Green "Civil Disobedience" in D.C.

By Alan Caruba


1 Mar 09 - (Excerpts) On Monday, March 2nd, environmentalists will gather in Washington, D.C. for what they self-describe as the “biggest climate civil disobedience in U.S. history.”

The purpose of the Capitol Climate Action Coalition is to bring at least 2,500 people to Washington, D.C. for the purpose of protesting the Capitol Power Plant that uses coal to generate electricity for the Capitol Building. The lighting, heating, cooling, and all other uses of electricity depend on this plant.

The protest asserts that using coal for this purpose will contribute to “global warming.” Only there isn’t any global warming and coal is used to generate just over 50% of all the electricity the nation requires every day.

The Coalition says the plant is a symbol of “coal’s stranglehold on the environment and public health.” This is so absurd that only the brainwashed herds of people who still believe global warming is real would believe it.

If the weather reports are accurate, the protesters will be standing around in at least one foot of snow falling on Washington, D.C.

Since 1998, the weather satellites have recorded a steady cooling trend on Earth.

Dr. James Hansen, the man who in 1988 got the global warming ball rolling by testifying before a congressional committee that global warming was the greatest threat facing the Earth, actually participated in a video urging people to come protest. However, Dr. Hansen has been a government employee for decades, the head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. The Institute has become known for fudging the actual facts about climate trends, having to retract its statements.

Dr. Hansen recently wrote to the heads of England, Germany and other nations demanding that they shut down all their coal-fired plants. There is something profoundly unethical, if not completely nutty, about Dr. Hansen’s activities and he should be fired.

It is doubtful he will be because President Obama is on record as being opposed to coal-fired plants and doesn’t want any more of them built to meet the demand for more electricity as the population of the nation continues to grow.

While the nation’s economy continues to crater, the environmentalists are busy trying to divert everyone’s attention by raising their cries about global warming. You can be sure this will be big news so far as the mainstream media is concerned. It will get wide coverage.

The second annual International Conference on Climate Change to be held in New York next week, March 8-10 is not likely to get media attention other than to ridicule a gathering of more than 500 of the world’s leading climatologists and meteorologists, the president of the Czech Republic, a former U.S. astronaut, and others who will offer scientific papers and presentations that demonstrate that global warming is a hoax.

The D.C. protest will include actress Daryl Hannah and Grammy winner Kathy Mattea as part of the group that will speak out against the most abundant source of energy America possesses.

This protest is part of an effort to systematically destroy America by denying it the electricity in needs to exist. Meanwhile, Congress refuses to allow any exploration and drilling for America’s oil and is putting off limits millions of acres of land that potentially is home to vast amounts of coal and oil that will continue to be denied to Americans.

You don’t have to be paranoid or a conspiracy freak to believe that the enemy is inside the gates.
