Obama issues -‘GREEN ENERGY’ EXECUTIVE ORDER

Little attention has been given to an executive order issued last Thursday by President Barack Obama that targets industrial “efficiency” and carbon emissions.

Executive order: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2012/08/30/executive-order-accelerating-investment-industrial-energy-efficiency

The order, which aims to increase the number of cogeneration plants in the U.S. by 50 percent by 2020 and slash carbon emissions by 150 million tons per year, 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,” Reuters reports.

“The Federal Government has limited but important authorities to overcome … barriers, and our efforts to support investment in industrial energy efficiency and CHP [Combined heat and power] should involve coordinated engagement with a broad set of stakeholders,” the order says.

Translation: If duly elected representatives of the people get in the way of “climate change” (formerly known as “global warming,“ formerly known as ”global cooling”) legislation, work around them.

“The man is legislating by presidential fiat!” conservative author and radio show host Mark Levin said Friday. “This is unconstitutional.”

“This is a fiat from on high for these utilities to change the way they process energy — anenormous capital expense and many of them are going to close down,” Levin argued. “And they only have eight years to do it as part of this ‘cap-and-trade,‘ ’green’ energy, ‘climate change’ bull crap.”

“You’re going to see your bills go up, up, and up some more. And you’re going to see brownouts and one day blackouts,” he added.

  1. Timely Renewed September 4, 2012 at 11:26 pm #

    This is just one more manifestation of an imperial presidency which has been growing under Republicans as well as Democrats. While defeating Obama is important, the only permanent solution is to restore the Constitution’s original limits on federal power. Since Neither Congress nor the president or the DC establishment will do this, the only way to accomplish this is to reform the constitutional amendment process so that the States can amend the Constitution to restore those original limits without having to go through either Congress or the untried and unworkable mechanism of a convention.
