.

Obama in his own words would adopt Cap and Trade policies that he thinks would bankrupt the coal industry.  In other words, ANOTHER TAX.  The Democrats just LOVE taxes and can’t get enough of them.  To them this is the best sceme yet, tax “the evil polluters”.

This is at best a stupid move because the United States has 27% of the world’s coal.  We have more than any other country in the world.  We have enough to last us another 200 to 250 years and because coal is so abundant in the U.S., it supplies half of our electricity.  This is an enormous amount of energy that we have at our disposal to help solve an energy crisis.

In effect the Messiah Obama would tax the coal industry and anyone using coal for energy, to levels that he  thinks would force them into bankruptcy.

The flaw in his logic is that first, we have no other sources of energy that could replace the coal and second, that they would not pass on the increased costs to you the consumer.  Do you really think your local utility can afford to absorb all of this added cost without passing it on to you?  If they cannot provide electricity with Coal, then what would they use?

Nuclear, No Obama is against that unless it can be “100% safe”.  A weasel word which means not a chance in hell.

Hydro-Electric?  No, too ecologically damaging to our rivers and wildlife and could not be produced in sufficient quantity.

Natural Gas?  No, pipelines would damage the ecology and there is insufficient quantity.

Obama is basically against any viable alternative form of energy and I suppose he would charge you a carbon tax for rubbing two sticks together!

Coal, Oil and Nuclear Power provide our country with 70% of our electricity.  Natural Gas provides 20%, Hydro-electric provides 7% and ONLY the remaining 3% is provided by the industries that Obama actually supports.

To suggest that Wind, Wave and Solar are serious alternatives is beyond stupid, it is dangerous.

That half of our simple minded electorate actually beleives this maniac is a tradgedy of huge proportions.  I fear that once the results of these policies are experienced, it will be too late to change them and we will be well down the path to a total meltdown in societal order.
