The Democrats want to control you. Their two most popular ways to control you are based upon myths.
Their first big myth is your gun causes irrational gun deaths, especially the mass killings in our schools. Since you are guilty, their reasoning goes, you must turn over your guns to the government agents who have guns. Only very stupid people fall for this government (mostly Democratic) charade.
The second big myth, of course, is your use of carbon fuels causes all kinds of climate change problems. Since you are guilty, their reasoning goes, you and your nation must reduce your use of carbon fuels and pay an “Al Gore” tax on the carbon fuel you use. Only very stupid people fall for this government (mostly Democratic) charade. [Read more…]
Lest you think the climate alarmist leaders focus on true science, here is a leaked 2010 email thread where the late Steven Schneider, Paul Ehrlich and others reveal what they think of those who do not follow their global warming religion. – Ed

(Under the date of October 10, 1922, the American consul at Bergen, Norway, submitted the following report to the State Department, Washington, D.C.)
The Arctic seems to be warming up. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers who sail the seas about Spitzbergen and the eastern Arctic, all point to a radical change in climatic conditions, and hitherto unheard-of high temperatures in that part of the earth’s surface.
In August, 1922, the Norwegian Department of Commerce sent an expedition to Spetzbergen and Bear Island under the leadership of Dr. Adolf Hoel, lecturer on geology at the University of Christiania. Its purpose was to survey and chart the islands, take soundings of the adjacent waters, and make other oceanographic investigations. [Read more…]

Lisa Jackson, President Obama’s chief of the Environmental Protection Agency, resigned last week. For four years she led our nation down a regulatory path of economic destruction unmatched in the 40-year history of the EPA. New regulations from Ms. Jackson’s reign of terror impact power plants, industrial plants, refineries, and vehicles, as well as the cost of almost all goods and services. Unless her policies are rolled back, Americans will pay for decades with higher energy prices, job losses, and economic stagnation in exchange for negligible environmental benefits.
In January 2008 during his first presidential campaign, President Obama stated
“So if somebody wants to build a coal-fired plant they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”
