States limit purchase of high end computers

 

 

This should clip the wings of those capitalists who need powerful computer capacity. Add regular gamers as well. States putting the brakes and limiting what kind of computer one can have. Falls under “Power Consumption Regulations.” Where did this come from? If we needed another example of a previous post The United States Descent Into Madness this is it. California has a special kind of madness considering they are suppose to be the tech capital of the world.

Looks like it’s back to this:

NEC Multispeed EL Computer“NEC Multispeed EL Computer” by lewong2000 is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0

Approximately 59 million Americans spanning five states can’t buy Dell’s high-end Alienware brand desktop PCs “due to power consumption regulations.”

When one goes to the Dell Alienware online configurator to buy an Aurora R12 gaming desktop, a special notice appears which reads:

This product cannot be shipped to the states of California, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Vermont or Washington due to power consumption regulations adopted by those states. Any orders placed that are bound for those states will be canceled.

Among other state policies, the prohibition puts Dell in compliance with California’s Energy Commission regulations which took effect on July 1. Under the new guidelines, annual energy consumption cannot consume more than 75 kWh/year, and cannot exceed an “expandability score” (ES) of 690, which includes idle power consumption.

 

California madness:

 

Computing Savings in California
Requirements for Desktop Computers, Thin Clients, MobileGaming Systems, Portable All-in-Ones and Notebook Computers
 
On July 1, 2021, desktop computers, thin clients and mobile gaming systems will be required to comply with the Tier-II performance, testing, marking and certification requirements listed inSections 16011608 ofCalifornia’s Appliance EfficiencyRegulations (Title 20). Portable all-in-ones and notebook computers must continue to meet the Tier 1 requirements that became effective on January 1, 2019.On December 9, 2021, computers with high-speed networking capability, multi-screen notebooks, notebooks with cyclical behavior, and monitors with high refresh rates will also be required to meet the performance, testing, marking and certification requirements listed inSections 1601(v) –1608 of Title 20.The regulations for these computer types are in addition to those that went into effect on January 1, 2018 for small-scale servers, high expandability computers, mobile workstations and workstations.
 Why?
 
According to the 2016 Energy Commission Staff Report, computers and monitors account for approximately 3% of residential and 7% of commercial energy use, qualifying them as large electricity consumers. Much of the time, these products are turned on and consuming electricity but are not actively being used. The Energy Commission recognizes four different non-active operational modes: short-idle, long-idle, sleep and off-modes.Some computers consume 50 watts of electricity in these idle modes.The Title 20 standards are cost-effective, technically feasible and limit the amount of electricity computers and monitors are allowed to consume when not in active mode. The standards are designed to reduce energy consumption in active mode without interfering with performance. The standards set targets for energy consumed in the four non-active modes based on a computer’s “expandibility score” (ES). The ES considers the number and type of interfaces offered. There are also allowances for additional energy use if the computer offers additional functionality, including:• Add-in Cards• Additional Hard Disks• Graphics Cards• High Bandwidth System Memory• High-speed Ethernet Capability• Integrated Display• Refresh Rates Above 300 Hz (monitors)• System Memory• Video Surveillance Cards• Wired Ethernet or Fiber CardsThe base total energy consumption targets are determined by a product’s ES, which is contingent on the type of interfaces present in the system as sold or offered for sale.

Biden sick pedophile behavior – couldn’t help himself this past week.

Joe Biden has zero grip on reality and our enemies are laughing hysterically at us right now. Biden took a moment in his speech yesterday to say white supremacy is more dangerous than foreign terrorism.  Worse, he approached three young girls this past week with the same sexual overtones that he has exhibited in the past. The media remains complicit in covering his rapid decline other than a few bloggers. 

Plenty of creepy online videos emerged of Biden manhandling young children in the past. In these videos, Biden was shown grabbing young children who were attending the induction ceremonies of incoming members of Congress or the Obama administration. Plenty of women have complained as well and we have all seen the clips.

These images would have ended the presidential aspirations of any Republican candidate, but Biden persevered after pledging to improve his behavior. At the time, Biden claimed that he would “be more mindful and respectful of people’s personal space.”

CMV: Joe Biden is a sexist, pedophile, and/or sexual predator. :  changemyview

PolitiFact | 10 most popular social media fact-checks of 2020

The holiday weekend proves he is not capable of inhibiting his behavior. First his bizarre remark regarding White Supremacy.

Can Joe Biden remind me of the last time a ‘white supremacist’ hijacked an American plane and killed 3,000 people with it?

And who burned down all the cities last year and is still doing so? Wasn’t white boys.

Here we go with yesterday’s ice cream lure of the day. Does he lure them into the WH to see his puppy? Right, the dog does bite.

This is what we have to look forward to at the end of the trail with Biden. Just think, all of this in one week. What is the world is she talking about?

That is the best of the swamp today.

Climate Official : ‘We have to break your will’ – regular people who heat homes

 

Every now and then they say really what they plan and the thoughts they have for our future. Break our will? How about our bank account and destroy our standard of living. One can only wonder where the outrage is over the XL Keystone pipeline. Here tis:

A Massachusetts climate official said people who heat their homes and fuel their cars will need to have their “will” broken in order to combat emissions and climate change.

“I know one thing that we found in our analysis is that 60% of our emissions come from … residential heating and passenger vehicles,” said David Ismay, Massachusetts, undersecretary for climate change, during a virtual meeting with the Vermont Climate Council. “Let me say that again: 60% of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person on your street, the senior on fixed-income. Right now, there is no bad guy left, at least in Massachusetts, to point the finger at and turn the screws on and now break their will, so they stop emitting. That’s you. We have to break your will.”

Ismay reasoned that climate agencies were running out of options.

……..

“It’s frightening to think an official so high up in the Baker administration is bragging to an out-of-state group about the economic pain he wants to inflict on the very people who he’s supposed to work for,” Paul Craney, a spokesman MFA, told Commonwealth Magazine. “Remarks like this have no place in state government. Ismay should be dismissed from his position in state government, as he’s clearly demonstrated he does not have the best interests of the residents of Massachusetts at heart.

Biden Harris pincher move against Manchin not a big success

If we are concerned about the GOP not pulling their oars together, one can only wonder what was in the thinking of the Biden/Harris presidential pair. It doesn’t sound like they are keeping in mind they need each and every one of the Dems to keep on rolling over the GOP setting aside reconciliation. Schumer no doubt must be chaffing that Manchin doesn’t support getting rid of the filibuster  but it’s not a popular concept to go behind a Senator’s back and undermine him. So the squeeze was to put the Governor and Biden against Manchin. Not enough? Then go over Arizona way an aggravate things there.

CHARLESTON/HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) – After airing Thursday evening, WSAZ’s exclusive interview with Vice President Kamala Harris drew national attention.

Friday morning, the White House answered questions about the vice president’s appearance on two stations — one in Arizona, the other on WSAZ.

The interview even took U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., by surprise. Friday morning, Manchin visited one of West Virginia’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics. His visit comes just one day after the vice president spoke with WSAZ’s Amanda Barren about the proposed “American Rescue Plan” (ARP).

“I saw [the interview], I couldn’t believe it. No one called me [about it],” Manchin said. “We’re going to try to find a bipartisan pathway forward, but we need to work together. That’s not a way of working together.”

“We want to make the case to the American people across the country (…) This is a way to do just that,” Psaki said.

Psaki was then asked by a reporter why Arizona and West Virginia were chosen specifically.

“I think [the vice president will] do a number of additional regional calls and regional interviews, as will members of the team,” Psaki responded.

“We met [Pres. Biden’s] economic team and they put out what they wanted. We said, ‘Just show us the figures.’ Because people need to know. We want to help everybody that needs help,” Manchin said. “But if a person is making $250,000 or $300,000, I don’t think they’re in much as need as a person making $40,000 or $50,000. We’re going to target it.”

Thursday, the vice president told WSAZ’s Amanda Barren she and President Joe Biden ran as Democrats, but “we are Americans and we will lead as Americans.” Vice President Harris added, “The reason I am here in West Virginia talking with you is because everybody matters whether you voted for us or not.”

Now back to this West Virginia governor business. This is a born again Democrat/Republican who rode the coattails of Trump and became a Republican again.  Trump won W.VA by 39 points.

James Conley Justice II (born April 27, 1951) is an American businessman and politician who has been serving as the 36th governor of West Virginia since 2017. With a net worth of around $1.9 billion, he is the wealthiest person in West Virginia.

Although Justice was a registered Republican before running for governor, he ran as a Democrat and defeated the Republican nominee, Bill Cole. Less than seven months after taking office, Justice switched back to the Republican Party after announcing his plans at a rally with U.S. president Donald Trump in the state.

Whichever way the wind blows apparently.

Whoopi apparently thinks it was just fine. Actually a couple of them figured it out how it works.  Manchin votes with the GOP about 50 percent of the time.

Kamala Harris once again demonstrating her lack of familiarity with the energy sector, yet, for some reason, she intends to regulate it.

A stunning success for the swamp.

Watch out for Biden’s next land grab via the Monuments Act

 

In the waning days of the Obama administration, Obama  finished off his ravaging the land taking control  of more land to make sure we would be energy dependent and finish off tens of thousands of good paying jobs. I listened closely to Biden’s first day of E.O.’s and a close ear would have heard him add  he wanted to “expand the Monuments land.”

Let us be clear what that is suppose to be:

What did the National Monuments Act do?
In 1906, Congress passed the General Antiquities Act. The Act, drafted by an archaeologist, gave the President the power to set aside objects and structures of historic and scientific interest as national monuments. 54 U.S.C. 320301.

No surprise, it’s been abused to grab tons of federal land. Once land is set aside and cannot be reversed.

So we ain’t see nothing yet… Let’s take a look at just how devastating has been so far.

Flashback: Obama eyes taking control of the Arctic, adding to Monuments Act

We learn that Obama has eyes on the Arctic. Of course, to remove any opportunity for oil and gas exploration and adding to the larder of government controlled land and water. In the last year alone added 750,000 acres. All under the Monuments Act. The result? No turning back. Of course he will do this and much more. Here tis;

In September President Obama created the first marine national monument in the Atlantic Ocean, roping off around 5,000 square miles in waters near the coast of Cape Cod. The month before, he designated over 440,000 square miles in the Pacific off the coast of Hawaii.

Now, as the president begins his lame duck stint, environmental groups are pressuring him to turn his focus to Arctic waters, with the goal of permanently banning oil and gas development in the region. And that prospect has become even more likely following last week’s election result and the advent of a Trump Administration, which has pledged to provide industry with greater access.

President Obama‘s use of the 1906 Antiquities Act is already unmatched. In an effort to secure his environmental legacy, his administration has created or enlarged 26 national monuments since 2011, including 14 in just the past year and a half, collectively totaling more than 750,000 square miles.

Any national monument designation is effectively final. That means portions of America’s Arctic Ocean bestowed with monument status would be removed from oil and gas development forever, even if a later administration, with the benefit of hindsight, wanted to reverse the order.

If environmental groups are successful in banning offshore oil and gas development, it will have dire and lasting consequences. More at Washington Examiner

Obama gobbles up 400,000 square miles for the government 

President Obama, with the stroke of a pen, created the world’s largest ocean reserve on Friday off Hawaii, 400,000 square miles, days after designating a massive federal monument in Maine – moves that have angered local lawmakers who accuse the president of disregarding the impact on residents.

I just got done posting on August 22, 2016 Obama and the Greenies seeking massive land grab in Utah

Now more:

Try this one out:

Obama Designates National Monument in Maine, to Dismay of Some New York Times – 3 days ago

Mr. Obama designated more than 87,500 acres of rugged terrain

It became by far the largest region of federal parkland in Maine, surpassing the 48,900-acre Acadia National Park on the coast

Hawaii

Obama used a presidential proclamation to expand the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument off the coast of Hawaii by over 400,000 square miles. The preserve now stretches 582,578 square miles, the world’s largest marine protected area. .

The government already owns two-thirds of the 13 Western states. This doesn’t include State and Local government ownership.

Given the nation’s possible dependence on foreign sources of energy, it seems like it’d be a pretty bad move for the president to use his executive power to tie up more lands via the Antiquities Act–a measure generally intended to preserve historic landmarks.  Percent of Federal Land own in Western States:

  1. Nevada           84.5%
  2. Alaska            69.1%

Supreme court rules Baltimore climate change lawsuit against energy companies can proceed

 

The Robert’s Supreme court deals another blow. This time to the energy industry. The Supremes will allow a State court to proceed with an energy law suit at the same time the case resides in the fourth circuit federal appeals court for a ruling on jurisdiction.  The court did not disclose a vote count or reasons for rejecting the request for a stay. Just to show how bizarre this is:

Former Mayor Catherine Pugh decided to move ahead with the case, (2018) despite decisions against similar lawsuits in California and New York only days before Baltimore’s filing. In California, District Judge William Alsup determined in May 2018 that cases brought by the cities of San Francisco and Oakland against energy companies belonged in the federal judiciary, and strongly questioned key parts of the case, including the allegation that energy companies had created a “public nuisance” against an entire community. Rebuking the plaintiffs, he stated, “If we didn’t have fossil fuels, would have lost [World War II] and every other war. Planes wouldn’t fly. Trains wouldn’t run. And we’d be back in the Stone Age.”

But not the first of this:

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld a Virginia law that bans mining at the nation’s largest known uranium deposit.

Bloomberg

Sure, why not stop our Uranium production after Hillary was kind enough to give 20 percent of our deposits to the Russians.

The Supreme Court allowed the city of Baltimore to proceed with its climate change lawsuit against two dozen fossil fuel companies Tuesday, after the corporate defendants asked the justices to put the dispute on hold.

The oil and natural gas companies — among them BP, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, and Royal Dutch Shell — are fighting to move Baltimore’s lawsuit out of a Maryland state court into a federal court. They wanted the justices to stop state court proceedings while they fight to remove the dispute to a federal forum.

The lawsuit alleges that the fossil fuel companies have engaged in a “coordinated, multi-front effort” to conceal the harm of greenhouse gas emissions that attend the use of their products. The plaintiffs claim the energy industry has been investigating atmospheric carbon accumulation since at least 1958, and has long been aware of its environmental consequences.

After Baltimore lawyers filed their complaint in state court, the corporate defendants tried to move the case to federal court. U.S. District Judge Ellen Hollander rejected that request. The companies are now fighting that decision in the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which has yet to produce a decision.

The defendants went to the Supreme Court because state proceedings are slated to continue while the 4th Circuit considers their bid to move the dispute into the federal system.

Baltimore suit of 26 energy companies for injuries sustained in climate change, heatwaves, continues

In the process, of course, we do untold damage to important industries that we need or want for our country’s wheels to go round. In this case in Baltimore against energy companies.

Another example of this type of action is suing various drug manufacturers for billions of dollars regarding Opioids.  Continuing this course will either bankrupt the companies, or damage them to the extent of limiting the research funds available for new discoveries.

The opioid manufacturers included in the lawsuit are Purdue Pharma, Cephalon, Inc. and Janssen Pharmaceuticals, while the opioid distributors are McKesson Corp., Cardinal Health, Inc. and AmerisourceBergen Drug Corp. More than 1,800 lawsuits have been filed against opioid manufacturers, distributors and pharmacies.

Bloomberg – AG Ellison Minnesota corruption scandal

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg and other activist donors are paying for their own attorneys to work inside state attorney general offices and governor’s offices.They are there to push climate change litigation.

How could this possibly be legal? Last month I reported on New York.

NY AG Office Asks for Ethic Opinion after revealed ‘hired’ Bloomberg operatives

“We know NY OAG only sought an ethics opinion over 13 months after promising Bloomberg’s group there were no ethics issues, and 8 months after having already brought them on board,”

How does one “hire” someone if that “someone” is being paid for by someone else? How about “plant” someone inside an office? What is even worse, that plant is inside an Attorney General’s office? That person planting is none other than former Mayor Bloomberg and this is not the first office he has done this with.

How many other AG offices are being used by outside groups to politicize their points of view and carry out their agenda?

That was the question I asked.

But of course and no surprise to my question. It would be Minnesota and AG Keith Ellison first added to the list.

A group called Energy Policy Advocates requested documents relating to this scheme from the office of Minnesota’s Attorney General, Keith Ellison. EPA’s requests were made pursuant to Minnesota’s broad Government Data Practices Act. The requests were narrowly tailored to ask for documents relating to 1) correspondence between the AG’s office and a plaintiffs’ law firm, and 2) correspondence between the AG’s Office and a specific individual in another state who was recruiting attorneys general to join Bloomberg’s scheme. The Minnesota Attorney General replied that there are no such documents, or, if there are, they are privileged and will not be produced.

So EPA sued, represented by a brand new public interest law firm called the Upper Midwest Law Center

Reported by the Star Tribune. The Strib’s story, mediocre at best, is most notable because it flushes out Keith Ellison’s admission that Minnesota is indeed participating in the Bloomberg scam. Ellison didn’t have much choice: there is a Linked In page by a lawyer who wrote:

I am off on a new adventure as a Fellow with the NYU School of Law’s State Impact Center. I will be embedded with the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office as an Environmental Litigator and Special Assistant Attorney General.

So much for any claim that there are no documents linking the Minnesota Attorney General to Bloomberg’s corrupt scheme, unless this was all arranged via smoke signals.

Bloomberg’s scheme is corrupt, poses inevitable conflicts of interest, and in some states is flatly illegal.

This video by the Clear Energy Alliance presents a good summary of the scandal:

Chris Horner spent more than two years producing two reports for the Competitive Enterprise Institute exposing this scheme and CEA president Mark Mathis showcases the money trail.

Minneapolis bans new drive throughs

 

The Minneapolis City Council approved a ban for new drive-throughs on Thursday. Even better they are working on a 2040 “Comprehensive Plan.” Pharmacy, bank, fast food. You will have to park your car and walk inside. No new ones.

I can only imagine what the new plan will include. If anyone wants to know what Bernie Sanders et al have in store for us, look no further.  As I recall winter weather out there can make it a real treat to get out of your car and run in.

The council said the ban will cut down on noise and traffic, and also make sidewalks safer for pedestrians.

Lisa Bender, Minneapolis City Council president, said the changes are also part of an effort to rezone areas in the city in preparation for the upcoming Minneapolis 2040 comprehensive plan.

One of the hottest trends in the restaurant world right now is delivery — and Minneapolis just gave people one more reason to stay home and place their food orders online: The city has placed a ban on the construction of new drive-thru windows.

 And though clearly plenty of people use drive-throughs, Council Member Lisa Goodman said that the debate surrounding them tends to be one-sided. “I rarely have seen anyone other than the applicants of drive-throughs come to speak in favor of them,” the Tribune quoted her as saying.

How about those disabled who need to use drive through pharmacies? Have kids in the car? Really its about getting rid of cars and using public transportation. We shall bend to our Socialists rulers.

How much of the Solar System must we leave as a preserve?

 

The latest to worry the wacko left. Overuse of the Solar System. How soon before the kiddies in school start being driven to protest this activity?

Space Mining Could Ruin Our Solar System If We Don’t Establish Protected Places Now, Researchers Warn.

A study finds that it is in peril of overexploitation:

The study, published April 16 in the journal Acta Astronautica, makes a case for designating 85% of our solar system a protected “wilderness” akin to Earth’s national parks, leaving just one-eighth of eligible planets, moons and asteroids free to be mined or developed by human interests.

According to the study,humans could deplete the solar system of all of its water, iron and other mineable resources in a matter of centuries — potentially leaving the solar system a dried-up wasteland in as little as 500 years.

“Then, we are done,” warn the authors.

 

From Hubble

Highlights

Solar System resources are vast, but finite.
Normal exponential growth suggests 400 years before exhaustion is approached.
Prudent to adopt a “1/8 Principle” as a tripwire: “Do not exploit >1/8 of solar system”.
Rest should be left as Wilderness.
Many ethical and practical questions must then be dealt with.

“How much of the Solar System should we reserve as wilderness, off-limits to human development?” We make a general argument that, as a matter of fixed policy, development should be limited to one eighth, with the remainder set aside. We argue that adopting a “one-eighth principle” is far less restrictive, overall, than it might seem. One eighth of the iron in the asteroid belt is more than a million times greater than all of the Earth’s currently estimated iron ore reserves, and it may well suffice for centuries. A limit of some sort is necessary because of the problems associated with exponential growth.

New York has to get energy from Russia thanks to Cuomo and the eco-left

 

Once more the indication that the eco-terrorists are leaving America at the mercy of the political mercies of our enemies. Let’s see, we are banning countries from dealing with Iran and Venezuela over energy, but for America, let’s have Russia take care of us.

Last  year I reported

Russian Nat Gas has to be imported to New England but let’s get on Merkel

Trump huffs and puffs over Merkel’s arrangement for one big beautiful pipeline to run from Putin’s domain into the heart of Germany, guess who is dependent on the very same Nat gas from Putin? Massachusetts for one, and the rate the environmentalists are going, more of us to come.

An excellent example of just what has been allowed to happen that puts Americans at risk by a few nitwits. There, I said it and I cut to the chase.

Even the Boston Globe opined that “Massachusetts’ reliance on imported gas from one of the world’s most threatened places is also a severe indictment of the state’s inward-looking environmental and climate policies.”

 

Now I have a report on the situation in New York, the latest from the eco-terrorists.

For eight years, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has capitulated to the eco-left. From preventing the construction of needed pipelines to banning fracking, he has implemented an extreme environmentalist agenda.

Now, the consequences of those decisions are hitting New York residents hard.

Earlier this year, it was reported how New York is facing shortages of natural gas, even though it has plentiful shale reserves and shares a border with Pennsylvania, a state that also has shale reserves. As the Wall Street Journal noted, “The reason for the shortage is obvious: The Cuomo administration has repeatedly blocked or delayed new pipeline projects. As a Con Ed spokesman put it, there is a ‘lot of natural gas around the country, but getting it to New York has been the strain.’”

It seems New York has a partial solution – import liquefied natural gas from Russia.

That’s right, instead of permitting pipelines and fracking to get access to domestic natural gas, New York is importing energy from across the world – and from a geopolitical rival to boot.

Chuck DeVore, Vice President of the Texas Public Policy Foundation explains, “And, while Gov. Cuomo continues to obstruct new pipelines, generating political goodwill from some, his state’s policies, combined with a 99-year-old law that bans foreign vessels from shipping cargo between U.S. ports, result in the importation of liquified natural gas (LNG) from Russia and Trinidad and Tobago—rather than Pennsylvania or Texas.”
