Obama-Gore Deceit on Cap and Trade
(Control and Tax)

By Dr. Tim Ball 

4 May 09 –  “Obama presents Cap and Trade as essential to stopping global warming by reducing atmospheric CO2. It won’t because it allows people to produce the same amount or more by buying the privilege and passing the cost to the consumer. It also requires ignoring the scientific evidence that CO2 is not causing warming.

“Where better to provide an uncontested, controlled, and manipulated forum to push a climate related issue than the House Energy and Commerce Committee, whose chair Henry Waxman had promised a Cap and Trade bill by Memorial Day.

“Waxman is completely ignorant of climate science. Consider his asinine statement on the Tavis Smiley NPR program that, “We’re seeing the reality of a lot of the North Pole starting to evaporate, and we could get to a tipping point. Because if it evaporates to a certain point - they have lanes now where ships can go that couldn’t ever sail through before. And if it gets to a point where it evaporates too much, there’s a lot of tundra that’s being held down by that ice cap.” This is ignorance that makes you realize he can’t understand any of the material presented to his committee.

Barefaced display of power, arrogance, ignorance and fear

“Obama couldn’t block debate or prevent balance before a public hearing on something as critical as climate and energy policy, but that doesn’t bother Waxman and the Democrats. They used Al “the science is settled” Gore to show how the climate science demanded the action.  They stifled debate because he was the only person allowed to present on the climatic justification for Cap and Trade. In a barefaced display of power, arrogance, ignorance and fear the Democrats blocked the appearance of Lord Monckton as requested by the Republicans.

Monckton eminently suited to counteract Gore’s scientific rubbish

“Monckton, a cabinet member and science advisor in Margaret Thatcher’s government was eminently suited to counteract Gore’s scientific rubbish. Author of a devastating critique of Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” his previous challenge for a debate had been turned aside. He has effectively shown Gore’s ignorance of the science and misuse of the facts.

“Of course, Gore has consistently avoided debate and controlled question opportunities. In March, 2009 he was scheduled to appear with Czech President Vaclav Klaus at the Wall Street Journal’s ECOnomics Conference in California. According to Washington Times reporter Greg Pierce, when Gore discovered he would likely have to debate Klaus, he changed his schedule, appeared the day before and was gone by the time Klaus arrived. Klaus said he came specifically to have an exchange with Gore about global warming and didn’t understand his reluctance to engage with others.

Cunningly crafted piece of political propaganda

“Unfortunately, the facts he (Gore) presents are incorrect or speculative. One statement is particularly galling and false. “Carbon dioxide pollution is changing the very chemistry of our ocean.” Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant and has changed the chemistry of the oceans for billions of years. He made no mention of the decline in global temperatures since 2000 while CO2 levels increased. His presentation was a cunningly crafted piece of political propaganda but again this is no surprise.

“One week before Gore received the Nobel Prize, a British judge ruled on his movie “An Inconvenient Truth”… (citing) major scientific errors and ordered the UK government to provide warnings for students viewing the movie in the classroom. A similar warning is necessary for all Gore presentations. But just to prove he is not about science or facts he resorted to personal attacks by comparing those who question his views to Bernie Madoff, when cornered by Representative Joe Barton at the Waxman hearings.

“Maybe long-time Washington political commentator Irving F Stone was right when he said; “Every government is run by liars and nothing they say should be believed.”
