Even though there is now a stay of execution from officials of an energy plant in Oregon reportedly burning aborted babies from Canada to generate electricity, blame government-funded environmentalists of the day and their their main ‘Panderer in chief’ President Barack Obama for a coming trend that allows burning babies for electricity.
Following a LifeNews story below that is going viral, the Marion County Board of Commissioners issued the following statement:
“Today the Marion County Board of Commissioners learned that the Covanta Waste-to-Energy Facility located in Marion County may be accepting medical waste containing human tissue from outside sources. In response to an April 21 article in The B.C Catholic, the board took immediate action to temporarily halt the acceptance of boxed medical waste at the facility. “(LifesiteNews.com, April 24, 2014).
And Oregon, British Columbia its provider, along with the United Kingdom are only the three places as revealed in the space of one month are the only ones being written about.
The never-ending push by radical environmentalists to bankrupt the fossil fuel industry has already led to the burning of children for fuel in two countries. Environmentalists are more worried about “wolf’s blood” than babies’ blood and Obama is leading the pack.
The lib-left, who have a track record for trying to justify everything, call the product for this increasing new energy trend “biomedical waste”, but biomedical waste is just a deceitful term for fuel provided from aborted babies.
“The British Columbia Health Ministry has admitted that the remains of babies destroyed by abortion in B.C. facilities are ending up in a waste-to-power facility in the United States, providing electricity for residents of Oregon. (LifeSiteNews.com)
“The province’s Health Ministry said in an email to the B.C. Catholic that “biomedical waste” shipped to the U.S. to be incinerated includes “human tissue, such as surgically removed cancerous tissue, amputated limbs, and fetal tissue.”
“The ministry understands that some is transferred to Oregon. There it is incinerated in a waste-to-energy plant,” the email stated.
“The ministry said that contractors handling the province’s “biomedical waste” follow “health and safety protocols, as well as federal, provincial, and local regulations.”
“Kristan Mitchell, executive director of the Oregon Refuse and Recycling Association, told the B.C. Catholic that the “biomedical waste” likely ends up at the Covanta Marion waste-to-energy facility in Oregon since it is the only facility that uses waste to power the grid. The facility confirmed that it still receives and incinerates B.C. medical waste.
“The power facility, located in Brookes just off the I-5, burns waste in two massive boilers at a temperature of about 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat transfers into water tubes, which creates steam to drive turbines. The turbines generate electricity.
“A 2007 article about the Marion waste-to-energy facility that appeared in the Willamette Live — ironically titled “Burn, Baby, Burn” — stated that at the time the incinerator burned about 800 tons (1,764,000 pounds) of medical waste per year.
“Medical waste is brought to the facility in sealed boxes and is carried to the furnace on a conveyor belt which layers it with the rest of the solid waste being processed,” the article states.
(As if babies’ bodies and parts being delivered in sealed boxes before being shunted along to the raging furnace on a conveyor belt that “layers” them with the rest of the solid waste being processed, makes it any more ethical. )
“Locals at the time protested the “importation and burning of medical waste,” expressing concern about breathing “toxic emissions.” (LifeSite.com)
At least the locals didn’t cry about the “blood of wolves” like the environmentalists did.
“The news comes one month after the remains of more than 15,000 aborted babies were found to have been incinerated, along with other “medical waste,” to heat and generate power for British hospitals. “
In short, Obama’s war on fossil fuels and his speech promises for the provision of new energy sources has led to the “Burn, Baby, Burn” nightmare of today.
The Frankenstein Fossil Fuel of the moment is Canada’s Keystone XL Pipeline.
“Keystone has become a political issue and the announcement by the Obama State Department that is giving agencies “additional time” to approve its construction due to ongoing litigation before the Nebraska Supreme Court that could affect its route brought forth protests from red-state Democrats in Congress who even threatened to find ways to go around the President to get the project approved. Eleven Democratic senators have written to the President to urge him to make a final decision by the end of May. Some of them will be up for reelection in the November midterm elections.
“Even Congress, though, seems incapable of over-ruling or overcoming Obama’s war on the provision of energy sources. In early April, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) released new data showing that federal onshore oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits are at the lowest levels in more than a decade. “Leases to companies exploring the potential of oil and natural gas reserves were down in 2013 from 1.8 million acres the year before to 1.2 million, the smallest area since records began to be maintained in 1988!

Low information voters have yet to catch on that their hero Obama is almost as callous towards the third world poor as he is toward the unborn.
While his ‘‘selfie’ at the Mandela Memorial saturated worldwide publicity on his African tour, he told the people of South Africa that they must remain poor for the good of the world. According to President Obama:
