B.O. Funds Energy with B.S.

Written by Gary North on April 13, 2012

The Obama Administration has come up with a great idea. It will have the Department of Agriculture give $5 million to construct a biogas anaerobic digester.

What, pray tell, is that? It’s a way to convert bovine droppings into heat. To heat what? An ethanol plant.

This will create 15 new jobs.

Think of it. Only $5 million to create 15 jobs. This is change we can believe in.

This was such a great deal that the private firm that will save lots of money by using the droppings thought the USDA should get all the credit for this great idea. So, the firm will let the USDA fund the project.

Is this patriotic or what?

It will replace 90% of the fossil fuels. This is green energy in action.

Well, maybe not green.

The USDA Secretary announced this: “Projects such as this are a key part of the Obama Administration’s all-of-the-above approach to American energy that is supporting the development and usage of renewable energy, revitalizing rural economies and creating an America built to last.” It is an example of how America can reduce its dependence on foreign oil.

Call it a blow against Peak Oil.

“Animal waste from a local feedlot will be the primary feedstock that Western Plains will use for the digester. Support for renewable energy projects such as these is an example of the many ways USDA is helping revitalize rural economies.”

Now, all they need to do is get another $5 million. And another. And another.

This is B.S. in action.

  1. I think the white house is powered by B.S.

  2. If we could just harness all the B.S. the rewards would be astounding, I calculate that it could power all of our energy needs for the next 1,000 years

  3. Thought II… For some reason, was not one of the main causes of our Carbon footprints based on Cow Farts? How appropriate.

  4. NOT A GREAT IDEA JUST ANOTHER DISTRUCTIVE MOVE ON HIS PART

  7. SORRY DOES NOT GIVE A CRAP

  8. Always remember our governments main function is to help the population get to the poor house

    But why limit to bovine sources? There is much more BS coming from the Whitehouse and Democratic Senate. Oh – I forgot! Nothing comes from the Democratic Senate!

  10. just because they are democrats does not make them democratic

  11. This is right up there with the algae as the new bio-fuel. The Progs will just never get the idea that innovation comes from individuals and that if there were a viable market for any of these "alternative" fuels they would have been developed. anything that cannot exist without continued subsidies is going to fail.
    I agree with other comments that this regime has an overabundance of BS.

  12. just sayin' says:

    If they could just harness all the hot air that comes out of politicians' mouths, it could heat washington forever. How can we get more politicians so we can heat the rest of the country or are we going to be forced to deal with energy sources that are more difficult to acquire, but much easier to harness?

    HEATING THE PLANT WITH THE ETHANOL THAT THE PLANT PRODUCES WOULD BE WAY TO LOGICAL FOR THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. "Ah, Ahh, Ahhh Obama, Ah 2012."

    John the white mosque is powered on manure, why spend our money, his whole czar family have enough of manure in their mouths and other ends to fuel the whole country.
