  • New Hampshire smacks down cap and trade

    The Daily Caller ^ | 02/23/11 | Phil Kerpen
    The New Hampshire House of Representatives today voted overwhelmingly — 246 to 104 — for New Hampshire to become the first state to repeal an up-and-running global warming cap-and-trade energy tax system. The state senate is expected to follow suit with a similarly veto-proof repeal. The move has major implications both in the region and nationally. Since 2008, New Hampshire has been one of the 10 members of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a power plant-only cap-and-trade system that holds quarterly auctions requiring electric utilities to buy carbon dioxide permits. The cost of those permits is buried in the...

    OAKLAND, CA — A tough political atmosphere in which Congress backed away from comprehensive clean energy and climate change legislation may have been the nail in the coffin for one of the voluntary carbon market's early pioneers.The Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) will discontinue its voluntary greenhouse gas cap-and-trade program next month, according to Intercontinental Exchange Inc., its parent company. In its place, CCX will launch a new registry program for 2011 and 2012 carbon offsets.The development marks a stark contrast from two years ago when many considered climate change legislation in the U.S. to be inevitable."Fundamentally with any program that...

    During the debate on CNN between Republican Christine O’Donnell and Democrat Chris Coons who are the candidates for the U.S. Senate from Delaware, Chris Coons was asked a direct question. Ms. O’Donnell asked Mr. Coons if there would be any direct benefit from cap-and-trade for the company that he formerly worked for, a company whose current CEO is Chris Coons’ father in-law and which Chris Coons owns stock in. The company, W.L. Gore, also known as Gore-Tex is involved in making air filtration filters for natural gas turbines and also a material used in fuel cells. It is clear that...

    A headline on Thursday screamed: “Democrats pull plug on climate bill.” Don’t believe it. It’s a diversionary tactic. The Obama administration and Democratic congressional leadership, seeing their window for shoving the country to the hard left closing quickly, are intent on making one last major push for cap-and-trade. It starts with their “spill-response bill” or “energy bill,” but it’s really about cap-and-trade. The irony is that the political genius of cap-and-trade was supposed to be that it hides a tax hike from the American people.

    The cap-and-trade bill that the House passed last summer aims to force Americans to reduce those dreaded carbon emissions by 83 percent in less than four decades -- to the same per-capita level as 1867. Yet, even under the Al Gore-approved climate-science models, the bill would do nothing to stop global warming. The bill is 1,000-plus pages of rules, regulations, handouts, subsidies and whatever else House leaders deemed necessary. Not one of the 435 members read the whole monstrosity -- because the leadership dropped 300 new pages on their desks the night before they voted. Yet the central point is...

    President Obama's attempt to use the oil spill in the Gulf to push for cap & trade legislation doesn't seem to be working. According to one sponsor of the energy, bill the inclusion of the job killing, energy cost raising scheme is keeping the legislation far below the 60 vote threshold needed for it to pass in the Senate. But that won't stop either of them from following the 'never let a crisis go to waste' philosophy.

    In a speech that should have been given eight weeks ago the President spent more time covering his backside than showing that he is in command of the problem. Instead, taking the advice of Rahm Emanuel “to never let a crisis go to waste,” he decided to pimp his environmental legislation rather than show that he has his focus on the problem at hand. The president flatly turned down assistance from the Dutch government that could remove up to 20 million tons of oil and sludge PER DAY. Eight weeks later the administration has finally capitulated and accepted the help....

According to a post at Raw Story:Goldman Sachs sold 4,680,822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010. Goldman’s sales were the largest of any firm during that time. Goldman would have pocketed slightly more than $266 million if their holdings were sold at the average price of BP’s stock during the quarter. If Goldman had sold these shares today, their investment would have lost 36 percent its value, or $96 million. The share sales represented 44 percent of Goldman’s holdings...

This is the largest lead since President Obama was inaugurated. The first poll after the inauguration had the Democratic party with a 7% lead meaning that there has been a 17% trade off in only 14 months.

    Last month the EPA determined that greenhouse gases are a threat to human health, meaning that the agency is now required by the Clean Air Act to regulate such pollutants. And with no-one sure when the Senate will take up the cap-and-trade bill, EPA regulation has become a do-or-die issue for both camps in the climate fight. Advocates of climate action see it as the lone tool—albeit an imperfect one—that the Obama administration can use to implement significant emissions reductions in the absence of legislation. Foes, meanwhile, decry it as a back-door maneuver that must be stopped at all costs....

    With 20,000 delegates, advocates and journalists jetting to Copenhagen for planet Earth’s last chance, the carbon footprint of the global-warming summit will be the only impressive consequence of the climate change meeting. Its organizers had hoped it would produce binding caps on emissions, global taxation to redistribute trillions of dollars and micromanagement of everyone’s choices. China, nimble at the politics of pretending that is characteristic of climate-change theater, promises only to reduce its “carbon intensity” — carbon emissions per unit of production. So China’s emissions will rise.

It is likely to be largely ice-free during the warmer months within a decade, the experts added. Veteran polar explorer Hadow and two other Britons went out on the Arctic ice cap for 73 days during the northern spring, taking more than 6,000 measurements and observations of the sea ice. The raw data they collected from March to May has been analysed, producing some stark...

    1 Temperatures have been cooling since 2002, even as carbon dioxide has continued to rise. 2 Carbon dioxide is a trace gas and by itself will produce little warming. Also, as CO2 increases, the incremental warming is less, as the effect is logarithmic so the more CO2, the less warming it produces. 3 CO2 has been totally uncorrelated with temperature over the last decade, and significantly negative since 2002. 4 CO2 is not a pollutant, but a naturally occurring gas. Together with chlorophyll and sunlight, it is an essential ingredient in photosynthesis and is, accordingly, plant food. 5 Reconstruction of...

    Proposed federal legislation aimed at curbing global warming would drastically reduce domestic fuel production, according to a new study commissioned by the oil industry as part of its campaign to oppose new restrictions. The report's findings, which are expected to be released Monday, project that by 2030, U.S. refining production could drop 17% from today's levels if the climate bill is passed as currently proposed. The drop would have to be made up by foreign imports, the study says, meaning the U.S. could end up relying on other countries for 19.4% of its refined fuel -- nearly twice the amount...

    Remember that declaration of Nancy Pelosi at the end of the Cap and Trade debate in the house? She said the bill is about Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.

  • New Study Shows How Government Dollars Perpetuate The Global Warming Hoax

    08/03/2009 10:13:21 AM PDT · by Shellybenoit · 2 replies · 398+ views
    Sometimes money creates a "self fulfilling prophecy," especially government money. Researchers know that if they come up with the right kind of information the grants will roll over from year to year. Such has been the case with the global warming hoax. Government dollars have encouraged scientists to get the right data, instead of getting the data right. That's one of the reasons we continue to find mistakes in the data predicting a man-made global warming crisis. In fact new study published by Science and Public Policy shows that: * The US government has provided over $79 billion since 1989...

    Apparently, the Democrats still haven't learned that the rich are really the "Golden Geese" that we need in order to sustain our standard of living and create new jobs; not the broad evil that they are portrayed to be.

    The more we conservatives provide truth and systematically refute the liberal 'cures' for our supposed ills, the more hysterically entrenched the liberals/progressives become in perpetuating and defending their lies. The latest example is Ma'am Barbara Boxer, distinguished 'Senator' from the People's Republik of Kalifornia.

    The cap and trade national energy tax is in trouble in the Senate after barely squeaking through the House last week.  The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee yesterday cancelled all legislative hearings and will not hold a committee markup on the massive energy tax before the August recess.  Although Democrats have claimed they’ve put off this priority agenda item due to a busy work schedule, Republican staff sources in the Senate tell HUMAN EVENTS the Democrats do not yet have the votes to pass the bill. Reminiscent of 1993 when House Democrats were forced to vote on Al Gore’s...
