It amazes me how a scam can be propagated on such a massive and large scale on a citizenry that is largely un-skeptical and willing to dispense with so much of their freedom for the benefit of left-bent central planners in capitals around the world, some oligarchs and a slew of corporations that seek to benefit from this government-mandated and manipulated windfall. I guess the ozone-hole scare (amazing how we don't hear about that one anymore) was just the test-run for another government-run hoax and scare on a much more massive scale.
The following was written by John Coleman, founder of The Weather Channel. It worth going to the link and reading the whole piece.
The Amazing Story Behind the Global Warming Scam: "So today we have the acceptance of carbon dioxide as the culprit of global warming. It is concluded that when we burn fossil fuels we are leaving a dastardly carbon footprint which we must pay Al Gore or the environmentalists to offset. Our governments on all levels are considering taxing the use of fossil fuels. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency is on the verge of naming CO2 as a pollutant and strictly regulating its use to protect our climate. The new President and the US congress are on board. Many state governments are moving on the same course.
We are already suffering from this CO2 silliness in many ways. Our energy policy has been strictly hobbled by no drilling and no new refineries for decades. We pay for the shortage this has created every time we buy gas. On top of that the whole thing about corn based ethanol costs us millions of tax dollars in subsidies. That also has driven up food prices. And, all of this is a long way from over.
And, I am totally convinced there is no scientific basis for any of it.
Global Warming. It is the hoax. It is bad science. It is a highjacking of public policy. It is no joke. It is the greatest scam in history."
