Thousands gathered in Washington, D.C. to protest man-made global warming. Needless to say, they received a very cold reception from the Obama administration and leftist environut politicians.
Looks like a hostile crowd to me.
Note: This is for entertainment purposes. If the likeness of any of these figures resembles any person living, dead, or otherwise, it is purely coincidental. If any snow person (I want to be PC here) is offended by what is presented here, please melt as quickly as possible. If any leftist nut job in defense of defenseless snow people is offended—get a friggin’ life…or better yet, “chill out”!
Despite a GOP boycott, Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), chairwoman of the U.S. Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee and other Democrats on the committee approved a climate change bill that would require cuts in greenhouse gas emissions by 20 percent over the next decade from 2005 levels [Article – Senate Panel Approves Climate Change Bill Despite GOP Boycott].
In typical overreaching fashion, leftist politicians are attempting to force unpopular economy-killing legislation through. However, there is a silver lining: The bill has passed committee, but it now goes to the Senate floor, where it is expected to die an ignominious death.
This goes along with a previously submitted ACW post, touching on how leftist politicians tirelessly and tenaciously try to further their destructive interests [Reference – German Chancellor Merkel And The Climate Change “Wall”].
To be sure, the battle to force through legislation based on junk science will continue. Without unwavering, steadfast opposition to leftist environmental lunacy, it is a guarantee that climate change legislation will be passed and the suffering of the American people will last for decades.
Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of the pulling down of the wall separating East and West Berlin in Germany. For the first time, a German head of state spoke before U.S. Congress. German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed members of U.S. Congress and one of the subjects Merkel spoke about was the need for a global deal on climate change [Article – Merkel meets with Obama, then talks to Congress]. Perhaps a symbolic appeal by Merkel to tear down the climate change “wall” [Article – The European Experience with Cap and Trade]?
With support for cap and trade legislation on the decline, President Obama vows that the United States will play a prominent role in decreasing global greenhouse gas emissions. Obama’s answer to the climate change question is cap and trade legislation.
The Waxman-Markey bill or rather, Taxman-Malarkey bill (H.R. 2998 – American Clean Energy And Security Act Of 2009) is currently in limbo, since health care reform legislation has taken center stage. Beltway politicians have certainly been working behind the scenes on slipping cap and trade legislation through, with very little public scrutiny…so they hope.
If the United States agrees to comply with some sort of global climate change contract in Copenhagen, Denmark, this will surely embolden leftist environut anti-capitalists in America to get climate change-related cap and trade legislation enacted.
If such a bill goes through, it will destroy the American economy, no ands, ifs or buts about it. We think unemployment is bad now, wait and see how high it will be if cap and trade becomes law. In addition, we and future generations of Americans will pay dearly for the taxes, fees and other costs climate change legislation will incur [Article – Leading Climate Scientist: Cap and Trade Could Ruin US Economy | Reference – Treasury Department – Climate Change Bill Could Cost American Families $1,761 A Year].

On October 14, Lord Christopher Monckton, chief policy advisor to the Science and Public Policy Institute, issued this stern warning:
Right on queue, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown recently issued this statement in reference to the upcoming Copenhagen climate change summit:
What would be the most convenient way to oppress the world of mankind for decades to come? What would be the best way to destroy western civilization and/or capitalism once and for all? What would be the most efficacious method of bringing about a one-world government? Global climate change.
A group of global elitists could easily control who and what they want, all in the name of saving the planet or averting a global “crisis”. Remember what Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel said: Read More…
That’s what the decidedly non-conservative BBC is asking (emphasis in original):
This headline may come as a bit of a surprise, so too might that fact that the warmest year recorded globally was not in 2008 or 2007, but in 1998.
But it is true. For the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures.
And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.
Right there, in the third paragraph, is the problem with all global warming (or climate change, if you prefer) doomsday scenarios: the climate models are woefully inadequate at forecasting! If you take the weather conditions from, say, a year ago and plug them into a climate model, I’ve not yet heard of a single model that would correctly predict how the weather actually turned out. Therefore, they are absolutely useless in predicting how the climate is going to change in the next 5 or 10 years, not to mention even further out.
Until and unless the “climate change” Chicken Littles out there get themselves a model that can actually predict reliably, I’ll be a reliable skeptic of their doomsday prognostications.
