WARNING- Obama’s De-growth Agenda is here
August 10, 2015
Obama’s De-growth Agenda
The coal industry is facing its toughest challenge since The Great Depression of 1929. The collapse in coal prices and a growing weight from new regulations has claimed dozens of firms. In just recent months, three major coal producers have filed for bankruptcy.
Alpha Natural Resources operates more than fifty underground and surface mines in five states. It is the nation’s largest producer of the type of coal used in steel production. In 2011, Alpha Natural Resources was worth $11 billion in stock value. The firm is now worth less than $7 million.
Peabody Energy Corporation, is the largest private-sector coal company in the world. In 2011, its stock traded as high as $73 per share. Today, you can buy a share in company with one single dollar.
This apocalypse in coal could have been predicted by anyone who read President Barack Obama’s views on the industry. On January 17, 2008, Obama made known his hostility toward, of all things, electricity generated from coal and coal-powered plants. He told the San Francisco Chronicle,“You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal . . . under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
The president is seeking to downsize America because he is a supporter of the de-growth agenda. This movement sees the reduction of production and consumption as a benefit to human well-being and the equity of the planet. It calls for a future where societies live within their ecological means, with open localized economies and resources more equally distributed through new forms of Democratic institutions. Obama thinks the U.S. takes too large a piece of the resource pie, so we need to cut back our demand.
The plans they have for us are not conspiracy theory, but fact. It is all down in black and white, not sequestered in some caliginous cabal in some Bilderberger basement somewhere.
The reality of what they plan is beginning to surface in snippets here and there. One of the Obama front men said a week or so ago that our air conditioners are a big part of the carbon emission problem because of the energy required to keep us cooled down to our comfort level. This is the best indicator I can think of to illustrate the shoe-leather issue as they begin walking all over us--without, it is most disgusting to have to say--any significant push-back from the people we elected to replace the other rascals in the 2012 midterm elections.
