How many coal plants are there in the world?

The EU has 468 – building 27 more… Total 495
Turkey has 56 – building 93 more… Total 149
South Africa has 79 – building 24 more… Total 103
India has 589 – building 446 more… Total 1036
Philippines has 19 – building 60 more… Total 79
South Korea has 58 – building 26 more… Total 84
Japan has 90 – building 45 more… Total 135
China has 2363 – building 1171 more… Total 3534
That’s 5,615 projected coal powered plants in 8 regions/countries.

USA has 15 – building 0 more… Total 15

Now the Democrat politicians want to shut down those 15 plants in order to “save the planet” ?!?!?

Can someone explain the reasoning behind this to me?

Bird’s Eye View


A WORD FROM: THE WISE

 

Now that impeachment is a foregone conclusion in the House, it is time to speculate what will happen in the Senate. First, however, we need to know how many Dems vote against impeachment in the House because that will drive some of the follow up options. If just a few defect (maybe 1-6) I think it will dictate a strong defense response in the Senate, with the President’s team leading the charge. If more than 6 defect and the number gets into the teens, I think the Senate plan will be scaled back some to allow a little wiggle room and a quick end of the trial. But the one thing that Trump will insist on is to demand a vote in the Senate after a trial to completely find him innocent of all charges.

 

So, as I understand the House voting, they will have a separate vote on each charge. Don’t be surprised if many of those 31 Dems from districts that Trump won in 2016 vote for one article and against one article. That way they can say they considered all the evidence and supported one part but not the other. Will that satisfy voters in their districts? I doubt it. But that is their problem and one which will stay with them until the 2020 elections.

 

There will be one other required vote. That will be to pick the floor manager for the Senate trial. So who will Pelosi put forth to present their case to the Senate? My guess is that Shifty Schiff will be that person. I think they want to shield him from being called as a fact witness in the trial. But if he is appointed manager, I think that Trump will insist that he be called as a witness. Can you imagine the wrangling that will take place when that day comes? I suspect that Roberts will have to rule on that situation. But in the end, I can see no good legal argument to prevent him from testifying. 

 

Did you see that Trump is considering hiring Alan Dershowitz to his impeachment team? That would be a strong person to provide guidance on constitutional issues. He has clearly stated that the Dems have no legal basis for impeachment so he can provide arguments to bolster the President’s case. I think Trump wants to punish the Democrat Party and make this impeachment an example so that it never happens again. The more he is able to destroy their position, the weaker the Dems become – especially as it pertains to the 2020 elections. I think Trump also sees an opportunity to cause political heartburn for the senators running for the Democrat nomination. Keep them bottled up in Washington for 6 days a week without any opportunities to campaign for the major primaries in February and March. Of course they will blame him for interfering with their campaigns! 

 

The one interesting discussion that may help with the Trump election campaign is the recent statements by various Dems that if they fail on this impeachment attempt that they are already talking about another impeachment ordeal in the near future. If there is one thing that the vast majority of Americans do not want it is to go through this process again. Just mentioning a second impeachment may result in a significant shift in votes to Trump and away from Dems. I believe many voters already feel that giving the Dems control of the House in 2018 was a major mistake. They have done nothing meaningful to help average Americans. Why would we want another 2 years of more impeachments and no legislation?

Bojo gets his majority.  Maybe now he can exit the European Union.  He might also borrow some hairdo money from the French.

The Editor:  Are you wrapping  Christmas presents, LL ?

The End Cat:  This wraps up the Trump investigation for me.  The impeachment will also be full of lies and crooked government employees.  I don’t have much optimism  for America’s future.  The institutions like the FBI, Congress, and eighteen ( 18 ) intelligence agencies have too many political motivated employees for a free country.  Obama, the Clintons, and their boot-lickers can worry about their legacy.  That’s what we have—- a government and press that can’t be believed.

I hope KARMA visits the families of these degenerate, putrid, creatures.  Hunter Biden has already had a visit.

TE:  Are these accurate ads, TEC ?

What A Joke Cat:  Not much about politics is accurate or honest.  Think of it as paying someone to rob you and take away your freedom.

Those dems have/had a crazy party, but it’s over.

Sarvis Fork Covered Bridge

WGN 48-18-01 – Sarvis Fork or Sandyville CB -West Virginia- built in 1889 in Jackson Co. spanning Left Fork Sandy Creek on Sarvis Fork Rd. 1 span, 102 ft. long, Brown trusses w/arch

Sarvis Fork or New Era Bridge over Left Fork, Sandy Creek was built in 2000. The previous covered bridge at this location was built in 1889, 1890 or 1892. It was abandoned and relocated in 1924 after a metal bridge was built nearby. In 2000, extensive repairs were made to the bridge such as replacing the floor system with timber decking on steel stringers, installing a stainless steel roof and replacing wooden siding where necessary.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Interstellar Comet 2I/Borisov

Explanation: From somewhere else in the Milky Way galaxy, Comet 2I/Borisov is just visiting the Solar System. Discovered by Crimean amateur astronomer Gennady Borisov on August 30, 2019, the first known interstellar comet is captured in these two recent Hubble Space Telescope images. On the left, a distant background galaxy near the line-of-sight to Borisov is blurred as Hubble tracked the speeding comet and dust tail about 327 million kilometers from Earth. At right, 2I/Borisov appears shortly after perihelion, it’s closest approach to Sun. Borisov’s closest approach to our fair planet, a distance of about 290 million kilometers, will come on December 28. Even though Hubble’s sharp images don’t resolve the comet’s nucleus, they do lead to estimates of less than 1 kilometer for its diameter.
