Control: The House and Senate climate bills contain a provision giving the president extraordinary powers in the event of a "climate emergency." As chief of staff Rahm Emanuel says, a crisis is a terrible thing to waste.
If you thought the House health care bill that nobody read has hidden passages that threaten our freedoms and liberty, take a peak at the "trigger" placed in the byzantine innards of both the House-passed Waxman-Markey bill and the Kerry-Boxer bill just passed by Democrats out of Sen. Barbara Boxer's Environment and Public Works Committee.
As Nick Loris of the Heritage Foundation points out, the Kerry-Boxer bill requires the declaration of a "climate emergency" if the concentration of carbon dioxide and other declared greenhouse gases in the atmosphere exceeds 450 parts per million (ppm). It was at about 286 ppm before the Industrial Revolution and now sits at around 368 ppm.
That figure was picked out of a hat because the warm-mongers believe that's the level at which the polar ice caps will disappear, boats can be moored on the Statue of Liberty's torch and dead polar bears will wash up on the beaches of Malibu.
The Senate version includes a section that gives the president authority, under this declared "climate emergency," to "direct all Federal agencies to use existing statutory authority to take appropriate actions ... to address shortfalls" in achieving greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions.

There might be a Civil War, but there will be no dictatorship.
Civil war within a year.
I don’t know about global temperatures, but temps will rise quickly and to unbelievable highs in the US if such bills pass.

The illegal immigrants have already learned that the law means nothing .... is a joke. Our bloated, corrupt federal government is a joke. I believe it has come to the point that the federal government, in their arrogant defiance of the constitution and states rights, and their demonstrated inability or refusal to enforce existing law, are one more unenforceable law away from becomming a laughable, pathetic late night skit. If you watch C-Span, as I do, you surely must suspect that the federal government is inept, lazy, and corrupt.

Im going to agree with the soon arriving Civil War comment.. i Just hope that our side isnt a small minority like I think it is. Too many people in this country have no idea what is going on. I mention this stuff at work sometimes and people are totally clueless, I mean they have never heard of a single thing I am talking about.
Oh, they’ll be feeling the pain soon enough if this monstrosity goes through. Then everyone will become a criminal/revolutionary if they merely want to keep body and soul together.
Future historians (if there are any) will consider our current culture to be a bad joke.
We only need 3%. Seriously...
It’s already here.
They are trying. I’ll give them that much.
“Civil war within a year.”
And then, no internet.
Freedom isn’t free and all that.
“people are totally clueless, I mean they have never heard of a single thing I am talking about.”
They say things like “I never heard that on CNN!”
