Skip to comments.Question to Obama: Will a Carbon Tax Stop the Next Big Freeze?

The Dems have told the big lie on climate change so many times they actually believe the lie. Period! Last November, Obama signed an Executive Order in which he declared:
"The impacts of climate change -- including an increase in prolonged periods of excessively high temperatures, more heavy downpours, an increase in wildfires, more severe droughts, permafrost thawing, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise -- are already affecting communities, natural resources, ecosystems, economies, and public health across the Nation.Just one problem, none of that is true.
2013 was the year which saw the fewest days with temps of 100 degrees or above in more than 100 years. It was the year in which there were more record cold temperatures than record high temps. That hasn't happened since 1993. Increase in wildfires? No again. Same with tornadoes, hurricanes and all the rest. [Note: the statistics cited are from U.S. government reports. Not Fox News. Not Rush Limbaugh]
But these inconvenient facts won't stop Obama and the global warming alarmists who insist that the only way to save the planet is to raise taxes on energy (though they never really explain how this would work). Obama's media allies are already laying the groundwork for global warming alarmism to be the centerpiece of Obama's agenda for the remaining three years of his last term in office. And if Obama and fellow alarmists have to lie about the dangers of climate change to get people's attention they have lots of practice. PERIOD!
The Big Freeze
In testimony before a congressional committee last December, John R. Christy, a prominent climate scientist presented the following chart. It shows the various climate models on which global warming is based. These models assume that CO2 is the primary driver for global temperature. Underneath the models projections for temperature increase are the actual observations:
There are real problems of poverty, disease and hunger gripping the world that are going largely ignored because of the time and resources devoted to a problem that does not exist. There is a greater danger of a planetary disaster due to super volcano eruptions in Iceland than there is from global warming now or in the future. But I guess there's not enough money to be made playing on those fears for the global warming crowd to pay attention.
On a closing note, an expedition of environmental activists traveled to the Antarctic a few weeks ago hoping to find signs of climate change. They found the signs all right, just not the ones they wanted. Even in Antarctic summer the ship they were on become locked in ice and three icebreakers have been called in to rescue them and some of those ships have been frozen in as well. The irony of people claiming the ice is disappearing needing three icebreakers for a rescue seems lost on them.
North or south there is ice everywhere. The very opposite of what the global warming crowd predicted for years. But that won't stop them from repeating the big lie. There is just too much money at stake to give up. Period!
No, but it may make sure some people freeze to death in the next Big freeze because they can't afford to heat their houses
And the perfect Progressive Solution to that problem is Energy Subsidies for the poor....
Already has been done: Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).
