A University of Maryland professor has stated that a violent weather related event would stimulate the economy by increasing demand for construction workers to help rebuild. This thinking meshes well with earlier comments by an editor of the Harvard Business Review that Climate Change and Global Warming represents a profit opportunity.

This thinking may help to explain why Obama’s energy policies propel us toward cataclysmic Climate Change – if we are not there already, and where we will most certainly be when Obama slams through the Keystone Pipeline that will, amongst other things increase our reliance on foreign oil.

So how can Obama even attempt to show concern for the victims of Hurricane Irene when he and Kenneth Salazar are completely engrossed in the act of fobbing off the cost of our addiction to fossil fuels onto people like you and me, as well as our children?

Kukushima still burns. GE’s nuclear energy isn’t the answer.

Trump's Lies Are Killing Us

Thom plus logo Donald Trump keeps insisting in his rallies, as he did last night, that he has lowered prescription drug prices, is protecting people with pre-existing conditions, and is improving Medicare. While everybody knows that he lies a lot, these are among the most pernicious lies.
