DIE, GLOBAL WARMING, DIE!
By Alan Caruba
The entire credibility of major socalled environmental organizations and institutions such as the United Nations rests on whether there ever was a greater than natural warming cycle -- one that would cause harm to the world. Patiently, I pointed out that the most recent natural warming cycle had begun around 1850, following a lengthy little ice age of some five hundred years duration.
In the United States, despite all the braying about warmest years and such, the height of the warming cycle appears to have been in the 1930s, causing havoc among farmers, particularly in the Midwest. In 1998, meteorologists and climatologists began to take note of a cooling cycle. It has been gaining momentum since then. Yes, the Earth is cooling, not warming.
Despite this, the White House and the U.S. Congress — at least its Democrats — have been telling everyone that, because of global warming, the United States government must impose draconian regulations and restrictions on “greenhouse gas” emissions, by which they primarily mean carbon dioxide (CO2). The claim, utterly false, is that CO2 is “forcing” a warming that will kill us all if we don’t reduce energy and other emissions.
The utterly vile politicians advancing this — I will not name them because the very act causes nausea — had better begin to pay some attention to public opinion on the subject because the Gallup, Zogby, and Rasmussen polling organizations all are reporting that large majorities of people no longer believe their lies.
In a recent edition of the U.S. News & World Report -- one of the three weekly newsmagazines, all of whom have slavishly repeated lies about global warming -- Paul Bedard, who writes “Washington Whispers,” risked employment by reporting that Al Gore’s vast, self-enriching campaign to advance the lies about global warming is losing out to the truth.
“They have failed,” said Gallup Poll Editor, Frank Newport.
Turns out that people are more concerned about the economy. And well they should be, given the insanity being perpetrated by the White House and Congress. If there is a God in Heaven, there has to be a huge backlash in the 2010 midterm elections.
As Newport points out, “some 41% believe global warming claims are exaggerated,” adding “that’s the highest we’ve seen.” Zogby and Rasmussen report comparable results, give or take some percentage points.
Zogby asked people what they thought of the “cap-and-trade” legislation that would regulate CO2 emissions and got the following results: Support: 30%; Oppose: 57%; Not sure: 13%.
In late April, 2009, Rasmussen reported:
The “Political Class” is the enemy. They are the scoundrels that stand to line their pockets by investing in companies that will benefit from “cap-and-trade” and Obama’s lies about “clean energy.” They are buying into solar and wind energy companies that are receiving billions in federal subsidies and grants. Anybody who invested in ethanol production has already lost their shirt.
The authors of the Waxman-Markey Climate Bill should make of their names the equivalent of Benedict Arnold because both are advancing legislation that would destroy the nation’s economy. The bill requires the nation to reduce its CO2 emissions by 2050 by 82% below current levels. That means a vast reduction in energy use, i.e., energy produced from coal, natural gas, and oil.
Why would these politicians advocate reducing emissions to avoid a global warming that is not happening? Why are so many in Congress wedded to this hoax? And will Americans permit them to get away with this?
Instead of doing everything possible to encourage energy companies to find and extract the energy reserves the United States requires to function and grow, the White House and Congress is doing everything in their power to restrict energy use.
Die, global warming, die! If this greatest hoax does not die, the United States will be forced to commit economic suicide.
