In the Pipeline: 5/8/13

Their machine is impressive and sinister. The goal is to “Organize for Automation”, remove your individual identity, and replace it with a lump of collectivity. 



Drinking champagne every night sounds appealing too, but there’s a reason most people don’t do it. Civitas Institute (5/8/13) reports: “North Carolinians oppose the state law requiring utility companies to purchase a percentage of their energy from so-called renewable energy sources by more than 3-to-1, according to a new Civitas Institute poll. Additionally, ratepayers strongly oppose the use of such energy sources as wind or solar if it means paying higher utility bills… ‘North Carolinians may feel that using renewable energy sounds appealing — but they don’t want to be forced to pay higher prices for it,’ said Civitas President Francis X. De Luca.”


Bob Inglis has been doing a lot of soul searching, and apparently crushing the lives of poor people is the answer to his salvation. Politico (5/6/13) reports: “’Losing an election is not the worst thing that can happen to you. Losing your soul is considerably worse.’… The controversial tax proposal has long won the backing of many economists, who say it is the simplest and purest means of reducing emissions blamed for contributing to climate change. And while it has also won tentative backing from oil giants like Shell and ExxonMobil, it’s been pilloried by many oil-state politicians and conservatives, who say it would raise energy costs and hurt fossil fuel industries.”


I can’t wait to drive a hovercraft. Hopefully the government doesn’t put a noose around the industry with their special way of doing things. WSJ (5/6/13) reports: “Terrafugia Inc., the Woburn, Mass., company developing the Transition flying car, said it plans to begin delivering the vehicle to customers in 2015 or 2016. In the meantime it is working on a successor model called the TF-X, which will take off and land vertically, fly at more than 200 mph and seat four people… The TF-X is also a plug-in hybrid. It uses electric motors and tilting rotor blades take off and a gasoline engine and ducted fan to propel it in forward flight.”


Apparently wind hit a “turning point” in 1981, nine years before the wind PTC was enacted. Is the joke on them or on us? MasterResource (5/6/13) reports: “It is entertaining and even humorous to bring up the “oil short world” and wind power’s “turning point” in today’s energy debate. Oil is more abundant than ever and growing in reserves and resources as technology improves. Wind power remains intermittent and government-dependent some decades after Flavin declared its tipping point reached.”

Warning! Graphic picture of government-sponsored killing!
