US Government’s Climate Con-Job

US Government’s Climate Con-Job

J. D. Longstreet


America’s Christian community is a bit stunned – and - somewhat overwhelmed with the attack on Nature’s God by those in our own government who vehemently explain that they are attacking Nature’s God in the Name of Nature “herself”(?). If this paragraph leaves you somewhat confused, welcome to the club!

The largest portion of American Christians is taught, from the cradle up, and from Genesis forward, (in the bible) that God created the Earth for man and man was charged with being a good steward of the planet. Man was given divine permission to use the planet, and use the bounty of the planet, but - to use it wisely.

For man to use the resources of Earth wisely, man had to wait eons, it seems to understand the earth, and the world around him, until he actually had the knowledge and the wherewithal to manage the earth as that “good steward” God had appointed.

We have not yet arrived at the optimum period in our stay on this planet when it will be possible to provide for our needs without drawing from the earths storehouses of bounty. So we continue to use the resources provided for us through Nature by Nature’s God. But we are close. The oil and coal is ours to use, as is the bounty of the sea, and game of the forest, and the seeds of the field – all ours - provided for our use by our God.

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!

Thank you!

US Government’s Climate Con-Job
Obama administration “report” on climate change is deceitful, scare-mongering, bogus science
By: Paul Driessen
Suppose a company doctored data, misrepresented study findings, replaced observations with computer simulations, and hired PR flacks to promote its new “wonder drug.” News stories, congressional hearings, and subpoenas would be in overdrive. Fines and jail sentences would follow. And rightly so.

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.
If it helps Congress enact cap-and-tax legislation, it will give activists, courts and bureaucrats control over virtually every aspect of our lives. It will enable them to confiscate hard-earned dollars, convert them to payoffs for activists and companies that get on the climate-crisis bandwagon, consign uncooperative companies and scientists to the ash heap of history, and conceal the exorbitant costs of restrictive energy policies – on families, industries, jobs and transportation – until long after the bill becomes law.
The bogus “report” conflates and confuses human activities and emissions with the powerful natural forces that have caused major and minor climate changes and weather anomalies since the dawn of time – from the Carboniferous Period to the Age of Dinosaurs, from the Big Ice Ages and interglacial periods to the Little Ice Age, Roman and Medieval Warm Periods, Dust Bowl and countless others. It relies on conjecture, conformist thinking and conspicuous elimination of contrary, skeptical, realist scientists and studies that do not support climate cataclysm conjecture and ideology.
The authors “largely ignored” critical comments to earlier drafts and made the final version “even more alarmist” than infamous UN “summaries” of global warming “crises,” says Joseph D’Aleo, first director of meteorology at the Weather Channel and former chairman of the American Meteorological Society’s Weather Analysis and Forecasting Committee. The report is simply “wrong on many of its claims” and marks “an embarrassing episode for the authors and NOAA,” D’Aleo concludes.
University of Colorado environmental studies professor Roger Pielke, Jr. says the report “misrepresents” his own work, makes claims that are not supported by citations provided, relies heavily on analyses that were never peer reviewed, ignores peer-reviewed studies that reach opposite conclusions from those proclaimed by the report, and cites analyses that do not support conclusions rendered.“I didn’t notice a single recognized hurricane expert in the list of authors,” says NOAA Hurricane Research Division scientist Stanley Goldenberg. The report relies heavily on surface temperature data from monitoring stations located next to parking lots and air conditioning exhaust ports – falsely skewing temperature records upward – other experts noted. It is lead-heavy on assumptions, assertions and speculation – hydrogen-light on evidence.
But the most egregious miscarriage of science in this agit-prop exercise is its near-total dependence on worst-case scenarios conjured up by computer models. That’s where it gets its litany of “Day After Tomorrow” Hollywood disasters.
These climate models have never been validated by actual observations, notes Professor Robert Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at Australia’s James Cook University. Indeed, Australia’s own climate modeling agency (CSIRO) stresses that climate change scenarios are based on computer models that “involve simplifications of [real world] processes that are not fully understood. Accordingly, no responsibility will be accepted … for the accuracy of forecasts inferred” from its reports.“Modeling results are interesting – but worthless for setting public policy,” says Carter. But that is exactly how they’re being used.
Sure, it’s conceivable that Antarctica could melt, and cause sea levels to rise 20 feet, as Al Gore and the government con-artists suggest. Greenhouse gases would merely have to increase average annual Antarctic temperatures from their current –50 degrees F to +40 degrees for a century or two, to melt 200,000 cubic miles of South Pole icecaps. A mere 90-degree swing.
That may be as likely as having the planet overrun by raptors and T-rexes cloned from DNA in fossilized mosquitoes. But it’s conceivable. And in the realm of global warming politics, that’s all that matters. As MIT atmospheric physicist Richard Lindzen observes, “global warming has developed so much momentum that it has a life of its own, quite removed from science.”
As one climate activist group put it: “The task … is not to persuade by rational argument.” It is “to work in a more shrewd and contemporary way, using subtle techniques of engagement. The ‘facts’ need to be treated as being so taken-for-granted that they need not be spoken.” The strategy is to treat “climate-friendly activity as a brand that can be sold. This is the route to mass behavior change.”This is the kind of science, transparency, honesty and accountability we have come to expect over “human-caused climate chaos.”
If the congressional, administration and activist conspirators behind this massive deceit were in the private sector – peddling bogus drugs, rather than bogus science – they’d quickly become convicts. Instead of jail time, though, they’ll probably get bonus checks.
