Default Obama's War On Coal Costs

are you ready for this? now consider how this will affect inflation.

Obama�s war on coal hits your electric bill

By Phil Kerpen
Published May 22, 2012

Obama�s War on Coal has already taken a remarkable toll on coal-fired power plants in America.
Last week the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported a shocking drop in power sector coal consumption in the first quarter of 2012. Coal-fired power plants are now generating just 36 percent of U.S. electricity, versus 44.6 percent just one year ago.
It�s the result of an unprecedented regulatory assault on coal that will leave us all much poorer.
Last week PJM Interconnection, the company that operates the electric grid for 13 states (Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia) held its 2015 capacity auction. These are the first real, market prices that take Obama�s most recent anti-coal regulations into account, and they prove that he is keeping his 2008 campaign promise to make electricity prices �necessarily skyrocket.�
The market-clearing price for new 2015 capacity � almost all natural gas � was $136 per megawatt. That�s eight times higher than the price for 2012, which was just $16 per megawatt. In the mid-Atlantic area covering New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and DC the new price is $167 per megawatt. For the northern Ohio territory served by FirstEnergy, the price is a shocking $357 per megawatt.

I view this as simply an on going policy designed to further wreck the US economy and in turn giving the government more power.

To paraphrase an old quote:
When the sheeple are up to their butts in debt because of high energy costs it can be hard to remember the goal was to rein in an out of control government.

I view this a visionary and idealistic. Not practical. I want to see more solar and wind power for residential and business use. I want to see the middle east countries suffer as much as they have made the rest of the world suffer under the pressure of price gouging of non-replenishable fuel. They obviously need to put their people to work, instead of constant protest marches and bickering among tribes and religious sects. Any time I see articles and TV stuff about the middle east, I see thousands of people in the streets. Don't they ever have to work for a living?


Anyway, I really would like to have solar and wind turbine at home. Too expensive right now. I already have a hybrid car, Prius, 53 miles per gallon. I know it can be done. I understand that it is not practical for trucks. Buses can be natural gas fueled at least. More, more, more.

I wonder if they will ever get battery technology advanced enough to make electric cars a worthwhile proposition.

Oh yeah. I forgot about fuel cell. Here is a company trying to provide 1.5 kilowatts by 2013. That's about what 1 US house uses. A technological breakthrough. Sounds clean too. Affordable?

BlackLight Power, Inc. (BLP) announced last week a major breakthrough in clean energy technology, which experts agree holds tremendous promise for a wide range of commercial applications. The announcement comes on the heels of BlackLight�s recent completion of a $5 million round of financing to support commercial development of its new process for producing affordable, reliable energy from water vapor.
In six separate, independent studies, leading scientists from academia and industry with PhDs from prestigious universities including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the California Institute of Technology, confirm that BlackLight has achieved a technological breakthrough with its CIHT (Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition) clean energy generating process and cell. The Process is fueled by water vapor that is a gaseous component of air and present wherever there is any source of water. The CIHT cell harnesses this energy as electrical power output and is suitable for essentially all power applications including transportation applications and electrical power production completely autonomous of fuels and grid infrastructure at a small fraction of the current capital costs.

�BlackLight�s continuously operating, power-producing system converts ubiquitous H2O (water) vapor directly into electricity, oxygen, and a new, more stable form of Hydrogen called Hydrino, which releases 200 times more energy than directly burning hydrogen,� said Dr. Randell Mills, Chairman, CEO and President of BlackLight Power, Inc., and inventor of the process. Hydrogen is not naturally available and has to be produced using energy. But, H2O vapor is ubiquitous and free, obtainable even from ambient air. Dr. Mills says that BlackLight has achieved critical milestones in scaling its new technology with typical electrical gain of more than ten times that which initiates the process, operating over long duration at the 10 Watt (W) scale. A 100 W unit is planned for completion by the end of 2012, and a 1.5 kiloWatt (kW) pilot unit that can serve the residential power market, as an initial target commercial application, is expected to be operational by 2013. (One kW is equal to 1000 W, and 1.5 kW is the typical, average power consumption of a US home.)
