there is a traitor among us
:)-
All politicians are traitors...

The Government is supposed to be
Of the people
By the people
For the people.

So we got one of the three left...
How much longer before we lose voting?
Its not like we really get a real choice in who we vote for.
It's not like the people put up to vote for are just one of us...they are all millionaires.
Then when they get into office they shove money by the double handfuls into their pockets.

Do you know how much oil and coal China uses? I don't, but I know they are gorging on oil from Russia and Saudi Arabia.

Chinese coal-burning particulates are landing on Montana.
If you have a problem with coal you should take this up with Senator Joe Manchin.
Manchin is the biggest defender of coal. He blocks any Senate attempt to reduce the use of coal. He is personally making millions off of coal.

B.T.W. Carbon Dioxide is not a deadly gas like carbon monoxide.

Animals inhale oxygen and exhale Carbon Dioxide
Plants inhale Carbon Dioxide and exhale Oxygen.
It is referred to as the tree of life

Diesel engines produce carbon monoxide, a deadly gas.

Just wait until they find out about PPM levels.

The CCP is playing the West, and particularly the Biden-Harris Junta, for fools (not that that isn't easy to do to the Junta).



The Biden administration has approved a massive solar power project in California that will produce enough power to electrify 90,000 homes. That’s the good news. The bad news is that producing the solar panels in China using coal-fired electrical power plants to generate electricity will produce almost as much CO2 as the fossil fuel plants the solar power is supposed to replace.






Manufacturing solar panels is a dirty business. Starting with the raw mineral quartz, the refining process produces the highly toxic substance, silicon tetrachloride, that some manufacturers simply end up dumping. Huge amounts of power and heat must be used to manufacture the photovoltaic cells.


Since most solar cells in the west are manufactured in China, that heat and power are generated by coal-fired electricity. Maybe someone should ask why we’re buying solar cells to save the planet from carbon pollution when the process of making them not only poisons the earth but dumps as much carbon into the atmosphere as energy produced solely by fossil fuels.


Wall Street Journal:








It’s true that after a few years of operation, a solar panel will eventually lead to a net reduction in carbon emissions compared to power generated by fossil fuels. But is the loss in efficient generation of power worth the difference?

...



So what are you going to do about China?
