Good News: Obama Energy Secretary Nominee Wants To Skyrocket Your Energy Costs

Sound familiar? The Soros funded monkeys at Joe Romm’s Climate Progress are thrilled by this notion (at least as it pertains to Other People)

Tuesday is the confirmation hearing date for Energy Secretary nominee Ernest Moniz. The MIT professor will face the Senate Energy and Natural Resources committee (webcast here starts at 10 am ET). (snip)

Moniz is exceedingly knowledgeable about carbon issues. Just last year told the Switch Energy Project he supports a carbon price that would substantially increase electricity costs:

If we start really squeezing down on carbon dioxide over the next few decades, well, that could double; it could eventually triple…. I think inevitably if we squeeze down on carbon, we squeeze up on the cost, it brings along with it a push toward efficiency; it brings along with it a push towards clean technologies in a conventional pollution sense; it brings along with it a push towards security. Because after all, the security issues revolve around carbon-bearing fuels.”

Romm, the writer of the above post, fails to mention that this will cause serious financial hardship for middle and lower income Americans. Leftists/Warmists could care less about harming (Other) people, because they have a narrow rigid fascistic dogma to enact.

And this is different from former Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu how?

High energy prices impact the middle class and the poor far more than the upper class. The fact that the Obama administration wants to hurt the people who can least afford it shows where their priorities are, and what kind of people they are.

Very true. thus, more energy that we have from easily attainable, cheap sources of fuel will allow greater financial and strategic security.

But, limiting our access to fuel will do nothing but kill millions of people.

Congrats Socialists on succeeding in your plan time and time again. you’ve managed to kill hundreds of millions of people over the last millennia, now you’re gonna kill millions more.

You know the end of the world is nigh when cultist clap-trap crap like this is seen as high science.

Teach the price of energy is going up. Fossil fueled power will continue to go up, solar watt prices will continue to go down. Congratulations Gummie blaming liberals for everything, most times when people blame others for anything they do so just to make themselves feel better about themselves.

Yep, I place blame where it belongs. And you have the pricing structure bass-ackwards again.

Petroleum based fuels has gotten cheaper. Natural gas prices are the lowest ever, or at least in a very very long time. Gasoline prices would be down if it weren’t for the excessive and increasing taxes on it. Electricity prices are going up because EPA and the Socialists are closing down power plants left and right. You also then add on the excessive regulations and taxes upon energy production.

And, how can you say solar prices are going down when it still costs the same as several decades ago? If any, most of the price reduction is because of people like me forcibly paying in to the illegal subsidies. (I say illegal because they are not evenly distributed and seek to benefit a small isolated sect of a business type.)

Of course the price of energy is going up. You liberals are driving the costs higher and higher with taxes and then giving tax credits and money to other sources. You seem enamored with solar power despite its lack of productivity, space consumption, falsely lowered costs and impact on the environment.

So have you installed a solar panel on your home and are you using any fossil fuels? Or are you just happy causing pain to others?

Oh, I am sure he is bicycling to work and using solar energy to power his non-rare-earth metal, locally created, no-CO2-created computational device.

I bet he uses only cold rain water to bathe in – water collected in the underground cistern that he dug himself using hand-made bricks.

And I bet he uses 1 piece of toilet paper too.

Hey brain dead regressive, when has solar EVER gone down? Other than bankruptcy down.
When has the bird killing wind BS EVER gone down?

You know, if you want to live like a 10th world scurvite, why don’t you move to north korea? No guns there either. REGRESSIVE UTOPIA!
