North Korea Claims Lead In Energy Conservation

MFNS - Pyongyang - A spokesman for the government of North Korea has responded to the release of NASA photos taken from the International Space Station showing a nearly dark North Korea by claiming the lead in global energy conservation.
“Once again, the United States and Europe are far behind The Democratic People's Republic of Korea. First, we vanquished the imperialist running dog militaristic war mongering ambitions of the United States and it oppressive allies with our threat of superior military technology, and now we have set the global standard in energy conservation. Our Dear Leader’s efforts to save the planet from destruction are at the forefront as usual. We are number one!
Your own spy satellite pictures show the proof of how so many North Korean citizens have voluntarily chosen to turn off their many cutting edge electrical appliances such as 4D television watching machines. All North Koreans live a life of splendor but voluntarily conserve, unlike the rest of the wasteful west and worst Korea. Praise to our Dear Leader Kim Jong Un!”
North Korean per capita power consumption is indeed about 7% that of South Korea, and that figure is reduced to 0.84% when Kim Jung-un’s microwave is excluded.

Obama’s Labor Day Diatribe Just More Economic BS

Photo Credit: Unknown

I wish I could say that I’m surprised with President Obama’s Labor Day diatribe but I’d be lying if I said that. If people haven’t noticed by now, 2 of President Obama’s dominant character traits are his love of NBA-style trash-talking and his inability to resist bragging up his pathetic economic policies. Simply put, he’s a legend in his own mind. He’s also a confirmed liar.

Part of the freshest proof that he’s a confirmed liar is when he said “The fact is the verdict is in: Middle-class economics works.” Mr. President, that isn’t a fact. That’s an opinion. Actually, it’s an opinion that’s shared only within the farthest left part of the Democratic Party. Vice President Biden doesn’t even believe that. Mr. President, if  your “middle class economics” is working, why did your Vice President say that “the U.S. economy” was “devastating for workers”? Mr. President, if your “middle-class economics” work, why are the U.S. economic policies you’ve put in place producing the most anemic ‘sustained’ economic growth since the Great Depression?

This part of President Obama’s speech is exceptionally ironic:
"Unfortunately, there are some folks in Washington and some folks who are trying to get to Washington who don’t want to face these facts … in their world, the only way to help the country grow and help the country get ahead is to cut taxes for millionaires and billionaires."
"And then you just look up at the sky and prosperity will come raining down on us from whatever high rise is in your city. But that’s not how the economy works. These folks are pretty stubborn. I will give them credit. They don’t let facts or evidence get in the way."
Mr. President, why do you insist that your opponents “don’t let facts or evidence get in the way” of their economic arguments when it’s you that has ignored anemic GDP statistics and things like the Workforce Participation Rate, which is at its lowest rate in 38 years? If  your “middle-class economics” works, why are 94,000,000 people who normally would be in the workforce not looking for work?

The truth is that President Obama’s policies are failed policies. It’s time to stop this disaster. It’s time to implement pro-growth economic policies. It’s time to roll back 90% of the Obama administration’s job-killing regulations.

Obama still hasn’t admitted that you can’t be for a strong middle class and anti-job creators at the same time.

Our New $737 Million Dollar Bird Fryer

Just in Time for 4th of July

The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project array is nearly ready to go partially online in Nevada. The $737 Million publicly Department Of Energy funded project is intended to produce 110 MW of energy. There’s just one problem.

130 birds were literally set on fire in mid flight during a recent test run in the span of 2 hours. This is because the array redirects solar energy to a point 1200 feet above ground, right in the flightpath of birds.

Nature World News reports:

“About two hours into the test, engineers and biologists on site started noticing “streamers” – trails of smoke and steam caused by birds flying directly into the field of solar radiation. What moisture was on them instantly vaporized, and some instantly burst into flames – at least, until they began to frantically flap away. An estimated 130 birds were injured or killed during the test.”
According to The Associated Press (AP), many biologists call the number of deaths “significant” and suspect that the streamers are caused by a chain of attraction – that is, insects are drawn towards the bright plant’s light, which in turn attracts birds looking to feast on crispy bugs.

A sturdy chicken catapult and a mess of baked beans and potato salad and we got us a one hell of a 4th of July celebration dinner.

Our Government in Action.....

Government bureaucrats: that thin, blue-flannel-suit line between civilization and Somalia. The Environmental Protection Agency, for instance, keeps us from having exploding water and headless chickens have done some odd things recently.  Contractors built secret man caves in an EPA warehouse, an employee pretended to work for the CIA to get unlimited vacations and one worker even spent most of his time on the clock looking at pornography. But it appears, however, that a regional office has reached a new low.

Management for Region 8 in Denver, Colo., wrote an email earlier this year to all staff in the area pleading with them to stop inappropriate bathroom behavior.  Eric Katz of the FedBlog tells America that EPA employees ARE POOPING IN THE HALLWAY, and that they are being told to STOP IT.

"In the email, obtained by Government Executive, Deputy Regional Administrator Howard Cantor mentioned “several incidents” in the building. Confounded by what to make of this occurrence, EPA management “consulted” with workplace violence “national expert” John Nicoletti, who said that hallway feces is in fact a health and safety risk. He added the behavior was “very dangerous” and the individuals responsible would “probably escalate” their actions. 
“Management is taking this situation very seriously and will take whatever actions are necessary to identify and prosecute these individuals" 
He asked for any employees with knowledge of the poop bandit or bandits to notify their supervisor. EPA spokesman Richard Mylott provided the following statement:
“EPA cannot comment on ongoing personnel matters. Our brief consultation with Dr. Nicoletti on this matter, a resource who regularly provides our office with training and expertise on workplace issues, reflects our commitment to securing a safe workplace.”
“Dangerous”? “Escalating”?  Smearing shit around is a time-honored tradition in American government.

In an effort to curb global warming, The Cow of the Future Project begins a quest to create the “Star Athlete” of the bovine world.

Defy the Narrative

If you were thinking I made that up, I didn’t. The story, complete with strap-on gas tanks for cows is here.
“A White House climate initiative has boosted a quixotic search for the “cow of the future”, a next-generation creature whose greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by anti-methane pills, burp scanners and gas backpacks.
Carbon dioxide from fossil fuels is the primary man-made gas warming the planet, but methane is far more potent and the US’s biggest source of it is its 88m cattle, which produce more than landfill sites, natural gas leaks or hydraulic fracturing.
The Obama administration’s launch last month of a plan to curb methane emissions has given fresh relevance to climate-friendly technologies for cattle that range from dietary supplements and DNA gut tests to strap-on gas tanks.....”

Babs Boxer Humiliated in Senate Committee Meeting

I don’t have much patience for people who deny climate change.......the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or 10 years ago.” -  Barrack Obama
A hearing on the science of climate change completely backfired on Democrat Senator Barbara Boxer earlier this month. When asked if any of the scientists on the panel agreed with President Obama’s assertion that climate change had rapidly increased during the last 10 years, not a single on of the scientists agreed.

from Forbes:
"Climate scientists including United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) lead author Hans von Storch report temperatures have remained essentially flat for the past 10 years, and indeed for the past 15 years. Storch told Der Spiegel that 98 percent of IPCC climate models cannot replicate the prolonged pause in global warming, and IPCC may need to revise its computer models to correct their apparent warming bias.
During yesterday’s Environment and Public Works hearings, Sen. David Vitter asked a panel of experts, including experts selected by Boxer, “Can any witnesses say they agree with Obama’s statement that warming has accelerated during the past 10 years?”
For several seconds, nobody said a word. Sitting just a few rows behind the expert witnesses, I thought I might have heard a few crickets chirping, but I couldn’t tell for sure. We’ll give Obama the benefit of the doubt and count the crickets in the “maybe” camp.
After several seconds of deafening silence, global warming activist Heidi Cullen, who formerly served as a meteorologist for the Weather Channel, attempted to change the subject. Cullen said our focus should be on longer time periods rather than the 10-year period mentioned by Obama. When pressed, however, she contradicted Obama’s central assertion and said warming has slowed, not accelerated.
Several minutes later, Sen. Jeff Sessions returned to the topic and sought additional clarity. Sessions recited Obama’s quote claiming accelerating global warming during the past 10 years and asked, “Do any of you support that quote?”
Again, a prolonged and deafening silence ensued. Neither Cullen nor any of the other experts on the panel spoke a word, not even in an attempt to change the subject.
Boxer may have envisioned her high-profile global warming hearings as an opportunity to build momentum for congressional or EPA action to restrict carbon dioxide emissions. Instead, the very global warming activists she called to serve as expert witnesses delivered a crushing blow to President Obama’s central justification for expensive new restrictions on carbon dioxide emissions."

"Democrats love to wrap themselves in the mantle of “pro-science," but when actual science is involved, they usually fall woefully short. And why? Because Democrats are agenda driven, not factually driven."

Hey Green Peoples..... Answer Me This:

What About Those 14,000 Abandoned Wind Turbines?

The US has had wind farms since 1981, but what the left and the green movement don't want to talk about regarding windmills is (as usual) the truth.

The truth is: windmills, like solar panels, break down. And like solar panels, windmills produce less energy before they break down than the energy it took to make them. That's the part liberals forget: making windmills and solar panels takes energy, energy from coal, oil, and diesel, energy that extracts and refines raw materials, energy that transports those materials to where they will be re-shaped into finished goods, energy to manufacture those goods. More energy than those finished windmills and solar panels will ever produce.

The symbol of Green renewable energy, our saviour from the non existent problem of Global Warming, abandoned wind farms are starting to litter the planet as globally governments cut the subsidies taxes that consumers pay for the privilege of having a very expensive power source that does not work every day for various reasons like it's too cold or the wind speed is too high.

The US experience with wind farms has left over 14,000 wind turbines abandoned and slowly decaying, in most instances the turbines are just left as symbols of a dying Climate Religion, nowhere have the Green Environmentalists appeared to clear up their mess or even complain about the abandoned wind farms. Thousands of abandoned wind turbines littered the landscape of wind energy's California "big three" locations--Altamont Pass, Tehachapin, and San Gorgonio--considered among the world's best wind sites.

The truth is: wind energy is just a tax scam. Ben Lieberman, a senior policy analyst focusing on energy and environmental issues for the Heritage Foundation, is not surprised.
"Therein lies a lesson for those who seek to make fortunes out of tax payer subsidies, and for those who want to live in a dream world of "clean energy", the whole renewables industry of solar, wind and biomass is just an artificial bubble incapable of surviving without subsides from governments and tax payers. The Green evangelists who push so hard for these wind farms, as usual have not thought the whole idea through."
The problem with wind farms when they are abandoned is getting the turbines removed, as usual there are no Green environmentalists to be seen. The City of Palm Springs was forced to enact an ordinance requiring their removal from San Gorgonio. But California's Kern County, encompassing the Tehachapi area, has no such law.

Could you imagine the outraged Green chorus if those turbines were abandoned oil drilling rigs.

Congress Overturns Incandescent Light Bulb Ban

Congressional negotiators struck a deal Thursday that overturns the new rules that were to have banned sales of traditional incandescent light bulbs beginning next year.

That agreement is tucked inside the massive 1,200-page spending bill that funds the government through the rest of this fiscal year, and which both houses of Congress will vote on Friday. Mr. Obama is expected to sign the bill, which heads off a looming government shutdown.

Congressional Republicans dropped almost all of the policy restrictions they tried to attach to the bill, but won inclusion of the light bulb provision, which prevents the Obama administration from carrying through a 2007 law that would have set energy efficiency standards that effectively made the traditional light bulb obsolete.

CIA Global Warming Intelligence Unit?

Even after news stories broke revealing that scientists fudged their climate change research, the Obama administration continues its
"green agenda" while wasting billions of dollars.

"Regardless of the fact that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) already possesses a multi-billion dollar intel center for global warming, a new report by a government watchdog group's blogger claims that the Obama administration believes the nation’s intelligence community needs yet another taxpayer-funded entity to better determine the impact of climate change on national security."
"According to a source within the intelligence community, the CIA launched The Center as the focal point for its work on the subject. The Center is a small unit led by senior specialists from the Directorate of Intelligence and the Directorate of Science and Technology.
"No one really knows what goes in in the exclusive unit because it operates under a cloak of secrecy that rejects all public-records requests, despite President Obama’s promise to run a transparent government. What we do know is that the unit is led by senior specialists.” 
Separate government evaluations revealed that global warming causes mental illness and cancer and that it creates national security threats by spreading disease among people and animals. Authored by government scientists from various agencies, the mental illness/cancer report claims global warming is one of the “most visible environmental concerns of the 21st century”......

So now we can blame all this on Global Warming also!
I just knew there was a good reason for all this cancerous insanity.
