SOTU: Other “Promising” Industries, in Addition to Clean Energy

by William Yeatman on January 25, 2012

Last night, President Barack Obama said that it’s time “to double-down on a clean energy industry that never has been more promising.”

Below, I reprint an excellent response to the President’s green energy nonsense, by Dr. David Kreutzer, Research Fellow in Energy Economics and Climate Change at the Heritage Foundation.

Saying the clean energy industry has never been more promising is damning with faint praise.  The following have also never been more promising than they are right now:

  • Time travel
  • Anti-gravity boots
  • Teleportation
  • Smart pills
  • Everything-proof force fields
  • Flying cars and
  • High-speed rail

Why does Obama want to double down on just clean energy and high-speed rail?

From Obama’s 2012 StateoftheUnionAddress; ONLY one mention of climate change (crisis):
“The differences in this chamber may be too deep right now to pass a comprehensive plan to fight climate change. But there’s no reason why Congress shouldn’t at least set a clean energy standard that creates a market for innovation.” –This is a crisis?
And NO mention of climate change in his 2011 StateoftheUnionAddress either.
Occupywallstreet’s list of demands does not include climate change because of the bank funded CARBON TRADING STOCK MARKETS and governments taxing the air we breathe. Climate change money would be better spent on real people.
Yes pollution is real but CO2 fears were not. Now we can preserve, protect and respect the planet instead of holding the CO2 gun to our children’s heads.
