Elusive Goal of Greening U.S. Energy
By STEVEN GREENHOUSE, Dec 2, 2009
The Great Green Hope for lifting America’s economy is not looking so robust.
Growth in clean energy industries and in green jobs has been considerably slower and bumpier than anticipated, industry experts say.
Last week, the Gamesa wind turbine plant in western Pennsylvania announced it was laying off nearly half its 280 workers. Last month, General Electric said it would close a solar panel factory in Delaware
There are myriad reasons why green jobs have grown more slowly than hoped. The clean energy component of the $787 billion stimulus package has only recently started to kick in. Energy experts say that banks, which have been reluctant to lend generally, have been especially loath to lend for alternative energy projects.
And renewable-energy companies are hesitating to invest in new plants and equipment before Congress enacts new environmental mandates, like cap and trade, to limit carbon emissions.

NBC has just hired this person, who is expressing her opinion of the media for which she will now be working:
Yup, you got that right, it’s Jenna Bush, now a budding “Washington-based correspondent” for NBC “news”.
Maybe they need someone to give a story on where you can best get blink-stinking-drunk in Washington D.C.:
I guess it’s GE’s attempt to curry favor with the Bush family, a family who allowed GE to add billions of dollars to its bottom line by declaring an endless, massive, completely illegal war back in 2003. GE’s annual report said that the Iraq War was going to be worth several billion dollars to its bottom line. And that was before the war really even got going!
So the favor is returned, and the spoiled little brat gets a plum gig with Daddy’s friends.

NBC/GE is holding a presidential debate in Nevada tomorrow, January 15, 2008! They had invited four candidates to the event, as all of them had met NBC/GE’s criteria for the event. The four candidates were to be JE, HRC, BO and DK!

Well, the big three only supporters have their wish. The January 15 debate will now be a three centerist candidate confab!

subtitled: America, the militia with corporate sponsorship.
We all know that Blackwater is made up of American militia members, often addicted to crystal meth, known for their racial hatred and itchy trigger fingers. We also know that Exxon and other oil firms have been using Blackwater for some time now. So I say let a few guys from Exxon and all of Blackwater stay to guard their precious oil and let everyone else come home. This is the Exxon War after all, so let’s let a few tweakers go down in flames in Iraq and bring back our honorable soldiers.
Now let’s take a look at a few other corporate sponsors of the Exxon War below the fold.
