Junk Science Unravels


From Investors.com:

Climate Change: The scientist who claimed that global warming threatens polar bears is under investigation. There’s a hole in Earth’s greenhouse. A cooler era lies ahead. That hiss is the hot air coming out of alarmists’ balloon.

The global warming fraud is coming apart faster than the alarmists can repackage and rebrand their fairy tale. Their elaborately constructed yarn can’t hold together much longer. There are just too many loose ends:

Anti-Business BHO Adds Burdensome Global Warming Regulations — By Executive Order


More hogwash, anti-business, global warming nonsense regulations and restrictions from BHO, by executive order, skirting Congress and the will of the people.  Government telling business how to conduct their business.  Like the government has such a great record.  Worse, BHO, who has never run any kind of business, telling Americans how to conduct their business.  The race is on!  Can America hold on 21 more months?  How much more “Hope and Change” can we stand? Fight, people, fight!

The following from an article at Judicial Watch, Inc.:

All federal agencies and private companies that deal with the U.S. government must identify their vulnerabilities to the impacts of global warming and develop a climate change adaptation plan, as per an executive order quietly signed by President Obama.

That means they must appoint a “climate change adaptation specialist,” participate in climate adaptation workshops and educate every employee throughout the year. Continue reading

Algore, The Snake Oil Salesman


Al Gore has gotten filthy rich pulling the wool over the eyes of all the Chicken Littles of the world, and he is laughing all the way to the bank.  Since leaving political office with a net worth of $2M, Al has drummed up over $200M with his scam.  Oh, you stupid, gullible fools.  The only thing “inconvenient” is that all you PC dupes are forcing the rest of us to pay for your silliness.

The following is from an editorial in the Washington Times.  Really great stuff.

Perhaps Mr. Gore knows this (that global warming is a fraud.) Last year, he reportedly dropped $8.9 million on a new mansion in an exclusive California neighborhood perilously close to the Pacific. With six bedrooms, six fireplaces and nine baths, Mr. Gore’s palatial ocean-view estate hardly reflects the carbon austerity he expects from everyone else. He was even caught a few years ago by the Tennessee Center for Policy Research failing to extinguish all of the lights in his larger home during “Earth Hour” in the Volunteer State.   (Follow this link to read the whole article.)

PS  Beware all you who would jump on the “greenie” bandwagon (including wind turbine proponents.)  Look before you leap, or you may step in something.

EPA Uses Charities To Do Their Dirty Work


The EPA is using charities and The Clean Air Act to propagandize its fight against global warming.  The CAA was intended by Congress to clean up air pollution, not, as IBD Editorials says, “to fight mythical climate change and regulate down to our lawn mowers the so-called greenhouse gases — including that product of human respiration, carbon dioxide.” Obama is using the EPA to end run around Congress, to pass regulations he can’t get through Congress, attempting to thwart the will of the people.  “To hell with Americans!  We’ll do what I want.”  The same attitude we saw with the passage of Obamacare. Continue reading

Got Debt? Sell Something.


Here’s a novel idea.  When we get ourselves into a financial jam, scratching our heads how we are going to pay the bills, we realize that maybe it’s time to sell the boat, or that condo that we only stay in one week a year.  It’s that or take a second job.  Since our time is already stretched to the limit, we reluctantly decide to sell one of our prized possessions.  Who else can you think of who might benefit from this sage advice?  Maybe our Uncle Sam?  You wouldn’t believe how much “stuff” he has lying around. Continue reading

EPA Overreaching?


There is at least one struggle where I support both sides, not necessarily their issues or policies, but their right to fight for their cause.  That is the fight between environmentalists and business.  Both sides are needed to maintain balance.  Should one side or the other gain control, the whole country would suffer.  As each group promotes its agenda, it is up to the public to provide reason and common sense to keep them in check.  Should the tree huggers gain too much authority and start shutting down the logging industry, adding ridiculously stringent regulations, putting people out of work, causing product prices to increase, etc.; or should they start closing parks, depriving the public of their recreation; then the public voice will rise up against them and slap them down.  On the other hand, should business gain the upper hand and start being wasteful, or polluting just to save a dollar, throwing stewardship to the wind, chasing after the almighty dollar, then public outrage will snap them back into reality with more regulations and fines, demanding preservation and clean air and water.

Wind Energy Is Not Economically Feasible, And Costs Jobs To Boot


Here is another story revealing that wind energy is not an economically feasible energy alternative.  IBD cites a study of green energy jobs in the UK and their effect on traditional jobs.  ” (F)or every job created in the alternative energy sector, almost four jobs are lost in the rest of the economy.”  So not only is wind energy much more costly to produce than by traditional methods, heavily dependent on government subsidies to compete, but it costs net jobs, which the taxpayers have to subsidize through unemployment benefits. Studies throughout Europe confirm the findings of the UK report.  Lost jobs are an added hidden cost of green energy. Continue reading
