Take Away Al Gore’s Oscar?

The Las Angeles Times is reporting that two Academy members, Roger L. Simon and Lionel Chetwynd, are asking the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to recall the Oscar that Al Gore won in 2007 for “An Inconvenient Truth”.  Of course, there is no way that such a demand will result in any action in the liberal world that is Hollywood, but it is humorous to see.  Simon and Chetwynd are Conservatives in Hollywood, something that is much more endangered than polar bears.

John Stewart on Climategate

Even John Stewart sees how Climategate exposes the fraud that is “Global Warming”. It’s a shame that Democrats such as Barbara Boxer are more interested in investigating the leak than what the leak exposed.

Climate Bill Mistake Could Cost Dems

As has hit the news, the Cap and Trade bill (also known as Waxman-Markey) passed the house 219-212.  Several representatives changed their minds on the bill allowin the narrow passage.  Some, such as Debbie Halverson (D-IL), were recorded saying they wouldn’t vote for the bill, but then proceeded to vote for it anyway.

It is simply amazing to see how many representatives actually voted for this bill (including 8 Republicans).  We are seeing more people step forward to question global warming (including someone in the EPA who was apparently silenced by Obama’s agenda). Despite this, the house wants to push forward with a bill that will undoubtedly hurt the economy and burden families with imbedded “green taxes”.  An MIT Study put the cost to each American family at $3900/year.

Not only is the link of carbon dioxide to global temperatures in question, our economy is struggling. We have unemployment rates approaching 10% and now we’re looking to pass a bill that will cost jobs and add burden to our families.  This leaves an opening for the Republicans to step up and be a voice of reason.  The question is, will they step up to the plate?

Unintended Consequences of Social Engineering

According to The Nation, the U.S. Government is going to give $8 billion this year to the nation’s 10 largest paper companies. The reason is an odd bit of green legislation that gives a 50 cent a gallon tax credit for using fuel mixtures that are a combination of taxable fuels (such as diesel) with alternative fuels.

The process of making paper involves placing wood into a chemical mixture to separate out the cellulose fibers. The leftover material forms what is termed black liquor and it is a good fuel due to its large carbon content. Paper companies use black liquor to produce the heat and energy they need to manufacture paper.

They discovered that they can take advantage of this tax credit by simply adding diesel fuel to the mixture. It is totally unnecessary and far from green, but it allows them to make a  handsome profit off of the tax credit. The  attempt to engineer green behaviour has actually resulted in the exact opposite. It is amazing how every year our tax code continues to get more complex yet continues to get less and less effective.

Scientists Claim Earth Climate Change is Natural

RWNJ Photo from Cincinnati Tea PartyWISN (ABC-Milwaukee) is reporting that scientists at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee used a synchronized chaos math application and applied it to climate data over the past 100 years. They have discovered that the air and ocean systems of Earth go through periodic periods of synchronization and de-synchronization. A shift in the climate occurs each time the systems lose synchronization. They are able to explain the various heating and cooling cycles of the past century using this technique.

Their research team found that the warming trend of the past 30 years has stopped and temperatures have actually leveled off since 2001. This fits their theory as the Earth is currently showing the signs of system synchronization. They expect that temperatures will remain steady or even cool for the next couple of decades, until another de-synchronization occurs.

Dr. Anastasios Tsonis brings up a key point in the whole matter. “But if we don’t understand what is natural, I don’t think we can say much about what the humans are doing. So our interest is to understand — first the natural variability of climate — and then take it from there.”  A scientist that uses common-sense… very impressive!

He went on to say, “So we were very excited when we realized a lot of changes in the past century from warmer to cooler and then back to warmer were all natural.” Perhaps man isn’t the main driver of climate change.
