Our President is heading to Copenhagen, Denmark in December to attend the UN Climate Change Conference. Six or so cabinet members are heading there as well, in an effort to craft a climate change agreement that would cost us untold trillions in higher energy costs, taxes (Cap and Tax – sorry, I mean Cap and Trade), and lost output and trade capability with the world. He and his cabinet are doing this immediately after revelations that over 1,000 emails on climate change were hacked and made public. These emails clearly show that climate change is not settled science and that there has been a widespread colluded attempt to cook the books, so to speak.

Instead of traveling to Copenhagen, The President should be calling for an investigation on the validity of climate change. He should be placing on hold all climate change initiatives until and when we can get to the bottom of this apparently very questionable movement, unless this movement is not really about climate change at all. Instead, could it be about control and one world government?

Thomas Reuter’s news agency has gone out of its way to minimize this revelation of scientists manipulating and hiding data, calling it a smear campaign. Let me see, reading and publishing emails which are very damming to the writers of those emails and which expose their scientific data on climate as distorted and incomplete is a smear. Reuters, get a grip. We see right through you.

The lame stream media has barely covered the hacking, publishing of the emails, and most importantly the impact of using falsified data to turn this planet’s governments on their collective ear. The New York Times barely touched the hacking, while the Washington Post gave it more space. The TV and cable media, except for Fox News, has apparently not heard of the hacking and the distorted data being used to radically change this country and the planet. The best I could find was a blog on The Kansas City Star’s Midwest Voices web site. To the writer’s credit, he has a nice piece on this issue “The end of blind faith in man-made climate change.” However, this blog is not hard news, just a timely well written and well directed blog.

Does it strike anyone as curious that worldwide government representatives, including United States Congressman, and Senators, and our President, are willing to move heaven and earth on this planet to invoke a policy that will permanently cripple economic growth and bring massive control over the citizens of this planet by forces that have been dubbed “The Climate Gestapo”?  Word from other sources indicate that this is not a game changer and that climate change is real despite the emails.  How can this be? The Wall Street Journal in “Climate emails stoke debate” illustrates this disinterest in facts and cooked data to achieve an outcome.

These emails go back to 1996 and in over 1,000 writings references are made to making data work, hiding data that does not support man-made climate change, and just changing data to support the goal of first selling global cooling to the world, then global warming, and now climate change. How can anyone say with a straight face that these emails do not change the widely held position— that we are suffering man-made “Climate Change”? Yet it is being said despite the knowledge that the data has been cooked to achieve an outcome!

Additionally, we must consider that the UN’s IPCC, – “Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change” –  does not do any research.  Rather it depends on these scientists to  provide research for the IPCC to draw conclusions.  What scientists you ask?  Well the scientists who have been hiding, distorting, and obfuscating data since 1996.  Does this mean that the IPCC has been publishing conclusions taken as fact, based on flawed and intentionally distorted data?  Why yes!

Again, based on the widespread news media and governmental disregard for the bad data and the cooked books, we must boldly ask, “Is there another agenda at play here? Is “Climate Change” a ruse for global governance, at any cost, by the progressives of this world?”

UPDATE: December 3, 2009

The Wall Street Journal is reporting, what the other media, other than Fox News Channel, will not: “Furor Over Climate Triggers U.K. Probe.”

An exposure of the scientific community’s clandestine approach to driving climate change awareness and warnings broke in some media, not all of the “lame” stream media, this weekend.   It appears that emails were hacked and what was found seems to indicate that a real force within the scientific community to silence climate change dissent among equally qualified scientists has been ongoing for some time. The Washington Post has an article, “In the trenches on climate change, hostility among foes”, which looks at the hacking and what corrupt forces have been occurring to shut out those scientists who simply do not concur with the climate change supposedly proven postulation.

As a non-scientist, I am under the understanding that science is not supposed to be based upon a vote or a consensus. It is supposed to be based upon proven tested fact. When some in the scientific community attempt to silence other scientists who have a different view or postulation, then we no longer have science – we now have politics and politics is not science. It appears that scientific rules have not been followed on this climate change postulation.  Ask any scientist of quality and you will find that postulation or theorem must be proven to be taken as scientific fact.

These arrogant “only their opinion counts” people will have us turn this world upside down to fight what may or may not be man made or occurring at all. (Note that the carbon levels keep climbing, but the temperature has not for 11 years.) The self important arrogance of these people appears to be overwhelming, or maybe their opinions are being driven by my the multiple of millions to be made by touting climate change – ask Al Gore.  These folks need to study the history of the planet to see the multitude of radical climate and atmosphere changes that have occurred since the planet was born.

Man’s time on this planet, supported by a climate and atmosphere suitable for man’s existence, is but a single tick on the clock of earth’s history. Why do these arrogant self-important people believe that the earth would and should remain hospitable to man forever?  It is man who needs to adapt, by moving and migrating as man has done for centuries, to more suitable climates and ocean tides and levels, if climate change is real.   We must adapt to any changes to the planet’s atmosphere and not the planet adapting to man.  Man cannot and never will in the near term be able to change the climate, the ocean currents, nor the atmosphere of planet earth – we simply are not that advanced.

What will be next?  Will be be warned against continental shift and attempt to stop it by forcing everyone to move to the center of the continents?  Keep in mind that if one very large asteroid collided with earth, climate change would be immediate and the longterm effects of climate change would be of no concern.  Mankind on earth would probably disappear in a relatively short time frame.

Whatever happened to the national goals of a Strong National Defense, Fiscal Responsibility, Energy Independence, Free Market Solutions, and Individual Liberty? Why have we moved 180 degrees from this goal — a goal that made this country great?

National Defense

Over the past eight years we have worn down and, as of the latest poll of military morale, demoralized our once superb fighting force. We have had two long wars fought with politician oversight, mostly not to win, but to avoid losing. Why are we repeating mistakes of prior wars? We seem to use a calculator and a checkbook to measure our commitment to a fight, rather than providing an all out commitment to win rapidly and decisively.

In an effort to avoid drawing out the Afghan war further, our President, is considering a plan to wind down this conflict and either fight a small scale war or leave entirely. His personally appointed Afghan Commander has provided the President with a plan to win the war, but needs a greater commitment from the White House – a commitment that the White House appears unwilling to make. What the White House, and the many others, who decry that the Afghan war grinds on interminably fail to grasp simple plan. The plan is that similar to the strategy of World War II, where the Pacific Theater was fought as a holding action until the European Theater was won, we have fought a holding action in Afghanistan while we won the Iraqi war.

Our President needs to understand that the reason we went into Afghanistan was that the Taliban were allowing Al Qaeda to move freely, train freely, and constitute a large fighting and terror delivery force. Pulling out of Afghanistan or downsizing the war will embolden the Taliban and re-constitute a powerful al Qaeda. Pulling out now will waste the lives of those who have fallen and the sacrifice of those who suffered injury and permanent handicap fighting that holding action so that we could win in Iraq and then take on Afghanistan to win.

Fiscal Responsibility

Under George Bush and a mostly Republican Congress this nation experienced wild spending. Government intervention via a supposed oversight with a manipulated Community Reinvestment Act, allowed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to light the time fuse for a mortgage meltdown.

Now, Barack Obama and the Democrat Congress have shown the Republicans just what irrational and fiscally unconscionable spending can be. The Democrat spending in the name of stimulus has been off the charts. Unfortunately, the stimulus bill is only stimulating local governments to continue spending, and providing the Congress with the ability to funnel funds to pet, non-stimulating projects—few long term sustainable jobs have been created. Thus the unemployment rate has crossed the 10% threshold, when it was not supposed to go above 8%. We were told that the fiscal situation had reached a crisis of economic collapse and that the stimulus had to be passed quickly and fully to prevent this. Then we were told that no one could foresee just how bad the crisis was. What is worse than a national economic collapse? This failed stimulus and out of control unemployment rate has forced the administration to count “saved” jobs – a measure that simply cannot be realistically counted.

Energy Independence

The Department of Energy was created to find an alternative to gasoline in the Carter Administration—we see how well that went, yet we are still funding a $70+ billion department filled with bureaucracy.

While we sit on an abundance of oil and natural gas, we are pushing a green energy platform that has no hope of meeting the immense power needs of this country in the next ten years. Last year, we produced a little more than 2% of our energy from wind and solar. We have abandoned nuclear power – a source for clean energy, with albeit a disposal problem – yet European nations, and especially France have embraced nuclear. We are seeking to cripple this nation’s resource of cheap energy with Cap and “Tax” — sorry, Cap and Trade. According to CBS News, this effort will raise each family’s home energy bill by $1,761.

This tax will also affect business and everything you consume, by raising prices on just about all good and services originating in this country. This will be a cascading tax. The tax on a tax will have a cascading effect and will hamper small business’ ability to create jobs—these are the folks who generally create about 70% of the jobs in this country. What is absolutely dumbfounding about this effort is that the U.N.’s climate projection models which equated the increase in CO2 with a corresponding increase in earth’s temperature have been proven wrong with actual data. (Jeffrey Ball, Wall Street Journal, Monday, November 2, 2009)

On the matter of this insane backbreaking energy restriction on our economic growth, at a time when we need economic growth to pay down our gargantuan, out of this world debt, I can only assume we have gone mad.

Free Market Solutions

In just about a year, reaching back into the Bush administration, we apparently decided that government knows better that the individual. Government of the people, by the people, and for the people, has become government by and of the elected to the people not for the people — a dangerous change.

We have seen how bond holders suffered a lapse of the rule of law in the way bankruptcies were adjudicated, with unions actually being placed first in line above bond holders. We have seen how executives are being capped on earnings. Yes, there may have been abuses, but the government need not be and should not be the arbiter of how much someone in the private sector can make. Rather the shareholders should have been given more power to control the Boards of these “run a muck” companies, and to control the compensation of the top executives.

We have seen how our government has taken ownership of, and is managing private enterprise companies, like General Motors. Enough! Government can’t manage government, yet win at private enterprise. There is enough corruption in Congress today to greatly overshadow the “greedy” corporate executives, who we have been told are the scourge of the earth and the source of all our problems, by our corrupt government in Washington. For starters, just think about those sweetheart mortgage deals to Chris Dodd and others.

Individual Liberty

The 2,000 page House Bill (H.R. 3962) and the even bigger Senate Bill are supposed to provide health care for those who are uninsured, yet they do not. Too many uninsureds remain uninsured, despite the bills. The final bill will have a front loaded tax revenue stream and a back load delivery date, and it will still costs nearly a Trillion dollars. These bills severely infringe on individual rights and liberty. These bills require individuals to purchase health care insurance or be subject to fines and even jail time.  One taxes small business and both will lead to a single payer universal health care system run by the government.

Why don’t we just buy health insurance for the uninsured – it would be substantially cheaper. These 2,000 page bills are really not intended to provide health insurance for the uninsured. If they did only intend to insure the uninsured, they would only need to be 100 or so pages. Instead the Democrats hide their true agenda behind 2,000 pages wherein they control of our lives and our bodies. Remember how hard the Democrats fought and continmue to fight to allow a woman a choice over her body— “reproductive rights”.  Why then do the Democrats now wish to control every other part of our bodies?
