This could be a play by play of the Green Technology Investors against the Oil/Gas and Coal Investors.
First there is the coal mine explosion on April 6th that left dozens of workers dead, then the rig explosion off our coast. As one concerned U.S.
citizen puts it, "...The Deepwater Horizon oil rig, has an explosion and as if on cue, the media and newspapers scream about pollution in the water
and new EPA regulations needed. This all happens about a month after Obama signs an executive order opening up some areas for deepwater drilling,much
to his liberal base’s dismay. Am I crazy here or is is it just a little too convenient that in the exact same month that Obama and the senate are
starting to push a cap and trade bill,not one ,but TWO catastrophes happen that they rush to portray as proof positive that more EPA regulation is
just the cure required? I’ll accept the paranoid moniker,but should we see a natural gas explosion or crisis of some kind-we seem to have a pattern
. There is an appropriate saying that the Marines use that I will paraphrase here- “ONCE IS HAPPENSTANCE,TWICE IS A COINCIDENCE,THREE TIMES IS ENEMY
ACTION.” It does not escape my notice that each one of Obama’s policy initiatives and the resulting bill, has been precluded by an “emergency”
of some sort. One is left to wonder if these crises are generated to get the desired effect or just miraculously happen at just the right time to get
an agenda item passed. I’m not a betting woman, but 2 and 2 are not adding up to four here. I will wait very patiently for someone to prove me wrong
in my suspicions."
And now here's the third: On Wednesday 2 workers were killed in a Kentucky mine collapse.
In the meantime, Rush claims it's an environmentalist conspiracy. Now I'm not thinking of someone who hugs trees and loves wildlife here; shoot, I
hug trees myself & love all critters, but I think of so called "environmental technology" and the billions of dollars at stake. "The investments
are in a number of fields. Gates, for example, has put millions in a firm called Pacific Ethanol. Case has invested in Flexcar, a car sharing service,
popular among some urbanites who want a car, but don't want to pay monthly parking bills to house the vehicle. Venture capitalist Doerr has set up a
$100 million fund to invest in green technology.
Start-ups are not the only ones picking up on the trend. Major technology companies are now developing and marketing products that are specifically
"green," attempting to capitalize on today's high oil prices, and concerns about energy conservation."
Then we have a nice bit from the EIA where billions of dollars are at stake with coal investors "...prices should continue to rise in 2006, primarily
in response to growing demand from the electric power sector. Coal remains by far the dominant fuel used for electricity generation, accounting for
over 40% of worldwide electricity generation and over 50% of U.S. generation. In 2004, fully 92% of all coal consumed was used for electricity
There could be a possibility that the oil rig explosion was a set up. Just as the World Trade Center bombing is viewed as a set up by many, to which
that tradgedy severely impacted thousands of human beings in one way or another, so will this detrimentally impact sea life/wild life.
I do hope to hear from the big wigs like Gates and the other leaders in green environmental technology investments regarding this matter soon as it
sure would be nice to hear their take on these reprehensible assumptions floating "around".
