image Have no fear, the Vending Machine Menace is over

Yes, the sixth mass extinction is underway. Yes, hundreds of species on Earth disappear every day. Yes, carbon emissions are skyrocketing and there is no end in sight. But there is SOME good news on the horizon…

The Obama Administration is opening a can of whoop ass on vending machine emissions (fumes?) and the world shall now be saved.

No such lag in planetary destruction ever happens in the DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy. No way. While everyone else seems to be asleep at the wheel, the Fossil Energy rascals manage to amaze (and annoy) me every single time I look at what they’re up to.

Just looking at the Office of Fossil Energy’s announcements for TODAY, for example, I could have saved America $17,124,132 in just one whack, and I’d have actually done something tangible to help the environment. Because every day is “Christmas” over there, and a Fossil Fuel Angel always gets their wings.

So, for today, I’d redline this ridiculous DOE Ponzi scheme, err, program which is totally not going to work any time soon. Nixing this corporate welfare handout would save $14,574,237 right there!

And we can get rid of this stupid program for COAL, which is just throwing money away.  If we got rid of this handout, we’d save ourselves $2,399,895 and probably do more for the atmosphere than they’ll ever achieve at December’s IPCC meeting in Paris.

And no one needs this guy…so there’s another $150,000, at least, per year:
