WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama issued an executive order on Thursday that would increase the number of cogeneration plants in the U.S. by 50 percent by 2020, a move that would boost U.S. industrial energy efficiency and slash carbon emissions by 150 million tons per year. The order is the administration's latest effort to deploy cleaner and more efficient energy production in the country by working around political resistance to climate change and "green" energy legislation on Capitol Hill. The measure aims to accelerate investments to help manufacturers expand their use of combined heat and power (CHP) facilities,

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obummer’s middle name is “Sneaky.” The dude is slicker than wet snot.
The best emission control will be when we air out the White House as the Obamas clear out in Jan.
Unbelievable... he’s doubling down on business and job destruction.
Did he think no one would notice?
another day, another EO.
Wait until after the election. There will be all sorts of Executive Orders.

He is issueing this stuff like every week without any congressional oversight. He doesn’t have a record to run on...so he is magically creating one through the use of Executive Orders. Sneaky...only if you haven’t been watching...
I think it was a Twilight Zone segment or perhaps a SF short story about handicapping people so they would all be equal - handsome people covered their faces, dominant hands were tied behind backs to ‘even up’ all members of society.
Obama would order that if he could figure out a way.

The measure aims to accelerate looting taxpayer dollars to help obamas friends and cronies.
Fixed for accuracy again.
You know, if romney gets elected, all he has to do to is sign another executive order overturning this. But chances are he won’t. Same way bush never overturned a single Clinton executive order.
It would be funny if Mitt got elected and issued an EO rescinding all the previous EO’s.
Then another EO banning all further EO’s.
Actually it was a Kurt Vonnegut story:
The name was ‘Harrison Bergeron, a short story from “Welcome to the Monkey House:
My favorite film version was an older one (which I can’t find) It was true to the book. There is another more current version on Youtube (1995). -not really the book.
There only needs to be one, rescinding the lot from the previous four years.
What a bunch of utter BS.
They are claiming that NG is replacing coal. Somewhat true. But the rapid reduction in coal fired KW is not all due to NG. We are in a deepening recession. Industrial power use is down.
“The measure aims to accelerate investments to help manufacturers expand their use of combined heat and power (CHP) facilities,...”
Notice the use of the word ‘investments’? That’s the term the Dems came up with many months ago to take the place of “spending taxpayers’ dollars” on green energy projects.
What is that floating in the punch bowl? Oh, it’s another Obama executive order.
The shift caused carbon dioxide emissions from energy use in the first quarter of this year to fall their lowest level in the U.S. in 20 years.
Conversation which I imagine took place in the White House: "How can we get out in front of this and take credit for it?"
"Why not issue an Executive Order?"
Keep it up, crackhead. Out here in Head Out of Our Ass country, that's an infomercial FOR him. Don't feel too bad though, I half suspect he's faking it and you'll be perfectly happy with Pres. Romney's environmental record.
Sure it's not Obama?
My middle finger is shy, so to even everything out, it’s going to have to be permanently extended.
