“Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”

“Coal-powered plants, you know, natural gas, you name it, whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that cost on to consumers.”

    God save us if His Majesty gets his “flexibility.”

    I’m not just scared if His Majesty is re-immaculated. I’m scared if he loses, he will have a “compressed” second term that will last from now until January 20th.

    A hard-left committed idealogue with 35 hard-left czars and hundreds of commissars can do a lot of damage in three months, with executive orders, agency regulations, recess appointments, and fast and furious type “under-the-radar” stunts.

    I was discussing politics this past summer with one of my best friends, who works for a school especially dependent upon government assistance, and does very well on our dime. This good friend also likes to think he is a political wonk, but had never heard this Obama quote before. Amazingly none of the MSM, upon which he depends for political wisdom, had ever supplied this most astonishing of open admissions from a man who wants our support.

    After that incident I made sure everyone I know watched this mugger’s confession.

    • Why isn’t the Romney campaign featuring this?

      • Mike F. says:

        I believe Romney referred to Obama’s remarks in a speech a couple of weeks ago in front of coal workers in PA. But I agree with you Steve…the Romney Campaign should be hitting this issue hard! Hopefully they are in Ohio, PA, MI, WI and VA in ads.

      • Eric Simpson says:

        Maybe it’s because they think they’d be called racist.
        “But that’s just Obama’s own words.” … “Racist!” It’s not racist. Go ahead and make the point about O’s own words on gas prices (that he [like Chu] said [in 2008] that he wants prices to rise, only slowly.. and that’s exactly what he “achieved” over his 4 year term! Imagine the second term it may rise slowly to the $10 a gallon Chu wants.).

      • This is good, but there is SO much more good stuff out there Romney oughta be using too….

  4. Eric Simpson says:

    Energy underpins the economy. Is it any wonder that O’s economic performance has been the worst since the 1930s.
    In the debate O tried to get us to believe that he is pro-energy, when other than fanciful ineffective windmills and solar that would bankrupt this country, he’s done nothing but try to obstruct energy: opposing shale and fracking, continuing to restrict Alaska drilling and now imposing even more restrictions on Alaska, banning or limiting drilling on federal lands everywhere, stopping the XL Pipeline, and laying the foundation for bankrupting the coal industry.
    That’s O’s record. That record is no surprise and fully consistent with his very own words about wanting to see energy prices skyrocket. O’s bs about having an “all of the above” energy policy is belied by his record, and his swaggering talk against oil and coal and other forms of vital conventional energy. And it is belied by the words of his (Anti)-Energy Secretary Stephen Chu who said he wants us to have to suffer $10 a gallon gas. Insane.

This is the same newspaper where former Vice President Al Gore got his start in journalism, that endorsed Obama in 2008. Of course, the paper endorsed Gore in 2000. In 2004, the paper endorsed Democrat John Kerry over President Bush. Also, Middle Tennessee is a traditional Democratic stronghold.”

  14. David Appell says:

    Do you think private property is important?

    If so, then shouldn’t those who damage private property be held accountable?

    Shouldn’t producers and and users pay for their damage they do by burning fossil fuels? Generating power with fossil fuels creates more damage than value-added, according to Yale economist William Nordhaus in a 2011 paper:

    Muller, Nicholas Z., Robert Mendelsohn, and William Nordhaus. 2011. “Environmental Accounting for Pollution in the United States Economy.” American Economic Review, 101(5): 1649–75.

    To summarize that paper’s findings: for every $1 in value that comes from coal-generated electricity, it creates $2.20 in damages. Total damages: $70 billion per year (in 2012 dollars).

    Petroleum-generated electricity is even worse: $5.13 in damages for $1 in value.

    The National Academy of Sciences estimates that fossil fuel use causes damages of at least $120 B/yr to health and the environment:

    “Hidden Costs of Energy: Unpriced Consequences of Energy Production and Use”
    National Research Council, 2010

    Of course, no one on forums like this wants to mention external costs, because including them makes it clear that we are all subsidizing fossil fuels by a huge amount through worse health and higher medical costs.

    Please explain why users of these fuels shouldn’t be paying for their damages.

    • LLAP says:

      @David: “Please explain why users of these fuels shouldn’t be paying for their damages.”

      Are you?

    • Absolutely. Hansen and his spawn should have to pay back the billions which others have lost because of his stupidity.

      • David Appell says:

        How has Hansen cost you any money?

        • You are amazing. I post a video where the president of kenya says he wants to make electricity prices skyrocket. You respond with some crap about how that is good, and then you ask how it affects me? ROFLMAO

      • Eric Barnes says:

        How can Appell follow that one up?
        A quintessential Appell statement. Stupid beyond words. Maybe he’s giving himself shock therapy now?

      • Me says:

        And when their bullshit carbon tax on top of everything for nothing goes through you can bet it will be passed down to everyone that has to pay for anything. except for those that owns the carbon trading markets. they can issue themselves carbon credits and live the high life.

      • David Appell says:

        So you live in Kenya, do you?

      • David Appell says:

        > Sky-rocketing electricity bills in Australia.

        Electricity derived from fossil fuels damages human health, private property, and ecosystems. Why shouldn’t those who use that product pay for those damages?

      • “Electricity derived from fossil fuels damages human health, private property, and ecosystems. Why shouldn’t those who use that product pay for those damages?”

        Because the benefits outweigh the costs. If it was the other way around, nobody would use those products, services or technologies. Because people are not stupid. (Well present company excepted.)

      • David Appell says:

        >> Because the benefits outweigh the costs.

        False. Can you not read?

        Muller, Nicholas Z., Robert Mendelsohn, and William Nordhaus. 2011. “Environmental Accounting for Pollution in the United States Economy.” American Economic Review, 101(5): 1649–75.

        For every $1 in value that comes from coal-generated electricity, it creates $2.20 in damages.
        Total damages: $70 billion per year (in 2012 dollars).Petroleum-generated electricity is even worse: $5.13 in damages for $1 in value.

      • @David

        “For every $1 in value that comes from coal-generated electricity, it creates $2.20 in damages.”

        Are you seriously putting forward the claim that if we shut off the fossil fuel industry tomorrow we would be $1.20 better per unit of value? E.g., If the fossil fuel industry bestowed a trillion dollars in economic benefits to the planet annually, shutting it down tomorrow would bestow an extra 1.2 trillion dollars of value?

        Are you a mental retard?

    • David, hundreds of people drown in bathtubs every year in the US, should manufacturers of bath tubs pay for it and pass on the cost to consumers? A similar number die of accidental suffocation and strangulation in bed. Should consumers pay for that? About 16,500 people die each year in some sort of transport accident, including hundreds of bicyclists. Should everyone pay for the costs of those deaths? Charge more for bicycles perhaps? Tens of thousands of individuals die from drug overdoses… should the companies that manufacture those base chemical compounds compensate the ‘victims’ ?

      Basically, as far as I can work out, your philosophy is that if anything bad ever happens to anyone, everyone else should be responsible in some indirect way, and we should all compensate each other. The compensation, I suppose, can come from borrowing money from China or something. (I assume you haven’t thought about the economics but rather focus on the “fairness” part of it.) 😉

      • David Appell says:

        Re: bathtubs: the proper use of bathtubs does not lead to damage especially to other people.

        The designed use of fossil fuels does.

        So should those who use them pay for that damage? If not, why not?

      • Me says:

        Well stop using it then and pay your share now to set the example since your whinning so much about it! The rest of us will carry on as per normal because we don’t have a problem with it. 😆

      • Sadly, you still don’t get it. Goods, services and technologies incur benefits as well as costs. I purchase a pair of Nike running shoes. I cross the street and get hit by a car and die. Should Nike compensate me? On the other hand, thanks to Nike, more people exercise, live healthier lives and Nike’s products produce a net benefit to society.

        The problem with your ‘logic’ (I’m being polite) is that you’re prepared to accept all the benefits but don’t wish to subtract the benefits from the costs. This is because you’ll end up owing Nike more than you did for the payment of those shoes…

        As for fossil fuel base load energy… would you prefer that or a little wood oven in your kitchen? Let’s say hypothetically fossil fuel base load energy shortens the life span of every US citizen by, oh I don’t know… 14 minutes… But let’s take away the fossil fuel base load energy supply. Do what they do now in some parts of Africa. Maybe that shortens the life of every citizen by 4 years.

        Your problem is that you’re demanding compensation for 14 minutes, while being unprepared to compensate the energy supplier for those extra 4 years. Do you now understand how juvenile your argument is?

        Or to put it in David Appell speak, why should the energy suppliers provide you with benefits you are unwilling to fully pay for? How is that fair to the coal industry?

      • Brian G Valentine says:

        David, why should anybody have to pay for your crack smoking delusions

      • David Appell says:

        William Nordhaus isn’t a “crack smoking delusion” — it’s one of the best environmental economists in the world, whom climate skeptics cited copiously when he said cap-and-trade wasn’t economically efficient.

        Your dismissal of him just proves you don’t even know what side he’s on. (Don’t expect your future replies to be taken seriously.)

      • @David, Please add “in my opinion”. 😉

        Might as well throw in a logical fallacy (argument from authority) while you’re busy burying yourself.

      • Brian G Valentine says:

    • sunsettommy says:

      Yawn what a bore you are David!

      Why are you still using the computer or taking a hot bath or cooking on the stove courtesy of Natural Gas and Coal.Why are you still eating the food you bought at the store that were originally from the farms and they ALL use Natural Gas and Coal to make it all possible.

      There are still are places to go to live away from “modern conveniences” you rail against.Try living the way Helen and Scott Nearing did by growing most of their own food,build their own house,sheds and the solar heated greenhouse by their own hands,

      I am sure you will finally lose all that extra weight and feel better knowing you now live like the monkey does out in the wild and leaving that natural stuff like coal and Natural gas in the ground where they belong.

      I hope you like spinach……

      • David Appell says:

        None of my power comes from coal. I pay extra to have green energy.
        Why don’t you? Why do you expect the rest of the world to pay for your damages?

      • Scott says:

        But David,

        Surely some of the food you eat was produced using fossil-fuel energy, right? Or the vehicle you use to commute (even bike or public transit)? Heck, the manufacturing of the systems used to generate your “green” energy were likely made using fossil-fuel energy…and even if they weren’t, then certainly energy used in the original R&D of such technologies was from fossil fuels.

        You see, the numbers you’re throwing around are only valid in a system with set boundaries. I could just as easily claim, and probably more validly, that all of the “green” technologies were developed using energy generated by fossil fuels and therefore any benefits from them stemmed from those same fossil fuels. The claim that the net benefits of fossil fuels is negative is bizarre to me. I don’t see any alternative than to conclude that there would be far, far, fewer people on the Earth if fossil fuel technology had never been used. So the only way your argument is valid is to say that each person alive in the last century or so caused a net loss of wealth.

        Viewing people as a net negative has certainly been done before, but such a religious view is frankly quite frightening.


    • Scarface says:

      @ David Appell

      I think you forgot at least three major points next to your supposed damage ratio of oil:

      1. The energy each and everyone uses a day is equivalent to 600 men working for you
      2. The goods produced with energy are the basis for our free market and prosperity
      3. The costs of producing ‘green energy’ in both raw materials for production (rare earth metals, land, damage of property and so on) and taxes are extremely high.

      How can you not take this in your equation?

      • Because he is an idiot and the wierdos he seeks out and whose feet he sits at, are also idiots. But don’t expect a rebuttal. He does no thinking for himself and cannot respond.

      • Really, the utter bullsh%^ factor here is what the cost would be of NOT having these things. One of the things this “analysis”* “accounts” for is SEWAGE TREATMENT! Can you IMAGINE the real cost of not having modern sewage processing?!? And get this -marinas! They nazis want your boats now! Marinas! Would it make them feel better if everyone kept their boats separately? Costs a bit to do that without your own waterfront property. Ormaybe that’s what they’re driving at — middle class people shouldn’t be allowed to own boats and keep them together where they;re handy and can be cared for properly. Only the 1%s with beachfront on Cape Cod get to have boats. Is that it, Rube Appleknocker, or whatever your name is?

      • * “analysis” — from the two ancient Latin terms, “ysis” meaning “to pull out of ”
        (with a tip to Dilbert)

      • It would be easy to test David’s idea. We could power down our energy plants for a few weeks. Then check how much wealthier we have all become. That’s basically David’s claim, in a nutshell.

    • Lou says:

      Typical faux liberal crap as usual…

    • “Generating power with fossil fuels creates more damage than value-added”

Although another politer word for ‘imbecile’ is ‘romantic’. (Society went through a similar period towards the end of the 18th century, where fuzzy feel good ideas trumped reason.)

    • chris y says:

      Assuming David Appell PhD theoretical physics lives in Portland Oregon, the power pulled from his wall socket is on average 61% from fossil fuels, with 32% from burning coal. Unless he has installed solar panels or a wind turbine on his house and disconnected from the grid, his claim that none of his power comes from coal is the sort of vacuous drivel I hear from graduate students studying creative writing.

    Left hand waving at its worst. David, seek help now.

  24. Sadly, true. Nordhaus publishes in a strange little ‘branch’ of economics called ‘environmental economics’. This has the approximate relationship to economics equivalent to what naturopathy has to nutritional science… For example Nordhaus et al., discuss how the energy industry ‘damages’ the economic output of a berry farm, due to unaccounted for externalities such as air pollution. In doing his calculations he is weirdly oblivious to the obvious fact that the berry farm would not exist without the energy industry, as this is required for transport, cultivation, administration, etc. The field is so utterly bizarre and disconnected from reality, it can’t even be described as junk science… perhaps it can be tagged as ‘ideology’ or some such.

    Romney is playing this Obama soundbite @ gas stations in Philly, on some sort of mini advertising screens attached to the pumps. Also: “Washington, San Francisco, Sacremento, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Houston, Detroit, Dallas, Chicago, Boston and Atlanta.”

    Who Am I?

    I was born in one country, raised in another.
    My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women.
    I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me. My mother died at an early age from cancer.
    Later in life, questions arose over my real name. My birth records were sketchy and no one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
    I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs & didn’t follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.
    I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them. That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and I embarked on a new career. I wrote a book about my struggles growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.
    I became active in local politics in my 30′s then with secret help, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s. They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything. That reinforced my conceit. I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization. Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.
    I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego. At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign policy. I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunity to bash it. But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country’s economy. I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better and every poor person would be fed & housed for free.
    I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess. It was the free market, banks & corporations. I decided to start making citizens hate them and if they were envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight. I called mine “A People’s Campaign” and that sounded good to all. I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics & was able to gain widespread popular support. I knew that if I merely offered the people ‘hope’, together we could change our country and the world. So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities” like the Jews & Blacks. My true views were not widely known & I needed to keep them unknown, until after I became my nation’s leader. I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I truly believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I’m glad they didn’t. Then I became the most powerful man in the world. And the world learned the truth.

    WHO AM I? ……….

    The answer: ADOLF HITLER…Of whom were you thinking?

      His “other” religion. Don’t say he had a Jewish background? I heard he was.
      If I was a US citizen, I’d vote Republican at the drop of a hat providing the GOP acted fairly and honestly. Which they did not.
      I guarantee crazies and psychopaths will be wandering the halls of power after the elections. Regardless.

    Steven, I would like to submit this video to you and suggest all of your readers view. This is an outstanding video that I think everyone should watch and consider as they prepare to vote on Tuesday. And please, EVERYONE get out and vote. I cannot stress enough just how important this election is. You can go out of your way to do all sorts of other trivial things in your life, this is one of the most important things you may ever do during your lifetime. You MUST get out and vote!

    I predict Obama will open tomorrow with an early lead, then when Republicans get out of work they’ll go vote.

  51. Drewski says:

    Time to take down the video Steve.

    Now lets sing: “It’s a beautiful morning. . . . “.
