While Barack Obama still has to meet  this year with environmental groups like 350.org, already he had several meetings with energy industry  leaders of the country. Last month,while thousands of environmentalists rallied outside the White House to protest against the Keystone XL oil pipeline,  Obama was busy playing golf with oil and gas bosses  Milton Carrol and Jim Crane of Western Gas Holdings in Texas. Few weeks later to the disappointment of 350.org members, the State Department released a Keystone draf impact study signifying a possible approval of the project.

Then last week, Obama met with 14 oil and natural gas energy CEOs and leaders from all over the country. The one hour meeting was attended by Anadarko, Southwest Gas, former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter ( advocate of energy economy ), Fedex ( which planning to switch to natural gas ) and others. The talk was centered on impact of natural gas on creating jobs and lowering manufaturing costs. The natural gas boom in the country is making it the inevitable energy source in the near future.

Also, earlier this year Obama White House officials met with lobbysists from Exxon Mobil, American Petroleum Institute, Chesapeake Energy, Exterran and the Interstate Natural Gas Asoociation of America. However, Obama’s White House aides have also met with environmental groups and his Organizing for Action lobby machine has top donors pushing for liberal environmental issues.

WORST BLIZZARDS IN HISTORY

The year 1888 had the worst, and weirdest, record of blizzard history. A blizzard dubbed as “The Great White Hurricane” devastated the northeast  with 50 feet of snow, 45 miles per hour wind, and death of 400 people. Another 1888 blizzard pounded the midwest this time but unexpectedly because it was a warm day and people were unprepared for it.  The teachers decided to send the children walking home from school and many died of hypothermia as they walked home during the developing blizzard.  The total death was 230, mostly children, that’s why it’s called “The Children’s Blizzard.

In 1717, a blizzard dropped 25 feet of snow, it collapsed houses trapping people inside. The blizzard of 1977 gave 30 feet of snow, buried two-storey houses and one man got injured riding a snowmobile on top of chimney. Suburbs were buried as shown by some pictures taken after the blizzard.  The Quebec Ice Storm of 1998 produced a freezing rain more than 100 mm, the largest in history. The 1993 Perfect Storm, also called the Storm of the Century, was a combination of blizzard, heavy rain, wind and tornadoes. It was so huge sattelite images showed the storm stretching from Central America up to Canada, with US northeast and Cuba as focus.
