Obama Adds “Clean Coal” To Website


Think maybe he got scared by losing 40% of the Democratic primary vote in a strong coal state?

The Obama campaign added a section on “clean coal” to its website this week after House Republicans alleged that the president’s “all-of-the-above” energy plan neglected the fossil fuel.

Wind Farms May Add To “Global Warming”


Not really a good day for the greenies today. Turns out one of their favorite forms of “clean” energy — as long as the required machinery is in someone else’s backyard — may be adding to their huge bugaboo, “global warming.”

Large wind farms might have a warming effect on the local climate, research in the United States showed on Sunday, casting a shadow over the long-term sustainability of wind power.

Latest Green Energy Source: Spinach!


And the government is throwing our hard-earned tax dollars at this idea.

President Obama recently touted algae as a potential source of energy, and now the Environmental Protection Agency has invested in converting spinach into an energy source.

The EPA awarded a $90,000 grant over the weekend to Vanderbilt University students “who designed a biohybrid solar panel that substitutes a protein from spinach for expensive silicon wafers that are energy intensive to produce, and is capable of producing electricity.”
