Posts Tagged ‘Climate Change’


Of the people, by the people, and for the people – apparently not!  When you look at the polls and look behind them you see an electorate (democrat, republican, libertarian, etc.) that is in such discontent, even spitting angry, over the politics and governance of this country.  Neither major party is held in high regard as both parties have placed party and special interests above country.

Look inside the Democratic Party, and you will find two very distinct parties.  The party has old line democrats who have not yet realized that their party has been taken over by left wing radicals – well there are so many “radicals” that perhaps we cannot call them radicals any longer.  Radical thinking is no longer radical when the number of proponents reaches a critical mass, and it has.  It is a movement of such strength that it can topple our Republic.

These radicals are the socialist, wealth, and health care re-distribution advocates.  Their climate change philosophy is centered on America literally paying monetary tribute to the less developed nations of the world. They claim we owe these underdeveloped nations our wealth since we have been successful and have destroyed the atmosphere with carbon dioxide –stuff plants and trees love.  This is the core driver of this crisis of climate change or global warming.

If we were to institute all the changes the climate change supporters want, we would see worldwide abject poverty grow and widespread food shortages.  The result will be that we will only affect man made climate change by about 1% in the next 100 years.  (This statement can be supported by many prominent scientists and economists, but this writing is not the place for this debate.  If you must digress into this argument then view John Stossel’s information on the topic or do your own research.) As we have recently seen with the exposed emails of leading climate change scientists, Jones (the UN’s key scientist for the IPCC) and Mann, among others, climate change is certainly not settled science and their manipulation of the data findings, destruction of the raw data, and their overt attempt to squelch professional, educated dissent makes this a political wealth distribution gambit and not science.

Climate change is a well disguised and well planned assault on our Republic and the free market system.  The current populist movement is fermented by those who seek national wealth redistribution and to expunge capitalism, because capitalism is supposedly a detriment to the people of the world.  This is also driven by these former radicals, now just far left believers.  Our President and many in Congress are drivers of this movement.

Capitalism is not the problem. The problem facing our Republic is the marriage of government and big business that enhances the corporate profit motive – largess for the elites at all cost is the result of this unholy alliance.  The relationship between our federal government and Goldman Sachs is almost incestuous.  The number of government officials in and around the White House and Treasury, who were Goldman Sachs executives, is staggering   – true under both the Obama and Bush administrations.  Why has our government become wed to these corporations?

For the government, mostly made up of democrats, this means that small business enterprise can be squeezed out and unions supporting the democrats will prosper.  Unions do not do well when small business creates 70 plus percent of the jobs in this country.  When the government eliminates small business as a major jobs grower, the government will grow, foster more pro democrat union memberships, and the democrats will have a built in support system to simply stay in power.  Take a look at the government payrolls.  The salaries of government workers average nearly double those of the private sector.  Remember this is tax payer money being paid in large grants to those who economically produce nothing for the country.  The nature of government work is to manage government and not to produce goods and services.

For corporations this means government capital availability and big profits.  This also means special interests rule Congress and no longer is “What is good for the nation” the top agenda item.   “What is good for the small echelon of corporate elites” moves to the top of the Congressional legislative calendar.  This means that Congress no longer represents the people – can we say it is official now?– that the goal of Congress is to make more than half the nation beholden to the Democratic Party and to raise money from the corporate elites.  We are seeing a government coup occur center stage as we look on.  The Congress through the last stimulus bill, omnibus bill, and now the health care bills has written enough empowerment to bureaucratic regulators and entitlements for the tax takers of America that what has been done, might never be undone.  Government bureaucrats continue to be given the ability to make law, without Congress’ approval and the requisite signature of the President.  Entitlements are targeted to those who pay little or no taxes, but have a vote.  Current decisions by our government, mostly against the growth of small business, are focused on keeping the number of tax takers at a voting majority level and yes, keeping them beholden to the Democrats.

By now you are thinking this writer is just bashing the Democrats.  Well, it is the Republican’s turn.  Two Congresses ago, the Republicans attempted the same un-American plan that the Democrats are carrying out with perfection, they just did not know how to do it well.  Look through the ranks of the Republican Party leadership and you will find a host of Congressman and Senators who also regularly put party ahead of country.  The problem is that too many Republicans are dependent on democrat voters and special interest money – they may wear different uniforms in the Congress, but they sell their souls to the same devil.  No longer is it “Damn Yankee!” – it’s now “Damn American!”  The powerful moneyed special interests are Lola and “What Lola wants Lola gets.”  Climate change just serves to make them richer.

How did we get here?  Well the Constitution has and had a number of protections against this coup that is taking place, but sadly some powers are lost and new ones need to be enacted.  First, the states, you know, those sovereign powers that created the United States Government in 1787 and actually super cede the Federal Government under the Constitution in Article 1, Section 8 and the Tenth Amendment, need to push for a repeal of the 17th amendment.

The Founders looking for a way for the states to control a centralized Federal Government created a control rod for the states, called the Senate.  Senators were appointed by the states’ legislatures and not directly elected by the people.  This made the Senators accountable only to the states’ legislatures and governors.  The states, via the Senate, were given the power to provide advice and consent on appointees, including judicial, and to ratify treaties with two thirds of the Senate voting in the affirmative.  Most importantly, the states through the Senate were given the power to keep the House of Representatives in check and continue the rights which their sovereignty brought them.

The 17th amendment removed the Senate as an arm of the states in 1913.  This was a crucial mistake by the Congress and the states ratifying the amendment.  Senators were now subject to the money and power of specials interests, instead of the one special interest they represented – their state.

What if this “angry electorate” votes out the incumbents?  Will this change the special interests’ impact?  Will the elite corporate echelon disappear? No! They will just have new meat to work with, new people to make rich.  Members of Congress have learned that entry into the club of representative government means that they can retire rich, give us our own money to buy votes, and provide for a cushy retirement and a wonderful lifetime medical plan.

Unless and until we successfully remove the money and largess of riches bestowed on our lawmakers nothing will change.  We are told that term limits already exist – called voting for the other guy.  Well, sitting Representatives have the decked stacked in campaign contributions and in name recognition, so that they are returned to Congress over 90% of the time.  Does this sound like to you what the Founders intended for the “People’s House”?

Our Republic founded in 1787 , with its “People’s House” and its upper house, the Senate, formerly representing the states, is in serious danger of morphing into what it was never intended to be, an inefficient socialist  economy and an oligarchy government with no real representation of the people.  It was intended to be the best form of government possible – not perfect, but better than all the rest.

Ill conceived changes to our Constitution and 21st century forces from corporate greed and special interest money, never anticipated by the Founders, are seriously threatening this grand and successful form of republican government.

If you want to vote out the incumbents go ahead, but then unceasingly demand of your candidate a constitutional amendment that will:

  • prohibit any campaign money received by a congressional candidate from any source other than a source predominantly domiciled in the candidate’s district;
  • prohibit all earmarks, limiting all appropriations to openly debated expenditures;
  • prohibit a congressional representative from accepting gift funds or in-kind services  from any person or organization, until five years after leaving office;
  • repeal the 17th amendment;
  • establish Congressional term limits at three terms;
  • prohibit retirement from the House; and
  • prohibit Congressional medical benefits one year after leaving office.

If your candidate commits to this amendment, then vote him or her in, otherwise find and support a candidate who will.

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.
