Saving The Planet

Post by Riddick » 08-15-2015 05:00 PM

You hear it all the time, the planet needs saving!... But where's the money going? What's it REALLY all about? As Dagwood demonstrates, it's always good to ask questions.

Around here, we've been seeing a big push towards solar and we have been thinking about it, but then in looking at "the fine print", we're seeing companies that actually charge you for using the service. I thought that, once you had the panels installed, that you could use the power generated to power your home and then sell-off excess to a utility.

Now we're seeing that, in addition to doing that, you can get wacked for having the panels and related gear and pay the solar company monthly fees post-installation, for having their panels installed on your roof.....

There's always a racket out there.....

Hey you two very dedicated pirates! Last night's news always ended with Germany's Angela Merkle's remarks in response to The Donald's Paris cc accord drop out. Quoting the news lady now, "Angela Merkel said she will continue to save the Earth." End of story................ :lol: Get on your high horse and ride lady :!: :fortune:

How do you spell Merkle? Should the e be inside the l? :oops: Her other frequent quotes about ME immigrants puts you in mind of Nancy Pelosi's press releases from a muddled mind being mixed up. Heck it could be early dementia or Alzheimers setting in, in both cases :idea:

It's bedtime for Bonzo, me, and I think President Ronald Reagan would like President Donald Trump. :wink:

I'm having a hard time with Trump on this one. The only people that I saw cheering him were the people sitting at his announcement -even the utilities here in the US are saying he's wrong on this. From what I've heard Trump say, this step was taken to protect, primarily, coal producers, but most coal-fired generating units have been closed or are being closed. here in mass, we have five "filthy five" coal-fired generating units. One, located across the river from my hometown, closed yesterday after being in operation since the early 60s. By itself, it powered 1.5 million homes, but the particulates emitting from the stacks would go airborne and ended-up in Canada (Quebec and the Maritimes), upstate New York and Greenland. The owners added two huge cooling towers that are clearly visible from space and look horrible. Home prices in the area have dropped thanks to this hulk, so it was good to close it - on many levels. This is the second plant to close in this area. Another in Salem, on the Cape Cod Canal, and another over by the Berkshires are also slated to close because they're filthy and can't be fixed.

Trump caved on this issue to special interests, IMHO

The Greatest Bullsh!t Story Ever Told

IMHO? There's special interests, and then, there's global special interests who know better than anyone not only is the science settled, man made climate change IS THE gravest threat all of humanity AND the Earth has ever faced!!

They'll tell you in no uncertain terms by exiting the Paris accord Trump is siding with world-destroying sinners instead of the saints who want to save the planet, not the least of them being the true believers of The Church Of Climatology -

Fact is in the wake of Trump's announcement, His High Holiness is re-cutting "An Inconvenient Sequel" to leave no doubt The Donald is THE DEVIL! There is only ONE way, the one TRUE way, all who deny Al's truth shall be damned for eternity.

Of course, unquestioning faithfulness alone will not suffice. To be saved, sacrifices will need to be made. Local control, individual liberty, national sovereignty, personal savings, disposable income, private property rights: You name it, it's all fair game.

With no less than the future of mankind and Gaia at stake it'd be a grave mistake NOT to take the battle directly to the heathens and heretics; to combat The Great Satan Carbon crusade they will, crusade they must, all opposition they shall crush!

Did Kathy Griffin go too far or not far enough? It may be she's before her time and ahead of the curve! Convert, unbelievers, or be excised - Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide, any who remain in denial will find nothing will save them from the saviors.

Postscript: H. L. Mencken said, "The urge to save humanity is almost always a false-front for the urge to rule it" - More than some little truth there I'd say! And for more keen observations on humanity and saving urges, here's George Carlin:

:hearteyes George Carlin! :D

Maybe the president has been tuned into him on YT Riddick. :)

Doc Savage was at his Bronx Best Friday night on WJR Detroit 96.7 AM. He listed at least 25 US corporations starting with Solyndra's solar debacle to the tune of $ 550 million $ deal from the Obumer administration and each had a corp name and huge money figures that would curl your toes. :shock: I thought he was never gonna stop name'n 'em! And for their failure to show where their bucks went not one individual's gone to jail. He said they made off with more money than Bernie Madoff and he's in prison! :oops:

I am firmly in Trump's camp and Al Gore still has plenty of time to save the planet along with his 2 newest helpers A. Merkle, and Gov "Moonbeam" Jerry Brown! ::p

That darned exhausted polar bear on an ice cube sized berg was just caught taking a swim break for the camera in Gore's Inconvenient Truth! :idea:

India and China got a 15 year pass and we were getting $hafted! :roll:

His High Holiness can use all the help he can get. Like money, too much is never enough! As it is, the sky is falling act works only so long as folks buy the hype - The longer it stays where it's always been sales fall as do the prophet's profits!!

Thanks for the warning kbot. I have entertained the idea also. :wink: :oops:

Riddick, I never thought Al to be of the religious type. :idea: Unless he was studying the religion of false science. In closing we'll never know what was said between President Donald Trump and Al in his NYC visit to the Trump Tower. :confused:

Hillary's Answer To CC: Lose Weight, Save The Planet! (From 2009)

Post by Riddick » 06-05-2017 02:32 PM

The US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has compared the challenge of tackling climate change to her own fight to lose weight.

Speaking to State Department staff on Earth Day, Hillary said more must be done to reduce the department's environmental footprint, reports The Telegraph.

"Often times when you face such an overwhelming challenge as global climate change, it can be somewhat daunting - it's kind of like trying to lose weight, which I know something about," she said to laughter. She added: "You think, oh I only have to lose X numbers of pounds but it seems like such a far away goal.

"It's kind of like world peace and so therefore why even try? Well, because we are called to try. That's who we are as human beings and that's especially how we think of ourselves as Americans." FULL STORY

Right on Riddick! We'll be up your way starting Friday AM unless the Great Lakes spill over their banks too fast covering all the dairy farms in Wisconsin! :o We're not pulling a boat to keep on going North to Canada! Like the National Weather Service robotic voice says, "Turn around; Don't drown! Go another way!" So if your Holsteins and Guernseys are swimming in a very wide Lake Mitchigan we may have to go another way. :oops:

Heck Doka, between now and 2030 the climate change will begat a major sea level rise that will have all of us either living high up in the Appalachians or the Rocky Mountains. Do you own a sea worthy boat by chance? I've got 5 if you want to borrow one, and one of them weighs 22lbs made of Kevlar and ballistic nylon composites. :lol:

It's super having you back on board with or without a life deserver! :coolhat:

Riddick and Doka, when will witty Shrillery be gone from the news. Yesterday Matt Drudge had a line about the Dems wanting her out of the picture sooner than later. I did not read it. :wink:

Riddick of Wisconsin,

You posted that video the day I arrived by float plane 50 miles North of the Canadian border. That short video should open eyes wide to the falsehoods in the construction of cc fake news way back when. Thank you very much :!:

Telling lies repeatedly will eventually have the masses believing any lie to be true! And we know where that often quoted phrase came from in 1930's Nazi Germany. Then in the 1940's "The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!" was not a comedic title of a Hollywood movie!
