Between conservatives focusing all their attention on the successes/failures of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., and the left having a meltdown over the supposed “racism” and unprecedented disrespect of Clint Eastwood’s “Empty Chair” routine, little attention has been given to an executive order issued last Thursday by President Barack Obama that targets industrial “efficiency” and carbon emissions.
“Today, we are taking another step to strengthen American manufacturing by boosting energy efficiency for businesses across the nation,” said President Obama.
“This action will cut costs, increase efficiency, and help our businesses create strong, middle class jobs. We’ll continue to do everything we can to put more people back to work and build an economy that lasts,” he added.
The order, which aims to increase the number of cogeneration plants in the U.S. by 50 percent by 2020 and slash carbon emissions by 150 million tons per year, is the administration’s latest effort to “deploy cleaner and more efficient energy production in the country by working around political resistance to climate change and ‘green’ energy legislation on Capitol Hill,” Reuters reports.
a little too late arent ya...why couldnt he do something good for the people and not just himself. surprised he hasnt made an exec order on a specific day to go golfing. what a useless prez we have. he is just trying to do enough good for a small amount of time to get the votes. he will fool some, but wont fool me.
THESE EXECUTIVE ORDERS BYPASS CONGRESS, ARE POLITICALLY MOTIVATED FOR THE ELECTION, AND PROBABLY WILL COSTS MANUFACTURERS MILLIONS, WHICH WILL PREVENT HIRING AND EXPANSION. ALSO IF YOU LOOK INTO MANY OF THESE GREEN POLICIES, THEY WILL HAVE LITTLE EFFECT ON THE AIR QUALITY.
this is another UNCONSTITUTIONAL EXECUTIVE ORDER issued (dictated) by this "president" congress must confront these executive orders and recind them.
Another "Executive Order" huh? He's going to create more middle class jobs by mandating even more regulations on an already overburdened system (thanks to EPA) manufacturing? Ya gotta be kidding????? Anyone who believes this BS deserves everything they get. Just keep writing them checks BO. It doesn't matter if the bank account is overdrawn. Just isssue another executive order to fix it.....What a moron.
Jerome Corsi was on Coast to Coast AM with George Noori discussing how he believes the U.S. will be the top oil producer by 2017.
This nations first black president ( not counting Bill Clinton ) has proven that any energy , including green is obviously better than black energy . I say that because evreytime he anounces something to increase efficiency and jobs the result is , in fact , just the opposite . Please do not take this as racism , I am NOT a racist . I am merely making a play on words because of the REAL effect of green jobs , which is higher unemployment and lower wages .
I believe Clinton was more black than Obama.HUH?
He is just doing crap last minute to help himdelf look good. Sorry you fraudulent reject, we see what you are doing and just like his move with immigration. This guy makes me sick.
I wish he would issue an executive order to vanish from the world.Maybe he will vanish to Hawaii in january 20th 2013.I can dream cant I?
More obama, treason.
Haven't we witnessed enough bull**** green energy(Solyndra) in America.To get companies up to his standards will increase cost to millions and what does that get?More unemployed.Green energy is 3 times more expensive to manufacture then implement.King Hussein Obama is on a mission to destroy America. We have to fight harder than ever before to get this socialist/communist out of office.
Can't we just send him the fat as**d bit** the 2 O'bummer jrs and the dog to the first penal colony on Mars ,yeah another first for O'crakhead!
