Those emissions, by the way, declined in the US over the last 15 years, while soaring world-wide. Global warming has stalled over the same period according to The Economist.
Here’s the blow by blow in the battle for the hearts, minds, and votes of carbon based life forms.
If your in-box had an email from Richard Windsor it wasn’t necessarily junk mail. It was from former EPA administrator Lisa Jackson. That was her account for communicating with insiders (which is why you didn’t have mail from Richard Windsor). It turns out lots of people in the administration use secret email accounts.
President Obama has proclaimed his administration the most transparent in history. And it is – if you can afford a million dollars to find out a bureaucrat’s email addresses. That’s what the Labor Department tried to charge AP ($1.03 million).
Kevin O’Brien of the Plain Dealer spills Richard Windsor’s guts here.
EPA official Al Armendariz washed his hands of his Roman centurion approach to oil and gas executives.
“They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them,” Armendariz continued. “And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years. And so you make examples out of people who are in this case not compliant with the law.”
Among the savings on offer, is a jillion dollars by not fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A few weeks ago a NASA scientist speculated that we could be attacked by aliens upset about global warming – really. So far, it hasn’t happened. More savings for you.
Maybe I pick on Obama too much but, sheeez. After his NLRB shuts down a Boeing plant in South Carolina and the 5000 jobs that go with it, his Justice Department raids the Gibson Guitar company. Gibson guitars are made in the USA. The frets are made of imported rosewood which may be illegal to harvest in India. Under the Lacy Act of 1900 it would be illegal to violate another country’s law. Except India isn’t complaining. In fact if Gibson exported its manufacturing to India and imported the finished guitars here there would be no problem!
