I agree Ute Alum, Barry is far from the smartest man in the room, unless he is alone with Biden and Reid in an elevator..........he hasn't a clue how to increase renewable energy, but he knows how to spend money on companies that go eventually go bankrupt......he is the new Bernie Madoff

Three states now get more than 20 percent of their electricity from wind power -- Iowa, Kansas, and South Dakota -- all conservative, rural ag states that see the economic and water-saving benefits of renewables.

Mitt was so hung up on trying to court the coal vote, and he essentially lost key battleground states to Obama because of his anti-renewable energy stance.

It's true that coal provides a lot of jobs, especially in the healthcare and insurance industries to manage black lung disease and other ailments in Utah's rural communities. But, renewables can provide rural jobs that don't require people to suffer from sickness by coal mining and pollution. People need to think about what's more important: More work for doctors or people's health?

Don't be too hasty, here! The president does have the power to change certain laws -- maybe it includes the second law of thermodynamics. After all, he does seem to have some affinity for entropy.

You mean like spreading around the love?,
not letting the Coal and Oil company hold a century long Monopoly?,
Not putting ALL of our energy eggs needs in ONE basket?,
steering away from dependence of Foreign sources to fuel from our sworn enemies to lube and drive our economy?

Seems like the President IS smarter than most drill and burn conservatives [who conserve exactly what?]

Meanwhile --
Enjoy those Communist Chinese made Wind turbines and Middle Eastern Oil America.
