Hold Onto Your Wallet or Buy Solarpanels Now

New EU-US energy council to be set up early November

According to the EUObserver in a recent article:

The EU and the US will set up a joint energy council at ministerial and commissioner level to streamline policy initiatives relating to green technologies, research and energy security on both sides of the Atlantic, a US official told this website.

As soon as I hear that ministers and the kommisars from the US and EU are getting together to harmonize energy policy, I know what that means: hold onto my wallet.

“Energy is an important foreign policy priority for the US and a very important component of our bilateral relationship with the EU. We wanted to have a form of engagement with the Europeans to reflect that and to raise it to the policy level, to the cabinet level,” the US official said in a phone interview, under condition of anonymity…

However, it was released that the US will be represented by none other than (drumroll), Hillary Clinton.

We know the goal of Cap and Trade, Copenhagen and now this is heading in one direction: higher taxes for Joe SixPack, US citizen.  Get ready for energy price increases on the order of 20% over today before the end of Obama’s first term as well as at least a 20% increase in taxes on your energy uses.

Hey, why not take advantage of the solar industry subsidies passed by our conservative legislature?  Buy your solar panels now.  I hear even Phil Gordon is pawning some.


  1. I’m sure the purveyors of steam engines and horse-drawn carriages were also “a’gin that new fangled internal combustin’ engine, goldangit!” when it first came out too.

    You should re-title this post:

    “Let’s stay mired in technology that hasn’t advanced since the 20th Century!”.

    I’m reminded of the quote by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky:

    “The Earth is the cradle of humanity, but mankind cannot stay in the cradle forever.”

    Time to stop pretending that this is end of history.

    Green energy is just a hare more developed than it was in the early 1980s during the last energy crisis drama in which the base load usual technologies bailed us out.

    Coal and Nuclear are the only way to go. Why do you think China is peddle to the metal on both? In the US both technologies are very advanced and clean in spite of what the fools on the Left feel.

    Windmills are elegant but only 17% efficient when considering when the wind blows. And, no Greenie talks about the bird kills from wind farms or how they alter the micro climate of a region.

    Solar is fine when the sun shine but its not delight at night.

    Europe can go to (perdition) (or continue sinking into Islam and Atheism – now there’s a recipe for future prosperity)
