UN climate chief Christiana Figueres has stated that Australia must stop mining coal.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald;
Speaking at a conference in Melbourne on Wednesday, Christiana Figueres drew a parallel between Australia and the oil kingdom [Saudi Arabia] as countries that would need to diversify their economies as the world grapples with global warming.
Ms Figueres said ultimately Australia would have to move away from coal for environmental reasons and changes in global economic patterns. She said nobody was saying this would have to happen overnight, but the transition should be orderly, gradual and progressive.
‘”The science is very clear, there is no space for any new coal,” she said.

Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently informed the nation that July Fourth isn’t just for fireworks and independence any more. It is also the day we should “celebrate” Obamacare.

From the San Francisco lady herself. Do we need any more proof that progressives really want us to forget the history of our country? Here’s what she said in a press briefing recorded by CSPAN….
“Pretty soon we’ll all be leaving for the Fourth of July recess. Next week, when we celebrate Independence Day we’ll also be observing health independence.
This week marks one year since the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. It captures the spirit of our founders. The spirit they wrote in the Declaration of Independence: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The Affordable Care Act offers just that–a healthier life and the liberty to pursue a person’s happiness to be free of constraint, be job-locked, because they’re policy-locked and so if you wanted to be a cameraman, a writer, you want to be self employed, if you want to be, start a business, if you want to change jobs, whatever it is you want to do you are free, you have the liberty to do.
So, we’ve had Social Security, Medicare, and now health independence, and that’s something our members will take home to celebrate over this Independence Day.”
Yes, Nancy, I will certainly be celebrating health independence…independence from an oppressive, tyrannical federal government that deserves all the de-funding I and every other red-blooded, freedom-loving American can and should muster. Godspeed to you.
I’d post her photo, but I don’t want to. Instead I will post this…
….as the list of the People’s grievances continues to grow…..
The Obama campaign of 2008 has now stepped it up a few notches. Remember that net neutrality thing the government was talking about as so necessary for fairness reasons? Well, now it’s entirely possible your personal emails will now be delivered with an ad for Obama’s 2012 re-election.
