Power By Kite

 

Underwater kites that bear an uncanny  resemblance to the Starship Enterprise could soon be supplying power to homes  across the world, an American researcher claims.

David Olinger of Worcester Polytechnic  Institute says underwater currents could produce power comparable to multiple  nuclear stations – if engineers can work out how to harness it.

His idea is to use large kites with rigid  wings underwater.

Global Warming…Not

We’re Still Being Screwed Even Though ‘Global Warming’ Stopped 15 Years Ago

by:

The chart below is what global warming looks like folks. Non-existent for the last 15+ years. Zero. Nada. Zilch. (Before that, in the ’70′s, it was all about the “Coming Ice Age” and where did that go?) All the while the developing world has been cranking up carbon use for manufacturing.

And in the meantime? We have energy starvation policies stuffed down our throats. And a President, in the debate, going on and on about “Green Jobs,” which are either non-existent also…or are causing bankruptcy eruptions all over the place. Not to mention the dire straights he is putting people in with regard to the energy they need to survive.

Excuse the unladylike word in my title, but the entire Al Gorebasm insanity is causing nothing but draconian, opportunistic, tyrannical thievery and controls over our very daily lives to the point of stark raving global madness.

You have been sold down the proverbial river. Sent over the cliff. Robbed blind. And screwed…totally. Americans are supposed to be smarter than this. I want to believe Americans are smarter than this. But every day, in America, bureaucrats, planners, non-profits, corporations, and politicians are spending their time, and energy, and your money, to capture you…not carbon, but you…..into their schemes of control. None of that has one whit to do with some conjured up fiction that you are causing the global temperatures to rise. You aren’t. You never did. But they won’t let a little thing like the truth stop them from their central control of your energy use.

Some food for thought:

“Industries are already leaving Germany, and more will soon follow. The loss of energy and jobs will damage the German economy almost as much as the exploding cost of new infrastructure required to deal with the intermittent unreliables. And the cost — THE COST!!! Hundreds of thousands of lower class workers in Germany already cannot afford to pay their skyrocketing power bills. That number will only grow larger.”

From the Telegraph – UK

“The shift to renewable energy is also taking a toll on family budgets. On Monday Germany’s electrical grid operators announced that a special tax levied on consumers to finance subsidies for green energy would increase by almost 50 per cent.”

The EU is going straight down the road to serfdom….again, I might add. (Note Spain’s 17%+ unemployment after converting to a “Green” economy. Throw in a little Greece, Italy, and the rest…and what do you have?) How many times in history have European nations been sucked into the central planning models of either Monarchs or Dictators. I thought we fought and won a revolution to get out of that mold of ignorance.

Townhall Finance asks,

“Remember last summer- and the summer before that, and the summer before that- when droughts and tornadoes were pinned to global warming by a compliant media? Or when we were told that 100 million people would die in the next twenty minutes, or twenty years- is there really a difference?- because of global warming? And that of course women and children would bear the brunt of those deaths? Or last year when we were told about the wave of Polar Bear cannibals terrorizing the animal kingdom in the great white north?”

Too bad Candy Crowley never got to the Global Warming issue in the debate. Too bad….
If Romney and Ryan have the facts on this, we might be saved from the economic devastation that Europe is facing right now. God bless them both.

No…Not That Button…Push the Other One!

You can’t make this stuff up folks. Boy would I have loved to be there when this happened.

North Carolina is moving forward to legalize hydraulic fracturing — commonly called fracking — after an accidental vote by Democratic state Rep. Becky Carney overrode Democratic Gov. Bev Perdue’s veto on Monday.

Perdue had attempted to veto a Senate bill passed to allow the natural-gas extraction technique in her state, WRAL reported.

The vote was 72-47, with Carney’s accident providing the final vote necessary for the override.

Carney has voted against hydraulic fracturing in the past, and said she spent the day lobbying other Democrats to uphold the veto.

When the vote was taking place, House members had to push either a green button to override the bill or a red button to sustain the veto.

Carney pushed the wrong button. Moments later, her voice was heard on her microphone, saying, “Oh my gosh. I pushed green.” (I’m sure she was just thinking, “Eco Friendly” thoughts, by pushing the green button).

Republicans blocked Carney’s attempt to change her vote, since House rules in North Carolina don’t allow members to correct mistaken votes when the change would affect the bill’s passage.

Big Fracking Lie!

The Associated Press defines hydraulic fracturing as “a technique used by the energy industry to extract oil and gas from rock by injecting high-pressure mixtures of water, sand or gravel and chemicals.”

Before the technology used in the technique was advanced in the 1990s, extracting that oil

 and natural gas was not economically viable.

While proponents point to job creation, affordable energy and increased energy independence made possible by the technique, opponents say the chemicals used in the process could potentially hurt the environment, particularly drinking water (which has been proven to be a fabrication).

“I feel rotten, and I feel tired,” Carney told WRAL, “And I feel that mistakes are made constantly when people are tired.”

The Purposeful Ruination of America

As has been stated many times in the past; The United States can not be defeated by any military or opposing force outside its borders. It must be self-inflicted from within its own borders by its own people.
