Secretary Of Energy Lays Out The Case For Dropping The EPA Regulations

The private sector already lowered CO2 emissions past the target, so we can eliminate the EPA and make the world better for everyone.

    And it seems that ocean acidification from CO2 is not true either

    then maybe the people at Scripps Institute are climate deniers too.

      “Ocean Acidification” was never true. A slight shift towards “Neutralization” or base is plausible. Anytime I see any paper that purports to be science or any article that claims to be reporting on science that mentions “ocean acidification” I immediately know it’s not worth reading as a source of science information.

        If water gets warmer, it releases dissolved gas, not absorbs it.

        Dalton’s law of partial pressures is linear, the part of Henry’s law that deals with concentration versus temperature is not.

        How much dissolved CO2 is in water at its boiling point, irrespective of the concentration – hence the partial pressure – of the CO2 in the atmosphere above it?

        Basically, we can have warming oceans or ocean “acidification”, but not both at the same time.

          Exactly why a bottle of Coke that has been opened and then resealed retains it’s carbonation much better and longer if refrigerated.

          Now I will freely admit that I have little knowledge of chemistry. But reading the pH scale literally I can only conclude that before an alkaline can become acidic it must first pass through neutral at some point. So it seems to me that since cean water is slightly alkaline/base and it cannot be “acidified” it can only be “Neutralized” until it’s neutral on the pH scale at which point then it can acidify. Let me ask this. Is there such a thing as Alkalinization of an acidic liquid?

    Gee think, If you toss out the millions of illegal immigrants and all the H1B visa types (85,000/yr) we could slash our CO2 a lot more! Add in the 1.6 million muslims since 9/11 too just for the heck of it.

    Mexico’s former ambassador to the U.S. said that 30 million “undocumented immigrants” are living in the United States. The US population is 318.9 million (2014) so that is an additional 10% cut!!! Not to mention the fact that Mexicans living in the USA have larger families since they can afford them better.

      …and they eat a lot of beans. Don’t forget methane.

      • Speaking of beans, then who would be picking them for us? Non Citizens should not get any welfare and that would prevent a lot of problems with immigration. A illegal mother and father who have a Child in the US, that child should not be a Citizen. Common sense and history tells us that you cannot prevent people from living where they want to unless tremendous force is used. Thinking that we can restrict people from leaving places with poor political and economic conditions and going to better places is naïve. I actually think living in a place you justly acquire is a inalienable right. Government restrictions are not a function we the Citizens gave to them. “To establish an uniform rule of naturalization” is the exact clause. The problem is that our economy is so bad that many of our Citizens don’t have jobs thus we do not like it when foreigners come and take what jobs are available because they are willing to work for less. If we would fix our economic system, there would be jobs for everyone. I wrote an interesting article on this yesterday that I think is important. http://betweentheheadlines.net/2015/11/12/to-fire-or-to-hire-that-is-the-question/

    And China has meet their goal too.
    From the FACT SHEET: U.S.-China Joint Announcement on Climate Change and Clean Energy Cooperation
    https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2014/11/11/fact-sheet-us-china-joint-announcement-climate-change-and-clean-energy-c

    At the same time, President Xi Jinping of China announced targets to peak CO2 emissions around 2030, with the intention to try to peak early, and to increase the non-fossil fuel share of all energy to around 20 percent by 2030.

    http://cleantechnica.com/2015/03/11/non-fossil-fuel-sources-provide-25-chinas-electricity/

    According to the latest round of statistical data issued by CEC, China’s nation-wide electricity generation reached 5550TW hours in 2014, for year-on-year growth of 3.6%.

    In 2014, nationwide hydropower generation breached the 1000 TW hour threshold for the first time in history to reach 1070TW hours,
    1070 TW / 5550 TW = 19.23 %

    Nationwide nuclear power generation in 2014 was 126.2 TW hours, for a year-on-year increase of 13.2% Usage times fell 385 hours year-on-year to 7489 hours on average.
    126.2 TW/ 5550 TW = 02.28 %

    19.23+2.28 = 21.51 %

      Yep, quite hilarious when you do the sums.

      Already over their non fossil fuel target.

      Obama signed this agreement, didn’t he.
      Such a bright little boy .😉

    The US drilling industry’s lowering of US CO2 emissions is even more impressive because its happened despite the anti-nuclear green movement has been raising emissions in New England and California by forcing shutdown of emission free nuclear plants:

    … Entergy Corporation gave in to nuclear protesters and decided to close Vermont Yankee. The reactor provided two-thirds of the state’s electricity and made it the lowest carbon generating jurisdiction in the country. Now Vermont is burning natural gas and importing some of its electricity from New York’s Indian Point reactors which are located on the lower Hudson River just north of New York City.

    But that isn’t the end. Entergy is now planning to close the Pilgrim reactor, which provides eastern Massachusetts with carbon-free energy. In California, San Diego Electric was dragooned into closing the twin San Onofre reactors, a decision that threw 8 million tons of replacement carbon into the atmosphere – the equivalent of 1.6 million cars – and increased the state’s emissions by 35 percent. Now Entergy has announced it will also close the Fitzpatrick reactor in upstate New York – a move that has upset New York Governor Andrew Cuomo even though he has spent most of his time in office trying to close down Indian Point.

      In chemistry, when you come up with a new process/product before you go into production you go from lab bench to pilot plant and then finally when the bugs are worked out to full scale production. It is called proof of concept. Why do it this way? Well one small company I worked for skipped the pilot plant stage and went to full scale production. The process was highly exothermic…. They blew up the reaction vessel.

      So in order to NOT blow up US civilization I suggest we also do a proof of concept of Green Energy. Since Berny Saunders did a poll and well over 90% of the idiots people in Vermont want GREEN ENERGY, I say GO FOR IT! — NOW.

      Poland and the Czech Republic, are taking action on Germany’s use of their power grid that Germany undertook without asking permission and without paying for its use. These countries are building a huge switch-off at their borders to block the import of green energy that is destabilizing their grids and causing potential blackouts in their countries…
      http://instituteforenergyresearch.org/analysis/germanys-green-energy-destabilizing-electric-grids/

      This same type of equipment could be used to isolate Vermont from energy. Of course all Cars/trucks/planes/trains/boats and other fossil fuel powered vehicles would also be forbidden.

      After a year we can reopen the roads to Vermont and see how their GREEN experiment worked.
