Perry says coal-fired power plants important in US future

Really, Eva Braun, Hitler's girlfriend. At least that is a new insult.But then insults are the last refuge of the losers. Your last attempt to avoid facing the fact that the UN numbers have never been accurate. So quoting accurately inaccurate numbers is still inaccurate. I love to see how you link what I said to racist unless it was an attempt to link the idea of disagreeing with you as a racist act. Problem with that is that is reaching. If there is the massive growth then you should be able to provide evidence. More than your empty claims. that there is. The fact is that no matter how much you want to believe, there isn't massive growth and in fact the number of green jobs is shrinking. In part because it is becoming obvious that the federal government isn't going to sink money into it No federal grants from the EPA or other such agencies to pay for the fantasy. States like California are still claiming that they are going to invest, but investors are looking and it is becoming obvious that they do not have the money to invest in all of these fantasies.  (Jul 11, 2017 | post #60)

You first. Actually, anyone can compare numbers and the numbers would prove how wrong you are. If you want me to back up my numbers, then you are first going to have to back up your numbers instead of trying to dismiss them as BS. ANd remember, how many people can think back to how bad the air quality was during the last olympics in Beijing. As for a single failed solar company, which one did I reference since there are so many. Was it Solyndra, Sunedison, or one of the many others who have flopped. No matter how loudly you care to shout it, the fact is the green jobs. I also notice3d that you need someone to quote from the links they provided. Does that mean your to lazy to read them. FYI, the links and the articles they contain are the quotes. Maybe you were to scared to read them. Afraid to face the fact that renewable jobs are drying up as the companies you thought would provide them died. As for the climate has never changed at the rate it is now, it has changed much quicker. There is plenty of evidence to back that up. Instead of hurling insults and the like, you should take the time to actually learn about the subject. Then again, you might have to face facts that you do not want to. That your fantasy is dying. And the reason for boilerplate, is because you and others like you tend to use the same tired old fantasies.  (Jul 11, 2017 | post #59)

Solyndra, Sunedison, and numerous other companies that they were pinning those numbers on have since gone out of business" is an illustration of how you can go from employed to unemployed which is the opposite of job growth in that sector. What you are hoping is a industry shakeout is actually an industry collapsing in on itself. Just like it happened back in the 80's. Just like how in the 70's they proclaimed a scientific consensus. Just like in the 50's they proclaimed a scientific consensus that the earth was warming and by the turn of the century that mankind would be extinct if they did not act soon. The same old claims that the end of world is going to happen if we did not change.  (Jul 11, 2017 | post #58)

In your case3, the horse is not only dead, but has been whipped into a frothy mess. I notice that you did not include anything like a link, title or anything else. So, while I have such for sources such as the NYT, Newsweek, and other, I am not going to include them.  (Jul 11, 2017 | post #12)

I see you love to recycle denial. Should I plaster your screen with examples of consensus in the 70's on the subject of an approaching ice age? Or how about the 1920's when they also had a supposed consensus on the very same subject. I can also recycle those arguments as long as your recycling your arguments.  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #8)

And by 2012 the UN numbers were clearly not happening. Solyndra, Sunedison, and numerous other companies that they were pinning those numbers on have since gone out of business. Even a couple of years after Job Monkey posted that link, the green job revolution you preened about were obviously not going to be there. It sounds like I have to simplify what I am telling you since you seem to be unable or unwilling to grasp the most basic of facts. http://ndn.org/blo g/2011/07/green-jo bs-not-materializi ng-quickly-anticip ated http://www.slate.c om/articles/health _and_science/green _room/2009/03/bark ing_up_the_wrong_t ree.html http://www.ocregis ter.com/2011/08/26 /editorial-green-j obs-revealed-as-fi scal-black-hole/  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #32)

Really, Huffington Post. Well I would provide a better source but if you're going going with a biased source. As for making facts up, why should you be allowed to make things up out of whole cloth or use things that others have just made up. And you really should look into an anger management program. :-). Plus I have no problem driving stick, operating servers, and raising three wonderful kids. http://nlpc.org/20 12/06/01/obamas-gr een-jobs-dont-mate rialize/  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #31)

Insults, the hallmark of the loser. And if you want my numbers, you have to first provide the numbers to back your claims. And please tell everyone how being against wind and solar is being racist? :)  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #30)

You state your sources first. China does have environmental problems and they are not looking to wind or solar, but they are building dams to provide hydroelectric. Which is a rational way, not like those who keep denying the fatal flaws in solar and wind. You really should do some serious research before making any more claims. Resources for reliable sources instead of those who chant the lies you like to hear. Climate change is not only real, but has been happening for thousands of years. China is switching to hydroelectric because the geographic nature of their country. As for the Netherlands, have you seriously looked at their economy. It is oil based. Take away that North Sea Crude and their economy would implode. In addition, you seemed to miss that they are not switching to renewables as fast as you think they are. The last time the price of oil dropped, they had serious economic problems. As for Germany, they are now having energy issues. Sunny California is in even worse shape. They import a third of the electricity they use. Which means that their renewables are falling far short of their needs. And they have been doing it for decades. Remember a little company called ENRON who arranged for that state to have blackouts and brownouts. As for the insults, I have always maintained that those who have to rely on insults are admitting that they have lost the fight. And notice that I, unlike you provided plenty of sources to back up what I have said this time. So, please remember Hutchinson's Razor, " Anything proved without facts can be disproved without facts." And no, your word based on your highly biased beliefs is not proof. http://nltimes.nl/ 2016/03/31/netherl ands-lagging-behin d-eu-countries-ren ewable-energy https://phys.org/n ews/2016-06-nether lands-ready-smart- sustainable-energy .html https://www.techno logyreview.com/s/6 01514/germany-runs -up-against-the-li mits-of-renewables / https://www.econom ist.com/blogs/econ omist-explains/201 4/12/economist-exp lains-10 https://www.forbes .com/sites/judecle mente/2016/04/03/c alifornias-growing -imported-electric ity-problem/#40f70 f464469  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #29)

Regulations, taxes, mandates, and a host of other things. For example, the $15 a hour may sound great to the uninformed, but it causes prices to rise which hurts consumers and on top of it all, positions and hours are cut which hurts employees and leaves some of them unemployed. As for the ACA, the deadbeats without insurance, many of them just opted to pay the fine and remain without insurance. Often because they did not want the insurance. As for hospitals not being in many rural counties, hospitals being driven into bankruptcy, you should look at the whole picture. A large portion of the reason why is the result of DNC favorite people, the trial lawyers. Another reason is the amount of red tape that is the result of government bureaucrats, lovers of big government. The fact is that when Obama left office, it was obvious that the ACA was already imploding. And notice that it was entirely a democrat creation. The republicans were wise enough to not touch it all all. As for the coal jobs not coming back, you better check yor facts and not rely on wishful thinking. http://fortune.com /2017/04/07/coal-m ining-jobs/  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #21)

Winding down, like solar and wind are winding down. And before you start bloviating that they are not, the numbers say they are. The only gullible were those who thought you can replace coal and oil with wind and solar. The modern world needs a 24/7 source of power that can provide just as much power at midnight as it can at noon. Provide just as much power in january as it does in july. Coal can do that, hydro can do that. Wind and solar have not and can not because they are at the mercy of the weather. A cold still winter's night while lovely to look at would leave people in the dark and shivering with wind and solar, wishing they had a few lumps of coal to burn to stay warm. You talk about Trump being unable to bring all those coal jobs back, yet you are ignoring that Obama promised green jobs that never happened.  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #24)

Are you really that clueless. Go back and take a look at the Beijing Olympics. Take all th3e pollution fro London and add L.A. and then double it and you would still fall short of Beijing's air pollution. As far as renewables, the Chinese are not trying to replace those coal fired power plants with solar panels and wind generators. China is being smarter in that they use them to power far flung locations such as villages that have little or no access to electricity. The reason why they are not trying to power a major population center with solar or wind is that they are not reliable enough for that. Powering a remote village or police post to fill a water tank and provide some electrical lights, solar and wind are good enough. Powering a factory or a server farm where you need 24/7 reliable power, sorry, but solar and wind are not up to and will never be up to that. No matter how bad your denial about it is.  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #23)

If that was true, then why are the workers and consumers most often hurt by what the democrats have done. More of the workers end up unemployed. If yo0u want to say I am wrong, ask those who worked in coal mines what the democrat candidate for president had planned for them. Who ends up taking more of the consumer's money with taxing them and insisting that they cannot purchase this or must purchase that. And before you say I am wrong, who voted for the ACA. Insisting that people who did not want to buy health care insurance had to buy it.  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #18)

As I have also pointed out to the AGW crowd, consensus is a political and not a scientific term. Often the term consensus is used as pseudoscience to push a political agenda. It was the consensus in the 70's for example that the world had been cooling and the next cycle of glaciers would be here by the turn of the century. Instead of the prediction, the world was whining about AGW with that crowd claiming that the scientific consensus supported their claim. The actual data says that we are warming since the end of the mini ice age and the world is warmer than it was at the end of the last ice age. While I am willing to agree that the earth will see another ice age if not several more in it's future, it is not right around the corner.  (Jul 10, 2017 | post #4)
