Oil washes ashore at Grand Isle Louisiana UPI PhotoFrom: http://www.upi.com/News_Photos/News/Gulf-oil-spill-closes-Louisiana-beach/3342/2/
Soaked in oil, a seabird lies dead in the surf on Elmer's Island, Louisiana, May 21, 2010. Oil began washing up on the beaches and marshes of Southern Louisiana after the explosion of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig a month ago. UPI/A.J. Sisco
Is this a picture of a 'Phoenix' for us? No. I think that God is giving us message which is loud and clear. Already I hear our President obfuscating about this issue and already he is pumping out 'the Green Initiative'. Again we are being regaled with his lofty and empty rhetoric as to 'how this oil spill definitively points to 'evils' of petroleum fuels. Of course Obama says this; it's his bread and butter. And of course it's "Obama's Katrina". It'll be "Obama's Katrina x 14.078 Trillion (that number is the estimated national debt for 2010 in case you haven't been paying attention). Just watch.
The other day, I watched a child prodigy explain why she'd 'switched her high school science project from solar to something else'. She explained that where she lived, it was 'cloudy all the time and she couldn't get her projects to work well'. Surprise, surprise. Kids today are smart.
All I ask is why we can't be like the French who currently get 75% plus of their electricity from Nuclear Energy. http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/inf40.html
Nuclear Power is 'here', it's powerful, it's clean and it's safe when used properly by those who are not ignorant about it's use. But plugging nuclear power here would be as insensitive as what the 'Greenies' are doing.
Personally, I think solar energy is dead in the water before it will ever take off. Why? Between natural disasters (volcanic eruptions/ash cloud accumulations, lightning-induced fires, etc) and man-made ones (oil spills which ignite either at the hands of humans or nature)...And with the use of coal in China and elsewhere polluting the dickens out of our atmosphere...We don't have a snowball's chance in the Sahara of having 'clear enough skies' to satisfy the 'Greenies' lust for solar technology. In simple terms: we won't have enough sunlight to make solar energy very useful.
Poor Al Gore and his posse. Not only is his 'global warming agenda' now totally debunked as 'junk science', but his financial investments are now also at risk, given what we now know about the state of affairs of earth's atmosphere and ionosphere. (Stay tuned for a piece on the latter which will prove to you once and for all what dolts we are for fouling our own nest with 'HAARP' for those of you who are up to yet another technical treatise at http://www.dearoneshealingministry.blogspot.com/)
And poor Al Gore as he gets 'outted' for the fuel-guzzling jet-setting 'lifestyle' he consistently maintains. It can't be easy for the man to be such a hypocrite. You'd think that a guy who's smart enough to invent the Internet would be able to put '2 and 2 together' for himself, but not Al Gore. He belongs to that dying generation who thinks that we people are 'just too dumb' to see what he is doing. He also thinks that we noodnicks won't speak out. He thinks 'we're just stuck on stupid'. But we're going to fool him, because we're not.
But there's a new paradigm for 2010 now. For me personally, I'm the little 'phoenix' myself rising up out of the ashes of political disinterest up to a vital interest and activity in the TEA PARTY MOVEMENT. I must say it feels really good to be 'liberated' not just from the anti-white, heterophobic, anti-American, anti-Israeli politics of my former church, the UCC (better known as the Obama/Wright church)...But it is also feels great to be able to 'do something' other than sit on the sidelines and wring my hands (not that I'm the type to wring my hands, actually, but you get the idea). Now I understand why the progressive-lib culture I've been immersed in is so damn political--it's LIBERATING and EMPOWERING, is why and I think I LOVE it!
Still, no matter how hard I try, I still honor my root sensitivities. I watch things like this below and I weep for all involved. I'm not self-centered enough to promote my own political agenda at the cost of those who suffer. It's not time for me to 'push a nuclear agenda'. It's not time for the 'Greenies' to push their phoney 'global warming' agendas and it's not time to peddle the solar panel business sector. It's time to get busy and band together and help with this oil spill. It's time to act like sentient human beings and understand and be empathetic to the harm and grief being done to those in the Gulf area--to humans, animals and ecosystems, alike.
Watch this below. If you don't feel this man's pain, you're just...well, you are just what you are.
I pray God has mercy on us all.
