In addition to inaccuracies reported here, it appears the reporter is evidently unfamiliar with many of the facts that relate to what the Henkes have testified to.
It's cloudy today where I live. I guess we'll have to use fossil fuels to provide the energy needed by 100% of those served through the electric company.
Good thing we have a complete power system for backup on cloudy days.
Maybe we need to fund building THREE power systems:
1. Our 'sunny day' system;
2. Our 'windy day' system; and
3. Our cloudy, windless day system.
Don't worry about the costs involved. Pushing oil drilling out to deep water was an acceptable cost to keep those ugly wells away from or shoreline.
The cost figures for wind and solar energy is usually presented without the cost for STORAGE of that energy.
On a cloudy day, absent any winds blowing, you must either have energy STORED someplace (batteries of some type) or the faithful backup system that is capable of providing energy for 100% of it's customers.
The best you can get out of wind or solar power now is a reduction in fuel used to produce energy with the method presently used.
That means you can put a small dent in the CO2 produced, if that is your objective, but you can't eliminate it unless the primary source is nuclear energy - and there is CO2 produced in providing the fuel for that method also.
Of course some of that storage problem may be eliminated through the EXCESS PRODUCTION of batteries for electric vehicles at the new plants popping up across the nation - all subsidized through your tax dollars!
Not sure who wrote this, but their math skills are certainly lacking. Just for an example; It states that the "$700 billion bank bailout bill, pushed the budget that the Obama administration inherited to over $12 trillion." That was all loans, much paid back already, in which Obama is trying to spend. Poor and inaccurate reporting.
Not all is lost for him. I'm sure they'd welcome his participation in studies of global warming, so long as he would still be open to fabricating data.
Dupree - 'foot in mouth'
We already know what Dr. Hazzard's "recommendations" were and the order of the court ignored by the "daddy". The objective of the court hearing will be HOW best to allow the "child" to get to know "mommy" again.
Surely this idiot (Dupree) hasn't taken any psychology lessons from Gregor and is hoping to somehow imitate how Gregor challenged the qualifications in "science" with Dr. Hazzard - "whore of the court" - in some effort to show he has a better "counselor's recommendations" .
Maybe Arnt's Facebook comment about an attorney running up the hours would fit well here!
Limit it to being "the "largest" oil spill in U.S. history", and you've successfully avoided identifying the 10 largest oil spills in the WORLD.
This BP well will not be the largest in the world by a long shot, not even the largest in the Gulf of Mexico.
"Catoosa County Sheriff Phil Summers said ..."We've got to review our process, and we've got to do everything possible to make sure an innocent person is not put through this process,""
Do we need to find the quotes from Summers that show this is an 180 degree change from what he has been saying, or is that just SOP for him?
Like the tree that fell when nobody was there to hear it! :)
I love great humor, and this fits well.
Regarding the law that has brought this humor about, I must admit I have not read it all the way through, but my gut reaction is there's something ILLEGAL going on in the practice of ILLEGAL immigration.
Maybe it would be fairer to replicate the laws of those Arizona is allegedly discriminating against. For all unfamiliar with the Mexican laws, the easiest way to explain it is to point out that they deport more ILLEGAL immigrants than the USA does.
That said, I still love the humor here!
