Congress To Debate Intrusive Global Warming Bill

Get ready.

Hey folks,

Even in the face of the reality that we have not warmed since 98. In the face of the fact we are now in a cooling cycle. In the face of the fact that more and more Scientists are coming out and saying that GW is BS. Congress is debating the most intrusive form of Government control and power that we have ever seen. All in the name of saving the Planet.

According to the AP - Congress weighs far-reaching global warming bill By DINA CAPPIELLO, Associated Press Writer Dina Cappiello, Associated Press Writer – Sat Apr 18, 11:08 am ET

WASHINGTON – The last time Congress passed major environmental laws, acid rain was destroying lakes and forests, polluted rivers were on fire and smog was choking people in some cities.

The fallout from global warming, while subtle now, could eventually be even more dire. That prospect has Democrats pushing legislation that rivals in scope the nation's landmark anti-pollution laws.

Lawmakers this coming week begin hearings on an energy and global warming bill that could revolutionize how the country produces and uses energy. It also could reduce, for the first time, the pollution responsible for heating up the planet.

WRONG! Just a flat out SCAM. If you really want to know what is heating the planet right now, it is all the hot air coming from those spouting the SCAM. The planet is NOT in danger. There is NO GLOBAL WARMING.

If Congress balks, the Obama administration has signaled a willingness to use decades-old clean air laws to impose tough new regulations for motor vehicles and many industrial plants to limit their release of climate-changing pollution.

What the False Messiah wants, the False Messiah will get.

The Environmental Protection Agency on Friday said rising sea levels, increased flooding and more intense heat waves and storms that come with climate change are a threat to public health and safety. The agency predicted that warming will worsen other pollution problems such as smog.

The Sea Levels are NOT rising. That has already been proven. There is no increased flooding. Where are the intense heat waves? Where are the storms? Did the powers to be NOT just predict an AVERAGE, to below average Hurricane season this year? Sorry, the FACTS do not add up to catastrophe.

"The EPA concluded that our health and our planet are in danger. Now it is time for Congress to create a clean energy cure," said Rep. Ed Markey, D-Mass., one of the sponsors of the American Clean Energy and Security Act.


If passed, it would be the first major environmental protection law in almost two decades. In addition to attempting to solve a complex environmental problem associated with global warming, the bill also seeks to wean the nation off foreign oil imports and to create a new clean-energy economy.

WE ALREADY HAVE THE ANSWER! Drill here, Drill now, and use our own resources to become Energy independent. Meanwhile we can play make believe and investigate the non-existent "alternative energy" sources.

"It's a big undertaking," said the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif. Waxman and Markey presented their 648-page bill last month.

Of course, the Waxman. Another IDIOT!

From 1969 to 1980, Congress passed more than a dozen environmental bills tackling everything from air and water pollution and garbage, as well as protections for fisheries, marine mammals and endangered species. In 1990, the Clean Air Act was overhauled to address the problem of acid rain created by the sulfur dioxide released from coal-burning power plants.

Yet they are toying with the idea of shooting sulfur into the sky to cool the planet by blocking out the Sun. BRILLIANT. I guess we should just fire up MORE Coal Burning Plants.

"We had two decades of extraordinary legislation and almost two decades of nothing," said Richard Lazarus, a Georgetown University law professor and author of "The Making of Environmental Law." "If this one passes, it will certainly be an outburst."

OK. Let me ask the obvious question here. Since we did enact all this garbage, why do we have a crisis now? So we need to enact even more? For the same outcome? Is this what they are telling us?

There are many reasons why Congress' chances to succeed in passing global warming legislation are improved this year, but by no means assured.

After President George W. Bush did little about global warming in his two terms, there is "a lot pent up demand" for action on climate, said William Ruckelshaus, the first administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

Both the Democratic-controlled Congress and President Barack Obama agree that legislation is needed to limit emissions of greenhouse gases and radically alter the nation's energy sources. They want to pass a bill by the end of the year.

"For the first time ever, we have got the political actors all aligned," said Lazarus. "That is not enough to get a law passed, but that is a huge start. We haven't been close to that before."

Well, I'm glad the kooks are happy.

Unlike the 1970s, when the first environmental laws passed nearly unanimously, Republicans are opposed. They question whether industry and taxpayers can afford to take on global warming during an economic recession.

Then there is the question whether the public will have the appetite to accept higher energy prices for a benefit that will not be seen for many years. Climate change ranks low on many voters' priority lists.

NO! WE WILL NOT HAVE THE APPETITATE TO ACCEPT HIGHER ENERGY PRICES!!!! That is the whole point by the way. MONEY! Money, power, and control. As I keep telling you. And it will not be years before we see any benefit. It will be forever. Because there is no threat.

Every year since 2001 has been among the 10 warmest years on record. Sea ice in the Arctic and glaciers worldwide are melting.

Completely wrong. Care to give the dates, tempts, and history? I bet they will not give you this. If they did, you would find that they are incorrect here. But they never give you actual facts backed by REAL Science, because if they did, you would see that it is a scam.

But the problems are not as apparent as they were in the 1970s, or even the early 1990s, when Congress addressed acid rain and depletion of the ozone layer.

"If carbon dioxide were brown, we wouldn't have the same problem," said Gus Speth, who organized the Natural Resources Defense Council in 1970. "But it's a subtle issue. ... The problems are chronic not acute, and it is largely invisible to people unless they're reading the newspaper or checking the glaciers or going to the South Pole."

{Sigh} Yeah, and it's also NOT a pollutant. No matter how many times they say it is.

In 1969, oil and debris in the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland burst into flames, an incident that led to the passage of the Clean Water Act. That same year, a blowout at an offshore oil platform off Santa Barbara, Calif., spilled millions of gallons of oil onto beaches. And long before that, a smog episode in Donora, Pa., in 1948 killed 20, sparking a crusade against air pollution.

"There was so much evidence — sort of smell, touch and feel kind of evidence — that the environment was really in trouble," said Ruckelshaus. "We had real problems, real pollution problems that people could see on the way to work. And there were rivers catching on fire and terrible smog events."

With climate, "you are asking people to worry about their grandchildren or their children," he said. "That is why it will be so tough to get something like this through."

No. It's because there is NO REAL Science backing the SCAM. There is what can only be called Bad Science. Phony Science. Funny and FALSE Science. A bunch of people working together to perpetrate the SCAM. Computer models with information inputted to them by those same people to spit out what they WANT them to spit out. Even then, they can not prove the SCAM.

I know with all these Idiots, you may be thinking that this is the IWA, but believe it or not, this is actually the Heath and Science Segment this week. {Smile} I hope this gets you as angry as it gets me. I love science. I love FACTS. This is nothing by BS. Complete and utter BS. But with Obama and Crew, what else would you really expect?
