The Coming Green Tsunami|
January 17, 2009
As a record breaking cold front envelops the United States, another front is picking
up steam in Washington D.C. The 'global warming' front.
record-breaking extreme cold
that is freezing the Midwest and dropping temperatures
close to 50 below in spots,
the incoming Obama administration continues to appoint, enlist and enable global
warming warriors in the highest echelons of government.
In opening remarks at her confirmation hearing for Secretary of State on Tuesday,
Hillary promised that she would shape foreign
would fight climate change
. “At the extreme it threatens our very
existence. But well before that point, it could well incite new wars of an old kind
over basic resources – like food, water and arable land.”
Like her long time colleague Rahm Emanuel, Hillary knows how to make the most of
a crisis, either real or manufactured. With her old slogan 'for the children' worn from
overuse, Hillary has jumped aboard the global warming bandwagon, astutely recognizing
that labeling an issue or policy 'green' will virtually ensure speedy passage and
Ditto for the nominations of Lisa Jackson to be administrator of the Environmental
Protection Agency and Nancy Sutley to be chairman of the Council on Environmental
Jackson tells the committee
that cutting emissions of toxic chemicals and
pollution that contribute to global warming will be among the new administration's
top environmental goals.
Steven Chu, President-elect Barack Obama's pick to be U.S. energy secretary, said
Tuesday that he will tackle the threat of global warming
seeking a cap-and-trade system
to cut greenhouse gas emissions, which would
require power plants, oil refineries and other industrial facilities to buy and
sell pollution permits to spew global warming emissions. Translation: redistribution
of wealth from wealthy countries to poor countries.
Even GOP Governors
have signed on to the green agenda, urging their congressional colleagues to start the new Congress with unprecedented
dedication to addressing global warming.
The green tsunami is about to sweep America. The chairman of a key committee promises
to move “quickly and decisively” to push legislation
curbing greenhouse gases
with a goal of passing climate legislation out
of his committee before Memorial Day.”
Bureaucrats at the EPA are chomping at the bit, eagerly paving
the way for more
regulation over ever increasing segments of the economy
by seeking to have
classified as a pollutant.
This would result in government control
over such common
activities as watering the lawn, or using a
hot tub or swimming pool. Even breathing.
Imagine, the government could soon regulate any conceivable activity under the rubric
of either harming the environment or endangering national security.
Taking a cue from the
Feds, cities across the nation are eagerly anticipating the imminent green tsunami,
with Madison, Wisconsin leading the pack. Currently under consideration in Madison,
- needed to fight climate change, doncha know.
These onerous new restrictions include limiting waterfront development in the name
of water sustainability, limiting fast food restaurants in the name of public health
and limiting private parking option, in favor of public transportation. Virtually
anything may now be 'eliminated' under the heading
of saving the earth. And the
public is buying it.
If news doesn't fit the new green template, its simply not reported by the American
media. Like the news that a large and compelling
body of evidence
from within the field of climate science suggests that the earth is now on the brink of entering
another Ice Age.
Or the Belfast Environmental Minister, who recently
that "Spending billions on trying to reduce carbon emissions
is one giant con that is depriving third world countries of vital funds to tackle
famine, HIV and other diseases"
Or President Vaclav Klaus of the Czech Republic, the European Union's new figurehead,
who believes that climate change is
a dangerous myth
and has compared the EU to a Communist state. Just so.
Also swept under the rug is the
credible and serious challenge
from over 650 dissenting scientists from
around the globe who are criticizing the climate claims made by the UN International Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore.
Three years ago, it was estimated that, if passed, the Kyoto Treaty would cost every
American app $7,500.00, one of the reasons it wasn't even considered by the Senate.
The present day costs involved to fight this imaginary foe are quadrupling as we
speak. What do we get for this money? We'll never know, as the results and/or outcomes
are impossible to calculate. Can you spell unaccountable?
The subject of global warming is a complicated one, with valid arguments on both
sides. It should be cause for alarm, however, that the government, the media, academia
and world elites are all speaking in one voice, with no dissenting viewpoints allowed.
Another cause for alarm is the fact that all the proposed solutions to this faux
crisis just happen to coincide with every issue dear to liberals: i.e.: more government,
more regulation, wealth distribution, population control, and global governance.
The 'global warming crisis', as it is being used today, is the perfect vehicle to
impose Soro's goal of a one world government. Virtually any liberal policy may now
be enacted, in the name of Mother Earth. And unless someone starts fighting
back, America may very well end up as green toast.
