  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Obama Keeps His Energy Promise

    Editor's note: Notice the year.  The new EPA rules will be causing the Marquette facility to go offline to be a part of the problem.  They have three years before the rates 'necessarily skyrocket'. - JGillman

    via The Lonely Conservative

    President Obama's anti-coal policies are about to hit millions of Americans in the wallet. Get ready for the great, big Obama-bump in your electric bill.

    Last week the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported a shocking drop in power sector coal consumption in the first quarter of 2012. Coal-fired power plants are now generating just 36 percent of U.S. electricity, versus 44.6 percent just one year ago.

    It's the result of an unprecedented regulatory assault on coal that will leave us all much poorer.

    Last week PJM Interconnection, the company that operates the electric grid for 13 states (Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee,  Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia) held its 2015 capacity auction. These are the first real, market prices that take Obama's most recent anti-coal regulations into account, and they prove that he is keeping his 2008 campaign promise to make electricity prices "necessarily skyrocket."

    The market-clearing price for new 2015 capacity - almost all natural gas - was $136 per megawatt. That's eight times higher than the price for 2012, which was just $16 per megawatt. In the mid-Atlantic area covering New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and DC the new price is $167 per megawatt. For the northern Ohio territory served by FirstEnergy, the price is a shocking $357 per megawatt.

    Upton's Own Words

    Lest anyone become confused about Fred Upton's positions on 'climate change', they might perhaps take time to read this at the Madison Project:
    "I have said at nearly every climate change hearing that for me I don't dispute the science.  Right or wrong, the debate over the modeling and science appears to be over."

    Guess who said that?  While those comments appear similar to the sentiments expressed by the likes of Al Gore, it was actually Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton who said it during a 2009 hearing before an E&C subcommittee hearing.

    Yeah.  Not so long ago either.  The debate is over huh?

    And people wonder why there isn't excitement in the elections any longer.

    The Madison project points out what everyone should know, that Upton would be as comfortable on the left side of the aisle as he is presumably, by voting with the Republican Caucus.  Aside from the several extreme environmental in-your-face regulatory votes where he did in fact jump ship and vote left of center.  Like THIS VOTE. Or even a famous vote banning the incandescent bulb, and costing US Jobs in the process.

    Yay! Pelosi! Woot!  Aren't you proud???!

    Retire Fred.  Your heretical pandering to the big government left ideals is pathetic.

    I'm with the Madison Project.  I wonder if it isn't time to go here?: DONATE TO HOOGENDYK?

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Wednesdays Divertere: A Reagan Era Thorn Still Sticks In My Side

    Newt, the 'pathway' didn't work for Reagan in a much more sane 1986, and it won't work for you now.  Your newly found papal 'moderate' pandering for the establishment nomination is quite sickening.

    Political Agenda with Danian Michael

    Fourteen years ago when I was starting out my career as an engineer and working on my first project, one of the things I remember was four years of college was not offering me any comfort as I tried to solve problems. The obstacles I was trying to surmount on the job did not look anything like the problems I was presented with on a test. The way I dealt with my inexperience was to befriend the wisest engineer I could find. His name was Paul Growth, and he was the kind of person who was designed by God to solve engineering problems. Paul Growth was a natural leader and a no-nonsense man. He was 67 years old when I met him, and he had the ability to bring calm into any chaotic situation. Our clients loved him too; because they knew their money would be well spent. I miss Paul and wish he were still alive so that I could thank him for teaching me a very valuable lesson.

    This is one of our Senators!

    For Michigan voters who continually elect Debbie Stabenow to represent us in the Senate, I hope you are proud of her.  As she advocates massive tax increases on Michigan businesses, through the cap and confiscate bill, you should be comforted in the fact that Stabenow can "feel global warming when she flies".

    From Henry Payne's Sketchbook at Detroit News dot com:

    "Climate change is very real," she confessed as she embraced cap and trade's massive tax increase on Michigan industry - at the same time claiming, against all the evidence, that it would not lead to an increase in manufacturing costs or energy prices. "Global warming creates volatility. I feel it when I'm flying. The storms are more volatile. We are paying the price in more hurricanes and tornadoes."

    Michigan, we voted for Levin, Granholm and Stabenow, this is what we get!

    God help us!

    The Goracle

    Tags: Al Gore, Global Warming, Climate Change (all tags)

    The day after a snow and ice storm hit Washington D.C., Al Gore aka Algore aka the Goracle, was warning the senate about Global Warming.  Gore, a blithering idiot by any normal person's standards, was in front of the right audience.  In fact, the abomination that is the U.S. Senate, provided the Goracle the only forum in which he wouldn't be laughed out of the room or escorted out in a straight jacket.  In fact, it appeared that the senate was actually taking the Goracle seriously, which may explain why it is hard to take the senate seriously.
