    Problem is, everyone can see that it is a dead dog except the politicians who are pushing 'Green' for all it's worth. At least some of the scientists are now admitting, openly, that Man Made Global warming is a myth. Also admitting that the gasses they have been pumping into the atmosphere to seal the holes in the ozone layer are amongst the most potent greenhouse effect gasses known to man. Guess the idiots have really taken over the asylum.

    To put it mildly, Obama is certainly no J.P. Morgan. Taxpayer funded malinvestments based upon nothing more than wishful thinking, political pressure, and dubious science have diminished this nation's overall vitality and real capital. To make matters worse, abundant king coal has essentially been prohibited from consideration as a fuel source in new energy plants.
