Alpha Natural just announced today layoffs in WV that will eliminate 1000 jobs

obamas-failed-energy-policiesAlpha Natural just announced today layoffs in West Virginia that will eliminate 1,000 jobs.  That’s right 1000 jobs!!!  These are mining jobs with average pay of $65,000 per year.  If we could create 1000 jobs in WV over the next year (which we can’t) they would pay somewhere around $35,000 per year.

For every 1 job lost we need 2 created to keep the tax base and contribution to the economy the same. Losing high paying jobs and replacing them with low paying jobs is the hallmark of the Obama administration. That’s why the economy remains in a rut and can’t gain footing and extract itself.   A friend traveled to 12 states meeting with clients and new clients and many have new jobs and the story is the same in all 12 states.

“Yes I’ve found a new job but I make less money than I did in 2008.”

He met with a union president who was awarded social security disability and he is retiring and no longer looking for employment.   Between 2004-2008 he made over $100,000 a year installing clean coal technology in power plants. Since Obama was elected he’s been unemployed the majority of the time, but this is his best year of earnings, since 2008 which was under $60,000.  A 40% pay cut from the Bush years.

According to CNBC, “Jobs growth in the U.S. since the 2008 recession has been undermined by lower wages, with workers earning an average 23 percent less than earnings from jobs which were lost, a report by an organization representing U.S. cities said on Monday.”  The average pay of lost jobs in 2008 was $61,337 and the average salary of replacement jobs in 2014 is $47,181 nationwide

When you calculate the increased spending of 6 years of inflation and 23% less salary, the lagging economy makes sense. That’s why the Obama administration keeps vilifying the wage gap and insists we’re all unpatriotic if we don’t support raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

This President doesn’t care about working Americans, he cares about non-working Americans. If you’re on welfare you get a free cell phone, if you work, you’re treated with contempt.

GOOD NEWS! Antarctic Sea Ice Hit 35-year Record High

tailpipeWe need to keep lowering CO2 emissions and increasing our efforts to green the planet practically, without big government destroying jobs and hurting people’s quality of life, not by the Obama administration’s EPA manufacturing ridiculously high energy prices.

Consider the source when you listen to MSM saying scientists report this and that and think about the motivation. If it is feel good, sensational, it’s news.

The important context here is “baffling scientists” these are the operative words…

According to WAPO Antarctic sea ice hit 35-year record high Saturday.  This is GOOD news!

EPA regulations will not allow new coal-fired plants to open without CCS which is cost-prohibitive.  Maybe the $500M in R&D will produce a more economical solution.  Then there’s the remote possibility common sense will prevail, although common sense doesn’t really play well in the corrupt climate in DC.

Lomborg is making sense and making some waves…  I have been doing a lot of reading on climate change, books on climate change from both sides of the aisle and I’m still not convinced  CO2 emissions are the cause of climate change.

From the former head of Greenpeace…

Certainly I’m not going to put my mouth around a tail pipe and breathe deeply, but I think we’ve come a long way to reduce pollution… so I don’t see the need for such draconian measures.  Obama spent a billion dollars bailing out the automakers with no provisions for clean air.  He’s destroying the coal industry who didn’t require a bailout.  Why do auto emissions get a free pass from this administration?

 

 

 

Climate Disruption? Let Cooler Heads Prevail!

 

Lessons in climate changeGlobal warming a.k.a., climate change will now be proclaimed “climate disruption?!” with extreme prejudice from a global warming zealot and White House Science advisor John Holdren .

Apparently there are more than a few scientists who strongly disagree with Holdren as published in a NCA rebuttal –  Scientists Respond to the Obama Administration’s National Climate Assessment –  2014.

I can acknowledge there are two sides to the issue of CO2 emissions but in any case I cannot defend the tremendous government waste of taxpayer money, the billions in taxpayer dollars wasted on greentech failures.  Nor the political rhetoric, the ignorance or the hateful talk and actions from either side.

Take CO2 emissions out of the equation we should be proud we, as a society, have done a tremendous job reducing pollution and carbon emissions.  On the flip side, we all know we can do a better job to reduce emissions and pollution.

On the one hand, you’re not going to want to suck on the tailpipe of a full-sized SUV, so you know carbon emissions contribute to pollution,6 of whom are cities in CA, like the smog in L.A. and other cities, but so does their location.  Certainly, I would rather run 5 miles in the Tampa Bay area vs. South L.A. where your lungs will burn.  So reducing carbon emissions is necessary in highly populated areas.

Cooler heads will not prevail without greater awareness, more education and a willingness to listen to both sides of the debate, all which is sorely needed.  It is difficult to have that debate on climate change when the POTUS says the debate on climate change is over, the Senate majority, the mainstream media and Hollywood go to great lengths to castrate anyone who they perceive to be a climate change denier.

The poorest 30% of  the US population spend 17% of their after tax income on gasoline while politicians and climate change proponents continue to point to perceived success stories of wind farms and solar, that fly in the face of sound economic reason.  The EPA and their regulations are systematically and progressively hurting the people and the economy which depend on fossil fuels and related jobs.  Case in point, the Keystone Pipeline and the War on Coal .  Working middle class Americans depend on cheap energy to commute to work and heat their homes during the winter months.

You can look to polar opposites on climate change for highly controversial opinions from both Dr. Tim Ball in his book, A History of the Disastrous Global Warming Hoax and to  Greenpeace activist Paul Gilding in his book The Great Disruption, which is a rambling read that addresses his theories on global warming and overpopulation.  The idea that the “earth is full” is and will be largely debunked.  Think Smaller, Faster, Lighter, Denser, Cheaper.  Calmer heads may prevail if you were to read and follow Bjorn Lomberg, in his book Cool It and his blog lomborg.com.

Lomborg, who’s position on climate change is not without controversy from the left, takes a more middle of the road, practical approach to reducing carbon emissions and pollution through innovation like driverless cars or this 19-Year-Old Develops Ocean Cleanup Array That Could Remove 7,250,000 Tons Of Plastic From the World’s Oceans.

Lomborg has more recently defended his position, which is to say radical climate change policies hurt the poor, in his book How Much Have Global Problems Cost the World serves as more of a source or reference on pollution and the economic impact on civilization over time.

There are many things everyday people can do to reduce pollution and carbon emissions although I personally prefer long lasting LED lighting over compact fluorescents.  It’s really too bad most people will simply form an opinion based on their politics, inundated by sensational news stories from the mainstream “if it bleeds it leads” media and Hollywood celebrities who have little to sacrifice when it comes to policies that affect them in their daily lives. It does affect the rest of us.  I recommend looking at all sides of the climate change debate. Let cooler heads prevail.

NOTE:  Many global warming advocates say there are no credible scientists who debate the existence of global warming.  Here is the list from the NCA Rebuttal referenced earlier in this blog:

Mathematical illiterates are celebrating New York City’s new 1.6 MW solar power project

We need a more practical and long term transition from coal fired electricity to natural gas. Solar and wind won’t cut it. The costs are too high and the production capacity is too low.

Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog

AFP reports:

On a rooftop in the Bronx far from the skyscrapers of Manhattan, 4,760 panels soak up the winter rays. Welcome to the solar power boom in New York state.

Robert Kline, director of commercial sales for the Ross Solar Group that installed the panels, is delighted.

“It is the largest (solar) installation in the history of New York City,” he tells AFP.

The 1.6-megawatt installation on the Jetro Cash and Carry has been proudly singled out by New York governor Andrew Cuomo as a prime example of a drive to haul the state into a new dawn.

I’m not disputing the claim that this is “the largest solar installation in the history of New York City.”

However, I am disputing the claim that his is a “boom” for solar power.

The Ravenswood Generating Station is one of many power plants that provides electricity for New York. It…

ROMNEY to OBAMA in 2012 Presidential debate: “…you don’t just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers…”

romney

Romney – click on Romney to hear video

Romney said i n the debate, “And in one year you provided $90 billion in breaks to the green energy world. Now, I like green energy as well, but that’s about 50 year’s worth of what oil and gas receives and you say Exxon Mobil, actually this $2.8 billion goes to small companies, to drilling operators and so forth. If we get the tax rate from 35% to 25%, why that $2.8 billion is on the table.  Of course it’s on the table. That’s probably not going to survive to get the rate down to 25% but don’t forget, you put $90 billion, like 50 years worth of breaks into solar and wind to solar and wind, to Solyndra and Fisker and Tesla and I had a friend who said you don’t just pick the winners and losers, you pick the losers. This is not the kind of policy you want to have to get America energy secure.

While the Obama Administration’s Eric Holder and the DOJ is investigating an illegal $20,000 contribution by Dinesh D’Souza, fierce critic of the President, who has been indicted the Justice Department, you might wonder why the DOJ doesn’t investigate how millions in green energy money got funneled back into Obama’s reelection campaign?

President Obama’s taxpayer-funded trillion-dollar spending spree –– spent over $90 billion earmarked for clean energy.

Harry Reid “led the passage of the $814 billion stimulus bill and worked to include the loan guarantee program to help finance clean-energy projects.

Now the Obama Administration Is Taking Another GO at the FAILED Program That Funded Solyndra.  This must be stopped!

Here is Obama’s GREENTECH FAIL list WHICH HAS LAID WASTE ON TAXPAYER DOLLARS!!!

37. NEW – With the news of another tragic FAIL, Abengoa which received a $1.4 billion loan guarantee in 2010 to build one of the world’s largest parabolic trough solar plants near Phoenix, Ariz.  The following year it received another $1.2 billion in loan guarantees to build another solar plant in California’s Mojave Desert.  The following year it received another $1.2 billion in loan guarantees to build another solar plant in California’s Mojave Desert.

36. NEW – Smith Electric Vehicles – Despite $32 million in federal stimulus funds and status as one of Obama’s favorite “green” companies, the firm has halted production, having built just 439 of the promised 510 vehicles.  Bright Automotive (electric delivery vans)Carbon Motors (clean diesel-powered police cars)Aptera Motors (three-wheeled electric cars)Coda Automotive (inexpensive electric sedans), all bankrupt or near bankruptcy, applied for Government funds but didn’t win the lottery.  Tesla Motors, on the other hand has met with growing success.

35. Ecotality, an electric car charger maker, who won a $99.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy four years ago filed for bankruptcy.

34.  GreenTech Automotive is owned by Capital Wealth Holdings, an investment company incorporated in the tax haven, the British Virgin Islands.  GreenTech president and Chinese businessman, Charles Wang, owns the investment company.  Wang is an expert on the EB-5 visa program and has coached other U.S. companies on how to effectively make use of it.  Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe is involved in electric car company.  The U.S. Securities and Exchange commission currently is investigating GreenTech’s use of the federal EB-5 visa-investor program, which raises funds from foreign nationals in exchange for U.S. green cards.

33. A $50-million loan previously award to Vehicle Production Group LLC (VPG)through the Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing loan program (ATVMP) has gone unpaid. VPG, a maker of compressed natural gas-powered wheelchair-accessible vans, shut its doors in May after running out of cash.

32. SoloPower, the startup pitched as the most innovative player in Oregon solar manufacturing, will suspend its Portland operations.  State officials, too, were working to get in touch with the company, which has received a $10 million loan and a $20 million tax credit.  It also is in line for a $197 million federal loan, meant to help fund later stages of growth.

31. Rentech Incorporated For most of its 33-year history, Rentech Inc. tried to make money on green fuel development. But like its plans to sell synthetic diesel to major airlines in 2009, those efforts never really left the ground.  Rentech received $23 million from the DOE for a Colorado refinery turn wood into fuel.

30. SunTech Power, a China owned solar company struggling from a downturn in photovoltaic solar panels, benefited from a combined $84 million in Energy Department tax credits.

29. SolarWorld, a German company received more than $100 million in state and local tax incentives – only to see companies like SolarWorld in Hillsboro and SoloPower in Portland struggle in the wake of fierce competition, especially from Chinese companies. Source: Oregon bet big on this emerging technology

28. VESTAS, A Danish wind turbine company whose subsidiaries received over $50 million in U.S. stimulus dollars. Vestas also reported a net loss of 62 million euros, or $83 million, for the second quarter, compared with a loss of 8 million euros in last year’s comparable period. Revenue declined to 1.2 billion euros, compared with 1.6 billion euros a year earlier.

27. COMPACT POWER Plant that received $150M in taxpayer money to make Volt batteries furloughs workers.

26. CH2M HILL, is embroiled in atime card fraud scheme that took place between 1999 and 2008 when CH2M was servicing a DOE contract worth $2.2 billion, and at the beginning of 2013, it was discovered that CH2M HILL Plateau Remediation Company (CHPRC) “provided inaccurate cost data to support a multi-billion-dollar federal nuclear waste cleanup contract, “reported the Washington Free Beacon. Despite their history of legal and workplace safety violations, in 2009 an additional $1.3 billion was awarded to a different CH2M subsidiary to go toward the Hanford cleanup.

Families will have less disposable income as they spend more to light and heat their homes, with seniors, families on fixed incomes and lower-income Americans being hit the hardest.

NOTE:  I agree much needs to be done (more practical examples abound, like passive shading) regarding pollution and the reduction of CO2 emissions but this post  is about pure politics, corruption and an abusive waste of taxpayer money.  I am not a climate change denier so don’t report me to the good professor.  I still do believe the jury is out on the all the reasons climate change advocates attribute to climate change.  Rather than panic and spend billions MORE of taxpayer dollars on failed Greentech technology, I believe in a pragmatic, limited government approach, such as that espoused by Bjørn Lomborg, author of The Skeptical Environmentalist and Cool It, to lower CO2 emissions.  I believe existing and new technology such as driverless cars will do much more to reduce emissions than government backed wind and solar.  Let the private sector do it’s job, which is to innovate, create jobs and grow the economy.  Let government get out of the way.

They Shuttered Two More Mines in Wayne County, WV. Congratulations Mr. President.

coal2Here is our “jobs” President speaking out about his War on Coal, “When I was asked earlier about the issue of coal…under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket…even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad, because I’m capping greenhouse gasses, coal power plants, natural gas…you name it…whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retro-fit their operations. That will cost money…they will pass that money on to the consumers.”

A few more interesting facts have come to light in the last few days concerning coal in WV. The EPA can cheer that they shuttered two more mines in Wayne County, WV November 5th, laying off another 250 miners. They’re certainly going to have a Merry Christmas.

Two years ago the WV state budget ran a $140 million surplus after balancing the budget. Last year WV swung to a $90 million dollar deficit and now 4 months into the new fiscal year WV is down $42 million dollars! Because of EPA rulings  and signing up to participate in ObamaCare WV is running a $10 million monthly deficit that’s growing! How will this have a happy ending? When you look at the remarkable change in just the last 30 months the fiscal change is incredible. WV is on track for a $140 million deficit this year after running a $140 million surplus just two years ago!! Move over Detroit here they come!

An interesting story regarding a high-ranking member of the iron workers union which you would suspect his story is common with all of his constituents. During the George Bush era he worked on various “clean coal” technologies at power plants in WV and Ohio and his pay year after year was well north of $100,000. Since the “Obama era” started in 2009 not only has he never made $100,000 annually again, he’s never made $50,000 in a year!

Half the time he’s been on unemployment collecting food stamps. The other half he’s traveled all over the country working for sub par wages on various “shovel ready” government stimulus jobs. He’s truly never made 1/2 of the wages he was earning just 5 years ago. Once again the irony of it all? He’s a life long democrat and voted for Obama in 2008 and 2012! This guy in the last three years has literally sold his car because he can’t afford the payment, taxes and insurance but still votes straight Democrat in all elections. He has to take a bus to the polls, yet he doesn’t see the connection.

Now I know where the expression “die-hard” comes from.  Liberals.

raked-over-coalObama’s War on Coal – You Need to Create Two Jobs for Every One Job Obama Eliminates

Excerpt – Who would hire a 50 year old with a high school education with only mining on his resume? Couldn’t they retire you ask? Many of the coal companies laid them off because they’re filing bankruptcy. Even those who were retired from a coal company had a federal judge uphold the coal company could cut their pensions by 70% and end their health care. In short, THESE PEOPLE ARE SCREWED!

Obama’s EPA and Their War on Coal – If You Can’t Compete You Cheat

coalminer-e1328803782694If you can’t compete, you cheat.  It’s clear the EPA is trying to shaft the coal industry.  Last year the state of WV balanced their budget and had a $140 million surplus. Today 12 months later they have a $90 million deficit. The reason is lost coal tax revenues. A negative swing of $230 million in just one year!

This next year will be much worse, WV will be lucky to survive. Many experts believe the state is the next Detroit because of EPA policies.

What does the EPA do to compete with coal?  They cheat.  The Obama administration poured over a billion dollars into alternative fuel technology’s like solar, which gave us the Solyndra debacle.  We flushed $535M of taxpayer money down the toilet and we are going to blow over a billion on wind power.

Caithness Corp.’s Shepherds Flat was awarded $1.3B from the Obama administration and $30M from the State of Oregon for wind power.  This project is highly suspect.  In a Politico article, it’s stated “Its developers gorged themselves on hundreds of millions of dollars from taxpayers for 45 jobs, and government officials were well aware it was over-subsidized.”

In the WSJ yesterday, “In announcing the EPA’s new carbon regulations, Administrator Gina McCarthy said that new power plants “can minimize their carbon emissions by taking advantage of modern technologies.” The fact is that the coal-based industry cannot realistically follow these rules without putting itself out of business.”

So the question I have for President Obama and the EPA is, “Why not subsidize clean coal?”

If foolish spending and subsidies for energy industries that cannot compete isn’t enough, the EPA will strangle the coal industry with new regulations.  U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) vows to fight destructive policies that harm America’s economy.

Senator Manchin, a stout Obama supporter until 2012, slammed President Obama’s proposal to address climate change, which imposes unreasonable restrictions that will have disastrous consequences for not only the coal industry, but also American jobs and the economy.

“The regulations the President wants to force on coal are not feasible. And if it’s not feasible, it’s not reasonable.” Senator Manchin said, in an interview with the Washington Post. “It’s clear now that the President has declared a war on coal. It’s simply unacceptable that one of the key elements of his climate change proposal places regulations on coal that are completely impossible to meet with existing technology.

“The fact is clear: our own Energy Department reports that our country will get 37 percent of our energy from coal until 2040. Removing coal from our energy mix will have disastrous consequences for our recovering economy. These policies punish American businesses by putting them at a competitive disadvantage with our global competitors. And those competitors burn seven-eighths of the world’s coal, and they’re not going to stop using coal any time soon.

“It is only common sense to use all our domestic resources, and that includes our coal. Let’s make sure that government works as our partner, not our adversary, to create a secure and affordable energy future, and let’s invest in technology which will have the ability to burn coal with almost zero emissions.”  

Obama doesn’t have to win any more elections so his views are much harsher since the 2012 election victory. Obama’s stance on coal in 2011 and the difference in 2012 are striking.   The 2 most recent years are the war on coal, of course we had growth from the bottom of the recession till 2011. The debate with the liberals has been, there are more jobs in the coal industry today than there were when Obama took office.  Tree huggers always use the number of jobs created from the depth of the recession and usually concentrate on job growth in 2011.Anybody who states there are more jobs in the coal industry today in spite of Obama’s EPA is truly drinking the Kool Aid.

While the Obama administration is subsidizing green energy with billions to create a few hundreds of jobs, he could help save thousands of high paying jobs in the coal industry.  Again it begs the question, “Why not subsidize clean coal?”
