ImageIs there an exit strategy for this energy, environment and economic predicament? - Life in a box is better than no life at all, playwright Tom Stoppard famously opined, through the personage of Rosencrantz. (Or was it Guildenstern?)

That’s lucky for us, because our energy, environmental and economic policies have certainly put us in a box - and there is no easy way out.

Congress passed a $787-billion 'stimulus' bill, and a $3-billion cash-for-clunkers program that trashed perfectly good cars, and the energy and raw materials that created them. It’s halfway toward imposing nationalized healthcare that could cost taxpayers another $2.5 trillion over its first decade.

The image shows Alfonso Bedoya who played Gold Hat say his famous line...Why can’t you be more polite and stop questioning our integrity and science? Who can forget the classic confrontation between Humphrey Bogart and Alfonso Bedoya in Treasure of the Sierra Madre. It is now being reprised in living color featuring banditos from East Anglia, Penn State, Washington and the UN.

'We are Federales', they tell us. 'You know climate police. Evidence? We ain’t got no evidence! We don’t need no evidence! We don’t have to show you any stinkin’ evidence!'

Image Cartoon Courtesy of Joel Barbee - NFP CartoonistThe data manipulation and fraud stench is too strong to be ignored any longer - As frigid Copenhagen prepares for the upcoming Climate Armageddon confab, a predictable barrage of hothouse horrors has been unleashed, to advance proposals to slash hydrocarbon use and carbon dioxide emissions, restrict agriculture and economic growth, and implement global governance and taxation.

CO2 has reached a new high (0.0385% of the atmosphere), we’re told, because of cars and 'coal-fired factories of death.' Rising seas are forcing families to 'flee their homes.' Oceans are becoming 'toxic.' Climate change is driving Philippine women into prostitution. Higher temperatures will 'increase the likelihood of civil war in Sub-Saharan Africa' and 'bring human civilization to a screeching halt., The Associated Press, BBC and other 'mainstream' media dutifully regurgitate every press release.

ImageClimate changes and their causes through the ages, as explained by Gore and modelers - Behind the persistent global warming scare is the hypothesis and assertion that increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are causing Earth to warm dangerously. The thesis is espoused most prominently by Al Gore, James Hansen, modelers and other alarmists. It is the fundamental assumption behind the computer models that consistently conjure up headline-grabbing climate change disaster scenarios.

A basic principle of geology and other sciences is that the same natural processes we observe today – erosion, plant growth, species evolution and so on – occurred in a similar manner throughout Earth’s history. Therefore, if carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are causing global warming today, they must have done so in the past, and certainly in the recent historic past.

ImageRestricting and taxing energy use to prevent speculative climate disasters will be disastrous - “Electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket” under cap-and-trade,” President Obama has admitted. “Industry will have to retrofit its operations. That will cost money, and they will pass that cost on to consumers.” Cap-and-trade, Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) eagerly observed, is “the most significant revenue-generating proposal of our time.” 

Not one congressman even read the numbingly complex 1427-page Waxman-Markey global warming bill, before the House of Representatives voted on it. A new version of the Kerry-Boxer Senate bill provides no details about how carbon allowances would be allocated under a mandatory emissions reduction program.

Former U.S. Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore signs copies of his new bookHow double standards mislead Congress with absurd proclamations of Climate Armageddon - House Global Warming Subcommittee Chairman Ed Markey (D-MA) was outraged that a renegade freelance lobbyist had sent a dozen phony letters to members of Congress, urging them to vote against cap-and-trade legislation.

Congress will not tolerate “forgery and identity theft” in attempting to influence the passage of legislation, members solemnly intoned. The letters misled Congress and imperiled its integrity and deliberative process.
