What is 21st Century Coal?
October 4, 2011 Leave a comment
Today, President Barack Obama and President Hu Jintao pledged to promote cooperation on cleaner uses of coal, including large-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) demonstration projects. Through the new U.S.-China Clean Energy Research Center, the two countries are launching a program to bring teams of U.S. and Chinese scientists and engineers together in developing clean coal and CCS technologies. The two countries are also actively engaging industry, academia and civil society in advancing clean coal and CCS solutions.
Why would the USA want to participate in carbon dioxide capturing and storage? The White House discloses the intentions and purpose;
“Collaborating in the development of clean coal and CCS solutions in China will open new markets for U.S. businesses and workers and, through the insights gained in the process, help accelerate CCS deployment in the United States.”
In conclusion, Southern Company wants to develop 21st century coal plants which capture and store carbon dioxide for the purpose of opening Carbon Dioxide markets (carbon trading) in the United States for the profit of selected businesses and the demise of others. So Southern Company exposed their hand to us initially suggesting that carbon dioxide capturing was for the purpose of environmental protection and saving lives from premature deaths related to global warming caused by CO2, but in reality 21ST CENTURY COAL is nothing more than a platform to launch Carbon Trading on NASDAQ.
Why should Mississippi ratepayers be forced to pay into what appears to be a pyramid-like scheme disguised as your electric bill. Mississippi power will simply raise your electric rate, the electric rate of your grocery store, barber, church, gas station, and so on. Even if you are not a Mississippi Power customer you can see how any rate increase this vast across Mississippi will affect every citizen. Therefore I see nominal benefits and great risk to the ratepayer but phenomenal benefits to those pushing “21st century coal” for their diversified investment portfolio.
We can further conclude that the Public Service Commissioners have decided incorrectly when they voted 2-1 in favor of placing the burden of financing the experimental demonstration lignite coal plant in Kemper County upon the backs of the ratepayers.
As a side note: There is a pattern that you may want to be aware of, whenever there is United Nations involvement, the term “accelerate” is used. It is imperative that the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other United Nations supported organizations, both government and non-government, expedite their policies before the American citizens understand their Agenda and take action to stop it. The Green Agenda is not environmental, environmentalism is the smokescreen used to accomplish their goals.
Now go back and look at what the Press Secretary of the White House said,”that the two countries are actively engaging civil society.” Do you understand what “engaging civil society” means? Obama’s staff wrote that specifically for a purpose. It comes back to utilizing terminology that sounds benign, beneficial, and safe but in reality it has a completely different meaning and purpose than what American citizens would expect. This is another example of intentional deception. keep up the research for you are in for a BIG surprise.
Oct 2 2011 Thomas Fanning, Southern Company chief executive, tells the FT’s Ed Crooks that the company is pressing ahead with its plans to build two new reactors in Georgia. Nuclear power is important for diversifying energy supplies, he says.
