Using the Global Warming Hoax to Destroy America

cartoonWhen President Obama announced on March 31 that he intends to ensure that the U.S. will slash its “greenhouse gas emissions” 26% below 2005 emissions levels by 2025 in order to keep pledges made to fulfill the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, he failed to mention that such levels would be comparable to what they were in our Civil War era, 150 years ago.

He also failed to mention that the U.S. has made no such pledges as regards the 1992 “Kyoto Treaty” which was resoundingly rejected by the U.S. Senate when then Vice President Al Gore brought it back from the U.N. conference.

There is no need, globally or nationally, to reduce such emissions. It would be a crime against humanity, especially for the millions that would be denied electrical power or would see its cost rise exponentially. “The President has no credible evidence to back up his claims,” said H. Sterling Burnett, a Research Fellow with the free market think tank, The Heartland Institute. “Obama’s climate actions are likely to cause far more harm to people, especially the poor, than any purported threats from global warming.”

“Global warming” and “climate change” are attributed to the use of fossil fuels to manufacture and transport ourselves and our goods, and to create electrical energy, despite the fact that the Earth, its oceans and land areas naturally generate such gases.

There are, for example, more than 1500 potentially active volcanoes and countless others under the oceans. They produce billions of tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other gases that are identified as “greenhouse gas emissions.” The human contribution pales in comparison to natural sources such as the warming ocean surface which releases CO2.

Even so, CO2 constitutes a mere 0.04% of the atmosphere. There is no evidence CO2 plays any role in the Earth’s global temperature.

Do these “greenhouse gas emissions” trap heat? Apparently not because the Earth has been in a natural cooling cycle for the past eighteen years breaking and making records for snow and ice. In the 1970s scientists were predicting a new Ice Age. Ten years later they were predicting “global warming.”

Why then is the President intent on slashing “greenhouse gas emissions” when (1) the Earth is not a greenhouse and (2) doing so would harm our economy for decades to come?

The answer lies in his promise to “fundamentally transform” a nation that does not need transformation except for the reduction of the size and scope of the federal government. Its economic system is the best in the world. Its military is the strongest. Its agriculture feeds Americans and is exported to other nations.

As David Rothbard, the president and co-founder of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a free market think tank, noted in the wake of Obama’s announcement, “The President will have to bypass the law-making process and use executive orders and regulations” to achieve his goal of slashing emissions. “To do so requires tortured readings of the Clean Air Act and other current laws.”

Significantly, “the President offers no suitable replacement for the lost generating capacity beyond pointing toward wind and solar which is not up to the task.” When Obama took office, coal-fired plants provided 50% of U.S. electricity. It is now down to 40% and headed lower if Obama has his way.

Rothbard warns that “Global warming campaigners see this presidency and the Paris U.N. Summit as the best chance they are likely to see to take control of American energy. The ramifications are disastrous for American freedom and prosperity.”

This brings us to the what John L. Casey, founder of the Space and Science Research Corporation, (SSRC), an independent scientific research organization in Orlando, says about the forthcoming November 30 to December 15 U.N. climate conference in Paris which he describes as “doomed” and that’s the good news.

Its announced goal of imposing global limits on greenhouse gas emissions will not be mandatory and “President Obama has effectively gutted any meaningful agreement among the major industrialized nations, by having granted to the planet’s largest CO2 producer, China, free license to build as many coal power plants as they wish, and emit as many gigatons of greenhouse gases as they wish until 2030.”

This is, in fact, a global trend as many developing nations such as India do the same thing. Nor will they suddenly shut down electricity production fifteen years from now.

This huge, international farce formerly known as the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, began as an international treaty created in 1992. The U.S. Senate refused to ratify the Kyoto Treaty, but pledges to reduce greenhouse gases were made by 33 out of 195 countries, called their “Intended National Determined Contribution” are the main feature at the forthcoming Paris conference.

For all the media attention the President will try to generate for this idiocy, Ken Haapala, president of the Science and Environmental Policy Project, says “It is unlikely that the current Senate would approve a binding agreement.”  Haapala notes that lawmakers that include the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK)m and Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), “have all insisted that the international agreement the U.N. is working on is a treaty and cannot be enforced without Senate approval.”

Sen. McConnell warned, “Considering that two-thirds of the U.S. Federal government hasn’t even signed off on the Clean Power Plan and 13 states have already pledged to fight it, our international partners should proceed with caution before entering into a binding, unattainable deal.”

While most Americans have concluded that “global warming” or “climate change” are low on their list of fears President Obama has elevated this hoax to the top of his agenda for his last two years in office, along with the deal that would give Iran the opportunity to build a nuclear arsenal of weapons.

He doesn’t want to “transform” America. He wants to destroy it.

    Obama can pledge what ever he wants .Make it 100% who cares it is going no where .

    The USA population is expected to increase over the pledged reduction period ,2015-2025.The Presidents pledge is for a 26% less than 10 years ago so the actual effect is far greater. The Presidents arbitrary dates and pledge will never happen without the elected representatives of Congress support and apparently unlike the President they are not into political or economic suicide measures .

    The cost to be the american public will be in $$Trillions of dollars with no net social benefit . Spending money you don’t have over a non crisis is the Obama legacy .

    Why not try a test run .

    Cut 30 % of USA power and fuel production
    during the time of the entire Paris conference
    and see what happens .

      Why punish us?

      Cut the power in Paris.

      The United Nations Climate Change Conference runs from November 30th to December 11th. I say turn off the power starting on the 29th of November and turn it back on December 10th. Let the Parisians take to the streets to tell the IPCC know how they feel about their humanity hating Luddite Conference.

      Leftist anti-logic at it’s finest. On one hand they want unlimited illegal immigration into the US, while at the same time they talk about depopulating the earth?

      These people are insane.

    I never really liked the word “hoax” to describe the global warming/climate change scam. To me, it’s just a bit too whimsical, like a practical joke. Ha ha, gotcha. No, what’s going on here is outright, in your face FRAUD!

      I agree “hoax” is way too benign to describe this. The words “crime” and “extortion” also work on many levels to describe this malignant distortion of science and public trust.

    Mr. Caruba, for a long time your work has provided compelling facts that merit at least an immediate halt to all US CO2 related spending. No halt has happened. I believe the cause is defeated and time is wasted by framing this as an Obama issue. This gives cover to the only two people on the planet who can stop it, Boehner and McConnell. They know it’s a fraud, they know that China controls global CO2 and nothing the US does will effect global CO2. These two men have had 2 and 3 decades of daily access to microphones. In that time CO2 scare has become a $2 billion a day industry. As know, the CO2 cash machine was set up in 1990 in the Executive branch by George Bush #1 via USGCRP. Bush’s EPA chief, Wm. Reilly, was handpicked by Bush from his job as WWF pres. The point is this isn’t a democrat matter. Both parties made it and love it. Republicans must become the entire focus of this fraud. As of now they’re being given a pass when all the blame is put on the so-called left. The only people who want this stopped are right of center voters. Unfortunately the GOP has made clear they couldn’t care less what their voters want. But why give them a pass after the decades of fraud they’ve enabled? Thanks.

      Why not attack the fundamentality that carbon dioxide is in no way material to the fiction of supposed global warming.

      Global warming and catastrophic climate change are not happening. And carbon dioxide has nothing to do with it anyway.

      Consult the Thermal Infrared Spectrography graphs / curves of the supposed greenhouse gasses and compare them to the most prevalent gasses in the atmosphere, like Nitrogen, Oxygen, Argon, and Water Vapor.

      I defy anyone to thereafter say that there is a ” Greenhouse Effect “.

      Scientifically, it is a proven LIE.
