Obama is doing this by destroying the old "Oil Based" economy and laying the foundation for the New "Green Based" economy. As if that isn't bad enough, this New economy will have it's roots deep in the failed theory of Global Warming.
To help prove that point, here is an article from the AP today that says Georgia Tech is going to be receiving $2 Million, of a $41 Million dollar Department of Energy Grant program, that is to study ways of capturing carbon without raising the price of energy any more than 35%:
"ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Tech has received a $2.4 million grant to study new ways to capture carbon dioxide from coal-burning power plants.
The grant from the U.S. Department of Energy was one of 16 valued at $41 million. The funding is meant to spur research on methods to cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants without raising the cost of electricity more than 35 percent.
President Barack Obama's administration says it wants five to 10 commercial demonstration projects online by 2016.
Existing carbon capture technologies are highly inefficient, depriving plants of 20 to 30 percent of the electricity that they generate. Researchers at Georgia Tech are investigating ways to capture carbon dioxide on hollow fibers loaded with silica-supported adsorbents."
So while you sleep soundly at night thinking that Global Warming is dead...
The Obama Administration is busy at work using your tax payer borrowed funds to Transform this country into a "Green" Paradise.
Who says you can't have Nightmares when your awake?
