Fatal blow to GNEP?
The US Department of Energy is cancelling the wide-ranging environmental analysis of the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) project. Its decision follows a change in government policy on commercial reprocessing.
The proposed GNEP program, which was part of President George Bush's Advanced Energy Initiative, is intended to support a safe, secure and sustainable expansion of nuclear energy, both domestically and internationally. Domestically, the GNEP program would promote technologies that support economic, sustained production of nuclear-generated electricity, while reducing the impacts associated with used nuclear fuel disposal and reducing proliferation risks.

House passes major energy-climate bill
In a triumph for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House narrowly passed sweeping legislation Friday that calls for the nation's first limits on pollution linked to global warming and aims to usher in a new era of cleaner, yet more costly energy.
The vote was 219-212, capping months of negotiations and days of intense bargaining among Democrats. Republicans were overwhelmingly against the measure, arguing it would destroy jobs in the midst of a recession while burdening consumers with a new tax in the form of higher energy costs.

"Since the Waxman-Markey bill left the Energy and Commerce committee, yet another fleet of industry lobbysists has weakened the bill even more, and further widened the gap between what Waxman-Markey does and what science demands. As a result, Greenpeace opposes this bill in its current form. We are calling upon Congress to vote against this bill unless substantial measures are taken to strengthen it. Despite President Obama’s assurance that he would enact strong, science-based legislation, we are now watching him put his full support behind a bill that chooses politics over science, elevates industry interests over national interest, and shows the significant limitations of what this Congress believes is possible.

CBO Grossly Underestimates Costs of Cap and Trade
Overall, there are a number of basic problems with CBO’s analysis:
• Their allowance cost numbers don’t add up. They say the allowance price will be $28. Since there are 5.056 billion tons of CO2 equivalent in the cap that year, that implies a $141 billion gross cost. They list 91.4 (see table one). In the CBO’s June 5 analysis of Waxman-Markey, they projected allowance revenues of $119.7 billion, 129.7 billion, $136 billion, $145.6 billion, and $152.9 billion for the years 2015 to 2019. It’s hard to believe that the next number in that series would be $91.4 billion.

Gross Misuse of Science to Achieve a Political End
Wider and More Pervasive Damage
Media focuses on the Obama administration policies that put the entire economy in jeopardy through massive and growing debt. It involves the complete illogic of claiming you can reduce debt by increasing debt; what I have called short term gain for long-term pain. It also means increase in government control. However, there are many legislative actions sliding through almost unnoticed, based on equally false logic and information that are threats to freedom through increased government control and economically damaging.

Reducing U.S. emissions merely puts American firms at a disadvantage to their foreign competitors
"Cap-and-trade" sounds fabulous: those who emit carbon dioxide will have to obtain permits for their emissions. If they are able to reduce emissions cheaply, they will cut their emissions, enabling them to sell the permits they don’t need to those who can’t cut emissions as cheaply.
Thus, the efficient are rewarded, the environment saved.
But once you read the fine print, cap-and-trade doesn’t look as good.

Obama’s new global warming emission rules likely to put U.S. Automakers in deep Freeze
The new controls to limit so-called global warming gasses will cost GM, Ford and Chrysler additional billions of dollars — money that could be better spent on developing new, more fuel efficient cars and improving automotive safety.
Besides the new mandates will do nothing to stop global warming if, as the greens and their allies say, it really is caused by man-made fumes of carbon dioxide.

Cap-and-trade is the temple of doom.
It would lock in disasters for our children and grandchildren. Why do people continue to worship a disastrous approach? Its fecklessness was proven by the Kyoto Protocol. It took a decade to implement the treaty, as countries extracted concessions that weakened even mild goals. Most countries that claim to have met their obligations actually increased their emissions. Others found that even modest reductions of emissions were inconvenient, and thus they simply ignored their goals.
Why is this cap-and-trade temple of doom worshipped? The 648 page cap-and-trade monstrosity that is being foisted on the U.S. Congress provides the answer. Not a single Congressperson has read it. They don't need to they just need to add more paragraphs to support their own special interests. By the way, the Congress people do not write most of those paragraphs they are "suggested" by people in alligator shoes.

Sunspot Numbers and Weather
Early records of sunspots indicate that the Sun went through a period of inactivity in the late 17th century. Very few sunspots were seen on the Sun from about 1645 to 1715 (38 kb JPEG image). Although the observations were not as extensive as in later years, the Sun was in fact well observed during this time and this lack of sunspots is well documented. This period of solar inactivity also corresponds to a climatic period called the "Little Ice Age" when rivers that are normally ice-free froze and snow fields remained year-round at lower altitudes. There is evidence that the Sun has had similar periods of inactivity in the more distant past. The connection between solar activity and terrestrial climate is an area of on-going research.

Venezuela Chavez says "Comrade" Obama more left-wing
CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday that he and Cuban ally Fidel Castro risk being more conservative than U.S. President Barack Obama as Washington prepares to take control of General Motors Corp.
During one of Chavez's customary lectures on the "curse" of capitalism and the bonanzas of socialism, the Venezuelan leader made reference to GM's bankruptcy filing, which is expected to give the U.S. government a 60 percent stake in the 100-year-old former symbol of American might.
"Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right," Chavez joked on a live television broadcast.
During a decade in government, Chavez has nationalized most of Venezuela's key economic sectors, including multibillion dollar oil projects, often via joint ventures with the private sector that give the state a 60 percent controlling stake.
Obama has vowed to quickly sell off General Motors once the auto giant is back on its feet, but the government will initially control the company after a $30 billion injection of taxpayer funds.
Chavez, a vehement critic of the U.S. "empire," has toned down his rhetoric since Obama took office in January and the two men shook hands during a summit in Trinidad and Tobago in April.

It's turning out that the biggest problem with carbon taxes is political reality. Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has just announced he will delay implementing his trademark cap-and-trade emissions trading proposal until at least 2011. Mr. Rudd's March proposal would have imposed total carbon permit costs (taxes) of 11.5 billion Australian dollars (US$8.5 billion) in the first two years, starting in 2010. This would have increased consumer prices by about 1.1% and shaved 0.1% off annual GDP growth until at least 2050, according to Australia's Treasury. Support has fallen among business groups and individuals who earlier professed enthusiasm for Aussie cap and trade. Green gains were negligible; Australia accounts for only 1.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Arctic sea ice extent declined quite slowly in April;
as a result, total ice extent is now close to the mean extent for the reference period (1979 to 2000). The thin spring ice cover nevertheless remains vulnerable to summer melt.
For the past few years, Arctic sea ice extent for most months has been more than two standard deviations below the 1979 to 2000 mean, particularly in summer. Two standard deviations provide an estimate of the expected range of natural variability. Because of cooler than average temperatures, Arctic sea ice extent at the end of April 2009 was within the expected range of natural variability.

In addition to carbon dioxide, a product of burning fossil fuels, the EPA finding covers five other emissions that scientists believe are warming the earth when they concentrate in the atmosphere: Methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6).

Today, President Barack Obama announced the availability of $2.4 billion in funding to put American ingenuity and America's manufacturers to work producing next generation Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles and the advanced battery components that will make these vehicles run. The initiative will create tens of thousands of U.S. jobs and help us end our addiction to foreign oil. Americans who decide to purchase these Plug-in Hybrid vehicles can claim a tax credit of up to $7,500.

It seems that the obviously arrogant Mr. Gao, and the communist nation that he represents, (China) have decided that we, consumers, should bear the brunt of the expense for that nation's carbon emission load. The logic used to back this assertion, while certainly passing as logic, serves as nothing more than a spotlight on the fundamentally flawed "cap and trade" carbon emissions boondoggle that is slowly unfolding.

Prepared text of Obama's address to Congress
"we will double this nation's supply of renewable energy in the next three years"
"We will soon lay down thousands of miles of power lines that can carry new energy to cities and towns across this country."
"But to truly transform our economy, protect our security and save our planet from the ravages of climate change, we need to ultimately make clean, renewable energy the profitable kind of energy. So I ask this Congress to send me legislation that places a market-based cap on carbon pollution and drives the production of more renewable energy in America. And to support that innovation, we will invest fifteen billion dollars a year to develop technologies like wind power and solar power, advanced biofuels, clean coal and more fuel-efficient cars and trucks built right here in America."

Activists push to reinstate drilling ban
Hearing pits backers, foes of ocean oil
By H. Josef Hebert Associated Press
Washington —- Environmental advocates on Wednesday urged Congress to reinstate a broad moratorium on offshore oil drilling, but Rep. Nick Rahall (D-W.Va.) said "the ship may have already sailed."
Rahall, chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said the political reality is that the broad moratorium across 85 percent of the country’s Outer Continental Shelf —- lifted by Congress last fall - is unlikely to be reimposed.

Feds to halt coastal drilling plan
By Stacy Shelton
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar is putting the brakes on a Bush administration plan to open the Atlantic and Pacific coasts —- including Georgia’s —- to oil and natural gas drilling, while promising a "new way forward" for offshore wind projects.
Salazar on Tuesday criticized the Bush administration’s "drill-only approach," saying the U.S. needs a comprehensive energy plan that considers all the potential resources in the oceans.
"I intend to do what the prior administration failed to do … incorporate the great potential for wind, wave and ocean tides," Salazar said.

HAVANA: Cuba has begun erecting its first independently operated horizontal oil drilling rig in shallow waters off the north coast, state media reported Wednesday.
Cuban engineers trained in Canada are drilling the well near the coastal town of Boca de Camarioca, close to the beach resort of Varadero in Matanzas province, 95 miles (150 kilometers) east of Havana.
Mainland China has eleven nuclear power reactors in commercial operation, seven under construction, and ten more about to start construction.
Additional reactors are planned, including some of the world's most advanced, to give a sixfold increase in nuclear capacity to at least 50 GWe or possibly to 60 GWe by 2020 and then a further three to fourfold increase to 120-160 GWe by 2030.

Nuclear Firms Power Up - Barron's SA Editor
President-elect Barack Obama has created a heady agenda for advancing clean energy and nuclear power giants are set to gain. Barron's says investors should keep an eye on key players like Exelon and Entergy.
As the biggest producers of energy that doesn't emit any greenhouse gases, nuclear plants are entering a 'renaissance,' set to rise handsomely from Obama's 10-year $150B clean energy plan. Companies are applying to build new plants, which could take year, but in the meantime, existing nuclear plants look pretty good. Their stocks are cheap and they boast plenty of competitive advantages, including lower costs than coal-fired rivals.

NASA: Water Vapor Confirmed as Major Player in Climate Change
Water vapor is known to be Earth's most abundant greenhouse gas, but the extent of its contribution to global warming has been debated. Using recent NASA satellite data, researchers have estimated more precisely than ever the heat-trapping effect of water in the air, validating the role of the gas as a critical component of climate change. . . .
"This study confirms that what was predicted by the models is really happening in the atmosphere," said Eric Fetzer, an atmospheric scientist who works with AIRS data at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. "Water vapor is the big player in the atmosphere as far as climate is concerned."
Real Clear Government.
Where is the transparency we were promised?
In March of 2009 The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) drafted a 98-page report that warned against making hasty "decisions based on a scientific hypothesis that does not appear to explain most of the available data."
March 17, 2009. Al McGartland, an EPA official, sent an e-mail message to the authors stating "The administrator and the administration has decided to move forward... and your comments do not help the legal or policy case for this decision."
April 17, 2009. The EPA issued an endangerment finding, saying that global warming poses a serious threat to public health and safety. Much of the findings were based on information gathered by other agencies as well as on the IPCC Plenary reports written in 2007.
June 26, 2009. The Competitive Enterprise Institute released the draft of the "internal study on climate science which was suppressed by the Environmental Protection Agency."

Energy Tax Facts
The Markey-Waxman "Cap-and-trade" Energy Tax bill, in the current form being considered by the House Energy and Commerce committee, would have the following catastrophic effects by 2035:
1. Reduce aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) by $9.6 trillion annually;
2. Destroy 1,105,000 American jobs per year on average, with peak years seeing unemployment rise by over 2,479,000 jobs;
3. Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation;
4. Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 74 percent;
5. Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent;
6. Raise an average family's annual energy bill by $1,500 annually; and
7. Increase inflation-adjusted federal debt by 26 percent, or $29,150 additional federal debt per person, again after adjusting for inflation.

Please tax us!
According to the latest energy bill (H.R.2454) the government intends to set up a system to control carbon emission through "Cap and trade".
Each year the government would issue your company (you) a permit to emit a fixed amount of carbon. You will not be allowed to exceed your permitted amount. If you reduce the amount of carbon you emit you will be allowed to sell the excess allowance you have received. If exceed your allowance, you will be able to buy an additional allowance from the companies who have cut down their emission. You will also be able to buy allowances from companies that specialize in carbon reduction.
A government department will measure and track your carbon emission as well as control your allowances all trades.
An alternative to "cap and trade" is the carbon tax. You are taxed on the amount of carbon you emit. The government would still have to measure the pollution produced and tax accordingly.
Please make it simple and clear! Tax all fuels. If we use more fuel we emit more carbon and pay more. If we become more efficient we use less fuel and pay less, The system is already in place. You (The government) can start collecting the additional tax almost immediately and we (the taxpayers) will see where the money is spent.

EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions and the way you live under the Clean Air Act..
Opinion of the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to the original decision (April 2007)
I believe the ANPR demonstrates the Clean Air Act, an outdated law originally
enacted to control regional pollutants that cause direct health effects, is ill-suited for the
task of regulating global greenhouse gases. Based on the analysis to date, pursuing this
course of action would inevitably result in a very complicated, time-consuming and,
likely, convoluted set of regulations. These rules would largely pre-empt or overlay existing programs that help control greenhouse gas emissions and would be relatively
ineffective at reducing greenhouse gas concentrations given the potentially damaging
effect on jobs and the U.S. economy.
EPA's analyses leading up to this ANPR have increasingly raised questions of
such importance that the scope of the agency's task has continued to expand. For
instance, it has become clear that if EPA were to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from
motor vehicles under the Clean Air Act, then regulation of smaller stationary sources that
also emit GHGs - such as apartment buildings, large homes, schools, and hospitals -
could also be triggered. One point is clear: the potential regulation of greenhouse gases
under any portion of the Clean Air Act could result in an unprecedented expansion of
EPA authority that would have a profound effect on virtually every sector of the economy
and touch every household in the land.

Where do we get the electricity from? Windmills will not drive our factories, offices, homes, trucks and cars!
No Energy = No Jobs = No Recovery
• Wind and solar are expensive sources of power. In addition, they require a costly new power grid and backup generators.
• Production of bio-fuels consumes energy.
• Coal power is cheap but clean coal plants are 50% less efficient. China is the largest consumer of coal in the world and are building, on average, one coal-fired power plant per week. It has one clean coal plant.
• Nuclear power is clean and proven. China has seven nuclear power reactors under construction, and ten more about to start construction. All to be operational in 10 years. The US has 1 reactor under construction. If we want to compete with China and reduce our dependence on oil, we must have nuclear power.
• Our climate has changed and will continue to change. Water vapor is a significant greenhouse gas. Carbon is not. A cap (tax) on carbon emission would be an impossible burden on industry and in turn on all consumers.

Al Gore - November 9, 2008
"Thirty-five years ago this past week, President Richard Nixon created Project Independence, which set a national goal that, within seven years, the United States would develop "the potential to meet our own energy needs without depending on any foreign energy sources." . . . . Yet today, after all six of the presidents succeeding Nixon repeated some version of his goal, our dependence has doubled from one-third to nearly two-thirds - and many feel that global oil production is at or near its peak."
Al Gore served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1977 to 1985, the U. S. Senate from 1985 to 1993 and as Vice President from 1993 to 2001. He did nothing about energy for 24 years!
Promise them what they want and they will vote for you.
Student groups and environmentalists want a green economy. They are determined to
"pull our nation out of its fossil fuel addiction, and declaring an end to coal and nuclear development"
Exactly what Obama promised,
Time to stop playing games.
With banks failing and billions spent on saving the economy we don't have time or money to test and subsidize windmills and other unproven forms of energy. The ethanol program proved to be an expensive failure. We can and should provide tax breaks as we did with other energy providers.
We must conserve like never before.
We have to drill for oil and gas here and as we do drastically reduce our imports. We cannot afford to continue sending 700 billion dollars and millions of jobs overseas.
We have to build safe and reliable nuclear power plants now. France can do it and so can we.
We must re-examine global warming. We have to be sure that reducing carbon will make a difference before we devote trillions of dollars and fail to halt climate change.
Creating 5 million green jobs sounds good and exporting green technology is a great idea but when you export the technology the jobs go with it.
For over thirty years Democrats have stopped every attempt to increase domestic energy production. It's time to get to work.

Barack Obama’s Plan for America
Foreign Oil - America’s 20-million-barrel-a-day oil habit costs our economy $1.4 billion a day, and $500 billion in 2006
alone. Every single hour, we spend $41 million on foreign oil. *
Climate Change - As a result of climate change, glaciers are melting faster; the polar ice caps are shrinking; trees are blooming
earlier; more people are dying in heat waves; species are migrating, and eventually many will become extinct. **
* Thanks to Democrats who killed all energy plans since 1977.
** We did not cause climate change and we will not stop it.

Oil and Security
During 2006 the United States consumed 20.7 million barrels (20.7 MMbd) of petroleum products per day.
At the same time the US produced about 5.1 million barrels per day (5.1 MMbd) and imported about 15.6 million barrels per day (15.6 MMbd)
Petroleum products were imported from:
Canada - 17.2%
Mexico - 12.4%
Saudi Arabia - 10.7%
Venezuela - 10.4%
Nigeria - 8.1%
To secure our oil supply we have to reduce imports by about 50% or close to 8 million barrels per day.
There is no alternate fuel for airplanes, trucks and factories. We will be uing some oil for decades.
We can and must use our own!

End of Global Warming?
David Evans, July 18, 2008
1. The greenhouse signature is missing.
2. There is no evidence to support the idea that carbon emissions cause significant global warming. None.
3. The satellites that measure the world's temperature all say that the warming trend ended in 2001, and that the temperature has dropped about 0.6C in the past year (to the temperature of 1980
4. The new ice cores show that in the past six global warmings over the past half a million years, the temperature rises occurred on average 800 years before the accompanying rise in atmospheric carbon. Which says something important about which was cause and which was effect.
Dr David Evans worked for the Australian Greenhouse Office from 1999 to 2005, building the carbon accounting model that Australia uses to track carbon in its biosphere for the purposes of the Kyoto Protocol. He is a mathematician and engineer, with six university degrees including a PhD from Stanford University.

There is no significant man made global warming. There has not been any in the past, there is none now and there is no reason to fear any in the future. The climate of Earth is changing. It has always changed. But mankind's activities have not overwhelmed or significantly modified the natural forces.
