The residents of California are about to become victims of what Weather Channel founder John Coleman has accurately called "the greatest scam in history". They will be paying higher energy bills to help carbon traders get richer.
In the 1990's the corrupt Enron company began paying scientists and purported environmental groups to support the outright lie that slight increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide could increase atmospheric temperatures. Enron also supported politicians who were willing to go along with this scheme. Enron's goal was to get governments to establish a system for trading what the company called "carbon credits".
Companies producing carbon dioxide have to pay for "carbon credits" to do so . These carbon credits can then be traded by speculators just like stocks and bonds. More on Enron and carbon trading later.
I've posted numerous articles on the global warming fraud over the last several years. I'm going to repost some of them to make it easier for readers to find them. Because of their age, some of the articles they link to may no longer be available on the web. I'm going to post them as is for now, but may rewrite some of them with new links later.
One fact many people don't understand about science is that science has long had an attraction for con artists. A few centuries ago "scientists" called "alchemists" would get wealthy nobles to finance their research by claiming to be working on a way to turn metals like lead into gold .
As a college undergraduate, I initially started studying math and physics before making the mistake of thinking I could help politicians find solutions to social problems by studying the social sciences. I didn't realize politicians weren't particularly interested in actually solving social problems. My physics course work included the study of light. Physics is the science that deals with energy such as heat and electromagnetic radiation or light.
The physics of climate is relatively simple. It isn't necessary to understand quantum physics to understand climate unless you want to study the peculiar characteristics of water molecules such as why ice(solid water) floats on liquid water. It's the complex interaction of various factors, including cycles like el Nino / la Nina, that makes climate complicated. The study of climate inspired development of the math/science field of chaos theory which applies to a variety of subjects including human behavior. Those of you who invest in the stock market might want to investigate applications of chaos theory.
My interest in human behavior includes human interaction with the physical environment. There are actions humans take that can impact climate, but production of carbon dioxide isn't one of those actions. For example, humans can cause desertification by eliminating trees. The draining of wetlands in Florida has increased the potential for freezing weather in the state. The increased danger of freezing weather potentially threatens the orange crop that plays a major role in Florida's economy.
The claim by global warming alarmists that slight changes in the amount of the very minor, but essential, atmospheric gas, carbon dioxide can significantly change temperature is absurd. CO2 comprises less than 0.04% of the atmosphere. The only change in CO2 that could impact temperature would be if CO2 levels dropped below the amount necessary to support plant life. Plants store solar energy in the form of the electron bonds holding complex carbon molecules together. This process reduces the amount of solar radiation converted to heat.
Those who claim CO2 causes warming by trapping infrared radiation (IR) ignore the fact that physicist R. W. Woods disproved the theory that "trapping" radiation causes heating in greenhouses or the atmosphere over a century ago.
My knowledge of human behavior helps me understand how otherwise intelligent individuals can support the nonsense that a minor gas like CO2 can control climate. Many people support the claim that CO2 causes warming because they are profiting from trading carbon credits or are being paid by carbon traders. Natural gas companies like the late Enron company can gain a competitive advantage over coal because coal has a higher carbon content than natural gas
Others have reverted to primitive religious beliefs. They want to believe that humans can "control" climate because they are scared by the idea that climate is beyond control. In effect, many of them believe that if unfavorable weather events it means they have offended the "weather gods". Global warming believers use the equivalent of the word "heretic" to describe those who disagree with them. Terms like "denier" and "contrarian" labels those who use the terms as childish. The terms brand those who use them as religious fanatics rather than scientists.
If what they call climate science is an example of what science is than science is greatly overrated.
Real science is one of the most powerful forces at mankind’s disposal. But don’t confuse science with bought and paid for pseudo-scientists...
Are you going to believe your own lying eyes that nothing has changed in the climate in the last forty years, or are you going to believe the “settled science”?
One of these days they’ll find a way to patent “Climate Change” and “Global Warmimg” but that wouldn’t make it any more legitimate.
NAH! the greatest scam in history is a Known citizen of Indonesia becoming President of the United States...
AND republicans are afraid to say a word.. murmur a squawk, utter peep...
But thats the not hardest thing to take...
Being proud to be a republican is though.. there are actually people not embarrassed to say they are a republican..
Hard to believe but it is true..
Has anyone produced actual evidence that Obama is or ever was a citizen of Indonesia? If so, I haven’t seen it, just inferences from school paperwork and such.
Check out solar cycle 24, and solar cycle 25 ( shows the world will get much colder so no global warming and so the news media renamed it climate change). The Sun determines climate on Earth not some stupid media C02. humans are co2 machines so you stupid liberals should off yourselves for mother Earth.
An Algore wetdream.
He was adopted by that Sotero guy... what does that make him?..
probably Indonesia don't have a lot of paperwork with those things for children or maybe anybody..
His skank mother was a "bitch" so what does that make him?..
The boy has ridden the cusp of legality all his life..
He has always been quasi legal.. he may even be "Franks" son... not Obama's..
Everything about that scissorbill is smoky and murky.. He is a puff of smoke.. that guy..
...VERY Interesting... he has no "papiers"..
Which would make both his parents native born citizens, destroying one of the arguments of those who think him ineligible for the office.
So the answer is there is no real evidence he is or was a citizen of Indonesia?
Very interesting nevertheless- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQyUKnCf0YY
