"The consequences of continuing this pattern of energy use are surely devastating both to the atmosphere and the fresh water system, for us and especially for our children and their grandchildren." -- Chatham University biologist Patricia DeMarco.IT'S FOR THE CHILDREN!!!!
Could she possibly have added any more ecotard, liberal, zero-sum, misinformed hand wringing? I'll wager she thought it was "devastating" when the Chatham board voted in the spring to go co-ed in an effort to not go broke. Now she has to deal with all that male ickiness, assuming any males actually apply. But I digress.
As some of you may remember, the EPA cut off public comment in 2009 when it was ostensibly formulating these rules, and deleted all comments calling their farmed-out "science" into question.
So while it's gratifying to see some people rally for common sense, it doesn't matter to the elite billionaires funding the ecotard annihilation of the poor, sick and old, and then the rest of us--we spoil the view from the veranda, don't you know--nor does it matter to their bought-and-paid-for minions in the EPA.
When I started my first blog, Soylent Green, the tag line read, "Just what you need when you're freezing in the dark."
After my exile to Siberia, I changed it to reflect the current state of affairs. In the last 13 years this government has systematically moved to take away our energy, food and shelter. So, is throwing thousands of people out of work and quintupling the energy costs for millions going to stop them? No. It's a feature, not a bug.
