Lot of Hot Air Rising Over the EPA
by Susan Brown
Riddle me this, climate change proponents: If the ice caps are melting on the planet Mars, and Mars has no cars or little green men to cause Mars’ south pole carbon dioxide melt, who is to blame for this crime against Martianity?
You’d think with all the brain-power massed in Copenhagen during last year’s Climate Change conference, someone would have addressed the red planet’s plight. Seems they were a bit preoccupied counteracting the collateral damage from their CO2 “crisis” cover-up gone bad when leaked emails from University of East Anglia professor, Phil Jones, revealed an attempt to manipulate evidence that the globe is actually cooling – not warming. Junk scientists later explained to the rest of the ignorant masses that this global cooling period is a side effect of global warming. That makes about as much sense as saying, “My hypothermia is a side effect of my fever.”
We earthlings seem to have a propensity to complicate things when we dismiss the obvious in search for truth. But there is one who refused to dismiss the obvious and a very simple answer came from a very smart man with a complicated name. Habibullo Abdussamatov, (space research head at St. Peterburg’s Plukovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia) dismissed urban myths and walked away from pop culture to deduce the culprit is not the man on the moon, little green men, or those dastardly humans. Abdussamatov’s research found that ice caps melt – because the sun is hot. You may want to let that sink in for a moment.
Solar heat fluctuations led to a pattern that matches ice ages and climate changes – on both planet earth and Mars. In a 2007 National Geographic article, Abdussmatov said that man-made greenhouse warming “cannot compete with the increase in solar irradiance.” Bottom line: the sun did it.
With Cap and Trade legislation dead-on-arrival, the Obama administration forged ahead undaunted, and on December 7, 2009, it authorized the EPA to enact new greenhouse gas emissions regulations, effectively bypassing the Democratic process – which begs the question – why? A Time.com article proposes the EPA regulations will be a job killer when it lays a “heavy burden on U.S. business.” With unemployment at a record high and world leaders currently outraged at the Obama administration for devaluing the dollar, it makes no sense that Obama would follow through with a promise he made to the San Francisco Chronicle in January 2008, “Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket “
An August 2, 2010 Canada Free Press article by Dr. Tim Ball (former climatology professor, environmental consultant and advisor to the International Climate Science Coalition, Friends of Science and the Frontier Centre for Public Policy) helps to shed some light in his most informative article, EPA control of CO2: Obama’s Vehicle To Destroy The US Economy is Launched.
Dr. Ball wrote, “The science has failed and been exposed as a deliberate fraud…Obama keeps pushing because it is the heart of attacks designed to destroy the industrialized, fossil fuel driven, capitalist economy.” The ultimate goal, says Ball “is to undermine the economy and then offer government control as the savior.”
Last November 30, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said, “Climate change is happening…” Of course, climate “change” is happening – we see it four times each year when the seasons change. Despite sensible logic, there are always the gullible – those who are willing to relinquish their freedom and their cash for the cause. But, before you do, might I first interest you in some newly formed lakefront property on the south side of Mars?
