I think they know -- this is a dishonest scheme to redistribute wealth and take money from the US.
That is just an introductory article...see the skeptics handbook ...available at the website.
I think a lot of people in the poor countries don’t believe in global warming theory and they’re just using it as a tactic to get money out of the rich countries. But most US liberals who support cap & trade seem to actually believe in the theory or at least believe in the cause even though they know nothing about the scientific theory of global warming. A lot of American liberals remind me of bratty kids who think they know more than the adults (even though they don’t) and when these brats don’t get what they want they start lying, cheating, and distorting the truth in an attempt to get their agenda implemented. That’s what they’re doing right now with the global warming issue. In fact, a lot of adult liberals probably were the bratty kids I remember from grade school.
This administration doesn’t understand that a “scientific consensus” in support of man-made global warming doesn’t mean anything, because very few scientists have much detailed understanding of climate science and even “climate experts” don’t understand ALL of the hundreds of factors that affect the earth’s climate. When you look at scientific papers on global warming, they only analyze a small number of the many factors affecting climate. The computerized climate models built by the UN are filled with hundreds of equations and thousands of lines of computer code which can (and I’m sure do) contain a few bad assumptions that invalidate all of the output of these models. A simulation model has to be near-perfect to be worth anything and I strongly doubt that the UN’s models are near-perfect. Global warming theory is easily 20 times more complex than anything I’ve ever looked at in science and the supporters of this theory are grossly understating the complexity of this science and grossly overstating the level of confidence that they should have in the output of their climate forecasting models.
As I wrote yesterday, if cap & tax is implement by this congress it will be a train wreck for the US economy and a political disaster for the democrats.
