Fracking and tarsands have not been researched enough to know if they are more carbon friendly, or even if they serve effectively as an energy provider, given the potential negative environmental effects.  Moniz's strategy of zero-carbon emission is a noble goal, but don't throw the baby out with the bathwater in its pursuit.

Moniz added: “In the very long run, very tight carbon constraints  Read More...

Expect more Republican obstruction ... then expect them to complain that Obama hasn't filled his cabinet. Standard GOP Tactics ... blame the other side for the things they cause. Just watch.

Obama's nominee to run the Office of Management and Budget, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, will be a key player in Washington's fiscal fights if confirmed by the Senate.

Burwell is Washington veteran, having served in several posts during the Clinton administration, including deputy OMB director. She currently heads the Wal-Mart Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the retail giant, and previously served as president of the Gates Foundation's Global Development Program.

....................................OK so Burwell currently heads the Wal-Mart Foundation? thought that Wal-Mart was suppose to be a bad place to work for ? a place where the employees were treated unfairly? didnt employees and customers boycott and Walmart ? and now he has someone from Wal-Mart in office?

Anything but to deal with the consequences of sequester. Very presidential of Emperor Obama. LOL. Let me enlighten how it works. One person yields. Two people compromise. So far Obama has called on the Republicans to compromise (and you know what that means), not that he has any intention of doing any such thing.

So please Enlighten us, since you obviously know the all the demands of being President of the United States.. I take it you have held that position before so you can speak with some expertise on the subject, correct?

And while your at it, because you are able to read his mind as well, give us all the strategy he is using with the Reps, I am sure they will want you to let them know so they can plan ahead.. Thanks

The first step in your enlightenment is that you might know that to criticize a being you don't have to be that being. Otherwise misguided atheists would have lots of problems.

Why don't you pretend a little modesty--"us"?

What makes you so sure there is a mind to read? Have you conducted a CAT Scan or an MRI?

Pres. Obama picked women to run the SEC, FTC, OMB, EPA, Interior, and the Air Force Academy. Yes ,NYTimes...Ann Lowry ( Mrs Ezra Klein ), he really has a "women problem."

Not "works" for Walmart - just "theorizes" for Walmart. No one in the administration has ever held a "real" job. B.O. the C.O. (community organizer) knows how to pick people just like him.

Conservatives Pushing Boehner, Cantor to Defund Obamacare in Continuing Resolution

Boehner spokesman Michael Steel added: “[M]ake no mistake, House Republicans are committed to repealing ObamaCare (which we have already voted to do) and--if the Senate fails to act on repeal--we will use every means at our disposal to stop this job-destroying law.”

In the two years that have passed since, Boehner and Cantor have not followed through on that promise.

It certainly does not appear that Boehner and Cantor will fight this time, though. When NBC News’ David Gregory asked Boehner on Sunday’s Meet The Press whether he would “commit” to not shutting the government down over the continuing resolution, Boehner responded: “absolutely.”

“We, the House next week will act to extend the continuing resolution through the end of the fiscal year, September 30th,” Boehner said. “The president this morning agreed that we should not have any talk of a government shutdown. So I'm hopeful that the House and Senate will be able to work through this.”

PAGE 2 GET RID OF OBUMMERCARE

It is unclear if Boehner and Cantor will defund Obamacare this time around. Over the past couple years, they have passed continuing resolutions that actually fund Obamacare. Spokespeople for both Boehner and Cantor have not returned requests for comment from Breitbart News on this matter.

That said, Cantor and Boehner both promised to use the appropriations process to defund Obamacare in press statements in early 2011 after the Tea Party movement swept the GOP into control of the House of Representatives.

At a February 2011 press conference, CNS News asked Cantor: "On the CR [continuing resolution], when that bill comes to the floor, will there be any funding for the health care reform law in it?"

Cantor responded that there would not. “I expect to see, one way or the other, the product coming out of the House to speak to that [ObamaCare funding] and to preclude any funding to be used for that,” Cantor said.

Boehner spokesman Michael Steel added: “[M]ake no mistake, House Republicans are committed to repealing ObamaCare (which we have already voted to do) and--if the Senate fails to act on repeal--we will use every means at our disposal to stop this job-destroying law.”

In the two years that have passed since, Boehner and Cantor have not followed through on that promise.

With Obama it's all about skin color and sexual orientation. Qualifications are always secondary.

PAGE 1 GET RID OF OBUMMERCARE Conservatives Pushing Boehner, Cantor to Defund Obamacare in Continuing Resolution
Conservative House Republicans are circulating a letter calling on House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor to defund Obamacare in the upcoming continuing resolution that funds the government. Oklahoma Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine, a freshman, and Kansas Republican Rep. Tim Huelskamp are leading the charge.
“The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (‘ObamaCare’) remains broadly unpopular across America,” the letter to Boehner and Cantor reads. “More and more Americans are now feeling its impact--from job losses and part-time downgrades, to insurance policy changes and violations of religious liberties, to state budget strains from Medicaid expansions. And Americans don’t like these impacts. Most Americans still believe that healthcare should be controlled by patients and doctors, not by the government.”

In the letter, the conservatives note that while they plan to “re-start efforts to repeal ObamaCare in its entirety this year, next year and until we are successful,” that “in the meantime, there is more we can do in Congress.”

The upcoming continuing resolution, which funds the government, is one such place. House Republicans have the power, should they choose to use it, to shut down Obamacare through the appropriations process--the power of the purse laid out in the United States Constitution.

Ernest Moniz, director of MIT's Energy Institute, which boasts such Big Oil financial backers as BP, Chevron and Saudi Aramco, is a cheerleader for FRACKING.

There is already ample evidence to suggest that the U.S. food system has been contaminated by chemicals used in fracking.

These polluted crops and infected farm animals raised for food serve as potential avenues for exposing humans to these same hazardous chemicals, including arsenic, benzene, ethylene glycol (antifreeze), formaldehyde, lead, toluene, Uranium-238 and Radium-226.

The American Academy of Pediatrics’ list of common health problems from exposure to these chemicals includes autism, asthma, cancer, heart disease, kidney failure, infertility, birth defects, allergies, endocrine diseases and immune system disorders.

Moniz believes that the "bridge" to low-carbon sources of energy can only be achieved by drastically expanding America’s fracking infrastructure – even calling the controversial and toxic energy extraction method “paradigm shifting.”

If early reports of the Moniz appointment are accurate then the signal from the White House couldn’t be clearer:

Americans should prepare for a massive proliferation of fracking wells in California, primarily to extract the Monterey Shale deposit which is spread over six central and southern California counties, as well as the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
