Remember the power that word had when you were a kid? Teachers used it as a tool to control unruly children. It was used in neighborhood games like tag.
It meant stop, immediately. Don't move a muscle. Drop everything you're doing. Stay in that position until someone touches you or says, "Simon says."
That's what I want to say to anyone involved in any legislation or official discussions having to do with global warming or carbon emissions. To all the people (except the Republicans) at the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen,
Drop everything you're doing. Don't do anything until the real science comes in. Don't continue as if nothing has happened. I know a lot of you have a lot of money riding on this hoax, but try being a member of the human race for a moment. You must stop what you're doing and reconsider before basing laws, declarations and rules on tainted science, especially when that science has come under legitimate public scrutiny in a scandalous manner. Don't use this questionable foundation on which to build regulations that could change the entire landscape of America's economy. Don't eliminate the middle class because of outrageous energy costs that would affect every aspect of American life: our homes, our schools, our transportation, our dreams. Please,
President Obama, stop meeting with people like Al Gore. Start listening to those who uncovered the epic deception of ClimateGate. (I know the article in this link is very long, but I encourage you to read all of it. You'll come away with a much better understanding of ClimateGate and the Global Warming ruse.) I would have the utmost respect for President Obama if he stopped and admitted he was duped like the rest of us (well not all of us, but those who bought the whole anthropogenic global warming thing).
From the American Thinker: "After all, the stakes are enormous: perhaps trillions of dollars and unquestionably every American’s personal liberties. Tomorrow, over 20,000 delegates from 193 nations will gather in Copenhagen to craft an agreement which would not only force American power consumption to levels equal to those of about 1910, but would also have us pay reparations for an imaginary “climate debt” we’ve accumulated by building the world’s greatest economy of all time."
But they won't. President Obama is going to Copenhagen to tell the world he promises America will reduce its carbon emissions by 17 percent less than 2005 levels by 2020, eventually leading to an 80 percent reduction of emissions based on 2005 levels by 2050.
First of all, what kind of an idiot believes America can or will accomplish such an outlandish thing? Some scientists say these kinds of reductions would put us at power consumption levels not just of 1910, as stated above, but of the 1850's, or equal to some of the world's poorest nations, like Somalia. Secondly, what kind of president wants his country to regress instead of progress? President Obama, I guess. So much for the "progressive" party.
The global warming apologists are in full force. This from POLITICO: "...the Environmental Defense Fund’s Peter Goldmark told POLITICO Wednesday that climategate isn’t coming up in private meetings among nongovernmental organizations in Copenhagen and is not an issue for negotiators."
Eden Prairie's own Peter Bozanich got it right more than two years ago when he wrote "Beware of global warming extremism" in the Eden Prairie News. We have already seen some of what Bozanich says global warming extremists will do to squelch those who attempt to uncover their fraud (e.g., censorship: mainstream media's lack of/slow coverage of ClimateGate), and I'm sure we'll see plenty more in the future. Certainly Copenhagen attendees' completely ignoring ClimateGate is consistent with Bozanich's arguments.
When I was a kid, they used to tell us an ice age was coming. I used to be afraid and lie in bed at night trying to figure out how far south I'd have to move so the glaciers that were sure to cover Minnesota wouldn't get me. We've traded one environmental horror story with which to scare the kiddies for another. Just stop it.
