Democrats Release Massive Climate Bill
Global Warming.Org ^ | 03/31/09 | William Yeatman

Posted on 03/31/2009 3:46:44 PM PDT by Bearshouse

Representatives Henry Waxman (D-California) and Edward Markey (D-Massachusetts) today unveiled the Clean Energy and Security Act, a massive bill that incorporates virtually every lame-brained global warming policy ever considered by Congress (and then some).


TOPICS: Government
KEYWORDS: 1partyrule; globalwarming; legislation; taxes
The bill is linked beneath this short article. Also linked is the bill summary. The following is the last 2 paragraphs of the summary

Adapting to Global Warming. The draft establishes an interagency council to ensure an integrated federal response to the effects of global warming. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is directed to conduct vulnerability assessments and establish a National Climate Service. Each federal agency is directed to prepare an adaptation plan, review climate impacts on matters within its jurisdiction, and develop plans for addressing those impacts. The draft establishes a climate change adaptation fund to provide federal support for state, local, and tribal adaptation projects and a natural resources climate change adaptation panel to coordinate interagency actions on natural resources adaptation. The draft also requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to promulgate a national strategy for adapting to the public health effects of climate change.

To address international adaptation issues, the draft creates an International Climate Change Adaptation Program within USAID to provide U.S. assistance to the most vulnerable developing countries for adaptation to climate change.

We will not be able to heat our homes, transport food and other goods, or survive a winter like we had this year in the North. This is madness.

Just the first 25 pages is a nightmare.

This, by itself, will end American prosperity.

The Democrats are insane....

Have you noticed lately, all the new legislative proposals have been masked with bizarre, Orwellian titles?

Well if they used up to date observed date, Gorebal warming ended 7 years ago. There is no “hot spot”. World oceans have cooled. The water vapor in atmosphere has not increased. There has been no increase in “heat trapping” clouds. There is no “heat in the pipe line”.
The short of it, CO2 does not drive the climate.
But, CO2 Cap and Trade will kills.

Unfortunately, we all understand that this has nothing to do with global warming, or cooling or change. It is all about destroying our republic.

1. Climate change is, in truth, a constant, as it always has been.

2. The descriptive antecedent for what is now termed "climate change", so called "Global Warming" is a scientific fraud, attested to by thousands of climatologists, yet still promoted for the purpose of income and resource redistribution under international authority.

3. The United States Congress has herein acted to avail itself of a political opportunity by which it might expand its reach and authority under color of both US and international law, the former of which is merely gratuitous and factually unsupportable, and the latter, unconstitutional and in violation of existing treaties.

4. I am a citizen of the United States who refuses to comply with laws drafted in this manner and for these purposes. If any "government" that purports to act in my name wishes to appropriate my income for such purposes, it will need to take it by force.

5.

OUr government is going to do whatever it wants. It doesn't matter if it needs to be done. It doesn't matter if the people don't want it. It doesn't matter if it is economically unfeasible.

We have fought against the myth of AGW. Dissenting voices are starting to be heard. More people are onto this scheme. But for what purpose? Does it matter at all?

At some point, rolling over for these fascists is going to get old and the steamroller these commies are setting in motion is going to get irrevoccably out of control, then genuine desperation to save what's left of this country and our liberty might set in.

Is it time yet, Claire...?

More like drop it in his nose. Waxman is the only man I know who can sneeze and blow his hairpiece off.
