15 Jun 10 - (Excerpts) - Here’s what we know about “global warming.” There isn’t any. The only warming that has occurred has been the entirely natural warming that occurred when the Little Ice Age ended around 1850.

By contrast, the Earth has been cooling for the past decade. Warming and cooling cycles are well known to climatologists who have not sold their souls to the global warming fraud. Thousands of those who have not have been signing petitions to protest the lies about global warming, now called “climate change.” The Earth is 4.5 billion years old. Its climate has always been in a state of change, including a number of well-known ice ages.

What is also known is that carbon dioxide (C02) plays no role in global warming or climate change.

Without CO2 there would be no life on Earth. All vegetation depends on it. More C02 would be extremely beneficial, increasing crop yields, aiding the growth of forests.

The claims of global warming have been entirely based on computer models. Those justifying drastic action to reduce CO2 emissions have been proven to have been deliberately false, the handiwork of a handful of “scientists” who have received millions in research grants. Every report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has been filled with lies.

Despite this, on June 10 the U.S. Senate, by a party line vote of 53-47, defeated a resolution by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL). The resolution would have restricted the Environmental Protection Agency’s effort, comparable to the Cap-and-Tax bill, to regulate CO2 on the grounds that it was a “pollutant” that poses a danger to human health and life.

The effort to require limits on greenhouse gas emissions, primarily CO2, would affect all industry and business activity in America, making it increasingly costly, less competitive, and generating a financial scheme based on the sale and trade of “carbon credits” that has already enriched people like Al Gore.

At the same time, many European nations that signed the UN Kyoto Protocol requiring such limitations have learned that it has harmed their economies without any benefits whatever.

President Obama hailed the vote saying it moved the nation “toward (a) clean energy economy, but such an economy ignores the fact that America and all other nations are dependent on the use of oil, natural gas, and coal. So-called clean energy provides barely three percent or less of all the electricity generated in America. It can never replace these established sources of energy.

Energy policy in America must of necessity be determined by a Congress responsive to the voters, not by faceless bureaucrats with an environmental agenda whose purpose is to destroy the nation’s economy. The transfer of power from the legislative branch to the executive is sinister and a threat to the future of the nation.

A Congress that cared about America would disband the Environmental Protection Agency as an enemy of progress and growth.

Instead, it continues to heedlessly seek to give it control of the nation’s future and with it our lives.
