Chances dim for climate-change legislation - May. 30, 2008

Chances dim for climate-change legislation [this year]

 
 
Thank God this legislation appears to be DOA, at least for this year.  The details in this article pretty much describes the players and the agenda.  The tree huggers and the companies that stand to gain financially, like GE, are all for a new Carbon Tax, the economy and the consumer who is going to pay for all this, be damned.
 
Trying to legislate away global warming is about the most insane thing I've seen the pinheads in Congress ever attempt.  We let them screw with our clocks twice a year and it has only emboldened them to think they can legislate not just the weather, but the entire planet's temperature!  And they're basing all of this gloom and doom scenario on some highly speculative, unproven and largely discounted theories that are based on computer model they are claiming can predict the future.  Man is not changing the climate.  Sure, there are incentives that can be set to reduce air and water pollution, but those things are not the same as MAN Made Global Warming.
 
In addition, as the article mentions that even if they do implement a Carbon Tax, what do you think they're going to do with the money?  They'll be fighting over it like Banty hens over corn.  Earmarks in their states for parks, trees and who knows what else.  But none of it will affect the planet's overall temperature.  The solution?  They'll raise the tax.
 
The tree huggers and the socialists have found a niche in the armor of freedom and the free market.  And they are going to dig and dig and dig relentlessly until they either win or they are stopped.  But who is going to stop them?  Certainly not Obama. Not Clinton. Not even McCain. He's in the tank for MMGW as much as the rest of them.
 
it's going to be a long, long century...
 
THIS is what we're passing on to our children and grandchildren.

AFP: Obama camp spies endgame in Oregon

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want
and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ...
and then just expect that other countries are going
to say OK," Obama said.

"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added."

 
 
 
[No, we will tell you what you can drive, and when and how to eat, and control your thermostat for you, because we are the Federal Government. Get used to it.  You WILL change. -- Obama]
 
The problem with liberal and socialists is they are Control Freaks. They envision that everything will run smoothly, as long as you do it their way.  Nothing in their mantra speaks for individual freedom.
 
Please tell me this country is not so far gone that it will elect a nutcase Control Freak like this one.

Help Stop The New Al Gore Tax!

Al Gore is at it again.  In the 90's he was instrumental in implementing the telephone Universal Service charge (aka Gore Phone Tax), a tax on your phones to pay for the "have nots" to have free internet service in rural areas.  It's become a multibillion dollar slush fund and even though 99% of the country has access to the internet now, the tax will never go away from your phone bill. Count on it.
 
And now he's promoting a Carbon Tax.  As usual, follow the money.  He stands to enrich himself immensely if this scheme takes hold.  And it looks like it will, given what the Democrats and McCain have said about supporting the fight against so-called Man-made global warming.  Congress has already spent billions of dollars on "fighting climate change".  (who's passing out the Kool-aid in Washington?).
 
Sheesh.  We let them screw with our clocks twice a year and it has only emboldened them to think they can control the entire planet's climate!
 
Please take a look at the page below and I hope you will sign the petition. But don't stop there.  Call your Congressman and Senators and voice your opposition to this nonsense.  Not just once but often, and get your associates to do so too!  Write letters, send email, call them.  We need to bombard them with our opposition nation-wide or we're going to be forever saddled with a Carbon Tax.  Ted Nugent says, "if your Congressman doesn't know your name you're not doing your part."  I agree!
 
Man-made global warming is an unproven and highly contradicted theory.  That's all it is, a theory, based on computer models.  For the government to implement a tax on everything from breathing to driving your car and heating and cooling your house is completely unwarranted.
 
Let your voice join the choir!   
 
Please sign the petition!  http://www.grassfire.org/106/petition.asp
 
Thanks,
Larry

CO2Science: Carbon Dioxide & the Climate Crisis: Reality or Illusion?

I love this.
 
"...current CO2 levels, which are 30 percent higher than in the pre-industrial era, have greatly enhanced the growth of trees and other plants. Results from controlled studies show how a doubling of CO2 in the atmosphere, which is expected to occur over the next century, will increase crop yields by 30 to 40 percent, double the water-use efficiency of most of the earth's vegetation and possibly triple the productivity of forests. "
 
Co2 is not a pollutant, but a nutrient to life on earth.
