This theory of global warming is a huge lie, without any basis in real science. Christie Whitman, Director of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), surely knows that President Bush does not agree with this theory and its implications for American national public policy regarding environmental issues. President Bush has vigorously and publicly rejected the global warming theory and any possibility of United States participation in the United Nations Kyoto Treaty on Climate Control.
It is time to fire EPA's Christie Whitman for failing to support the Bush administration's policies and for putting the nation in the position of having endorsed the view that human activity is causing global warming. That's what the EPA's Climate Action Report 2002 does, and it's on record with the United Nations.
Most likely, this EPA end-run was orchestrated by the many Green Clintonistas who joined the agency during the years Bill Clinton tried to foist every lame environmental fraud on this nation. The socalled scientists who work for the EPA surely know the report's assertion that "Greenhouse gases are accumulating in the earth's atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing global mean surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise" is pure and unadulterated malarkey.
This, of course, has never stopped the EPA from lying like a rug on a whole range of environmental issues. This villainous agency is responsible for easily one third of all the federal laws and regulations on the books today and it has taken the agency only from 1970 to rack up this dubious achievement of legislative and regulatory overkill. The President needs to send a message by firing the former Governor of New Jersey, whose appointment as EPA Director allowed her to flee the State of New Jersey in mid-term, leaving the State mired in debt.
On the day following the news of the latest pusillanimous, backdoor attempt to put the U.S.A. in the global warming camp, the White House hastily announced that President Bush considered the report to be the product of governmental "bureaucracy," was skeptical of the report's conclusions, and, said Reuters, "is still opposed to an international accord to limit heat-trapping emissions." Blaming the "bureaucrats" is probably accurate. If anyone is to blame, it's Director Whitman. She is so abysmally ignorant of environmental issues and science that we might as well have a laboratory mouse running the agency.
However, nothing--I repeat, NOTHING--happens in Washington, D.C., by accident. A lot of people inside and outside of government work very hard to achieve their particular agendas. Most certainly, the Greens have demonstrated tenacity in their efforts to enslave every one with their "earth religion," i.e., their environmentalist political ideology. For that reason, the global warming issue is not closed. Now, the EPA has been caught trying to put something over on the White House.
Global warming is one of the lynchpins of the Green agenda to undermine the economy of this and other industrialized nations, and it is alive in the form of the U.N. Kyoto Treaty. The EPA had no business whatever issuing a report that confirms the greatest hoax of the last and now this new century. It is idiotic, if nor criminal, that millions of taxpayers' dollars are being allocated to further "research" (actually, ideological nonsense and political propaganda) regarding global warming.
Dr. Sallie Baliunas is one of the leading climatologists in the nation. Noting President Bush's rejection, a year ago, of the U.N. Kyoto Treaty, she recently pointed out that, "in the interim, there has been no new science to cause the shift in viewpoint" reflected in the EPA report. Dr. Baliunas would use polite, scientific terms, but I will tell you plainly the Kyoto Treaty is based on worthless computer "models" and supported by fictional "scenarios" of what might happen.
Dr. Baliunas points out that the Kyoto Treaty, "at best, would produce a 0.011 of a percentage point reduction in greenhouse gases and a negligible reduction in global temperature," according to the treaty's models that forecast the rising temperatures. You don't have to be a mathematical genius to figure out that 0.011 of a single percentage point hardly justifies billions of dollars of regulatory restrictions on energy usage by the citizens of the U.S.A.
Dr Baliunas says:
For those of you who slept through science class or are part of the generation of Americans who passed through schools determined to politically indoctrinate (rather than broadly educate) students and instill in their minds environmentalist ideology and propaganda, let me explain that it is the SUN that controls most of the earth's climate. Additional factors include the oceans, the clouds, and volcanic activity around the globe. There simply isn't any credible scientific evidence that human activity has any impact on the climate. Drive your car, heat your home, watch television, get out on the water in your boat, enjoy your motorcycle or snowmobile, mow your lawn, et cetera!
The EPA has now issued a report saying that you are personally responsible for global warming. The truth is that the earth has been warming for about 12,000 years and, if it wasn't, there would be a glacier sitting where New York City can be found. The long, natural warming cycle accounts for the rise of human civilization. A bit more warming would provide longer growing seasons for food crops and forests. The truth is the earth has not warmed dramatically for the past half century and, prior to that, experienced a perfectly normal fluctuation of about one degree Fahrenheit between 1850 and 1950. That's what the earth does and what it has been doing for 5.4 billion years.
