The White House released a new fear-filled National Climate Assessment this week, offering the usual horrifying speculation instead of actual data.
Heck, if the worst-case scenarios in the climate computer models that have been consistently wrong for the past 30 years pan out, John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports could be under water. There could be more hurricanes. Our food will be less nutritious. And it’s all your fault, you evil, air conditioner-using, carbon-spewing, capitalism-loving Americans.
We know Obamarama is going to tax the rich, but I bet many didn't think he would weasel in the carbon tax as quickly as he is going to now. A Romney win would have been bullish for coal producers in the US – but Romney lost, and now so has coal, at least in the near term. The biggest winner from Obamarama? Natural gas.
Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM) is now supporting Obama in bringing a carbon tax to the US.
BOSTON (CBS) — A new proposal on climate change focuses on public health, energy, transportation and basic infrastructure.
Under the plan unveiled Tuesday, $40 million will go to help cities and towns in Massachusetts shore up the power supply and keep the lights on.
Ten million will be earmarked for the coast, to protect it from rising sea levels.
But will it work?
While Gov. Deval Patrick and others painted a dire picture of what global warming might do to us, others are more skeptical.
If you don’t agree that humans are responsible for climate change and the only solution to the problem is sweeping government regulation, then you can go directly to jail! An assistant philosophy professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, Lawrence Torcello, wrote a 900-word-plus essay last week that attacks those who have organized a “campaign funding misinformation.” Torcello claims these individuals should be considered “criminally negligent” for their actions.
The Daily Caller delved into Professor Torcello’s argument.
People who claim to worry about climate change use more electricity than those who do not, a Government study has found.
Those who say they are concerned about the prospect of climate change consume more energy than those who say it is “too far into the future to worry about,” the study commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change found.
That is in part due to age, as people over 65 are more frugal with electricity but much less concerned about global warming.
