  • A Grande Distraction (Robert Coon On Politics)
    Last week, while stepping of Marine One, President Obama made an error in judgment that has set off a firestorm of criticism. But while critics have pounced, Obama's supporters have dismissed it as a non-event. Just how big a deal is the "latte salute" anyway?

Climate Change September 26th, 2014

"You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity. Earth is four and a half billion years old. A million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can't imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven't got the humility to try. We've been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we're gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.” Michael Crichton

The science is settled because climate change advocates say it is, just like the science was settled when the Earth was flat, when the Earth was the center of the universe and in the 1970's when these same people were telling us that the Earth was cooling. If you believe your own hypothesis, you are not a scientists. Science tests hypotheses in an attempt to disprove them and the fact is, every prediction made by climate change advocates over the last 50 years has proven false.

The ice isn't melting. The oceans aren't rising, and while temperatures have steadily increased since the end of the little ice age, they have cooled for the last twenty years. On the basis of this evidence, they want us to give up capitalism and modern living standards.

The United States has spent 50 billion dollars looking for evidence of global warming and all they have found is a political movement whose primary focus is the fact that the United States consumes more than its share of the worlds resources. Over 100 world leaders took part in the climate summit at the U.N., all looking for one thing. Money from U.S. Taxpayers.

This is not science, it's politics, and their goal is worldwide wealth redistribution. The U.N. intends to impose a world carbon tax, but they are not going to tax carbon production or fuel consumption, they want to tax carbon consumption. Instead of taxing China's coal fired power plants, they will tax American's who buy the stuff that was manufactured with it.

The goal isn't to control the Earth's temperature, it's to control the Earth's wealth. There is even talk of distributing the proceeds to everybody on the planet on a per capita basis. But don't get your hopes up. The proceeds of a carbon consumption tax will be distributed like most of the taxes we already pay, to those with access to the people who control it.

The Sierra Club claims to have closed 178 coal fired power plants in the United States. Recent EPA regulations are expected to force the closure of over a hundred more. Meanwhile China and Germany are adding coal fired power plants at a rate of one per week. Coal fired power costs 4 cents per kilowatt hour to produce. Wind and solar costs 22 cents per kilowatt hour. Closing our power plants is not helping the environment. It is hurting the United States.
