  1. Is everyone just going to standby and watch the energy capacity of the USA being crippled based on zero evidence? Is there not one person who will stand up and say – Mr Obama – you have no clothes?
    Are professional scientists so cowed that they will say nothing?

    NONE of the forecasts – sorry ‘projections’ – of the climate modelers have come to pass NONE. Yet the Administration is _pretending_ to believe the failed models? As they are not stupid, that means that the reason for reducing the energy capacity of the USA is nothing to do with ‘climate change’. The Administration should declare the real reason for their intent before doing an end run around Congress and the Senate using Executive Orders with the compliant EPA to impose nonsensical regulation based on the unscientific and unproven claim that carbon dioxide – essential for all life – is a pollutant.

    Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

  2. He’s making good on his campaign promise the first time around. He was elected to do this. It is the will of the people.

    Not that anyone believed he was really serious when he said such an outrageous thing about making coal ‘bankrupt’.

  3. The hoax continues. Obama is consolidating his lock on power. It will take a 55 gallon drum of K-Y jelly to get this clown out of the WH in 2017.
