Bush has now declared that COAL is NOT a "fossil fuel"...<br><br>amazing..<br><br> "The Daily Show" recently aired a clip of a Bush speech in which he said the nation had to move away from reliance on "fossil fuels," followed by a clip later in the speech of Bush announcing a new energy initiative focused on . . . COAL. <br> The absurdity was so apparent that Jon Stewart's double-take wasn't needed. "<br> Nation needs reminder that oil won't last <br><br>now if that isn't proof that others (Rove, Cheney, etc) aren't putting words in W's mouth when he looks decent, and are using W as a front "stooge" then you're in heavy denial and no one on this whole frikin planet could ever convince you the earth is a shpere and not flat !!<br><br>yes we have the "flat earth" society, and <br>the "Bush has intelligence" society... both pretty fringe groups.<br><br><br><br>Someone also told me in a recent Bush interview when the got "off script" talking about stem cells he was pretty rediculous too, but I haven't seen that one.<br><br>David (OFI)
While coal is most definitely a fossil fuel, there is no need to reduce our reliance on it. There's an endless supply, it's cheap and cleaner coal burners in cities have improved the pollution situation when it comes to generating electricity. <br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Bush has now declared that COAL is NOT a "fossil fuel"...<p><hr></blockquote><p>Really?<br><br>Press Conference. May 27, 2005<br><br>Here, Bush talks about looking at ways to clean up existing technology:<br><br><blockquote>Technology also allows us to use our most abundant energy source in a smart way. America as enough coal to last for 250 years. But coal presents an environmental challenge. To make cleaner use of this resource, I have asked Congress for more than $2 billion over 10 years for my coal research initiative. It's a program that will encourage new technologies that remove virtually all pollutants from coal-fired power plants. My Clear Skies initiative will result in more than $52 billion in investment in clean coal technologies by the private sector. To achieve greater energy dependence, we must put technology to work so we can harness the power of clean coal.</blockquote><br><br>And, a little later, Bush talks about moving away from dependency on fossil fuels:<br><br><blockquote>In other words, we're developing new technologies that will change the way we drive. See, I know what we're going to need to do for a generation to come. We need to get on a path away from the fossil fuel economy. If we want to be less dependent on foreign sources of energy, we must develop new ways to power automobiles. My administration is committed to finding those news ways, and we're working with industry to do so.</blockquote><br><br>Uh, say David, where did Bush proclaim coal .. not .. a fossil fuel? I'm lookin', bud, and I just can't find it.<br><br>Oh nevermind. I'll cut to the chase. Goin' out on a limb here, Dave: Perhaps you need to look at what Bush actually said versus edited fodder on a comedy show made to get mental midgets like you in a foaming tizzy. Guess what ... IT WORKED! <br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>but I haven't seen that one.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Exactly!<br><br>And one more thing, the word is ridiculous, not redicuous.<br><br>****************<br>

Matt, Matt, Matt, tisk tisk. Come on buddy. By now you should know better. Dems and Libs don't live in reality. Media takes facts they don't like, clip here, past there and Wa La you now have The New Truth. <br><br>They'll edit sound bites together so they could have Gandi saying he's for capital punishment if it suited their purpose.<br><br>

Is it being shipped in from other planets? It's finite.<br><br>"cleaner coal burners"? Cleaner than what? Perhaps newer technologies have reduced the amount of toxins produced by burning coal, but that's no excuse for the continued pumping of pure poisons into the air you breathe.<br><br>"improved the pollution situation"? Only slightly - there are MUCH better ways to greatly reduce air pollution - but they don't put the profits directly into the pockets of those who decide who lives and who dies.<br><br>All this short term thinking has to STOP!<br><br>- alec
Dems and Libs don't live in reality. Media takes facts they don't like, clip here, past there and Wa La you now have The New Truth<br><br>Don't you know we're all "trained to disassemble" <br><br><br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>All this short term thinking has to STOP!<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>Well since you're so enlightened. What are the answers then?<br><br><br><br>We all do what we do for the same reason: because it seems like a good idea at the time.
_________________________ I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.
it was metaphoric** Matt (** see ur Funk and Wagnels )<br><br>no he actually didn't say those exact words (but they were implied) ... but can't you see the irony?<br><br>one minute he touts "we must reduce our dependency on fossil fuels!!"<br>then a few sentences later he announced the greatness of using coal - which is a fossil fuel !! (a fact we all learned in about 4th grade, Matt)<br><br> he's totally contradictory which is his usual mode..<br>talks about the sancity of life- fertilized eggs- but sends thousands to die in a needless war founded on intelligence hype and lies. - again totally contradictory.<br><br>and even worse he talks about coal supplies being infinite- like it's a replenishable or renewable energy source.. want a moron !<br><br>but i forgot you were a member of the "flat earth society".<br><br>David (OFI)<br>
