Carbon in the Ground, Pie-in-the-sky

Speaking of energy-related things the greens won’t let us do, this from the Department of Energy, via Nature, is beautiful.

Per Nature’s description:

On the left is a map showing many of the known stationary CO2 sources in the United States and Canada. Blue represents electricity generation, with many power plants clustered in the east and midwest. Orange represents cement manufacturing, including groupings in southern California. Red indicates petroleum and natural-gas processing, showing up most starkly as the Alberta tar sands in Canada.

Potential reservoirs for sequestering much of the CO2 from such activities could be deep saline formations (above right, in blue), or layers of rock permeated with brine.

Ah, of course. The demonized, “deadly” (read Red Hot Lies, and see how journalists actually parrot the more extremist claims imaginable, that carbon dioxide is “deadly”) gas will just be stored in massive quantities under, oh, most of your homes, especially those of you living in some very deep blue political regions. And your green pals will simply allow the permits.

 

Back here in the real world, the greens would litigate every single permit simply to conduct a feasibility inquiry, let alone actually conduct pilot projects or ultimately do something with CO2 other than ration it. Because finding a way to sequester carbon means not changing our wretchedly productive, prosperous, and procreative lifestyles which they hate so much and which lie at the root of this latest, “greatest threat.”

The old anti-Semitism was mostly, but not exclusively, a tribal prejudice expressed in America up until the mid 20th century most intensely on the right.

The Left, the Wall, the Truth

Democrats and others on the left offer three reasons for their opposition to building a wall on America's southern border. 1. A wall is ineffective. 2. A wall is too expensive. 3. A wall is immoral. Each one is false, so false as to constitute lies. So, the only question is: Do Democrats and others on ... Read More
