So, Obama ran on a plank of bringing science back to the White House. An idea I believe in. Laws and policy should be based on fact and logic, not opinion and being PC.
Which is odd… Because Obama’s current attempt to classify CO2 (carbon dioxide) as a pollutant that must be controlled to reverse global warming is NOT based on science, but on speculation, and very BAD reports from the UN.
So let’s get this straight: There are currently 1700 climatologists that state global warming being caused mostly by man is NOT true. Which is more than double the total that claim it IS.
CO2 is about 0.038% of the atmosphere. Of which man contributes 3 percent. So CO2 is LESS than 1 percent of the air we breath, and man makes 3 percent of that tiny number….
The report the EPA used to classify CO2 as a “pollutant” was created by the UN. The report the UN created was based not on science, but on opinion. When the report was being made the UN told it’s writers to IGNORE recent evidence that showed CO2 was not the problem it was thought to be and basically told them what the conclusion should be.
When informed by scientists that the report was faulty, our government told them to “shut up”, that the administration has decided it’s going with CO2 being a pollutant. After all, let’s not let FACT get in the way of sweeping government control…
Obama, and EVERYONE that voted for the current Cap and Tax bill are trying to pass something that other countries have already tried.
Pelosi calls this a JOBS bill? Something like this bill cost Spain 2.2 jobs for every “green” job created… I guess negative jobs, still means jobs huh?
And Obama doesn’t want tariffs involved with this bill? So I make something in America, and it costs me an energy tax to create it, or I can do the same in China, with cheaper labor, and no energy tax… Hmmm…… WHERE will I be making my products?
And this IS a tax. There’s no other way to say it. I LOVE that it’s supporters claim that AFTER tax rebates the average household will only pay 150 more a year on energy costs….
So WHERE is that “tax rebate” coming from? I thought I and other citizens of this country pay taxes, which means the rebate is coming from my pocket anyways.
And seeing as the government is hardly ever right about their “cost” forcasts I doubt they are anywhere near the true cost of this bill.
I hope the senate has the stones to say no to this thing.
