Historically high winter gas prices:

Who to blame? You know.

Via American Glob:

Obama is still trying to make this about Republicans. Nancy Pelosi has moved on to blaming Wall Street.

A few years ago Obama, Pelosi and almost every other member of their party blamed one person. The president.

Newt has released a 28 minute video discussing energy independence. (h/t numerous readers)

Via Human Events, the video will be broadcast in key markets, in its entirety. Also, it was done entirely from memory, without aid of notes or a teleprompter.

Big question: Will people watch a 28 minute video?  Or is it enough...

So Obama is going to kill the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada, pending apparently another route being drawn up.  Which means that he has killed it dead, because any route is going to be met with objection and delay.

Instead, let’s build more of the bird blenders.

Windmills are a centerpiece of Obama’s energy plans for the nation.

We’ve already documented how wind power subsidies take from the windless to give to the winded, and some problems when the wind blows too much.

Here’s another, from Britain, regarding noise pollution:

Wind turbines are being turned off during high winds because they are too...

Much like windmills, Obama’s energy plans for the country turn on “green” energy like LED lighting.

From The White House website:

Today’s Recovery Act in Action episode takes place in Durham, NC at Cree, Inc., America’s foremost producer of LED lighting.  It’s a tale of many important economic advances coming together: cutting- edge...

When I dubbed the nascent Solyndra scandal “Teapot Solyndra” in memory of the Teapot Dome Scandal, I worried that I might be getting ahead of myself.

But with this administration, it’s hard to get ahead of oneself.  Fearing the worst usually is the safest bet.

And that worst fear seems to becoming true, as the coordination...

I’ve been receiving e-mails from readers in the past weeks insisting that Obama would kill the pipeline planned to bring “oil sands” oil from Canada to the U.S.  Given the Obama administration’s policies to date, such expectation was reasonable.

The environmental movement made the oil sands pipeline a line in the,...

You know how much Obama loves windmills, and how overblown is the future of wind power.

In Britain they have been pushing wind power far harder and longer than we have, and it is turning into a fiasco of subsidies from the windless masses to the winded-gentry.

Taking wasted energy from auto traffic and turning it into electricity sounds hard to believe, but these Israeli researchers may be onto something (h/t LukeHandCool):

Scientists in Israel say they have invented a way of turning traffic into electricity.

Because as we know, windmills are our future.

While I did send a Tweet, I didn’t get to follow the Twitter Townhall.

Please tell me, did he mention windmills? or at least “wind energy”?

Yes, “drill baby drill” will not increase the supply of oil this month, but if we had been drilling baby drilling the past two and one-half years, instead of stifling production almost everywhere, we would not need to be releasing our strategic petroleum reserves.
