The now embarrassing subject of global warming

The now embarrassing subject of global warming
Al Ritter

There is one piece of major legislation in Congress right now dealing with global warming. Please understand that in its present form the legislation has NOTHING to do with lowering the gases that are attributed to “man- made” global warming.

Cap and Trade Bill
The Bill H.R. 2454 as introduced as a bill to “To create clean energy jobs, achieve energy independence, reduce global warming pollution and transition to a clean energy economy,” otherwise known as the Cap and Trade Bill, or the Waxman/ Markey bill. Written by a man who admits he didn’t read it leaving the details to “the scientists who know, aka IPCC.”
To give you an idea of the popularity of this bill it was authored and introduced by Rep. Henry Waxman, and cosponsored by only one Rep Edward Markey. The bill rambles on many pages, and only refers to pollution reduction when it is followed by the fines, punishments, or taxes. The main intent of this bill is to raise tax money based on an unobtainable pollution reduction percentage that has never been obtained by ANY country at any point in time, thus insuring the taxable base.

History of Global Warming Scare
If the original claim of “global warming” has not happened, then the basic premise that global warming is directly tied to CO2 production (as claimed by Al Gore) is devoid of scientific basis. Al Gore’s film "An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore gives 9 irrefutable lies about global warming. Unfortunately this never stopped him from pushing his lies. The Nobel Peace Prize winner, whom has no degree in anything science related, is the self appointed head of the global warming scare mongers.

The IPCC and their international credibility

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is the name given to a research, study, and reporting body on climate change that reports yearly to the United Nations. Their title alone decries their purpose “Intergovernmental” is the very first word, not the word scientists, climatologist, nothing that depicts the scientific research. “Intergovernmental” means many governments that have a political agenda. The smaller countries in the UN are all for the Kyoto Protocol which is to expire in 2012, to be replaced by the newly touted Copenhagen Agreement, which will in effect “punish” larger, wealthier countries for their sins of the past. Strangely absent from these talks will be two of the largest polluting countries in the world China, and India, claiming wide spread poverty of emerging nations.

The credibility of the IPCC
Recently the break in of The University of East Anglia, Climate Research Unit has exposed the very individuals (scientists) that report directly to the IPCC, the supposedly non-biased group that reports directly to the UN. Some reports claim that the right wing conspiracy is cherry picking sentences from emails and exposing them as fraud. The emails are exposed for all to see in their entirety and in sequential order to see how they relate to each other. Even Dr. Michael Mann, who was credited for the “hockey stick theory” in Gore’s movie, which was later discredited by many scientists because of his deliberate elimination of the mini cooling era (1850’s) in his data, has been exposed in these emails. The progression shows the intentional conspiracy to alter real data to make it appear as though the temperature was rising when in fact it was decreasing. Cooking the books on the IPCC’s data is nothing new, but until now hasn’t gotten much coverage in the left leaning media, but Dr. Roger Pielke, a highly regarded, peer reviewed, climatologist, reported on it quite some time ago. The dismay of real scientists was largely known by the powers to be as only certain data that didn’t agree with the political agenda was rejected in the final reports to the UN.

The one responsible for exposing the fraud
In much the same way the “prostitution” videos exposed the corruption of ACORN, the global warming deniers have a new hero, David Holland, who describes himself as a David taking on the Goliath that is the prevailing scientific consensus, is seeking prosecutions against some of Britain's most eminent academics for allegedly holding back information in breach of disclosure laws. Mr. Holland, of Northampton, complained to the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) last week after the leaked emails included several Freedom of Information requests he had submitted to the CRU, and scientists' private responses to them. Within hours, a senior complaints officer in the ICO wrote back by email: "I have started to examine the issues that you have raised in your letter and I am currently liaising with colleagues in our Enforcement and Data Protection teams as to what steps to take next."

Mr. Holland, who graduated with an external degree in electrical engineering from London University in 1966 before going on to run his own businesses, told The Sunday Telegraph: "It's like David versus Goliath. Thanks to these leaked emails a lot of little people can begin to make some impact on this monolithic entity that is the climate change lobby." He added: "These guys called climate scientists have not done any more physics or chemistry than I did. A lifetime in engineering gives you a very good antenna. It also cures people of any self belief they cannot be wrong. You clear up a lot of messes during a lifetime in engineering. I could be wrong on global warming – I know that – but the guys on the other side don't believe they can ever be wrong."

What this means for the Copenhagen Agreement
Next month President Barack Obama will be in a very embarrassing position, as will many world leaders, trying to defend the global warming position after the exposure of the hacked emails from the CRU. Global warming still ranks among the lowest of concerns of the American people, but the expenditure of American taxpayer on the Copenhagen Agreement will be immense. My own personal prediction is that Obama will go to Copenhagen, because his Narcissistic Personality Disorder will demand he do so, and present his support as if nothing has happened recently, once again embarrassing his citizens. If given the opportunity Obama WILL sign the Agreement to save face even though his approval rating is rapidly disappearing. Fortunately for us the senate has to ratify an agreement of this magnitude, and the chance of that happening is slim to none, which could lead to a backdoor underhanded approach referred to as a Congressional executive agreement, where the international treaty can be interpreted as a normal law and thusly be signed right into law by the President. They have their own Cap and Trade bill to try and pass, and giving money away to foreign countries is not in their best interests (re-election.)

How can a President of a country build policy based on lies?

this whole scenario makes me sick, and the whole time the perpitrators try to rationalize and minimize it!
