Noting this this was the first time both countries have reached an agreement on a world issue, the Chinese edition of the Global Times praised the existence of a China-U.S. joint leadership but the papers subtly hints that China will not make any dramatic cuts despite pressure by the U.S. and Europe adding:
“Its is the basic right of the people to pursue a moderately comfortable life and improve their living standards. We need to balance many factors and move on step by step.”
Echoing similar views, a commentary in the China regime state run Beijing Times welcomes the shared responsibility of tackling emissions but also reminds readers of the ‘differences’ that still exist between the two countries adding:
The U.S. and other industrialized countries need to shoulder more responsibility–and that “It is unfair to highlight (China’s) emission level of recent years…It is also unfair that developing countries have to sacrifice their development to deal with climate change.”
“While the climate agreement has been widely praised in the U.S. as a significant breakthrough,” writes China Digital Times “Chinese media response has been relatively muted.”
(Daily Signal) The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has just released its proposed new standard on ground level ozone which allegedly is a component of smog–every 5 yrs, the EPA is required by law to review and if appropriate release these standards.
In 2008 the EPA issued an ozone standard of 75 parts per billion (ppb) the new standard proposed by the EPA would decrease that level to 65 to 70 ppb though the EPA is considering an even lower standard of 60 ppb.
The National Association of Manufacturers has said a 60 ppb would be the costliest regulation in U.S. history according to a new study conducted by NERA Economic Consultants which reveals that the new EPA ozone regulation from the Obama Administration may cost $270 Billion annually and place millions of more good paying American jobs at risk.
On the 13 November, 2013 I wrote here thanks to Obama’s EPA and California’s disastrous environmental regulations which resulted in the closure of San Onofre Nuclear Power Plant and the loss of nearly 1,000 jobs, air pollution actually increased by as much as 35% together with wholesale electrical prices.
The Columbus Dispatch reported in June, 2011 that because of Obama’s proposed EPA clean air rules they would be scuttling 11 coal burning power plants, costing 600 jobs and consumers would face an increase in electricity costs ranging from 10 to 15% over the subsequent 5 years.
In another example of Obama’s EPA over-regulation in July 2010 the EPA announced that it would be cracking down on farm dust.
(KQED) Unlike George Washington that ‘could never tell a lie’ can Obama actually ever tell the truth?
On Thursday night, President Obama said “If you’ve been in America for more than five years…if you register, pass a criminal background check and are willing to pay your fair share of taxes, you’ll be able to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation–This deal does not apply to anyone that has come to this country recently…It does not grant citizenship or the the right to stay here permanently or offer the same benefits that citizens receive only Congress can do that.”
Its another big, huge Obama lie–California’s undocumented/illegal aliens who are eligible for Obama’s
deferred deportation executive amnesty are expected to be eligible for Medi-Cal (the federal/state health insurance program for the poor) as long as they meet income guidelines says Gabrielle Lessard, a health policy attorney with the Los Angeles office of the Natl Immigration Law Center.
“They’ll be in the same situation as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”(DACA) Obama’s 2012 policy for undocumented immigrants who had come to the United States as children.
While most states do not extend Medicaid (Medi-Cal) benefits to DACA immigrants, California does.
What pay tell is Obama’s Executive Amnesty going to cost the taxpayers?

“At a time when higher education has never been more important or more expensive, too many students are facing a choice that they should never have to make: Either they say no to college and pay the price for not getting a degree–and that’s a price that lasts a lifetime–or you do what it takes to go to college but then you run the risk that you won’t be able to pay it off because you’ve got so much debt.”
“Students will (learn) to identify and critically analyze one significant way in which culture and location in Great Britain shaped the Harry Potter series–For example, these might include how systems of social stratification such as economic class or ancestry in Great Britain are represented in the books and films or how J.K. Rowling utilizes prominent landmarks and historic sites in Great Britain to create a cultural setting for the novels.”
So how pray tell does experiencing the ‘Magical World of Harry Potter’ help students academically to prepare themselves for the real world, being able to find a job after graduating and why are the taxpayers having to fund it?
