THE LIAR-ELECT & THE DEATH OF AMERICA
By Alan Caruba
Just because President George W. Bush, whose family fortune was built on the oil industry, and now Barack Hussein Obama, President-elect, says we are addicted does not make that true, but Obama goes way beyond that statement to claim, as he did in naming his energy and environmental team, that the world is running out of oil. That, too, is a lie.
The reason America must import oil is that, starting with President James Earl "Jimmy" Carter and in league with the U.S. Congress, access to our own billions of barrels of oil have been forbidden by our lawmakers. We have the oil. Our oil industry is not allowed to explore for it or extract it.
Similarly, to suggest that, somehow, a nation that depends on its own abundant resources of coal for half of all the electricity generated should abandon that source of power in favor of solar or wind borders on either madness or deliberate duplicity or both.
In all of the world, solar and wind accounts, as it does in the U.S.A., for barely one percent of all the electricity generated. Together, solar and wind energy represents the single most inefficient, unpredictable, and unaffordable “energy alternative” that exists today. Solar and wind rank with ethanol as yet another bogus solution to “sustainability.”
As President-Elect Obama introduced his energy and environmental team, all I saw was a lethal combination of ideologues and academics, all dedicated to a program of national suicide based on decades of lies about the actual science of climate change and energy use.
The notion that the United States should sign onto and accept the limitations on energy use incorporated in the Kyoto Protocol is yet another lie. On July 25, 1997, the U.S. Senate passed a unanimous resolution refusing to accept the treaty, and even the Clinton-Gore team, when in office, never offered it to the Senate for consideration.
But the Obama administration will send the Kyoto Protocol to the Senate, which, currently dominated by environmentalist loonies such as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the utterly deluded Senator John McCain and others, will ratify the treaty.
The United Nations Kyoto Protocol is based on the global warming hoax. The fate of the United States will be tied to something that is not happening!
There is no need to limit “greenhouse gas emissions” because carbon dioxide plays virtually no role whatever in climate change. Fully 98% of CO2 is absorbed by the Earth.
The cost of our use of every form of energy will rise, based on climate claims that are lies. A nation that is already wounded by the collapse of our financial system will be pushed further into the grave by such a measure. And Obama must surely know this.
That the President-Elect could stand before Americans and claim that we are seeing increased famines, face rising oceans, and fiercer storms -- and not be challenged -- is obscene.
And he will not be challenged by what has formerly been the bulwark of our constitutional democratic republic, the nation’s press. It is the nation’s press that has spread the lies of the environmentalist movement since the days of Rachel Carson’s screed against the use of any and all chemicals.
Those who witnessed the introduction of the Obama energy and environmental team witnessed the beginning of the most aggressive attack on the nation’s coal industry, oil and natural gas industry, and nuclear industry. When you control energy use, you control every other aspect of life in the nation.
As the oppression gains, and as restriction upon restriction piles up, there will be fewer trucks on the nation’s highways to deliver goods. It has already begun in California, with literally insane restrictions on trucks using diesel. As goods become difficult to deliver, the nation’s economy will suffer further.
Life in America is going to become very grim.
The nation’s financial troubles will begin to pale as the U.S. central government enacts more and more restrictions, even as the government presently demands authority to decide what kind of cars Detroit auto manufacturers must make to receive an ill-conceived bailout. New industries and those seeking to expand will encounter obstacles. Already, multinational industries such as Foster-Wheeler, Tyco and Transocean International, formerly with headquarters in America, have left. Others will follow.
That is the “change” the Liar-Elect will bring. It is the slow death of the most powerful nation, economically and militarily, on Earth -- and only our enemies will cheer on the death of America.
