Blast from the past. 2010:
Barry and his party would have us believe they can tax coal power plants out of business and we’ll all get by on wind and solar power. Uh, huh. Except for people in the snow belt:
“Minnesota invested itself in alternative energy sources years ago, and so the revelation that the state spent $3.3 million on eleven wind turbines hardly qualifies as news. However, the fact that they don’t work in cold weather does.”
Well, the state can always sue the manufacturer. Hee. And Minnesotans can be thankful they still have coal-power electricity to keep them warm. So far, anyhow.
Via Hot Air.
As you can see here, the climate legislation Barry & the Dems are trying to pass, which will significantly raise all of our electric and gasoline bills, creating further unemployment and economic problems, will have zero effect on worldwide carbon emissions.
Never mind the paltry twelve trees that are the main evidence behind the global warming fraud, the EPA has now declared carbon to be a dangerous pollutant. Ready for your electrical bill to hit the stratosphere? Think Team Barry really wants to improve the economy? Think again.
The latest global warming scare? The warming oceans (that aren’t, actually, warming) could cause the Earth’s normal tilt of 23.5 degrees from the vertical to increase. Then what? They don’t say. But when it comes to Pap & Tax (otherwise known as Cap & Trade) the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is lobbying for a wait-a-minute debate on what could cause our drift into a Third World economy.
Via Watts Up With That.
UPDATE: Good analysis of the fraud by Norman Rogers, a former Zero Population Growth activist who remembers that exaggeration and scare stories produced membership in ZPG far better than facts.
MORE: Peter D. Ward and Donald Brownlee explain, in their 2002 book The Life and Death of Planet Earth, what an increased tilt might mean: "…if we tilted too much, or if the tilt shifted, our climate would become more extreme or be thrown into chaos. This may have happened to Mars, in fact, allowing that planet to lose its oceans."
The next time you hear Democrats assert that they must stop the use of coal to make electricity because the North Pole is melting from warming sea water, remember this planned assessment of a month ago, and its finding this week. The north polar ice is a hundred percent thicker than expected. Instead of the two meters anticipated, it is four meters thick. Twelve feet, y’all. What warming sea water?
