Obama energy secretary mocks coal states; Claims Obama has ‘all of the above’ energy strategy

Carbon capture and sequestration is pure fantasy…. and Obama and Ernest Moniz know that.

The Associated Press reports:

President Barack Obama and the U.S. Department of Energy are committed to a role for coal in a national energy strategy, and they’ve backed it up with research spending, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said Monday.

In a visit to the National Energy Technology Laboratory in Morgantown — the only one of the federal government’s 17 national labs dedicated to fossil fuels — Moniz said the administration has spent $6 billion on clean-coal technology with an emphasis on the capture, storage and reuse of carbon emissions.

“We have an ‘all of the above’ strategy, and it’s real,” he said.

  1. Go stand on the edge of the grand canyon and gaze at the limestone cliffs which were deposited between 300 million and 700 million years ago. CO2 sequestration is not fantasy. Mother nature has done it in warm shallow seas for eons.

  2. “…Moniz said the administration has spent $6 billion on clean-coal technology with an emphasis on the capture, storage and reuse of carbon emissions…” That’s not an all-of-the-above strategy, that’s a waste-$6b-on-something-to-appease-a-chimera strategy.

  3. Its not just the limestone. Mother Nature also sequestered CO2 as crude oil, natural gas, and coal. All the carbon in these sources came from the atmosphere and given enough time will eventually return.

  4. I presume the no-safe-level-of-CO2-research is also part of research spending ostensibly “backing up coal”.
