This image that came across Facebook prompted me to do a bit of exploring. Just so you know right away, this graphic is not entirely correct, but close. LOL… one thing I definitely found was depending upon the site the information on energy production, consumption, waste, etc. varies enormously depending upon the website’s affiliation to what power source. I expected some favoritism, but found many creative ways for a website to promote it’s energy source with statistics. Funny how each energy source seems to be the best…. More…
ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson says fears about climate change, drilling, and energy dependence are overblown.

I checked out #keystone on Twitter a while ago and just happened to catch Boehners tweet that Obama is killing thousands of jobs. Well, horse hockies! Do people really buy this line of crap? And as if this is the only source of jobs available in this country? First of all, bring back all our jobs that are now overseas – such as the 200,000 jobs displaced to China via Wal-Mart. This alone will well exceed Boehners over-inflated amount of jobs from the Keystone XL pipeline. I just bet that ol’ Sam Walton is turning over in his grave since he did found his company on the belief of all Made in the USA products – then his money-grubbing children changed all that. What about a combination of American companies, not just Wal-Mart? The Economic Policy Institute, a Washington think tank, says American companies have created 1.4 million jobs overseas in 2010. More…
