Green groups open 'climate war room'
Politico ^ | 9/21/2009 | MIKE ALLEN & JIM VANDEHEI

Posted on 09/21/2009 1:20:43 PM PDT by SeattleBruce

The cap-and-trade movement, spooked by the pounding health care reform took over the August break, is scrambling to persuade nervous Democrats they won’t suffer politically for taking another tough vote this year.

“When you get your butt kicked, like we did [after the House energy vote], it focuses the mind,” said Steve Cochran, director of the Environmental Defense Fund’s National Climate Campaign. “We found out that this is not something to hide from but something to lean on — even in places where coal is king and Blue Dogs were perceived to be running for cover.”

Climate bill supporters say they have spent the summer building precisely the kind of grass-roots network that health care didn’t have, with grass-roots operations in more than 20 states.

A “climate war room” — funded by more than 60 labor, business, faith, agriculture and environmental groups — has been set up to coordinate ad dollars and communications.

All that anger might mitigate the current global cooling.

Maybe that’s the plan...?

Tax-exempt "charitable" foundations belonging to the misbegotten heirs of industrial wealth are using environmental regulation to control access to resources for fun and profit as a way to stay on top.

Anybody who wants to truly understand the great game in energy would do well to read this article.

I vote putting the “Green War Room” someplace they would be comfortable this coming winter, like Bismarck ND.

I sent a letter to my local paper that suggests that 2010 is perhaps time for our Congressman, who voted for Waxman-Markey, to go even though he is nominally a conservative Democrat who earns consistent “A” ratings from the NRA. The letter says in part that REAL Democrats do not destroy working people’s jobs to enrich corporate special interests (U.S. Climate Action Partnerships) and Spanish stockholders, noting that Barry used our tax dollars to buy wind turbines from Iberdrola in Spain.

‘Faith’ groups???
++++++++++

Right, the leftist version of the ‘faith based initiative’. Same denom groups that support abortion and gay-lesbian-bisexual-transgender (so called GLBT - Gilbert)...even though they certainly can’t support it Biblically (not that that matters).

To these bozos, the Bible, despite the warnings in Revelation [Revelation 22:18
“I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book”] is a living document...like the libs feel about the Consitution also.

Grassroots my butt. Who’s funding this jerks? All they want to do for the climate is tax everyone and everything. Why don’t they propose solutions for energy efficient machines, find ways to bring the 2nd world on line with efficient devices from the start, etc. No, they just want to destroy Western civilization, not solve any problems.

"Thus, their leadership rushed this bill through the House, repeating the mantra that cap and trade legislation will cost the average American no more than the cost of a single postage stamp per day-"

In the meantime Obama proposed raising the cost of a single postage stamp to $5. "Hey, the American people shouldn't have a problem with this," Obama said. "The new cost of a postage stamp will be no more than the additional cost in energy that results from the cap and trade laws."

Churches involved in this political activity should lose their tax exemption, pronto -- it has been done to conservative clergy, and MUST be done to the liberal social clubs that call themselves churches.

"Who's funding these jerks?"

Follow the money. Goldman Sachs is the priority investor in the exchange that will be in charge of carbon credit trading under the Cap and Trade system. And guess what state that will be located in......drum roll please.........Illinois. And guess who was one of the Top 10 biggest campaign contributors to Obama's run for the whitehouse.......drum roll please......Goldman Sachs. And guess what state our current president is from........drum roll please........Illinois.

The so-called environmental movement is the closest thing we have to a neo-Nazi Teutonic cult, from its numerous calls to eradicate all of humanity to threats to shoot boys who bird hunt.

And I can say with assurance that people who support these eco-fascists are some of the most vapid elemental cretins who have ever walked the earth.

These people are delusional and live inside of a bubble.
Do they not realize that even the people they pretend to help, the poor and minorities, will get devastated by cap and trade? Especially those living in Midwest states. This is good news because they are overreaching and their true agenda is being shown.

I doubt they will ever come back, even with this silly little “war room” idea.
