When the day comes on which we will be able to switch from the use of coal and oil to a man-made synthetic that will do the job just as well, then we will do so - and we will stop withdrawing from Nature’s storehouse of petroleum. It is the common sense way of things. It is the way our survival was insured.
God did not plop man down on a barren planet and allow us to fend for ourselves. He situated us on a planet of plenty and carefully explained that everything we needed to survive was here and we had permission to use it wisely.
For most of our time on this earth, man has used earth’s resources wisely. Well, considering that for the largest part of our sojourn here we did not even know what that meant. But we learned. And we learned to use those resources to better our lives and to create those things we humans require for existence - and then we had the time to create things of beauty in the many and varied forms of art, and so on.
And then, unfortunately, some of us discovered they could control thier fellow man by controlling the use of the earth’s resources. In a manner of speaking –that was when Satan entered the garden!
From that time forth, right up to this day and this hour, we have been in turmoil. Using God’s gifts as weapons tends to do that to those who abuse his generosity.
Today, here in America, formerly the greatest country on earth, those who govern us seek to use God’s gifts to control God’s people, and, ultimately, to enslave God’s people to the yoke of Godless socialism.
Just days ago the US house of Representatives passed a bill that would control the use of all those natural resources in such a manner as to make Americans serfs on their own land. Many of us in the Christian community do not believe that is good stewardship of the bounty of this earth by our government, nor by any government that seeks to gain power for itself at the expense of the people it governs.
The US Senate must now approve the bill before it goes to the President for his signature. Those of us in the Christian community, especially the Christian conservative community, must take advantage of this time window before the Senate brings the bill to the floor for debate and consideration. We must contact our senators and let them know, in no uncertain terms, how we feel about this nation-crushing bill.
Conservatives all over America are gearing up to fight this power grab by our government. Those of us who can are speaking out against this bill.
I received the article below from a fellow conservative a few days ago. He, too, is furious - and - like so many of us who understand what this bill, as law, would do to the America we have known, is a bit frightened by how easy it has been for the Obama Regime to "pull the wool over the eyes" of such a large portion of the American electorate.
Paul Driessen is senior policy advisor for the "Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow" and "Congress of Racial Equality", and author of Eco-Imperialism: Green Power, Black Death. He has hit the nail directly on the head in this piece.
Please read what Paul has written below. Again, we ask that you contact your Senators and demand that they vote "NO" on this Cap and Trade bill.
It is no overstatement to say that if this bill passes, and is signed into law, America, as we have known it, will be gone, quite likely, forever!

US Government’s Climate Con-Job
Obama administration “report” on climate change is deceitful, scare-mongering, bogus science
By: Paul Driessen
But the standards change when “climate catastrophe” is involved.
The White House has made global warming the centerpiece of its revenue-raising and energy policies. A House of Representatives 942-page bill would tax, regulate and penalize all US hydrocarbon energy use, to “save the planet from climate disaster.” The Senate promises an August vote.
But average global temperatures peaked in 1998 and since have fallen slightly, even as carbon dioxide levels continue to climb. Thousands of scientists say CO2 has little effect on planetary temperatures, and there is no climate crisis. Few developed countries are ready to commit economic suicide, by agreeing to reduce their CO2 emissions by a fraction of what the House bill demands for the United States.
Americans are beginning to realize the legislation would cost millions of jobs and trillions of dollars for a hypothetical 0.1 degree F reduction in global temperatures. Most put global warming dead last in a Pew Research list of 20 concerns.
The government’s answer to these inconvenient truths is simple.
Issue another report by government scientists carefully selected to exclude any who don’t subscribe to climate Armageddon. Ignore contrary data and analyses. Crank out more bogus computer-generated worst-case scenarios. Hire an activist media firm that specializes in environmental scare campaigns. And spend tens of millions hyping every imaginable climate disaster:Rising sea levels, floods in lower Manhattan, California beaches permanently submerged. Ferocious hurricanes, floods and droughts. Food shortages, epidemic diseases, a quadrupling of heat-wave deaths in Chicago. Aged sewer systems convulsing from massive storm runoff. Wildflowers disappearing from Rocky Mountain slopes and polar bears from the Arctic. Leisure time gone, as people struggle to survive.
“Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States” is the “most up-to-date, authoritative, comprehensive” analysis ever done on how human-caused warming affects the United States, deadpans Obama “science” advisor John Holdren.
Actually, it’s the most flagrant attempted con-job and propaganda campaign in US history.
