Cap And Trade. Global Warming. The Dumbness Of Lawmakers

Posted in politics by roving on May 23, 2009

See what happens when we keep putting the same people into office? They become dumb.  They forget what its like to live in the real world. Having a job they need to go to every day to put food on the table. They forget its the people who get the economy going. Not them. All they do is muck it up and make it worse.

Not only do they become dumb and border line insane, (Dicky Durbin, Harry Reid) they refuse to listen to reason.  No matter even scientists who once claimed man man global warming was real now say they were mistaken, or more and more of the evidence points to the earth actually cooling, or thinking they are more powerful then the earth and sun and think they can actually do something, they still refuse to open their brains and admit they are wrong.

Its like being on a runaway train. Once our lawmakers get a idea in their head they can never seem to change their minds and continue to head for disaster. I could tell the climate was changing a few years ago. Our summers were no longer as hot and our winters are back the way they were when I was small.

The house committee approved the climate change bill. (notice its no longer man made global warming? Now its “climate change) They want to limit what we breathe out. What our plants and trees need to survive!

This bill will throw 2 million people out of work yearly. It will be the largest tax increase in history. Obama knows this so they included unemployment benefits into the bill. It will be so bad, the unemployment will last for 3 yrs.  We will pay 74% more for gas to put in our cars. Our electric bills could be anywhere from 50-90% higher.

Hows that for change you can believe in?

    The most respected scientific bodies have stated unequivocally that global warming is occurring, and people are causing it by burning fossil fuels (like coal, oil and natural gas) and cutting down forests. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences, which in 2005 the White House called “the gold standard of objective scientific assessment,” issued a joint statement with 10 other National Academies of Science saying “the scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify nations taking prompt action. It is vital that all nations identify cost-effective steps that they can take now, to contribute to substantial and long-term reduction in net global greenhouse gas emissions.”
    Here, see for yourself: http://nationalacademies.org/onpi/06072005.pdf

    Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

    The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850.

    A press release from the National Academy of Sciences (you’d expect them to know their stuff, right?):
    “We urge all nations, in the line with the UNFCCC principles, to take prompt action to reduce the causes of climate change, adapt to its impacts and ensure that the issue is included in all relevant national and international strategies.”
    This statement was signed by:
    National Academy of Sciences, United States of America
    Chinese Academy of Sciences, China
    Royal Society, United Kingdom
    Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia
    Academia Brasiliera de Ciências, Brazil
    Royal Society of Canada, Canada
    Academié des Sciences, France
    Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher, Germany
    Indian National Science Academy, India
    Accademia dei Lincei, Italy
    Science Council of Japan, Japan

    The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC):
    “Even the minimum predicted shifts in climate for the 21st century are likely to be significant and disruptive.”

    American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS):
    “The scientific evidence is clear: global climate change caused by human activities is occurring now, and it is a growing threat to society [snip]The conclusions in this statement reflect the scientific consensus”

    National Research Council:
    “Greenhouse gases are accumulating in Earth’s atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise. Temperatures are, in fact, rising. ”

    Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS):
    “CMOS endorses the process of periodic climate science assessment carried out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and supports the conclusion, in its Third Assessment Report, which states that the balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate.”

    Geological Society of America:
    “The Geological Society of America (GSA) supports the scientific conclusions that Earth’s climate is changing; the climate changes are due in part to human activities; and the probable consequences of the climate changes will be significant and blind to geopolitical boundaries.”

    National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) :
    “To slow the rate of climate change, we can decrease the amount of carbon dioxide that we release into the atmosphere.”

    Read Prof. Richard Lindzen
    Read Willie Soon, PHD

    I swear, short of New York turning into an icy Narnia, Conservatives are never going to listen to the facts, sticking instead to the very very few “experts” and Sean Hannity, and the rest of those who refute the evidence.
    On this basis, you’re entirely wrong.
