“Between conservatives focusing all their attention on the successes/failures of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., and the left having a meltdown over the supposed ‘racism‘ and unprecedented disrespect of Clint Eastwood’s ‘Empty Chair’ routine, little attention has been given to an executive order issued last Thursday by President Barack Obama that targets industrial ‘efficiency’ and carbon emissions….
…The order, which aims to increase the number of cogeneration plants in the U.S. by 50 percent by 2020 and slash carbon emissions by 150 million tons per year, is the administration’s latest effort to ‘deploy cleaner and more efficient energy production in the country by working around political resistance to climate change and ‘green’ energy legislation on Capitol Hill,’ Reuters reports.
‘The Federal Government has limited but important authorities to overcome … barriers, and our efforts to support investment in industrial energy efficiency and CHP [Combined heat and power] should involve coordinated engagement with a broad set of stakeholders,’ the order says….”
The malignant narcissist strikes again. Taxpayers will pick up the tab for the votes of green energy loons and cronies as purchased by Barack Obama.
In the meantime, the media gives another constitutional violation by their messiah a pass.
While politicians, celebrities and media moguls can afford exorbitant energy costs, the average Americans cannot and will be the hardest hit.
