Bob Latta is confused (again)

"First-term congressman Bob Latta (R-OH) believes that President Obama’s energy reform policy means that Obama “has declared war on Ohio and Indiana.” Latta, who won his seat with the support of $34,250 in oil and gas money, claimed that setting standards for global warming pollution is tantamount to a military invasion of his state.

You are aware that most oil work is union work arent you?

Do you hate union workers now too?

You think your utility bills are high now?...wait till cap and trade kicks in....the moderate estimate is that your bills will DOUBLE....

I dont know about your situation...but that will make my winter heating bills higher than my house payment...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

"We could lose manufacturing jobs left and right," said Rep. Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green. "It kind of looks like the Obama administration has declared war on Ohio and Indiana. I'm concerned because we've got to keep people working. We want to keep people here."

Because god knows we didn't loose manufacturing jobs in the last 20 years here in Ohio and Indiana…

Well gee....how long has Marcy represented us? 20 years at least...

Wood county isnt loosing jobs...Lucas IS...businesses like FED ex and a hundred others have bolted from lucas county like it was on fire....and when businesses try and move in...the dems fight that too..

We could have our own intermodel by the airport...NO!

Pick a part wanted to move near a junk yard and rail line...NO

Bass pro?

Wonder bread?

Dems even fought the wall mart on glendale...

We allready have some of the highest electricity rate in the NATION...add cap and trade and it will easily double...

BG has it's own municiple electrical company...CHEAPER than edison...

Gee...didnt we try and do that?...oh yeah...democrats fought it off under threats from edison...

When you throw poop on a tilt-a-whirl, it only hits you right in the face...

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

The rest of the article refutes both of these points:

"Even using the industry’s own worst-case scenarios for the economic effects of cap and trade legislation, Ohio’s citizens would gain thousands of jobs and enjoy healthy economic growth. In 2007, the National Association of Manufacturers and the American Council for Capital Formation commissioned a report on the economics of mandatory carbon reductions, using pessimistic assumptions about the flexibility of the economy to use renewable energy and energy efficiency. An analysis by the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of NAM/ACCF’s study of cap and trade finds:

– According to the ACCF/NAM “high-cost case,” Ohio’s economy would grow 59%, while carbon emissions would fall by 36%.

– Under the ACCF/NAM high-cost case forecast under a carbon cap program, in 2030 average Ohioans will be about 58 percent richer than in 2007.

– With the increase in state revenues over time, Ohio could reduce the average classroom size in school system by 20 percent, and still increase support for all other state and local services by 54 percent.

– Under the ACCF/NAM high-cost case forecast, 6.31 million people will have jobs in 2030, an 11.8 percent increase.

“This forecast takes no account of the increased job opportunities that will result through investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy,” the PERI authors note. “Clean energy investments produce roughly 3.5 times more jobs per dollar than spending on oil, coal, and natural gas, because they require relatively more spending on people and lesson equipment, and because they require fewer imports.”

These jobs would come from companies like First Solar of Perrysburg, Great Lakes Window of Walbridge, Northwest Ohio Wind Energy of Grover Hill, and American Ag Fuels of Defiance, among many other innovative green-economy manufacturers in Rep. Latta’s district.

The Bush-Cheney pro-pollution economy, by contrast, has been devastating for Ohio: more than 1,087 companies shut down or had mass layoffs, costing 180,264 Ohioans their jobs, even as Ohio was hit by severe droughts in 2002, 2005, and 2007 — as well as 2007’s catastrophic flood."

Spam 'produces 17m tons of CO2'

Tackling spam 'should be part of campaign to reduce emissions'
A study into spam has blamed it for the production of more than 33bn kilowatt-hours of energy every year, enough to power more than 2.4m homes.

The Carbon Footprint of e-mail Spam report estimated that 62 trillion spam emails are sent globally every year.

This amounted to emissions of more than 17 million tons of CO2, the research by climate consultants ICF International and anti-virus firm McAfee found.

Searching for legitimate e-mails and deleting spam used some 80% of energy.

The study found that the average business user generates 131kg of CO2 every year, of which 22% is related to spam.

Unwanted traffic

ICF say that spam filtering would reduce unwanted spam by 75%, the equivalent to taking 2.3 million cars off the road.

However, the ICF goes on to say that while spam filtering is effective in reducing energy waste, fighting it at the source is far better.

First thing you can do to help reduce CO2 is to smash your computer and stay off the internet for ever....or else your a frickin hypocrite.

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Good facts! Only big oil and the poltitcians they pay for, like Bob Latta, don't want to admit that our long term economic health is benefitted from "green" job creation, along with helping our environment!

Nope...here's the facts:...the inconvenient truth:

Job Losses From Obama Green Stimulus Foreseen in Spanish Study

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=newsarchive&sid=a2PHwqAs7BS0

By Gianluca Baratti

March 27 (Bloomberg) -- Subsidizing renewable energy in the U.S. may destroy two jobs for every one created if Spain’s experience with windmills and solar farms is any guide.

For every new position that depends on energy price supports, at least 2.2 jobs in other industries will disappear, according to a study from King Juan Carlos University in Madrid.

"

.

The premiums paid for solar, biomass, wave and wind power - - which are charged to consumers in their bills -- translated into a $774,000 cost for each Spanish “green job” created since 2000, said Gabriel Calzada, an economics professor at the university and author of the report.

“The loss of jobs could be greater if you account for the amount of lost industry that moves out of the country due to higher energy prices,” he said in an interview.

Spain’s Acerinox SA, the nation’s largest stainless-steel producer, blamed domestic energy costs for deciding to expand in South Africa and the U.S., according to the study.

“Microsoft and Google moved their servers up to the Canadian border because they benefited from cheaper energy there,” said the professor of applied environmental economics.

to recap..the study found that for every "green" job...you lose 2.2 regular jobs...and only 1 out of 10 green jobs is perminate...

So for two perminate green jobs...you have destroyed 22 regular jobs...

BRILLIANT!...it's the democrat way!

“Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.”

Sorry Z (last in the alphabet, last in the facts), but that study was written by a Spanish economist who's organization receives funding from Exxon Mobil:

"On April 14, Fox News Supreme Court reporter Shannon Bream cast doubt on President Obama's proposal to fund green energy by touting a Spanish study showing that "for every green job created [in Spain], 2.2 jobs are lost." Fox News host David Asman stated that the study is evidence that "green jobs could actually kill other jobs." However, Bream, who appeared on Fox News' America's Newsroom, Your World, and Special Report to report on the study, identified the study's research director, Gabriel Calzada Álvarez, only as "an economics professor from Spain." She did not note that Calzada is reportedly a founding member of the Prague Network, which, according to Radio Prague, is "an international grouping of institutions aimed at countering panic connected with global warming," or that Calzada is reportedly a fellow at the Centre for the New Europe, an organization that has reportedly received funding from ExxonMobil. Moreover, during her reports on America's Newsroom and Your World, Bream did not note any criticism of the study."
