Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

The climate is always changing - has for millions of years - 100% of us agree on that.
But the climate was changing and fluctuating long before CO2 became part of the equation. And why an overwhelming number of scientists poo-poo the Al "rich as Romney now " Gore malarkey.
Just think about that for a minute.
Bye now.
There are certain things we can do to keep a check on the impacts we make with carbon footprints though. While we can't control natures events that have impact on such, we can, and should, at least try to be mindful of the effects of what we do can have, and try to minimilize them to the best of our abilities, rather than just totally disregard them.
Anything involving stuff like that should involve *compromises* from ALL sides when it comes to environmental impact issues, derived of awarenesses, and willingness to treat our planet with the most respect as possible, while still maintaining "progress" as the world has come to know them.
And that should include the leaders that have the means to present AND aid in reaching viable compromises-- rather than partisanisTic ploys of either "side" resorting to extreme measures or disregards that result in nothing but stagnant stalemates and de-progressions.

Fox News, Home Of Benghazi Myths, To Air One-Hour Special On Benghazi
Fox News will air a one-hour special titled Benghazi: The Truth Behind The Smokescreen which purports to provide "a comprehensive look at all of the new developments in the story." But Fox is not a credible source on Benghazi, having littered its coverage of the incident with myths, misinformation, and outright falsehoods.
http://mediamatters.org/research/2013/06/28/f...
"sonic"
Tell me which of the below are falsehoods:
- 4 American's die at the hands of muslim extremists
- rice spends a week on TV lying, telling all that a video was the cause of atrocity
- president nobama stated those responsible would be brought to justice, months later no indication the administration has a clue as to the perpetrators
- no help was sent to assist those murdered
Fox News reported all of the above. I am sure your gift of BS woo deny that.

Nevermind the 65 million Russians killed in WW's 1 & 2. Let's focus of the "6 million" (Ilya Ehrenburg) "number" that was repeated over and over from 1915 until now.

No, all true as I post here. "On Thursday, a bankruptcy court will review a proposal that would return 93 percent of the missing money to customers like Mr. Desai. And the trustee who has submitted the proposal, James W. Giddens, has quietly identified a way that, if sent to the judge and approved, could plug the remaining shortfall for customers in the United States, according to people involved in the case."... "The broad push to make MF Global customers nearly whole, a goal now surprisingly within reach, is a remarkable turnaround from the firmís 2011 bankruptcy filing when such a recovery seemed impossible."..."The hearing on Thursday presents a turning point for several major players in the MF Global case, including the firmís trustees, creditors and former executives.

For one, Mr. Giddens late last year made peace with an overseas administrator tending to the firmís British unit and Louis J. Freeh, the MF Global trustee recovering money for creditors. The pact ended a bitter fight over access to limited resources.

And Jon S. Corzine, the former New Jersey governor who headed MF Global when it collapsed, can now claim some small degree of vindication. The European bonds at the center of a $6.3 billion bet by Mr. Corzine fully paid out when they matured in recent months."

The ozone layer has been in "repair modes" for many years now. Many advancements in technologies have ALREADY been applied to energy productions especially.
To ignore subsidizing ALL areas of energy productions in favor of just some and to hone in on and hammer down on just ONE area of natural resources used for such, is living in a lala land-because there's a world FULL of contaimenents being dumped daily.

Kind of like just ignoring what went on in Benghazi and blaming it off on some obscurity of convenience, especially with big black flags waving for weeks prior.

ST. LOUIS and SPRINGFIELD, Ill., July 10 /PRNewswire/--

AmerenUE's Labadie Plant has earned the top spot among U.S. coal-fired power plants as the nation's lowest emitter of nitrogen oxide (NOx), according to 1999 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data on electric utility plant NOx emissions. Nitrogen oxide emissions can contribute to ozone formation under certain summertime hot weather conditions. Reduction of NOx emissions can help to lower ozone levels and improve air quality.

In addition, the power plants of St. Louis-based AmerenUE and Springfield-based AmerenCIPS, hold 13 of the nation's top 20 spots in a 1999 ranking of generating plants with the lowest NOx emissions.(NOTE: On May 1, 2000, AmerenCIPS electric generating facilities became part of a newly created nonregulated company -- AmerenEnergy Generating Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ameren.) An operating company of St. Louis-based Ameren Corporation (NYSE: AEE), AmerenUE owns and operates the facilities occupying the top six spots in the listing.

To reduce sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide emissions from its power plants, Ameren companies have spent more than $300 million since the early 1990s. AmerenUE invested in low-NOx burner technology at its Labadie, Meramec and Rush Island Plants in the metropolitan St. Louis area. At Labadie Plant, the company installed state-of-the-art computerized controls that monitor hundreds of variables on a nearly continuous basis and make fine adjustments to the air and fuel. In St. Charles County, AmerenUE's Sioux Plant pioneered the use of a staged combustion/overfire air system that reduces NOx cost-effectively in a cyclone boiler plant, which can't use standard low-NOx burner technology. That technology allowed Sioux Unit 2 to become the lowest emitting cyclone boiler in the nation.

Three AmerenUE plants received the 1998 Missouri Governor's Pollution Prevention Award for voluntarily and aggressively reducing nitrogen oxide emissions by more than 50% below the Clean Air Act requirements -- in spite of an increase in the amount of coal burned. Systemwide, since 1990 Ameren plants have reduced their NOx emission rate by more than 50 percent and their sulfur dioxide rate by more than 70 percent.

FutureGen Industrial Alliance Announces Carbon Storage Site Selection Process for FutureGen 2.0

Washington, D.C.- The FutureGen Industrial Alliance today announced details of a process that will lead to the selection of an Illinois site for the storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) collected at FutureGen 2.0, a landmark project that will advance the deployment of carbon capture and storage technology at an Ameren Energy Resources power plant in Meredosia, Illinois. Last month the Department of Energy signed two agreements, one with the FutureGen Industrial Alliance and one with Ameren Energy Resources that committed $1 billion in Recovery Act funding to design, build and operate FutureGen 2.0.

"Todayís announcement is another important step forward for the FutureGen 2.0 project in Illinois," said Secretary Chu. "This first of its kind repowering project will create jobs in Illinois while advancing technology that can make the United States a world leader in carbon capture and storage."

"We are going to demonstrate to the world that we can use one of our greatest natural assets in a way that protects our environment and puts more people to work in Illinois. FutureGen will continue making Illinois an international leader in developing the latest in cutting-edge, clean coal technology," Illinois Governor Pat Quinn said.

"This is an exciting opportunity for Illinois communities to participate in a project that will put our state and our nation at the forefront of clean coal technology," said U.S. Senator Dick Durbin. "Under this competitive process, interested communities that meet the selection criteria will have a fair shot at hosting the CO2 storage hub, visitorís center, research site and training facility. These facilities will create economic development, provide good-paying jobs and attract researchers and visitors from around the world."
