Power shift is too much too soon
and could prove impossible task

Telegraph [UK], by Peter Atherton

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/18/2012 4:06:30 PM

Let me explain how we landed on the edge of an energy crisis. Back in 2003 the European Union issued a Directive aimed at battling climate change. It set very challenging targets for the reduction of CO2 across the whole of the EU and allocated these targets to individual countries. These targets have key milestones that must be achieved by 2020 and 2030. Governments across Europe recognised that in order to meet these targets the burden of reducing CO2 would need to fall largely on electricity generation as the other major sectors that emit large quantities of CO2, households and

Good review of some of the problems with EU energy policies but not a hint that "man made" Global Warming and CO2 capture or reduction is possibly false science.

The fact that CO2 is entirely harmless apparently never occurred to them.

Gore is back on his moronic soapbox again. Must be he wants the US to join the European idiots so he can be the first VP to become a billionaire once he´s left office. How come there´s no stories about using more than HIS fair share of energy? Hmmmm?

Taliban suicide bombers’ siege of
western guesthouse ends after three
U.S. hostages are freed by Afghan
security officials who kill five insurgents
Daily Mail, by Sara Malm    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/28/2014 7:24:23 PM     Post Reply
More than a dozen foreign nationals, including several children, had to be evacuated from a guesthouse used by a U.S.-based aid group in Kabul, after armed Taliban insurgents stormed the building and took at least four people hostage. The hostages, which were said to have included three U.S. citizens, were trapped inside for at least an hour before Afghan security officials ended the siege in the upmarket residential area of the capital. At least one Afghan child and five Taliban insurgents died during the operation, a military official said after the battle was over, adding that all hostages are now safe.

Can Obama Saudi visit

Relations between Washington and its long-standing ally Saudi Arabia have sharply declined in recent months over US policy in the Middle East--now even a visit to Riyadh by President Obama might do little to narrow the differences, reports the BBC´s Kim Ghattas in Washington. US officials briefing reporters ahead of the trip have said little of substance about what they expect, other than to say it is very important. Ben Rhodes, the president´s deputy national security adviser, did acknowledge that there were disagreements between the two countries. One of them has already put a small damper on the trip. On

Nigel Farage has accused the European Union of having "blood on its hands" over the Ukraine. Does that sound over the top? [Snip] Well, that was the EU´s plan and it has been working on it for some time. The Ukraine was to form the jewel in the crown of the EU´s Eastern Partnership programme, which would see Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus brought closer to the bosom of the EU. This was what David Cameron was endorsing last year when, at the time of Croatia´s accession to the EU, he described his dream of seeing a European

   

 

  


 
As King Abdullah’s power base

King Abdullah is paramount leader of the House of Saud and master of a fifth of the world’s oil reserves, but he does a good impression of being a simple man. When he was Crown Prince, his tent was open to just about any male Saudi, so long as they were not too flamboyantly deferential. An obsequious petitioner would receive a prod from Abdullah’s bamboo camel cane. “You’re a man,” he would mutter. “What are you doing grovelling on the floor?” The Saudi king is unlikely to have this problem today when he receives President Barack Obama in Riyadh. Yes,

Obama´s ´Incredible Mistake´ over
Phantom Kosovo Referendum
Breitbart London [UK], by Raheem Kassam, Andre Walker    Original Article

U.S. President Barack Obama has caused confusion after claiming yesterday that Kosovo held a UN-assisted referendum for self-determination--misleading people over the true origins of the country. The U.S. President used the example to hit out against Russia´s annexation of Crimea, but experts have noted that no such referendum took place, and implied that Obama´s "incredible mistake" should elicit a retraction or correction from the White House. [Snip] One source said the faux-pas was "the very last thing Kosovo and Serbia need" as the two seek to strengthen relations. Obama said in his speech yesterday: "...Kosovo only left Serbia after a

Breitbart London has learned that President Obama has undermined Georgia’s NATO membership application, in the second foreign policy gaffe of his European trip this week. Speaking at the press conference after the EU-US summit yesterday the US President wrongly suggested that Georgia “is not currently on a path to NATO membership”. In fact the country has been on the path to membership since 2008.[Snip] The mistake comes after Breitbart London revealed that Obama had wrongly claimed “Kosovo only left Serbia after a referendum was organised not outside the boundaries of international law, but in careful cooperation with the United States

New approach to blasting Obamacare: Congressional

Alabama congressional hopeful Will Brooke blows holes into a copy of the Affordable Care Act with three different guns in a new campaign ad, saying he wants to ´see how much damage we can do to this copy of Obamacare.´ Before resorting to a wood chipper decorated with a campaign sticker, the Republican candidate fires at the 1,000-page health insurance law with a .40 caliber Glock pistol, a .270 caliber Cooper rifle and an AR-15. The Daily Caller was first to report on the controversial campaign video, but Brooke isn´t the first to put guns in a political campaign ad.

Three very opinionated and unimpressed New York-based grandmas (who happen to be sisters) have voiced their strong disapproval of Beyonce and Kanye West´s duet, Drunk in Love. Twins Mary and Terese, both 81, and Josie, 73, all hairdressers who were raised in The Bronx and call themselves the Golden Sisters, have enjoyed rapid Internet fame for their sassy observations on the worldwide number one hit song. The amusing video, uploaded earlier this month to YouTube, has already garnered over 130,000 views. It features the sisters chatting candidly over lunch while reading out the lyrics to the song and discussing its

A former White House assistant press secretary has lashed out at the White House taking specific aim on the office of the First Lady. Reid Cherlin has written an article for The New Republic criticizing the overly structured way that Michelle Obama´s team handles her schedule and even the way the First Lady herself deals with her staff. He said that in addition to the internal politics that comes with a group of eager staffers trying to curry favor with Mrs Obama, a good deal of the drama comes as a result of ´the exacting but often ambivalent leadership style of the

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

The economic costs of ´global warming´ have been grossly overestimated, a leaked report--shortly to be published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)--has admitted. [Snip] This admission by the IPCC will come as a huge blow to those alarmists--notably the Stern Review´s author but also including everyone from the Prince of Wales to Al Gore--who argue that costly intervention now is our only hope if we are to stave off the potentially disastrous effects of climate change. Sir Nicholas (now Lord) Stern was commissioned by Tony Blair´s Labour government to analyse the economic impacts of climate

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors.

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay.

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
