      So I’m watching this hilarious video at zip’s place of people being interviewed about AOC’s GND and the interviewer mentioned laying down all this railroad track.

      And the light when on (‘cuz I’m Girl Genius). Railroad tracks are made of steel. A lot is made from recycled metal but – the original metal comes from somewhere right?

      You need coal for steel. Sooner or later, you need coal. You need blast furnaces, electric arc furnaces, all kinds of stuff to make the tracks that all traces back to – fossil fuels.

      She wants to lay track across the Atlantic and to Hawaii. Coal miners everywhere should love it.

      Here’s the video. It’s over 30 mins, I’ve been watching bits at a time as I take a break now and then.

      @ eaglesoars:
      I thought that you guys had rules that covered cruel and unusual punishment.

      Watching a Greenie video about ‘gerbal worming’ is beyond the pale.

      @ Aussie Infidel:

      It’s actually very funny. They haven’t thought this thru.

      I’m betting not one of them could tell you what it takes to make a solar panel. And wind turbines aren’t made out of wood. Let’s talk about batteries.

      @ lobo91:

      Somebody did an experiment not too long ago showing what it would take to make a sandwich if one person had to do all the work. I mean from growing the wheat for the bread. AND what it would cost.

      making toast isn’t as easy at it looks.

      AND…speaking of bread – I made garlic bread today and YOU Aussie promised to sent me a recipe you like. I’m waiting.

      Pence didn’t come to mince words, as he reminded the collective security club that contributing members “still need to do more” to pay their fair share of the defense bill.

      oh yeah, they REALLY didn’t want to hear that.

      yeah, it’s not just Massachusetts that’s cut off its nose to spite its face. New York is going to take it in the neck too.

      Gas Shortages Give New York an Early Taste of the Green New Deal

      Now, in a preview of what life might be like under the Democrats’ proposed Green New Deal, some New Yorkers are about to face a natural-gas shortage. Consolidated Edison , an energy utility that provides gas and power to the New York City area, announced last month that beginning in mid-March it would “no longer be accepting applications for natural gas connections from new customers in most of our Westchester County service area.” The reason for the shortage is obvious: The Cuomo administration has repeatedly blocked or delayed new pipeline projects. As a Con Ed spokesman put it, there is a “lot of natural gas around the country, but getting it to New York has been the strain.”

      New York policy makers have also killed the state’s natural-gas-drilling business. In 2008 New York drillers produced about 150 million cubic feet of natural gas a day—not enough to meet all the state’s needs, but still a substantial amount. That same year legislators in Albany passed a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, the process used to wring oil and gas out of underground rock formations. In 2015 the Cuomo administration made the moratorium permanent.By 2018 New York’s gas production had declined so much that the Energy Information Administration quit publishing numbers on it.

      New York now imports nearly all of its gas even though part of the Marcellus Shale, one of the biggest and most prolific sources of natural gas in the country, extends into the state’s Southern Tier region. To get an idea of how much gas the state might have been able to produce from the Marcellus, New Yorkers can look across the state line to Pennsylvania, which now supplies about two-thirds of the gas consumed in New York. At the end of 2018, Pennsylvania drillers were producing about 18 billion cubic feet of gas a day. That’s more gas than Canada now produces.

      By keeping its natural gas in the ground, New York has lost out on jobs and tax revenue. By 2015, some 106,000 people were directly employed by Pennsylvania’s oil and gas industry, making it a bigger employer than the state’s famous steel sector. This year Pennsylvania’s state government is expected to take in some $247 million in gas-related fees.

      https://wattsupwiththat.com/2019/02/16/gas-shortages-give-new-york-an-early-taste-of-the-green-new-deal/

      So next time Cuoma/DeBlasio slam AOC for ‘killing jobs’, shove this down their gullets.

      Just saw another news brief online and it looks like the police are starting to change the story to help this scumbag. THey are claiming there is no evidence of a hoax. Scumbag gets caught in lie, police decide to cover for scumbag.

      oh, that reminds me. We got a letter from our gas company offering a ‘deal’ that would let us lock in our price for a year or so.

      Yeah kind of figured that out by the fact that Trump scares him.

      Anyone on here know about an online school that I can get full financial aid, transfer my credits, and test out of most of the classes? (Looking at elementary education).

      Here in the Chicago Area it does look like the cops are trying to help this guy.
      The Chief is African American and so is Smollett, so?

      @ Gateway Pundit
      now the lawyer for this Jussie dude is pretty much calling the cops liars.
      It could not be the Nigerian Brothers , so their testimony is unreliable, according to the attorney.
      Interesting, because Smollett told Robin Roberts that he knew those were the guys, “because I was there.”
      Thst was before a. Relationship with them became known.
