Man With Largest Footprint In The World* Touts His Clean Energy Agenda

I’ll give you a moment to stop laughing and clean the tears from your eyes….ready? With Obamacare imploding around his ears, with the deficit continuing to skyrocket, with record debt, record numbers of people out of jobs in the long term, historic numbers of Americans giving up on getting a job in despair, running without a budget since he took office, foreign policy a mess, and so much more #Fail, what does he focus on?

(The Hill) President Obama focused on energy independence in his weekly address (video here, text here), following a week dominated by the chaotic rollout of his signature healthcare law.

Obama touted increased natural gas production, more efficient energy use and a drop in carbon emissions in his speech, arguing that lower carbon emissions don’t slow economic growth.

“Between more clean energy, and less wasted energy, our emissions of dangerous carbon pollution are actually falling. That’s good news for anyone who cares about the world we leave to our kids,” he said. “And while our carbon emissions have been dropping, our economy has been growing. Our businesses have created 7.8 million new jobs in the past 44 months. It proves that the old argument that we can’t strengthen the economy and be good stewards of our planet at the same time is a false choice. We can do both. And we have to do both.”

Well, he has the un-scientific idiot term of “dangerous carbon pollution” down pat. It’s neither dangerous nor pollution. Nor is it carbon. Properly, it is is carbon dioxide. A trace gas necessary for life on Earth. Much of the decline can be linked to the horrible economic conditions of the USA, where people came up with a term, “staycation”, for staying home during their vacation instead of traveling.

He also yammers on about how this is creating jobs and stuff. I’ll wait while you clean your screen from spitting your drink on it.

“More good jobs.  Cheaper and cleaner sources of energy.  A secure energy future.  Thanks to the grit and resilience of American businesses and the American people, that’s where we’re heading.  And as long as I’m President, that’s where we’re going to keep heading – to leave our children a stronger economy, and a safer planet,” he concluded.

Remember the list of all the green energy failures under Obama? Heck, Heritage put that together a year ago, and it continues to grow. Several Obama backed green companies have gone down the tubes since then. One of the biggest ones since was Ecotality. Fisker’s cars are catching on fire. His solar auction in Colorado bombed. The Institute for Energy Research determined

But the data are nonetheless revealing: for the over $26 billion committed since 2009, DOE Section 1703 and 1705 loan guarantees have created only 2,298 permanent jobs – that’s $11.45 million per job.

Meanwhile, he won’t approve the full Keystone XL pipeline. They’re lollygagging on fracking and drilling leases. He sends his dog on a separate plan for vacations.

*Obama’s “carbon footprint” is estimated at 41K metric tons. The average American’s is around 19 metric tons. The average for the world is 4 metric tons.

    …..
    “And while our carbon emissions have been dropping, our economy has been growing.

    This guy was voted President? This guy was a professor, at Harvard? And he has no clue what an economy is, or what it is supposed to do. He sees a downturned, depressed economy as “growing”? he sees MASSIVE unemployment, MASSIVE number of people on welfare as a growing economy? This dude is a complete idiot.

    “Between more clean energy, and less wasted energy, our emissions of dangerous carbon pollution are actually falling.

    There is more clean energy despite your efforts to stop energy production, you blithering idiot of a SCOAMF!! And the emissions fell because our economy collapsed and the price and supply of natural gas fell and increased, respectively.

    Our businesses have created 7.8 million new jobs in the past 44 months.

    bwwaaaahhahahahahaaa. Dude really likes to brazenly lie, doesn’t he? Do you think he was thinking of unemployment applications as “people requesting work from gov’t”?

    For another FAIL, his majesty’s attorney’s general has been found in felony and civil contempt. Holder now faces an impeachment bill.

    The TARP and stimulus funding are an even greater failure. You can’t pull money out of the economy, from our children and grandchildren’s future and expect it to spark an economic boom.

    Wouldn’t you expect the President of the United States of American to have a large carbon footprint?

    Should the President of the United States travel by commercial jetliner, or better yet drive to meetings, or take low energy ships overseas? Should the President of the United States have all his meetings by gotomeeting.com?

    Do you recommend we shut down the White House?

    The far right is pathetic.

    If he is going to FORCE other people to do so, then YES!

    he is in no way better than we are. He is not given a “pass” for his actions. Despite him currently being given a pass for his illegalities, lies, misstatements, and rampant ignorance.
