Earth to Obama: cap and trade is dead

Since the early campaign days, President Obama has promised environmental reforms in the form of a market system. This system became known as “cap and trade.” The argument behind such a system is that a market should be able to lower pollutants based on the buying and selling of “credits.” Polluters would have to buy credits or lower emissions and “clean or green” companies could sell credits. Banks would act as brokers and collect a fee on the trades. This new “carbon credit market” had the potential to make not millions, not billions, but TRILLIONS of dollars for those on the ground floor when the market opened.

There was just one problem. Politically they could not get such a system in place because it would raise the price of everything that required energy to be manufactured, packaged, stored, and shipped some 20 percent or more. Not to mention there isn’t any evidence that such a system would reduce pollution and it in fact seems to embolden polluters because they now have a credit saying they can pollute.

Enter Al Gore and his sponsorship of theories on anthropogenic global warming. His crowning work, for which he was awarded an Academy Award and clinched his Nobel prize, was the film “An Inconvenient Truth.” Almost ironically, the film’s only truth is that Al Gore does go around spreading fear to push an agenda of taxation to fund global governance. But I’m getting slightly ahead of myself and need to rewind a few years.

Daniel Taylor’s article ‘Global warming hysteria serves as excuse for world government’, tells us how globalists intended to use the natural phenomenon of climate change to create a panic of sorts and trick the populace into passing cap and trade style legislation.

“In a report titled “The First Global Revolution” (1991) published by the Club of Rome, a globalist think tank, we find the following statement: “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. All these dangers are caused by human intervention… The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.”

“Richard Haass, the current president of the Council on Foreign Relations, stated in his article “State sovereignty must be altered in globalized era,” that a system of world government must be created and sovereignty eliminated in order to fight global warming, as well as terrorism. “Moreover, states must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies if the international system is to function,” says Haass. “Globalization thus implies that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but that it needs to become weaker. States would be wise to weaken sovereignty in order to protect themselves…”

While these types of quotes raise eyebrows, they are not proof of a global conspiracy. But as with any attempt at cover up, the truth has a way of getting out.

Re-enter Al Gore and his awards and touring around the world convincing us that carbon was a pollutant and that we must pay more taxes to fight carbon or else. They nearly had everyone convinced with the help of the globalist friendly corporate media.

But mere weeks before a major international conference on climate change in Copenhagen where world leaders had hoped to sign an agreement on cap and trade systems for all nations, a whistle blower copied emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) which contained correspondence from a number of scientists involved with the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. (IPCC) These emails revealed a concerted effort on the part of the scientists pushing the theory of anthropogenic global warming, that claims man, his inventions and lifestyle are the reason the world’s climate is changing.

They threatened, they lied, they used modified data and then conveniently lost the original data samples so that their experiments could not be re-created. All this evidence has led to a collapse in the cap and trade agenda of Al Gore and the globalists and is commonly referred to as “Climategate.” But someone forgot to tell Obama even on the same day as we find out the same university broke British Freedom of Information law by withholding data that might have been useful to anthropogenic global warming skeptics.

Yesterday during his State of the Union address, Obama claimed that there was “overwhelming scientific evidence on climate change,” he of course meaning the 2,000 some IPCC scientists that believed in anthropogenic global warming and some of which were just suspended and discredited in the Climategate scandal. Oh did I mention they all LAUGHED OUT LOUD when he mentioned it?

It’s all a big joke to them. There is the proof in the SOTU address. Need any more proof of their utter contempt for the average people of this nation?

It’s all about taking our money and using it to fund their global agenda, spread some of it around to their friends and families, or maybe a dictator here, or a terrorist there. Only nowadays they have already looted all of the tax money of everyone that is alive. Now they are taking from our children and our unborn grand-children. Talk about taxation without representation, they aren’t even born yet!

We don’t have to worry about some tyrant usurping our republic anymore. For you see, it has already occurred. Yes today, we in the United States live in the tyranny of the Unitary Executive and the fascist imperial agenda of his Congressional plutocracy. The United States of America is no longer free, most just don’t know it yet. No today to be free in the United States, your name would have to be GE, or Ford, perhaps AT&T.

UPDATE 2/18/2010: Conoco, BP, Caterpiler pulling out of Obama’s Climate Partnership refering to global warming as a con. BAZINGA!

    Oh man, someone just reminded me that Al Gore was Clinton’s point man on NAFTA and promoted it as a good thing for “America” but he must have only meant Canada and Mexico.

  2. Dougetit

    Wow, this is an eye opener.. We need to get out the vote in big numbers to have any chance of taking our county back.

    God Bless America

  3. woody188

    Thanks, that’s kind of what I shoot for. Spreading the good word of freedom and liberty. But don’t talk to me about voting. You won’t like my thoughts on that subject.

  4. byreen

    Might I add for those that care to look further into the ever expanding fissure of our demise, the writings of Howard Zinn. As a respected dissident author he was never afraid to take on the self touted experts.
    Alas, he passed away recently.. R.I.P.

    Nice shootin Woody…

  5. bryan mcclellan

    The ultimate pitch determines the scream’s effectiveness of scope, and whomever hears a siren song of nations under assault but deafens response plays too much two card Monte.

    Ah, I want for whimsy of conversations none so dire. Unstack the stacked deck, it’s but for solution, to replace the dealers.

    Again want is my master, I hope to find me with Americans in like kind.

  6. griff

    As with every thing else Woody, they go full steam ahead despite silly facts and figures.

    They’ve captured the kiddies on television and in the classrooms. Hysteria abounds in all manner of their upbringing, now that the State owns the children.

    Sir, this temperature extreme is simply a localized phenomenon as a function of ‘global warming’… /: |

    You can expect extreme fluctuations across planet earth as the the poles melt off per the experts with wild, unusual weather patterns in the years to come.

    Take heart that while you are freezing your butt off someone is roasting theirs off complaining its never been so hot before in their area.

    Again, its all linked to ‘global warming’… :o))

    Yep. Climate Change, nee Global Warming, nee Global Cooling, nee Global Warming, nee Global Cooling, and on and on.

    Thanks Woody for the great blogpost. : )

    Hey, they best not screw around with my right to shop until I drop.

    If they screw around with my access to the stores and sales in my area, then they best watch out. : |

    How are things out your way Carl? I heard the recession finally caught up to the Northwest region.

    Folks, I read every post, but I don’t want to dominate any discussion of my work, so please don’t be offended if I don’t reply to every comment.

  11. Dougetit

    I respect your thoughts…

    Not intending to get you started woody188, but we tend to take voting for granted here. But countries who don’t have the right to vote are doomed to dictatorship… See what is happening to our freedoms because less than half of the population votes. Hopefully the American population will wake up before it passes the point of no return.

    I was being facetious, as I’m sure you are. We get this kind of weather every year. In fact, we’re just coming off our annual January thaw – a week or two of mid-winter warmer temps. A spring teaser, as you will.

    Extreme weather is nothing new, but the alarmists blame every thing from the earthquake in Haiti to tornadoes to hurricanes on we evil humans.

    While warmer temps do indeed seem to be the impetus for increased hurricane activity, the last couple of years we’ve seen very few hurricanes. A direct result of the sun being in a dormant, cooling phase.

  13. Carl Nemo

    Hi Griff,

    I believe you said you are an upstate New Yorker. I’m familiar with upstate New York, beautiful country and surely not the stereotype that’s associated with NYC. You’ve even got wolves, probably strays from Maine. :))

    Passing through Buffalo in my years, I’ve witnessed some mind-boggling amounts of snow dumped on the roads as I passed through in the wintertime from Cleveland to either D.C. or Boston. I grew up on the outskirts of Cleveland with Lake Erie providing our shoreline and wintertime “snow support”.

    I always enjoy the unique smell of the air off the Great Lakes, nothing like the oceans. Even the smell of rotting fish at the shoreline on powdery sand beaches is quite different.:D I live in the Pacific Northwest nowadays post retirement, but I’d like to take a summertime RV trip of the lakes before I pass from this plane. I better get crackin’ I turned 65 this week. :O

    Yeah I’m three hours to the east of Buffalo in the Mohawk Valley (Drums Along the Mohawk). Lake effect snow country. We haven’t had much snow this year yet, mainly due to the colder temps and dipping jet stream. Setting the stage for horrendous storms come late February and March, ala ’93 and ’94.

    I travel to Pittsburgh once or twice a year for Steelers games, and the weather between Erie, Pa and Rochester, NY is always treacherous.

    Happy birthday.

  15. Carl Nemo

    Thanks for the birthday wish. : )

    Usually I downplay my birthday, but three blowout parties later, I’ve made up for the lost years that I didn’t accept such. 😀

    Yep Griff, it is beautiful out here. Washington is known as the “Evergreen State” due to the large presence of conifers and the rains that start in late October and last until end of the following June in most years at least for us folks that live West of the Cascade range. It’s too overcast and rainy for many folks. Many Californians that moved up have since moved back because the rain was simply too much for them. East of the Cascades it’s a more arid, high plateau environment. It’s wheat and cattle country out there with blue sky winters and gets far colder than our maritime environment which is moderated by the Pacific Ocean.

    Generally the winters are 40 degree nights with rain and more rain. Occasionally a tongue of Arctic air will push down East of the Cascades and force frigid sub 32 degree air through the Columbia River Gorge westward settling into the Willammette Valley. The price to be paid for the soon to return warming is freezing rain which plays havoc with power lines, trees etc. Monster mudslides also take out homes during the winter.

    Although I know you don’t care for TV per se, if you get a chance, watch an episode of “Axemen” on the History channel and it will give you an idea of Washington, Oregon and Idaho look even in these times. There’s still alot of “nowhere” to get lost in.

    One nice thing about the West is you can easily lose people and civilization rather quickly and get into wilderness areas. So if the balloon goes up folks will stand a better chance of surviving as opposed to those living in the major cities and burbs. Upstate New York is still wild n’ wooly too once you get away from population centers.

    Most folks will die of constipation and boredom anyway because they won’t have access to flush toilets, t-paper and their steady diet of junk food and TV … / : |

    Things in Clark County Washington are quite bad. The other day a local station mentioned that unemployment is in excess of 14% but I suspect its much higher when you figure in the long term unemployed or those that are now working several jobs to equal the income from the decent job they once had prior to the “bust”.

    I’ve been retired from the Navy since 1995, retiring at age 50, my wife retiring a few years later from the private sector We’ve been married 44 years this August, but didn’t have children so consequently we’ve landed well in our senior years. We live on 7 acres in Ridgefield, Washington along with our family of cats, a dog and some livestock which are all basically pets.

    The recesssion didn’t simply catch up with this area, but was hit immediately due to the incredible amount of housing starts and the influx of Californians into Oregon and SW Washington. The county has laid off the greater portion of its personnel in the building codes division with housing starts at an all time low. We also have a host of high tech industries due to the pure water that’s found in our area. Pure water is necessary for the rinsing of circuit boards and other components in the manufacturing process. Of course the water is further purified and deionized.

    We have a class structure here where the younger folks who are just now raising their families aren’t doing well, but the host of “fat cat” retirees the living is easy and good. You go shopping around here and the parking lots are filled with Mercedes, Lexus, LandRovers etc. I drive a newer model Honda Civic and my wife a Caravan. I belive in the motto…”waste not, want not”… 😀

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    When I work at some of the prestigious colleges such as Colgate, Hamilton College or Cornell, I’m amazed when I see students with their “go green” propaganda stickers plastered all over the place hop into their Lexus or BMW SUV’s and scream out of the parking lot. No doubt late for a beer pong match.
