  • Joe Romm on Obama's Jekyll and Hyde energy policy:
    On the one hand, the President clearly stated his Dr. Jekyll commitment to cutting carbon pollution and fighting climate change. But not before he pushed his Mr. Hyde expansion of domestic fossil fuel production, starting early in the speech, where he touted this success: “More oil produced at home than we buy from the rest of the world —the first time that’s happened in nearly twenty years.” [...]

    “Barack Obama has gone from blaming George W. Bush to plagiarizing George W. Bush,” he added.

  • NASA calls on private sector to build lunar landers:
    In 2014, NASA has already outsourced space shuttles and astronaut training to private companies, not to mention the agency has enjoyed huge returns by handing over its ISS cargo runs to SpaceX and Orbital Sciences.

    It should come as no surprise, then, that NASA has decided to open lunar surface exploration to the commercial market. The new initiative is called Lunar CATALYST, which stands for CArgo Transportation And Landing bY Soft Touchdown (a somewhat forced acronym, but the effort is appreciated). It was announced on January 16, but the details weren't hammered out until a teleconference held yesterday.

  • Catholic bishop says he performs exorcisms on gay people because he loves them:
    Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois, took to LifeSiteNews during last week’s March for Life to defend his recent performance of an anti-gay exorcism. The gay rights foe explained that he performed the “minor exorcism” in order to “renounce Satan and break our relationship with the Devil” and “drive out the Devil from his influence that seems to be pervading our culture.” [...]

    Paprocki said that the exorcism was done out of love for gay people, whom he explained need to be disciplined like children being punished by their parents: “Like any good parent will tell you that sometimes you have to disappoint your child, sometimes you have to say ‘no’ and sometimes you even have to punish them.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I am quite fond of winter there, as compared to way up in Canada, where I started life, and find myself now.

    I know first hand how a snow or ice storm can paralyze the city that is not equipped to deal with it.

    Now, I don't want to make light of the current situation, but the scenes of traffic littered everywhere at a standstill and with many crashes, reminds me of setups in The Walking Dead. That series is an Atlanta production, albeit at a different time of year.

    On the show, they are never cold. Oddly enough, the characters are nearly always dressed in long pants, boots, long sleeve shirts. It never seems to occur to anyone on the show: hey, it's Atlanta, it's hot outside, I'm going to wear shorts today.

      Recommended by:

      I'm extremely enthusiastic about using the Moon to send energy back to the Earth. Whether by solar collectors, or a Far Side fusion system using isotope-rich lunar soil, or some other method (eg. gravity/electromagnets exploiting Lunar/Earth orbits).

      But I hope the energy is brought back to the Earth by beaming low-density/wide-footprint lasers to floating sea platforms, interlocked by returned comms lasers with a deadman switch. Maximum of a few times natural solar density, but over large areas, guaranteed 24x7 instead of depending on weather.

      Because otherwise the greedy, treacherous Star Wars "missile defense" industry will get the gig, to point powerful focused energy weapons at the Earth. That would not only be dangerous as an energy network, but rightly terrify unstable (and stable) regimes around the Earth. Probably provoke some desperate countermeasures, even before it went really wrong and burned up the surface in an "accident".

      If we do it right, we can beat those Star Wars swords into manageable energy plowshares.

Our imports at present are more like 55% of our oil consumption.

      increasing domestic oil, gas and coal extraction does exactly zero for energy independence.  Only switching to renewables will do that.

      Just because he's been consistently self-contradictory doesn't mean he isn't self-contradictory.   The criticism is spot on.

      •  Your statement is nonsense (0+ / 0-)
        increasing domestic oil, gas and coal extraction does exactly zero for energy independence.
        To say that sources of energy we are deriving domestically that would otherwise be derived from foreign sources doesn't contribute to energy independence is absurd on the face of it. If you mean long-term we can't depend on those sources that is something else, but don't conflate the two things.
        •  no, it isn't (0+ / 0-)

          it doesn't matter where the oil comes from, we aren't independent of the global price.  Even if all the oil in the world were drilled in the US, the US is still dependent on the price set on global markets and all of the price shocks and instability that come with that.  When a major component of global supply is spread around the world, a disruption anywhere in the world disrupts the supply in the US because it is a global commodity.  Whether they are derived locally or from foreign sources is pretty much irrelevant to any real impacts.

          Unless we are going to impose export controls, the only way to be independent of foreign sources of oil is not to use oil.

          •  But OPEC nations can no longer (0+ / 0-)

            just impulsively jack the price up anymore. With increased U.S. production (along with that from Canada, Mexico and other non-terrorist supporting nations) comes much greater price stability, the markets know there won't be severe disruptions in world supply because there is some flare-up in the Arab world or Venezuela. So even if you lump "price stability" with "independence" stronger domestic production is still a plus.

    Bachmann: Obama 'Not A King' So We'll Sue Him For Executive Actions
    I've seen that meme from several Republican sources.
    "If he wants to move forward with this unilateral activity, he better be prepared for the lawsuit that the United States Congress will bring to him," she said, and the National Journal reported that other GOP lawmakers, including Rep. Steve King (R-IA) also voiced support for legal action.

    A Bachmann aide pointed the Daily Caller to existing legislation, introduced in December by Rep. Tom Rice
    (R-SC), as the potential avenue for instigating a lawsuit against the president. The bill endorses “a civil action for declaratory or injunctive relief to challenge certain policies and actions taken by the executive branch.”

    That would be this:

    That's H.RES.442. It's been referred to the House Rules and House Administration committees. The bill has 71 co-sponsors and the list reads like a tea party roundup.
