A previously defeated bill that would reduce emissions of that evil, life-giving gas that humans exhale and plants absorb, carbon dioxide, is set to return in January under an Obama administration hell-bent on passing legislation that would inflict the equivalent of a new great depression on America while creating a new infrastructure of “green brigades” and informants to regulate every aspect of our behavior.
“The US Senate will take up two sweeping global warming bills in January, in the latest sign that Barack Obama’s election could quickly reverse years of US footdragging on climate change,” reports AFP.
“The….legislation will direct the US Environmental Protection Agency to set up a cap-and-trade system to stem greenhouse gas emissions.”
Obama reiterated his endorsement for the bill on Tuesday during a speech in which he again called for an 80 per cent reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.

The only way this can be achieved of course is with a giant stealth tax not only on businesses, but on individuals, backed by the giant strong arm of tyrannical enforcement by hoards of “climate cops” sticking their noses into our private lives, as is already embryonically being metered out in Britain.
“The time to start is now,” said Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, vowing to step up to Obama’s challenge to combat climate change and create millions of “green jobs” in the reeling US economy.”
How many of these “green jobs” will be staffed by “green brigades” tasked with regulating and surveilling every aspect of your behavior to ensure your compliance with the state-mandated religion of phony environmentalism, while the state itself does everything to accelerate or ignore the real environmental problems like GM crop contamination, deforestation, genetic splicing, chemtrail spraying, cancer-causing cellphone pollution, as well as the plethora of crap being put in our water, food and vaccines like sodium fluoride, MSG, aspartame, mercury, pesticides, and rat poison?
All of these real problems are pushed aside by the all-mighty threat of “climate change,” despite the fact that the climate has always changed throughout eons of history, with no contribution by man.
How many of Obama’s promised “national civilian security force,” a cadre we are guaranteed will be as strong or stronger than the U.S. Army, will be assigned to spy on their neighbors for enviro-crimes and report them to the local green commissariat?
The cost to the U.S. economy if the bill is passed, as revealed by an Environmental Protection Agency investigation, would be $2.9 trillion, 6.9 percent shaved off the country’s GDP, a figure comparable to the Great Depression, along with millions of jobs lost.
And all for what? A reduction of carbon emissions by 80 per cent will result in a maximum temperature decrease of about 0.10 to 0.20 degrees Celsius, underscoring the fact that natural climate change has throughout history eclipsed any effect man can have on temperature variations.
And why the hell should we want to lower temperatures anyway? Here in Britain we had our first October snow since the 1930’s as the country again braces itself for Arctic temperatures this weekend while top scientists warn of a new ice age within 10 years.
Arctic sea ice has expanded 30 per cent, an area the size of Germany, since last summer, Alaskan glaciers have grown for the first time in 250 years, while record low temperatures have hit parts of America across the country.
Meanwhile, climate scientists allied with the IPCC were caught citing fake data to make the case that global warming is accelerating. NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), run by Al Gore’s chief scientific ally, Dr James Hansen, announced that last month was the hottest October on record. They later had to admit their “error” after it was revealed that they had used temperature records from September, a naturally hotter month, and merely passed them off as representing October temperatures.
Global warming fearmongers like the World Wildlife Fund are having to resort to deception as a clear trend of global cooling unfolds. In a recent report, the WWF cited shrinking Arctic ice coverage to suggest climate change is “faster and more extreme” than first thought, while failing to acknowledge that Arctic sea ice expanded over an area bigger than the size of Germany during the year of 2008.
Without question, developing alternative energy methods and encouraging the use of solar and wind power for means of self-sufficiency and reducing dependency on oil and fossil fuels is a fantastic notion and should be widely supported. But this isn’t about helping the environment, it’s about exploiting people’s legitimate concern for the planet by diverting their attention and getting them to enthusiasticallty partake in their own enslavement while mandating their fellow citizens do the same.
Welcome to another dose of the “change you can believe in,” trillions more of taxpayer’s money thrown at a scam that has nothing to do with saving the environment and everything to do with raping the middle class and the poor while erecting a gargantuan police state system of informants and enforcement to carry out the elite’s new feudalist agenda.
