Moonbats Explain Liberal Energy Policy

If we’re not allowed to drill for our own oil or even build pipelines to transport oil from Canada, how will we meet our energy needs? Moonbats in Lincoln, Nebraska provide their answers:

On a tip from Shawn.

    Hyperbole! And the southern strategy.

  • Turbo

    Wow! I want me one o’ dem magic sand box thingies that makes energy for your home for like, life and stuff, and for only like, ummm $50,000!

    SUBJECT CHANGE:

    Just because you have an American Citizenship doesn’t protect you from your seditious actions and its consequences.
    As far as I am concerned, once you engage in seditious activity, you have lost your American Citizenship.

    I think this is what the moonbat was referring to when he said sand box.

    It utilizes a wide range of fuels; traditional fuel, natural gas, renewable fuel. Biomass gas, landfill gas, ethanol, pretty much whatever you have on hand.

    According to Bloom, the Energy Servers will cut CO2 emissions by 40%-100% compared to the U.S. grid

    It basically sounds like an expensive generator that runs on gas. It’s main purpose is to reduce harmless CO2 emissions. Great. I’m sure Obama will be funneling our money through this company soon enough.

    One of the big objections to the tar sands is that it kills a lot of birds when they bathe and drink in toxic water near the operation.

    The US gov. is starting legal action against some oil companies for 28 dead birds.

    I work in the wine industry and last year I personally cleaned up hundreds of dead birds that got caught in the nets we use to keep birds out of the crop.

    That’s hundreds of birds/vineyard * hundreds of vineyards every year. But the oil industry gets in shit for 28 dead birds.

    Anyone want to guess why the oil guys are vilified and I get a free pass?

  • Steve

    Thanks, Dave. Good to know there are kooks in my hometown.

  • ROFLCOPTER DOWN

    Bloom already has eBay ang google as customers – if you don’t think the nations biggest dot com companies are pushing an ultra liberal pro gay agenda you would be mistaken.

    They want to have powerful connections in government, like all big companies do, the problem is, google and Facebook are even more incidious because of their unique ability to push out propaganda or try and slant public opinion in favor of their liberal democrat allies.

    Moonbat energy havinga bunch of them pedding stationary bicycles maybe about 40 of them pedling real hard so their kids can be brainwahed by those annoying CAPTIAN PLANET marathons on EARTH DAY

    I dunno, I feel bad for retarded kids. Oh there not…what the…? Never mind.

    Fewer jobs—we cry

    No water—we die

    Think about the absolute absurdity of that statement for a second…..

    First off you’re comparing something that you may have fewer of with something you have nothing of. Right off the bat, it is an invalid comparison. Correcting that, let’s say we have No Jobs—then guess what—without an income you can’t easily obtain food or water AND YOU DIE.

    As for the water aspect, last I checked about 3/4 of the surface of the planet was covered in water. We have more than enough H2O—AND the ability to even treat seawater for potable use. I should know, I’m in the water treatment business.

    Ill-informed leftist bedwetters shouldn’t be dressing up as The Reaper and spouting such utter nonsense. The more I see of this, the more I’m convinced that liberalism really is an incurable mental disorder.

  • Bob Roberts

    Apparently moonbats have discovered something that can only be called “perpetual motion”.

    Read what they say:

    The first bit that jumps out at me is this:

    “The company, Bloom Energy has been unusually secretive.”

    The article goes on to say:

    “Of course there’s not even a prototype for the home yet”

    But wait, there’s more!

    Fuel Cell technology has been far too expensive for home use and although not available to consumers yet, Bloom Energy said they are developing a brick-sized energy server for powering homes for $2,000 – $3,000 within the next 5-10 years.

    Bloom Energy has filed patents in recent years that could set it future devices apart from the competition. The patents describe a process for taking the runoff of the main electricity generation – carbon dioxide and water – and using it to produce oxygen and a “methane-like fuel,” he said. This would essentially reverse the chemical reaction in the Bloom Box (a possibility Sridhar hinted at on 60 Minutes). Which in turn, that new fuel and oxidant could be automatically run through the Bloom Box to generate even more electricity – and less waste.

    I wonder how many billions of our tax dollars are being wasted on this nonsense by the obamunists?

    Clearly this is merely another scam involving alleged perpetual motion ever.

    Now the “runoff”, described as CO2 and H2O, is to be used to make methane and water? Methane is CH4. So I guess the idea is to take one mole of CO2 and 2 moles of water and magically turn them into one mole of CH4 and 2 moles of oxygen? I suppose this is supposed to happen without any energy cost? Unfortunately in the real world things don’t work that way. In the real world it takes energy to break apart and rearrange these molecules and you always get less out in the end than you put in due to thermal and other losses along the way.

    So, again, I wonder how many billions of our tax dollars are being wasted on this nonsense by the obamunists?

    Note an incomplete change: Was going to say “This is the best scam involving perpetual motion ever.” and then changed it but forgot to take off the “ever”.

    Because greeniac lib-tards hate fossil fuels and love to get drunk?

  • Jimbo

    Looking in the background of the video – there must have been… what… 25 protesters?

    The sand-box moron who was refusing oil because it is evidently pushed on him as the only means of power… why is he smoking a cigarette – a sign of pure evil (to a liberal)? Doesn’t he know that it took fossil fuels to cultivate, harvest, prepare, ship, and deliver that evil white stick to his sucking lips?

    In a capitalist society, people rule with their wallets. I guess, like 99% of liberals, he doesn’t want the responsibility of making such hard-ass decisions. He wants, like, a cool $50k sandbox on a $25K home that, like, is paid for by, like, rich people.

    In the mean time, DUDE, good luck with your cat and the sandbox – and don’t start a forest fire with that evil cancer stick!

    I went to the hearing in Port Arthur – this is the forth public hearing in the area – the same people on the liberl fear and loathing crowd showed up for the last 2 hearing and read poetry or said they knew peopl that lived near a refinery and died of Cancer, read the same prepared scipts, said people that suppport the line are stupid. I think the GOVT wants to talk this line to death. the old days a permit took 9 months to get all enviro and route approved. Thne it went to 15 months and industryk complained so GOVT promised to do it in 8 months (but industry must turn in all the data wiht applicaion), The time held for a few years then it went to 18 months – for this one keystone is 36 months. Busines sfriendly. By the way this oil is so thick (more like tar than water) that if it leaks it will not penetrate the sub szoil and go into the water spply. it will come up through the loose back fill and will make a mound like a nasty cow patty. The libeerals feel emotion and are not open to discussion of indivitual facts inside their dogma. I am a retired pipeline engineer and manager and i trired to visit with them while we waited to speak – i tried to talk to them on the issue of leaks – only one of tow seemed to understand my explanaion – but most seemed to think that one leak would stop all irrigation in the mid west.
    What wazs striking at this hearing was the number of people looking for jobs.

    Well building exactly along the same lines as anon, above @: 9/30/11 20:13 PDT. What about this Green Energy wind turbines killing bald eagles? (Courtesy of mjperry.blogspot.com)By American Bird Conservancy, where these chosen “green” Wind mills are grinding up 50 birds/hour, 1200 birds per day. But, what do we hear from the powers that be? That’s right, we hear only crickets! Could this have something to do with these bird grinders being provided by Government Electric? I don’t know, I can only guess as to why that industry is so protected. Though, always best to follow the money: Friends and contributors in low places.Really, there is no such thing as “Green Energy.” When we have “Political scientists” making all the decisions: Dictating the winners and losers; Controlling the education policies, etc. This idiot above, is the final product. I still think that there should be a national requirement that all students minimally complete an introductory course on thermodynamics. Perhaps, that would put a stop to this crap?

  • batman

    Kudos also to engineer Bob Roberts! A little p-chem, and a little thermo, goes along way, doesn’t it?

  • A. Levy

    For decades, the hard-core Left had worked to do away with the long-standing concept of majority rule in America. Why? So that a relative handful of left-wing EnviroNazi’s and their hand-picked leftist judges out in Mexifornia could dictate policy, and affect the everyday lives of 320 million people.

    And the response from We The People? Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z-Z! In the end, we deserve everything they do to us.

    I’ve driven thru Lincoln plenty of times. These intellectually undeveloped people weren’t anywhere in sight in the mid to late 80′s. I’m thinking they are the offspring of my generation, a generation whose women came of age reading Erica Jong, Germaine Greer and Shere Hite. What a messed up generation from which I came. What a bunch of messed up issue from my generation. None were mine.

    keep tokin’

    With my current average electrical usage the breakeven for this magical sand box at $50,000 a unit would be thirty years. Just to break even at TODAY’S electric rates. Allowing for inflation that might come down to around 25 years. I’m 66 years old. I’ll probably be dead by the time this thing breaks even. Stupid.

    Oh yeah, BTW… what’s the useful life of this magic sand box, eh? Probably 20 to 30 years. So it craps out just as it breaks even. Wow I guess he thinks that’s a good deal huh? Asshat.

  • Mr. S

    ahh ahh we should grow lots of weed and burn it to power powerplants ahhh.

  • hiram

    I want my Magic Sandbox ™…. where do I get it? Lefty trolls, can you give me a link?
