Hell hath no fury like a former liberal woman.
Welcome to our new energy policy in the U.S. Every man, woman and child will now be responsible for their own (and probably THEIR neighbors’) energy source and therefore must construct their own wind turbine outside their house. Then we must all read by candlelight, burn wood for heat and use outhouses. Is this 1809? Nope – 2009, baby! (via Ace)
Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, are you getting the sense I’m doubting the policies of this administration??? Heh.
Here’s the latest in the Carter 2.0 administration. Obama has officially pulled the plug on Yucca Mountain and indirectly said “no more” to nuclear power – yes, the cleanest and most reliable energy resource, he takes a pass on it and goes a step further to crazytown by putting restrictions on our current usage of it. Keep in mind that the radioactive material that would have been deposited here would have resulted in ”99.93 percent of the radioactivity originally placed in the repository would have decayed.” Oh, and the “small” fact that it would store there for (in my lame Dr. Evil impression) ONE MIIIIIILLION DOLLARS YEARS. As my dad would say to describe someone as being incompetent -
Oh, but what about reprocessing the spent nuclear rods? Oh, you mean doing the stuff that France does to recycle its nuclear energy??? Yeah, umm his mentor Jimmy “Tweedle Dumb” Carter made it illegal 30 years ago to reprocess. And who says that government never gets in the way of progress???
In shuttering Yucca Mountain, Obama makes it extremely likely that nuclear power in the United States will continue its long, slow, and extremely welcome death. For the next couple of decades, anyway.
It was pretty clear on the campaign that Obama opposed all nuclear plant sources for energy. In fact, I think if he really had his way there would be no clean coal, no natural gas and no nuclear – period. It would be all solar and wind.
The problem with those methods as a sole energy source is that electricity has to be constantly running and at a high pace in order to reach its mulitple, final destinations on the grid in an efficient but also constant fashion. Solar and Wind technologies ALWAYS (emphasis on ALWAYS) have to rely on another energy source. Why? Because they are not reliable. It doesn’t matter if you build 5, 10, 200,000 wind farms – you still need a power plant (nuclear/coal) to back it up and provide proper electricity levels to everyone on the grid. Wind energy technologies cannot support this on their own. And we’ve been going at this since the early 1970s, yet somehow it’s the next four years that’s going to solve the issues with wind energy. Oh! And unicorns DO EXIST! Yeeeeeeeeeeah!
So instead of finding a way to support a perfectly clean and recyclable (just ask France) energy technology like nuclear, Obama caters to the far-left environmentalists who he is indebted to and does away with any chance of making nuclear power not only better but as a bridge to an energy plan that is pro-environment.
Gee what’s next – National rolling blackouts? Way to go, President Gilligan!
The ranting and raving of a woman formally brainwashed under the liberal agenda. Through investigation, commentary and sarcasm about government, this woman is breaking free of the hypocritical liberal party that tries to manipulate women into believing only they can represent women’s rights. Get informed, get free, get Un-Liberaled! This blog does not endorse any particular candidate or party - although if I did, I most likely wouldn’t endorse a liberal candidate. For instance, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) or as I like to call her Smancy Pelotox would not get my vote. Comprende? Good. Hope you enjoy the rants! :)
