DOE Official says the price for Electric Power to rise …”70-80%”

Department of Energy Official testifies that due to the new Clean-Coal policies, there would be…“something like a 70 to 80 percent increase on the wholesale price of electricity.”

From the Energy & Commerce Committee’s Website:

February 11, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC – At today’s House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing on the Department of Energy’s clean coal programs, DOE Deputy Assistant Secretary for Clean Coal Dr. S. Julio Friedmann testified that carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies could drastically increase energy costs. Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) questioned how much CCS technologies could add to the cost of electricity, and Friedmann expressed that for first generation technologies, there would be “something like a 70 to 80 percent increase on the wholesale price of electricity.” He added, “It is in fact a substantial percentage increase in the cost of electricity, but in part, that’s because the current price of coal is so low.

The Most Important Problem?

What you hear from some Politicians, interests groups, and illegal immigrant activists:

….“Americans are most concerned about immigration reform and they want it now!”….

Ummm.  No.

Those same Politicians, interests groups, and supporters of illegal immigrants won’t tell you is that immigration reform is low on the list of priorities for Americans.

Looks like those Politician’s need to have look in the mirror.

Dissatisfaction and distrust with the Government remains the top problem.

Movies and the Benefit of the Doubt

Speaking of Hollywood celebrities…

The revived accusations of child molestation against Woody Allen are very disturbing, but Woody cannot be convicted without a trial – which is not likely to occur.

What is curious about these recent allegations is that there is a documentary film being released in March called “Anita” about the life of Anita Hill and the accusations that were made against Supreme Court Justice Clarence back in 1991.

The movie is from Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, writer and producer Freida Mock who lionizes Anita Hill.    The film is described as …

…“bringing sexual politics into the national consciousness and fueling 20 years of international debate on the issues.”

So many are willing to give Anita the benefit of the doubt while trashing Clarence Thomas, but no-one seems to be willing to give the 7 year-old the benefit of the doubt while instead idolizing Woody.

 

 

Where is the “Senator’s Wife”?

Movie mogul and film producer Harvey Weinstein is making a movie that in his words will make the NRA, “wish they weren’t alive”.

The movie is called “The Senator’s Wife” and is to star Meryl Streep in a role that is to target the NRA.

We are standing by, waiting to buy tickets.
