"And how about that handshake? That was about as goofy as Obama's new energy plan."
What is wrong with this guy? Is he trying to kill us economically? Has he not done the math? He has that goofy guy as his Energy Czar. And that egghead should know better. Now he is up in Canada, trying to sell this new whiz kid, as well as the President of Mexico, on his hair brained idea. But what does Obama care? After this term ends, Obama is on easy street. He will never, ever have to pay an electric bill again - so long as he lives.
And how about that handshake once he got to Canada? That was about as goofy as his new energy plan. 50% of our electricity coming from renewable energy by 2025? Are you kidding me Pyle? There is no way on this green Earth that is going to happen!
If Obama would look to Great Britain, he would see wind energy cost twice as much as coal. In Germany and Denmark, people are now paying a King's ransom for energy because their leaders drank the renewable kool aid.
Here is the long and the short of it. I learned this while working on technology programs back in the day. Until we come up with a "go to market" capacitor, this is nothing but a fool's errand.
Solar works well when the sun shines. Wind works just "okay" when the wind blows. On a still night, you are screwed for power. Capacitors will store that extra electricity when the sun is not shining and the wind is not blowing. But until the capacitor technology catches up with current demand and pricing, we will still need coal, natural gas or nuclear.
So what about Mexico? The land where it can be blistering hot in the summer time? Where many of the people are not of means? Will this agreement make them pay double on their electric bill also? Please, give me a break. That ain't gonna happen.
So I will tell you what is going to happen. Obama will promise Mexico and Canada "help from the USA" if they cannot cut make it with these new, expensive electric bills. And Hillary (should she be our next President), will also promise the minions in America that she will help with them with their electric bills also. You know - kind of like food stamps. And the money to pay for this? Heck, put it on the card!
So here you have it. Our future. Obama has already lowered our standard of living by a decade or so. Hillary will put us back to the 1950's. As we would say in the Navy, we are screwed, blued and tattooed. All for a myth about climate change. We are on a fool's errand.
