And now for the rest of the story:

"BEIJING, Jan 8 2014 (Reuters)- China approved the construction of more than 100 million tonnes of new coal production capacity in 2013 - six times more than a year earlier and equal to 10 percent of U.S. annual usage - flying in the face of plans to tackle choking air pollution."

"The scale of the increase, which only includes major mines, reflects Beijing's aim to put 860 million tonnes of new coal production capacity into operation over the five years to 2015, more than the entire annual output of India."

"According to data compiled by Reuters, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), China's top planning authority, approved the construction of 15 new large-scale coal mines with 101.3 million tonnes of annual capacity in 2013."

"While expanding output at such bases, China has shut more than 300 million tonnes of old capacity in the last decade, but critics say new mines are rapidly outpacing closures and the policy merely shifts China's environmental problems elsewhere."

"The 2011-2015 plan said around 860 million tonnes of new coal production capacity will be brought into operation, as well as 300 more gigawatts of coal-fired power, twice the total generation capacity of Germany."

"We estimate China's total coal production capacity will be 4.7 billion tonnes by 2015 - I think the government figure is a big underestimation."

You're not serious, are you? The information I posted was from their long term plans, it mentioned the closing of some older facilities while opening up new ones. Your article was ONLY about closing some of the plants in the BEIJING area and even stated that "Even with the Beijing ban, coal use is expected to soar in China."

The way it think is that the President (Obama) was elected twice by the people fair and square. Others that didn't get their way because they were out voted should recognize the majority of Americans want Obama to rule the Nation. Thus your question should be answered by this very simple statement. Winners win and losers lose whether it be in Las Vegas or and election. Losers usually go home because they lost. Losers should realize they lost and act like an adult. Losers should change their agenda that made them lose the last time. If you don't change your agenda or in fact make even a worse agenda to try to sell the public with lies and distortions makes it even worse. Look closely at the next elections and see which way most Americans want the Country to go. If you didn't learn anything last election, then maybe this time you will.
What losers are you referring to? The 234 Republicans who WON their seats in the House of Representatives? The 45 Republicans who WON their Senatorial seats? The WINNERS who came to DC with a responsibility to their constituents who voted AGAINST Obama's agenda? Those WINNERS?

Several anti-environmentalists have claimed that public concern over the effects of DDT after the publication of Rachel Carson's Silent Spring led to a ban on the pesticide in some third world countries in the 1960s. This ban, it is claimed, led to a resurgence in malaria, resulting in thousands of deaths. But in accounts of the war on malaria, such as in Laurie Garrett's The Coming Plague, it is clear that the suspension of spraying programs was unrelated to any environmental concerns. In fact, DDT continued to be the insecticide of choice in the battle against malaria as recently as 1994, some 30 years after the alleged ban, in areas where it was still effective (Curtis).
...There were suspensions in the spraying programs, but they were not the result of any "environmental hysteria". To understand what actually happened, it is necessary to learn about the realities of pesticide use. One of the major problems with using pesticides is that insect populations soon develop resistance to the chemicals. Insects resistant to DDT began appearing one year after its first public health use (Garrett, page 50). As new insecticides were introduced, resistance to them also developed. Much of Silent Spring is a cataloging of reports of resistance to insecticides.
….(deleted for space)
…. As early as 1967 it was clear that the effort had failed, and in 1972 the official policy shifted from eradication to control of malaria1967 it was clear that the effort had failed, and in 1972 the official policy shifted from eradication to control of mala.
"Some anti-environmentalists" - hmmm, so questioning the wisdom in banning DDT amounts to anti-environmentalism - typical leftist hyperbole, so the author's credibility is already in question

"led to a resurgence resulting in thousands of deaths" - thousands?, try millions - as reported by the World Health Organization approx 1 million die from malaria a year. Another whack at the author's credibility.

If DDT use was already being scaled back due to "insect resistance", why was the Environmental Defense Fund founded in 1967 with the express purpose of banning DDT. I already noted the complete bias shown by the EPA director Ruskleshaus who himself was a member of the EDF - can anyone say "conflict of interest" when he overturned the judge who actually HEARD the testimony of experts and ruled the evidence was not there to support a ban of DDT. This same Ruskleshaus who solicited donations for the EDF.

Interesting that the author failed to mention another HUGE reason that DDT use was curtailed - donor organizations refused to contribute money for malaria prevention if DDT was used. So countries that were dependent upon donations and grants to PAY for malaria preventive measures had no choice but to use other, less effective means since they couldn't pay for DDT themselves.(i.e. USAID, UN Development Programme, NORAD, and SIDA - per Malaria World Internationale)

Finally, if environmentalists really had so little to do with the banning/scaling back of DDT, why do they consistently tout it as either a huge environmental victory or an ongoing struggle?(EDF, Sierra Club, WWF, and so on)

Symptoms include foggy brains, dead brains, and leaking body fluids that eventually cause body death....

Wingnuts Expose Leftist Google Group Before It Can Conquer America

Pity the poor wingnuts. They worked so hard to bust ACORN into a million pieces and salt the earth so no part of it would ever grow back. Little did they know that the Progressive Menace was just using ACORN as a distraction while it rebuilt the most fearsome of all anti-American organizations dedicated to spreading leftist propaganda like the Ebola virus: JournoList, which has been reconstituted as a closed Google Group called Gamechanger Salon. And the conservative website Mediatrackers.org is ON IT.

...Congrats to Mediatrackers.org for this shocking discovery that reporters who cover the left wing of American politics might want to interact with activists of that wing in order to find out and report on what the left wing is actually doing. We look forward to the group’s next big scoopy scoop that the sun sets in the west.

S&P rationale for the downgrade
On August 5, 2011, representatives from S&P announced the company's decision to give its first-ever downgrade to U.S. sovereign debt, lowering the rating one notch to "AA+", with a negative outlook.

Governance and policy-making stability
S&P was direct in its criticism of the governance and policy-making process, which took the U.S. to the brink of default as part of the 2011 U.S. debt-ceiling crisis that same week:

"More broadly, the downgrade reflects our view that the effectiveness, stability, and predictability of American policymaking and political institutions have weakened at a time of ongoing fiscal and economic challenges to a degree more than we envisioned when we assigned a negative outlook to the rating on April 18, 2011. Since then, we have changed our view of the difficulties in bridging the gulf between the political parties over fiscal policy, which makes us pessimistic about the capacity of Congress and the Administration to be able to leverage their agreement this week into a broader fiscal consolidation plan that stabilizes the government's debt dynamics any time soon."

"The political brinksmanship of recent months highlights what we see as America's governance and policymaking becoming less stable, less effective, and less predictable than what we previously believed. The statutory debt ceiling and the threat of default have become political bargaining chips in the debate over fiscal policy. Despite this year's wide-ranging debate, in our view, the differences between political parties have proven to be extraordinarily difficult to bridge, and, as we see it, the resulting agreement fell well short of the comprehensive fiscal consolidation program that some proponents had envisaged until quite recently. Republicans and Democrats have only been able to agree to relatively modest savings on discretionary spending while delegating to the Select Committee decisions on more comprehensive measures. It appears that for now, new revenues have dropped down on the menu of policy options. In addition, the plan envisions only minor policy changes on Medicare and little change in other entitlements, the containment of which we and most other independent observers regard as key to long-term fiscal sustainability."

Uhmmm, one would presume that the protocols broke down, perhaps if one looked at the environment that the protocols were being implemented under one would better understand that well versed does not translate into well implemented day after day, hour after hour, minute after minute. Perhaps a rational person might consider that those on the scene may have been overwhelmed while working under less than ideal conditions, while trying to maintain well versed protocols.

Or a fear monger might not consider any of this.
