Kudos to Marcia Neal. It’s not only about lost jobs. It is a continuous consistent and methodical process of pressure by the environmentalists to drive us off any carbon based energy which they claim is destroying the climate. They want to force us all toward highly insufficient, inadequate and very expensive “Green” energy. Of course, without adequate jobs, people won’t be able to afford this energy.

Most of the “greenies” I’ve seen promoting this are either financially well enough-to do, or non-materialistic tree hugger / hippie types, where money or the cost of energy to the individual is of no concern to them.

Working class families with children to support are suffering enough with already rampant inflation, and many are already on the system in some way. We need an energy policy that is cost effective and inflation resistant, so energy bills and prices at the pump stay stable. People shouldn’t have to choose between eating enough or paying utility bills and putting gas in their car. Rising energy and transportation costs are the number one reason why food prices are so inflated.

When Election time comes, remember this quote:

“Leftist ideology is a parasitic pathogen that invades a society and will ultimately kill the host. The host must fight for its existence to throw the disease off and heal itself.”

Politicians violating open meeting laws—as anyone that took their partisan blinders off—is bi-partisan.  Secret oil shale meetings, invite-only policy ‘task forces,’  it is bad behavior, but nothing new and nothing that is R or D, but good government that requires public accountability.  Or you can blame Obama if it makes you feel better.
