India Defies the Dictator: Accuses Obama of ‘Carbon Imperialism’
As Delhi rushes to boost its coal generation to satisfy rocketing energy demands, John Kerry’s decision to single out India as a “challenge” provokes fury
(Telegraph) – It’s rush hour in the world’s most polluted city, and just visible through the dense blanket of smog is an electronic billboard informing motorists that the air quality has dropped from “very poor” to “severe”.
If this were Beijing an emergency would be declared, with schools closed for the day and production at factories halted. But here in Delhi, judging by faces barely visible behind anti-pollution masks, nobody seems to have noticed.
When John Kerry, the US secretary of state, last week singled out the country most likely to pose a “challenge” to climate change talks at Paris, it wasn’t China he named – it was India.
On top of the carbon-spewing traffic that clogs the Indian capital’s streets, that challenge comes in the enormous form of the 1.5bn tonnes of coal the country aims to extract annually by 2020. That is double its current output.

Death By Tea Party
(Tea Party) – It was never the intentions of the Tea Party to target the Democratic Party for demolition, but instead to contain and eliminate socialism within the ranks of America.
The Tea Party mantra of smaller government and lower taxes flew in the face of those who believed big government was the answer, and that higher taxes were a tool for the redistribution of wealth. Little did anyone realize the big-government, high-tax crowd had infested the Democratic Party, and by default the Tea Party unknowingly eviscerated the Democratic Party by electing literally thousands of conservative candidates from dog-catchers, to Senators and Governors. This paradigm shift filled the ranks of the conservative movement and ripped from the clutches of the socialists the power they so lusted after. The result being that the Democrat Party was slowly crushed under its own socialist doctrine.
At one time the Democrat Party would beat their chest and bellow that they owned the dinosaur media and controlled major universities, filling the heads of young, hungry students with socialist doctrines and big government cures. But the liberal socialists didn’t stop there with their bombastic blathering, as they also invented issues out of thin air such as climate change, a.k.a. ‘global warming’ and the war on women, all the while protecting the rights of the mother to kill her baby.
Keyboard bullies, the dinosaur media, the silent treatment, and of course the all-time favorite nonsensical ridicule seemed to be the magic silver bullet to kill the Tea Party, but it appears the political gun has backfired, mortally wounding the attacker while the Tea Party lives on unscathed......(MORE)
