Energy, Fusion and Obama

While I am an anthropogenic global warming skeptic and think that the "green energy" being pushed down our throats is a disaster waiting to happen, I do believe that in a few decades, we will see a revolution in energy arising out of the experiments now being conducted in fusion. Check out some of these links:

National Ignition Facility from today's NYT.

International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) in France.

And follow the links at Power and Control, a great site for following the advances in energy and fusion in particular.

The danger between now and then is that Obama and the left do irreparable harm to our economy by one, cap and trade, and two, refusing to allow us to exploit our domestic energy resources. Do recall that during the campaign, Obama promised to allow additional off-shore drilling as gas prices topped $4 a gallon. Is anyone surprised that this was pure bull, and that Obama, now in power, is pursuing the opposite course. This is setting us up for a true disaster as we will be ever more dependant on foreign oil - and oil will continue to rise.

One thing you can be sure of mate, the leftist will largely oppose anything that actually works. If it contains the word 'nuclear' in it, they'll run screaming hysterically from the room and will never support it.

The only thing 'nuclear', those baboons will support is if it's being acquired or developed by some 3rd world shithole that hates America.

And then Obambi will use the fact that America is dependant on foreign oil as an excuse to avoid upsetting the islamists.....
Nice Chicago weasel-work.
