Ooops … Federal Govt Study Concludes Biofuels From Corn Waste Not Better Than Gas

It’s settled science … bio-fuels made from corn worse than gas in emitting greenhouse gases …

What say you Barack Obama, Al Gore and the rest? According to a federal government paid for study, bio-fuels made from leftovers of harvested corn plants release 7% more greenhouse gases as compared to conventional, evil gasoline. Let me repeat that, this was a paid for federal government study. So not only are we creating a fuel that is more harmful, as they say, to the environment, they are taking the food source away from human and animal usage.


Biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are worse than gasoline for global warming in the short term, a study shows, challenging the Obama administration’s conclusions that they are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help combat climate change.

A $500,000 study paid for by the federal government and released Sunday in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change concludes that biofuels made with corn residue release 7 percent more greenhouse gases in the early years compared with conventional gasoline.

While biofuels are better in the long run, the study says they won’t meet a standard set in a 2007 energy law to qualify as renewable fuel.


If I build subsidies it, it will fail …

Hate it when that happens, eh environmental wackos? Here comes the priceless part, the LEFT and Obama admin officials is criticizing the study as flawed. HAHAHA!!! What’s the matter, don’t like it when the results that you paid for don’t fit your liberal agenda? These are the people that demonize those that do not believe that man is responsible for global warming, oh sorry what do they call it these days, climate change.

The conclusions deal a blow to what are known as cellulosic biofuels, which have received more than a billion dollars in federal support but have struggled to meet volume targets mandated by law. About half of the initial market in cellulosics is expected to be derived from corn residue.

The biofuel industry and administration officials immediately criticized the research as flawed. They said it was too simplistic in its analysis of carbon loss from soil, which can vary over a single field, and vastly overestimated how much residue farmers actually would remove once the market gets underway.

It’s Final — Corn Ethanol Is Of No Use.

OK, can we please stop pretending biofuel made from corn is helping the planet and the environment? With huge subsidies for ethanol in gasoline, with all States now selling gasoline having some ethanol blend, and a general misconception that these biofuels are green, corn ethanol has taken on a $30 billion/yr life of its own.

The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released two of its Working Group reports at the end of last month (WGI and WGIII), and their short discussion of biofuels has ignited a fierce debate as to whether they’re of any environmental benefit at all.

Patrick Moore, Co-Founder of Greenpeace Says “There is No Scientific Evidence that Humans are the “Dominant Cause” of Climate Change

So much for “settled science” on global warming/climate change, eh Barack …

Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace said on Tuesday in front of a Senate panel  that there is no scientific evidence to back claims that humans are the “dominant cause” of climate change. Hold the phone, a co-founder of Green Peace said what? Moore was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, but he left the organization in 1986, accusing the organization of political activism and being more interested in politics, rather than concern for the environment.


Um, how do we lie to Americans now?

A co-founder of Greenpeace told a Senate panel on Tuesday that there is no scientific evidence to back claims that humans are the “dominant cause” of climate change.

Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like Greenpeace use faulty computer models and scare tactics in further promoting a political agenda, Fox News reported.

“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” Mr. Moore said. “Today, we live in an unusually cold period in the history of life on earth and there is no reason to believe that a warmer climate would be anything but beneficial for humans and the majority of other species.

“The fact that we had both higher temperatures and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today fundamentally contradicts the certainty that human-caused CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming,” he said.


Patrick Moore, Greenpeace Co-Founder, Says ‘No Scientific Proof’ Climate Change Is Caused By Humans. … it is as simple as this:

“Perhaps the simplest way to expose the fallacy of ‘extreme certainty’ is to look at the historical record. …When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished at this time. Then an ice age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher than today. There is some correlation, but little evidence, to support a direct causal relationship between CO2 and global temperature through the millennia,” Moore argued

When Green Energy Kills … Rare White-Throated Needletail Bird Last Seen in Britain 22 Years Ago Reappears Only to be Killed by Wind Turbine

Where is the Green Peace, PITA outrage … Animals needlessly killed in the name of energy?

War against oil and coal, eh? Looks like green energy wind turbines may be more deadly. As reported at the Daily Mail, as bird enthusiasts flocked to the Hebrides to catch a glimpse of the brown, black and blue rare white-throated Needletail bird last seen in Great Britain 22 years ago. Then suddenly, the rare bird became even more rare as it flew into the “green” energy wind turbines and was killed.  Below is the VIDEO of the onlookers gushing over the sight of the rare bird before its most unfortunate demise. Listening to them before, I can only imagine what they sounded like when the bird was killed by the evil, big “green” wind turbine.

VIDEO Hat Tip – The Gateway Pundit

There had been only eight recorded sightings of the white-throated needletail in the UK since 1846. So when one popped up again on British shores this week, twitchers were understandably excited.

A group of 40 enthusiasts dashed to the Hebrides to catch a glimpse of the brown, black and blue bird, which breeds in Asia and winters in Australasia.

But instead of being treated to a wildlife spectacle they were left with a horror show when it flew into a wind turbine and was killed.

John Marchant, 62, who had made the trip all the way from Norfolk, said: ‘We were absolutely over the moon to see the bird. We watched it for nearly two hours.

‘But while we were watching it suddenly got a bit close to the turbine and then the blades hit it.

President Barack Obama Unveils Job Killing Climate Change ‘Global Warming’ Plan that Bypasses Congress with EPA

The Divider in Chief strikes again … Obama is a one trick pony with his Chicago style politics of fear.

Priorities!!! The imperial President Barack Obama unveiled his ‘global warming’ climate change plan that would kill more America jobs and also do an end run around Congress.

As Americans struggle to find jobs, record number of Americans are on food stamps, 76% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, and scandals abound with the IRS, NSA, AP, Fox News, Benghazi and the State department, The Hill reports that Barack Obama unveils his priority agenda on climate change. Wasn’t this just called global warming? The number one domestic issue for Americans is jobs, climate change is no where on the radar yet this president is hell-bent of passing his liberal agenda, even if it means for this imperial president to bypass Congress and have the EPA do his bidding. Sadly, Obama during his speech made outrageous and false comments that global warming, oh sorry climate change has cause extreme weather and can be measured in lost lives. Even though CNN reported that there is no evidence that global warming caused twisters.

Sorry, but Obama’s rant is not about science, it is about ideology. Also, this man has no credibility and neither does the junk science of man made global warming/climate change. These so-called truths of climate change are brought to you by the same individual who promised that Obamacare would reduce costs, insure everyone and you could keep your own doctors. How did that work out for you America?

President Obama is launching fresh battles over climate change with plans to curb emissions using executive powers that sidestep Congress — including controversial rules to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants.

The wide-ranging plan, which Obama will tout in a speech later Tuesday, also beefs up federal efforts to help deploy low-carbon and renewable energy, and has programs to help harden communities against climate-fueled extreme weather.

Internationally, it seeks to knock down trade barriers to climate-friendly goods and services; enhance cooperation with India, China and other big carbon emitters; and curb U.S. support for overseas coal plant construction, among many other steps.

The plan is designed to get around Congress, where major climate bills have no political traction. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday that Obama’s executive approach “reflects reality.”

The Divider in Chief even mocked skeptics of climate change and referred to them as ‘flat-Earth society’. Hmm, at least he did not call them racists. What else would we expect from a Community agitator? Obama said, ”The planet is warming. Human activity is contributing to it.” Really, because the earth is actually cooling?  As Weasel Zippers, says the guy who believes in global warming despite the fact there has been zero increase in global temps over the last decade and a half even with an increase in CO2 emissions that exceeded expectations.

President Obama angrily blasted climate change skeptics during his energy policy speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, saying he lacked “patience for anyone who denies that this problem is real.”

“We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society,” Obama said. “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”

As shown by a recent Gallup poll, climate change, global warming, what ever one wants to call the faux science, it shows up no where on the top concerns or really any concerns of the American public. No one cares about climate change, they care about jobs, they care about paying their bills and they care about no existing from paycheck to paycheck. But not this out of touch liberal president. He could care less.

From the Huffington Post, President Barack Obama will ask the State Department not to approve the construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline unless it can first determine that it will not lead to a net increase in greenhouse gas emissions. In your typical Obama non-leadership move, the president tries to have it both ways. Obama strokes the LEFT with his anti-oil agenda and also tries to be non-committal with completely saying no to the Keystone XL pipeline because of the loss of jobs. Sorry, this is a job killer.

“Allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation’s interest,” the president said in a Tuesday speech on climate change. “And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution. The net effects of the pipeline’s impact on our climate will be absolutely critical to determining whether this project is allowed to go forward.”

The president has avoided weighing in on the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline for several years now, citing an executive order asking the State Department to make a determination on the project’s viability first. Environmentalists have called on him to spike the project entirely because of risks that it will contribute irrevocably to global warming and potentially contaminate drinking water if it leaks. Conservatives and even some labor groups have encouraged Obama to approve of the project because of its potential to create jobs.

The new Obama policy somewhat splits the difference — not killing the project outright, but ensuring that it meets a basic environmental standard.


Good Grief, Fireworks Canceled in Oregen Town Not Because of Heat & Dry Conditions … Canceled Amid Concearns for Sea Birds, Brandt’s Cormorant


Fireworks in the coastal town of Depoe Bay were canceled this year for the first time in 19 years since the town started the tradition in 1993. Were the fireworks canceled because of the dry conditions and fires like what has plagued Colorado? Nope. Were they canceled like many towns and cities in the mid-Atlantic states due to damage from recent extreme weather? Nope. The fireworks were actually canceled amid concerns for sea birds.

 The coastal town of Depoe Bay is about to experience its quietest July 3 in 19 years.

Town officials this year reluctantly announced they were cancelling the annual pre-Independence Day fireworks show, following pressure from federal wildlife managers who said the noise disrupts protected sea birds.

Business owners, dependent on the popular show for foot traffic, are not happy.

“It’s a great loss to our community,” said Peggy Leoni, co-owner of Trollers Lodge, a small motel in Depoe Bay.

Oh Canada, Take Off, Eh … Canada to Pull Out of Kyoto Protocol Next Month

Canada and its Conservative government to pull out of the Kyoto Protocol, eh.  With as hypocritical as the Kyoto Protocol is in not applying any standards to China, India and Brazil, how could anyone with a straight face think that Kyoto is beneficial?

Canada will announce next month that it will formally withdraw from the Kyoto Protocol, CTV News has learned.

The Harper government has tentatively planned an announcement for a few days before Christmas, CTV’s Roger Smith reported Sunday evening.

The developments come as Environment Minister Peter Kent prepares for a climate conference in Durban, South Africa that opens on Monday, with delegates from 190 countries seeking a new international agreement for cutting emissions.

The Greenies and environmental critics in the Great White North go mental …

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May called the move “a very damaging act of sabotage.”

“It will reverberate around the world,” May told CTV. “Canada will be a pariah globally if it goes through with this.”

The accord is set to expire next year.

Hollywood Actress Daryl Hannah Arrested at White House for Protesting President Obama’s lack of Greenness

Wasn’t Daryl Hannah arrested in the movie ‘Splash’ (Video: 4:05) too?

Hollywood actress Daryl Hannah was arrested today outside the White House for taking part in an ongoing protest against the unbuilt Keystone XL oil pipeline. I guess Barack Obama is not green enough for the former Mermaid.According to accounts there were about 100 people arrested today protesting Obama’s energy policies.

“Sometimes it’s necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom,” Hannah said in Lafayette Park before her arrest.  “And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future.”

With dozens of others, Hannah sat on the sidewalk in front of the White House and refused three requests from the Park Police to move.

The group organizing the protest, Tar Sands Action, has said the Keystone pipeline — which will stretch from Canada to the Gulf — is among the most important environmental decisions that confront the president.

More videos at the WAPO.

Although I probably agree with little of Daryl Hannah, I will give her this … she walks the walk, unlike hypocrites like Al Gore who claim they are green, tell others that they need to be green and then gets on his Leer jet. Hannah lives, breathes and walks “green” and for that I do have to give her kudos, even though she is a little misguided.  Good for her in not being a profiteering hypocrite like the Gore’s of the world.

Peter Fonda Calls Obama a Fu@king “Traitor” at Cannes Film Festival


Peter Fonda called President Barack Obama a “TRAITOR” in the handling of the post BP oil spill. It’s pretty bad when the far LEFT is turning on Barack Obama. I wonder if VP Biden whispered in Obama’s ear that this is a “big F’n deal?” Is this the start of Obama losing his base and the Left becoming disillusioned? As much as the MSM wants to portray the GOP in trouble for not having a clear Presidential candidate for 2012 … it is all just a smoke screen for the apathy and disillusion of the LEFT of Obama, his campaign promises and policies. As Jammie Wearing Fool states, how will this go over in Hollywood?

Peter Fonda launched a four-letter attack on US President Barack Obama at the Cannes film festival on Wednesday, calling him a traitor over the handling of the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill.

Fonda — a keen environmentalist and co-producer of the film which centres on the explosion of the BP oil rig Deepwater Horizon, the ensuing spill and its consequences — accused Washington of trying to gag reporting on the issue.

“I sent an email to President Obama saying, ‘You are a f(expletive) traitor,’ using those words… ‘You’re a traitor, you allowed foreign boots on our soil telling our military — in this case the coastguard — what they can and could not do, and telling us, the citizens of the United States, what we could or could not do’.”

LOL, what Weasel Zippers said.

Imagine how the MSM would be covering this story if someone on the RIGHT made such a comment?

The So Called Eco-Friendly President Barack “GREEN” Obama Celebrates Earth Day by Burning 53,000 Gallons of Jet Fuel

HEY BARACK … IT AIN’T EASY BEING GREEN. Especially when one doesn’t even try. The Obama hypocrisy continues.

President Barack Obama celebrated Earth Day why burning 53,000 gallons of jet fuel while telling us “little people” that we must sacrifice and be “green”. However, the do as I say, not as I do President tells us all to get fuel efficient hybrids and electric cars so that he can fly around on our dime. Its not as though Barack Obama was flying to see the US troops or conducting business of the United States, Obama burned this fuel so that he could conduct fund raising. What are the odds that Obama will be buying some carbon credits for All Gore? Of course he could not be reached for comment, rumor has it he was on his private jet as well.

President Obama declared today’s 41st annual Earth Day proof of America’s ecological and conservation spirit—then completed a three-day campaign-style trip logging 10,666 miles on Air Force One, eating up some 53,300 gallons at a cost of about $180,000. And that doesn’t include the fuel consumption of his helicopter, limo, or the 29 other vehicles that travel with that car.

“Green” is for thee, not for me. if it is not bad enough that Obama made no effort to conserve anything on earth day, including the hot air from his mouth by having the audacity to preach to the peons about Earth Day. Of course Obama’s stewardship and sacrifice was what exactly?

Obama proclaimed: “For over 40 years, our nation has come together on Earth Day to appreciate and raise awareness about our environment, natural heritage, and the resources upon which generations of Americans have depended. Healthy land and clean water and air are essential to the health of our communities and wildlife. Earth Day is an opportunity to renew America’s commitment to preserving and protecting the state of our environment through community service and responsible stewardship.”

Over at Michelle, they remind us of just how concerned Obama was with “Earth Day” with pics of litter from his 2009 inauguration. Aptly stated by Jammie Wearing Fool, let’s hope that we can make Obama’s words come to fruition about trading in gas guzzling, inefficient, burdens, namely Barack Obama in 2012.

Wait it gets better, not to be outdone by her jet fuel guzzling husband, Michelle Obama cancelled her Earth Day event due to a light drizzle. Oh those crazy ”GREEN” Obama’s. I wonder if she would have cancelled a vacation for the same reason?
