GOP wants to stick with what is destroying us and our world

GOP wants to stick with what is destroying us and our worldObama wants to evolve toward an uncertain futureThis is the actualityAnd if it remains so the election will be closeand we will risk a GOP victory
We could content ourselves with working with the reality noted aboveHammer Mitt with multiple reasonsHope that Barack can prevail by his good intentions

Let me state the above more stronglyThe choice is KochWorld versus creating a new sustainable societyKochWorld is where we all liveIt is sprawlIt is carsIt is oilIt is pollutionIt is tar sandsIt is culture as we know it
President Obama mustsay sustainableHe must articulate that his policy isBeyond sprawland beyond everything elsein KochWorld 
If we end up regurgitating becauseRomney wonwe have one consolationHistory is on our sideI hope the President gambles on the prescience of the American people

Kevin's Place It Takes a Turbine

Kevin's Place: "Doing just a sampling the build out would take the next decade to build out if all gasoline and transportation fuels were exchanged for hydrogen.  A workforce just for the turbines and electrolyzers would be 7,500,000 workers and to handle replacement parts and maintenance as well the workforce over that same time period would add an additional 1,500,000 workers.

"To also replace the nuclear, natural gas, coal fired energy generation would add an additional 2,750,000 workers over the next decade of build out.  Many more jobs with grid build out and new connections would benefit as well.

"These estimations are also adding additional workforce for the establishment of localized energy storage of ammonia systems to support baseline and overage during peak power periods to avoid blackouts and brownouts.

"To also include all the workforce to convert the cars, trucks and other transportation over to hydrogen would involve additional millions of worker…

Barack Obama is a hoops guy. Barack Obama knows how to score points.

I'm grading his performance on suggestions I made in October 2010:
1. Introduce the idea of Sherlock Holmes in talking about the War on Terror. Get people ready for a coming move from reliance of military might. (A Three Pointer.) B+
2. Beat up on criminal bankers and their kith and kin. It is our money they are taking on the train to New Canaan, Greenwich and Stamford. (Slam dunk.) C-
3. Get specific about regulatory controls. Talk about leverage ratios. Say what's been done and what's needed. No general statements about Wall Street Reform. People don't believe it's happened yet. (Several lay ups needed.) B-
4. Propose contests. For example, a contest to design or create from existing areas 21st century neighborhoods of 5-10,000 persons. Reduced vehicular traffic, safety and security, connect everything with pedestrian ways, include many "squares" and plazas and small parks. Talk about safe places for kids to play. (Lay up.) D
5. Tax on all market transaction…

The Underlying Conflict of 2012

'Golden age of gas' threatens renewable energy, IEA warns - environmentalresearchweb: "A "golden age of gas" spurred by a tripling of shale gas from fracking and other sources of unconventional gas by 2035 will stop renewable energy in its tracks if governments don't take action, the International Energy Agency has warned.

Gas is now relatively abundant in some regions, thanks to the massive expansion of hydraulic fracturing – fracking – for shale gas, and in some areas the price of the fuel has fallen. The result is a threat to renewable energy, which is by comparison more expensive, in part because the greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels are still not taken into account in the price of energy."

This is what Romney and the Kochs are willing to spend and die for, make no mistake about it.

Progressives need to come out full square on the push-back side. Beyond green. Beyond pattern language. Toward a sustainable and reasonab…

Sarah Palin has rejected Jesus as a role model for Americans

Sarah Palin has rejected Jesus as a role model for Americans and is apparently leaving her church. She is preparing a series of tweets to explain.

"It's true," she told reporters outside her home in Wasilla, AK. "Jesus is is a one-world socialist opposed real American religion. He's weak on defense, permissive on crime and not one of us. He'd destroy national security with his be-platitudes. He's worse than President Obama.  Jesus would probably oppose Israel. I can't accept that."

When a reporter suggested Palin's political career could be ruined, she answered, "Oh really?"

Home Wrecker

"Look," she explained. "I'm a maverick, but I'm not a home wrecker. Jesus' family values were in the cellar. He dissed his mom and his sibs. He accused his dad of desertion."

Palin has not entirely rejected her former beliefs. "I actually believe when people die, a handful will be saved and return here to Alaska.…
